Roland DG launches new Desktop Printer Cutters with VersaSTUDIO BN2 Series

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 7, 2023 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced the addition of the BN2-20 and BN2-20A desktop inkjet printer/cutters to its VersaSTUDIO product lineup.

"Since our founding in 1981, we have been providing digital solutions that enable anyone to easily do what could only be achieved previously by people with special skills and experience," said Tony Miller, President of Roland DG’s Global Sales and Marketing Division. "Today, our compact, easy-to-use, and affordable desktop products are marketed under the brand name VersaSTUDIO and include a broad range of popular desktop solutions, such as inkjet printers, cutters, engravers, metal printers, and foil transfer laser decorators."

The new BN2 series offers a choice of two powerful eco-solvent desktop devices that use the same high-definition print heads, eco-solvent inks, and cutting technology as our wide-format printers for outstanding print quality and precision contour cutting. In addition to their compact size, printing speed for the new BN2 series is approximately 4 times greater than previous models, allowing users to produce a wide variety of high-value-added items, from original T-shirts, posters, stickers and labels, to displays; quickly and easily from their workspace.

According to Miller, the BN2 series was designed to offer excellent usability, even for novices, who can begin producing professional print quality items straight from set-up. This simplicity extends from installation to usability through multi-colour LED lights which indicate printer status at a glance.

The included Utility software supports intuitive operation through easy-to-understand icons for quick access to menu items, while the functional bundled software can be used for everything from design creation to output. Also, the innovative Frontal Access Structure allows media setup and maintenance to be performed from the front of the printer for a more efficient use of space.

Incorporating the Roland DG Connect App, which virtually connects the BN2 series printer production and creative output, users get an in-depth view of their printer’s operating status to keep their device/s running at optimum print performance.

Customers can choose from two models, the CMYK plus White 5-colour BN2-20 and the CMYK 4-colour BN2-20A. Each model includes design and output software and comprehensive manufacturer’s warranties as standard, which present an attractive value proposition for first-time users.

"Since the first model was introduced, over 25,000 units of the BN Series have been sold worldwide, with broad applications including start-ups, shifting out-sourced production in-house, and educational settings" Miller said. "With further advances in productivity and usability, the BN2 series opens the door to greater creativity and business success for even more people. We will continue to expand our VersaSTUDIO series lineup to meet the creative needs of desktop professionals around the world."
