Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, announced the expansion of its already extensive UV-LED print portfolio with a new large-format UV-LED flatbed printer, the IU-1000F. Capable of printing on an impressively wide range of substrates and objects at up to 116 sqm per hour , the IU-1000F is designed to meet the diverse needs of busy print service providers and commercial printers, with unsurpassed performance.
As life cycles and requirements for communication tools such as outdoor and indoor advertising, event decoration, and store displays become shorter and more diverse, the sign and display industry is increasingly becoming one-stop shops offering quick response. Under such challenging circumstances, high performance large-format UV flatbed printers that enable a more efficient production process and that are capable of printing on various materials for a wide range of applications are attracting greater attention than ever before.
According to Kohei Tanabe, the President of the DP Business Division, the IU-1000F boasts breakthrough speed and quality while also eliminating the need for mounting and drying processes. “It is a powerful solution for the sign and display or print production business that seeks more efficient and faster-turnaround production capability. By offering increased productivity, material compatibility, image quality, ease of use, and all the other aspects of this product, I am confident that the IU-1000F will achieve increased profitability for printing businesses," he said.
The IU-1000F will be unveiled at major exhibitions of large format printing solutions such as Viscom, Italy (October 10th to 12th) and Printing United in North America (October 23rd to 25th). Sales will start in Europe, North America and Japan from the first quarter of 2020.
