Irvine, CA. March 7, 2002 Roland DGA Corporation today introduced the 64-inch SOLJET SJ-600 solvent printer. It joins the 54-inch SC-500 solvent printer/cutter in Roland’s growing SOLJET family.
“The SOLJET is extraordinary in many ways,” said Rick Scrimger, Roland Senior Product Manager. “Without any need for special environmental or lamination equipment, the SJ-600 produces durable solvent graphics with up to three years of outdoor durability*, achieves up to 1440 dpi resolution, and has a price tag under $22,000. Yet, signmakers will love the SOLJET most for its quality and reliability.”
The SOLJET is an industrial strength solvent device engineered with solid construction, clean lines and a powerful feed/control motor. With a one-year onsite warranty, every SOLJET is built to provide years of top performance. “By integrating several Roland technologies – SOL INK, SOLJET Certified media and ColorChoice RIP software – the SOLJET provides a complete, factory-bundled solution for creating a variety of indoor and outdoor graphics,” said Scrimger. “It’s a huge leap forward for the entire signmaking industry.”
Roland SOL INK (CMYK LcLm) has a unique, low-volatile chemistry that allows signmakers to print photorealistic, solvent graphics without having to purchase special ventilation or environmental equipment. In a non-toxic printing environment, signmakers can produce signs, banners, exhibits and vehicle wraps that are water and UV resistant. SOL INK is also less expensive to run than traditional pigment ink.
SOLJET Certified Media (SCM) include a glossy scrim banner and four patent-pending vinyls from Avery Dennison – Easy to Apply premium cast vinyl, premium calendered vinyl with removable or permanent adhesive, and an economy calendered vinyl with permanent adhesive. Avery Dennison developed these specially treated, adhesive-backed vinyls exclusively for the Roland SOLJET. The SOLJET is also compatible with select Roland Performance Guaranteed Media, Piezo Certified Media and Proof Quality Media. Only graphics in the most grueling environments, such as on vehicles and floors, require lamination or clear coating.
