System Label Sticks with Roland DG and Invests in 'The Beast'

Press release from the issuing company

System Label has recently installed a new Roland SOLJET PRO4 XF-640 wide format printer at its Ireland headquarters in Roscommon. The new machine, ordered from authorised Roland dealer, Neopost, has joined a growing family of Roland printers at the company, including a SOLJET XC-540 and a VersaCAMM SP-300V printer/cutter, and has already gained the respect and admiration of company director, Alan Beirne.  

Says Mr Beirne: The XF-640 has been nicknamed ‘The Beast’ by Roland itself, and it really is living up to its fearsome moniker here at System Label.  I think of it as more of a genuine high production machine than ‘just’ a wide format printer. It’s a complete workhorse and we couldn’t be happier with it. It pretty much runs 24/7, its performance is exceptional and it has already had a major impact on the business and our ability to get our orders out the door and around the world.”

System Label produces an extensive range of custom products – from decals and labels for various industrial applications to RFID, printed membranes, QR codes, product IDs and POS for global blue chip customers in the medical, automotive, agricultural and heavy goods sectors.  Mr Beirne says all of these sectors have one thing in common: “They all require robust and quality-led production solutions from us. This is what we have built our hard-earned reputation on, so when we decided to add another wide format machine to our arsenal, we had to find one that could offer us the highest performance and total reliability under very demanding conditions. The XF-640 has more than delivered us this; it is a truly outstanding machine.”

The Roland XF-640 is the company’s fastest wide format printer to date and has been dubbed ‘the beast’. It incorporates a host of advanced features for high quality, CMYK imaging at a maximum print speed of 102m²/hr. Designed for both durable and stunning outdoor and indoor applications, the XF-640 is the ideal production tool for signs, banners, vehicle wraps, window graphics, POP displays, exhibition show graphics, posters, labels and more. Roland’s newest eco-solvent inks, ECO-SOL MAX2, offer an expanded colour gamut as well as fast drying times to boost production.

Says Mat Drake, Business Manager – Commercial Print, Roland DG UK: “We’re naturally very pleased Alan and his team have had such a positive experience with their new XF-640. This machine was designed to consistently deliver in high production, high quality environments like System Label and it’s a perfect example of a hard working machine that provides great quality output day after day, especially when under the intense pressures of a busy production house.”

Concludes Mr Beirne: “We’re screen printers by tradition, but digital has got to a point now where you can print on demand in lower runs cost-effectively without any compromise in quality.  Our latest investment in digital technology has given us huge production freedom and flexibility. In addition, when you are in a high pressure industry like this with globally-recognised prestigious clients, you need to also be able to rely on more than just the technology. You need to have supply partners who never let you down if something goes wrong or a machine breaks down.  We have always found Roland to be a very active and responsive partner in this regard.  In the rare event there are problems, they are on the case immediately to ensure we minimise downtime.  It’s the whole package and it’s why we’ve remained loyal and keep investing in Roland.”
