Roland has announced a new ink, the EUV4 Eco UV ink developed specifically for use with its VersaUV UV-LED inkjet printers. Roland has changed the chemistry to reduce the odour and the shrinking of thin film materials like BOPP, PE and PET when curing.
It’s available in a new larger 500ml cartridge as well as the standard 220ml cartridge (white ink is only available in 220ml cartridges). It will be available by the end of this month.
Roland DG has also released a new third generation of its Eco-sol Max solvent ink. Roland claims to have improved the overall performance including the drying time. It will be offered as an upgrade to existing users of Roland solvent printers, complete with Roland support. Roland says its simple enough to upgrade an existing printer that most customers will be able to do it themselves.
It’s available now in both 220cc and 500cc cartridges in England, Scotland and Wales though Irish customers will have to wait until January of next year.
