Roland DG Announces the EU-1000MF UV-LED Large Format Flatbed Printer with Outstanding Price-Performance
Hamamatsu, Japan, July 1st, 2021 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, today announced the EU-1000MF, a large format UV-LED flatbed printer with a maximum media size of 1,220 (W) x 2,440 (D) mm.
Tony Miller, President, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, “Since the launch of our first inkjet printer in 1997, Roland DG has led the sign market in image quality, product reliability and customer service. The new EU-1000MF large format UV-LED flatbed printer builds upon these strengths by offering high-quality printing and unmatched support at a great price and productivity level that will appeal to a wide range of customers.”
According to Miller, the printer is capable of beautiful imaging on a wide range of materials up to 95mm thick for a large variety of applications, including sign graphics, event and store displays, décor, and small-lot/ high-mix custom goods. The EU-1000MF is equipped with six printheads in a staggered array for printing up to 27.6m2/h in standard CMYK mode and enabling it to handle approximately nine rigid 4’ x 8' (1,220 x 2,440 mm) boards per hour for indoor decoration and display. In CMYK+White standard mode, the EU-1000MF can print 14.3m2/h, or enough to print about four boards. The UV-LED lamp instantly cures the ink, making it fast-drying and eliminating the need for post-printing drying. The ability to print directly onto a variety of materials such as acrylic, PETG, PVC, foam, PC, wood, and aluminum composite boards eliminates the need to print on roll media and then mount on a board, reducing post-processing time and costs.
In addition to Variable Dot Printing Technology, which uses different sizes of ink droplets with high precision, Roland DG’s acclaimed True Rich Color print setting makes it possible to achieve a higher level of output quality by combining both "vividness" and "naturalness" in a single print job.
The EU-1000MF also offers a high level of safety. It is equipped with four emergency stop switches and a safety sensor that stops the printer to protect the operator and printer. The UV inks are GREENGUARD Gold certified for low VOCs, making them safe to use in indoor environments.
"In recent years,” Miller said, “as communication tools have become more diverse and output times shorter, there has been an increasing demand for faster, more cost-effective delivery of a wider range of print services. The EU-1000MF is the ideal printer to meet these needs in terms of functionality, price, and support. We look forward to continuing to respond to our customers' needs and to contributing to the development of the digital printing market by providing more people with the joy of bringing their images to life.”
The product’s sales territory will be gradually expanded after its initial launch in Southeast Asia.
