Melbourne signage firm orders Roland DG printer “sight unseen”

The machines arrived at the Melbourne firm last week and replaced two other Roland DG machines: a Soljet Pro4 XJ-640 printer-cutter and Soljet Pro III XC-540 printer-cutter.

Managing director Dean Wright said the printer would mainly be used for point-of-sale, real estate and promotional work – and that Roland DG was always his first choice.

“I bought the machine and paid the deposit sight unseen. I knew straight away that that would be the machine I would go for in terms of keeping up with the technology,” he told ProPrint.

“The key is definitely the speed of the machine and the new technology with the twin print heads. I also know it’s reliable being a Roland owner – the first machine I ever bought was a Roland.”

The eight-staff operation also runs an EFI Vutek wide-format printer, Sias Serifast UV screen printer and Fotoba cutter, said Wright.

Chris Gherini, a senior sales representative from distributor Australian Visual Solutions, said ADS Australia had invested in a reliable and productive printer that could work at high speeds and produce fine detail.

About 15 Roland DG XF-640 printers have been ordered since the machine was launched in April, according to Roland DG.
