The ink also offers opportunities for packaging prototypes, e.g. the results on silver media are breathtaking. Posters The BN-20 prints your posters and photographs in the highest quality. The metallic ink adds an extra touch of luxury. Mixing the silver metallic ink with other colours produces a huge range of metallic tints. Cutting vinyl You can also use the BN-20 as a cutting plotter. The machine can be used for cutting out vehicle lettering, window stickers, signs and many more items. Heat transfers for textiles You can use the BN-20 to print fantastic heat transfers for T-shirts, caps and other textiles right at your desktop. The machine automatically cuts out the contours, so you can apply the transfers immediately. The sparkling metallic ink gives your transfers a special touch.*1 Eco solvent or water-based ink Point of sale displays Use the BN-20 to create eye-catching displays in all shapes and colours. It is as profitable to make a unique display unit as to produce a whole range of products. Choose between Roland DG’s award-winning Eco-Sol MAX ink and water-based FPG ink. Eco-Sol MAX is perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. Choose between a configuration of exclusively standard colours (CMYK) and a configuration of standard colours plus metallic silver or white. Prints produced with Eco-Sol MAX last up to three years in outdoor applications without laminate.*2 For a longer life, laminating is recommended. The water-based ink is ideal for indoor applications.*3 The ink is available in four colours (CMYK). Stickers and labels Thanks to the Roland DG’s integrated printing and cutting functions, you print and cut your design in one smooth workflow. All kinds of labels and stickers are easy to make; original covers for mobile telephones and laptops, for example. *1 Use metallic silver only as a spot colour on textiles. If you mix the ink with others colours, this reduces the washability. *2 Lifespan is based on accelerated weather tests by Roland DG. The effective lifespan varies depending on the location and application. Some applications, including car stickers, should be laminated. *3 The ink type is chosen at the moment of purchase.

About metallic silver Ink Due to the nature of the metallic silver ink, the pigment in this ink will settle in the cartridge and ink flow system, requiring you to shake the cartridge before each use. Outdoor durability is up to three years for CMYK inks, one to three years for metallic silver ink, depending on the media used. Roland DG strongly recommends lamination for both indoor and outdoor graphics to ensure the quality of metallic silver ink. www.rolanddg.eu Roland DG Benelux nv / Houtstraat 3 / B-2260 Oevel (Westerlo) TEL: +32 (0) 14 57 59 11 / FAX: +32 (0) 14 57 59 12 / firstname.lastname@example.org Roland DG Deutschland GmbH / Halskestrasse 7 / D-47877 Willich TEL: +49 (0) 2154 8877 95 / FAX: +49 (0) 2154 8877 96 / email@example.com Roland DG Benelux NV – Hungarian department / firstname.lastname@example.org The BN-20 is supplied with everything you need to get to work straight away: simple design software and professional printing software.
