Eco-Sol Max Ink
Aggressively bonds to both coated and uncoated media. Safe to use and 100% VOC (volatile organic compound) free. Durable for upt to 3-years outdoors.
Cutting Edge Technology
The SOLJET PRO III XC-540 is the ultimate high-volume production tool for stunning indoor and outdoor banners, signs, vehicles, decals, POP displays and more. Numerous upgrades make this the industry’s most advanced printer/cutter including an impressive maximum print speed of 41 sq m/hr. Engineered to support high-volume environments, the XC-540 delivers vibrant 6 colour CMYKLcLm images, features a tri-heating system and advanced media feed and automatic take-up system, and can be upgraded with an optional dryer/blower.
Easy on the Environment and People
With Roland Eco-Sol MAX technology, sign makers can conduct their printing operations without headaches, dizziness or concerns about the environment. Revolutionary ECO-SOL MAX INK is formulated to be gentle for both users and the environment. Odour is much less than with hard solvent inks and requires no special ventilation or environmental equipment. Eco-Sol MAX is now available in both 220ml and 440ml cartridges.
The Print & Cut Advantage
The XC-540 streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics. By eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics, the XC-540 integrated cutter saves valuable time and effort.
Six Colour Ink System
The XC-540 features 6-colour (CMYKLcLm) ink sets, which produce higher colour quality, gamut and tonal density for stunning images in any print mode. The XC-540 was designed with high-volume production in mind and comes standard with a protective removable tray for Roland’s new 440ml ECO-SOL MAX cartridges. The XC-540 and VersaWorks 2.0 monitor ink levels in either 220ml or 440ml cartridges and post a warning when levels run low.
For laminating graphics, simply remove prints, laminate and reload them for precision cutting. The Quadralign™ four-point optical registration system automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion. The XC-540 can also function as a stand-alone vinyl cutter.
Unsurpassed Print Quality
The XC-540 precisely controls droplet placement in both the print head travel and paper feed directions to provide up to 1440 x 1440 dpi resolution. It uses a digital servomotor to control the media and features Piezo print heads.
Variable droplet technology uses micro-precise ink droplets of three different sizes depending on the type of output. This state-of-the-art technology delivers truly breathtaking output with beautifully smooth, dot-free tones even at high print speeds.
To further ensure the highest print quality, VersaWorks supports industry standard ICC profiles. In addition, VersaWorks comes with several Roland media profiles and is compatible with profiles created through standard profiling packages. An updated list of profiles can be accessed through the Roland@NET service.
New Precision Firing Pattern
When printing at higher speeds, many printers can produce only low density colour with severely reduced image quality. Roland’s unique Precision Firing Pattern was designed to achieve the highest printing speeds possible while maintaining vibrant high density colours.
The XC-540 takes advantage of this advanced firing pattern, which has been optimized for its Piezo print heads. The XC-540’s 6-color CMYKLcLm ink sets produce stunning images with unparalleled image, colour, gamut, density and quality in any print mode. In addition, Roland’s in-line head configuration eliminates the need for lengthy calibration procedures and costly down time.
Blazing Print Speed
In addition to printing fine art reproductions, the XC-540 can produce 360 x 360 dpi signs, banners and POP displays at 41 sq m/hr. With print heads that employ 360 nozzles each, the XC-540 prints large 10sq m. banners in only minutes.
Roland Versaworks Rip 4 included
VersaWorks 4 RIP software features an efficient graphical user interface for consistent, professional results and includes several new upgrades including a spot colour library, and functions for spot colour replacement, clipping and auto-nesting. Together these features ensure added convenience, economy and precision colour reproduction.
VersaWorks allows users to easily import files from their favourite program without a lengthy learning curve. Standard features include the ability to preview jobs on screen, and layout, edit and print functions including nesting, tiling and auto/manual-layout. In addition, users can automatically update VersaWorks through the Internet, ensuring that they are equipped with the latest software version and ICC profiles available. Built upon the genuine Adobe® PostScript® CPSI™ RIP engine, VersaWorks is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7 operating systems.
Advanced Media Handling
A true production printer, the XC-540 features an upgraded media feed and take-up system accommodating rolls of up to 30Kg. for long, unattended printing. Seven permanent repositionable pinch rollers enhance image quality through even the longest print runs. In addition, the XC-540 features media guides, a vacuum platen and twin head heights to ensure correct media feed for thin or lighter media.
Integrated Tri-Heater System
The XC-540’s integrated tri-heater system dries prints quickly even in high-speed modes for immediate finishing, installation or collection by the take-up system. The system features three components: a pre-heater that improves media receptiveness, a print heater to accelerate ink fastness and brightness, and a dryer to accelerate the drying process and improve productivity, workability and scratch resistance. All can be controlled from either the printer panel or Roland VersaWorks.
Now with included Dryer System
To fully take advantage of the XC-540’s high print speeds and exceptional ink saturation, Roland now includes the DU-540 dryer system featuring an additional dryer and blower system. The DU-540 integrates seamlessly with the XC-540 for optimum ease of use.
As with all Roland inkjet printers, the XC-540 is a virtually bullet-proof production machine. With regular maintenance, it will provide years of trouble-free service. But, unlike most inkjets that require daily maintenance, the XC-540 requires servicing significantly less often. The XC-540 ink system features a motor-driven elevator that automatically adjusts to print head height. It has wipers that clean two heads at a time and flush the ink on each pass.
