Product Description
VersaSTUDIO in Education
Compact print-and-cut technology for superb results and maximum versatility. Large format-printing and CNC knife-cutting capability in a neat, desktop package.

The new VersaSTUDIO BN-20 is what design departments have been waiting for! A neat desktop machine which delivers durable, high-quality print results then (for lighter media) cuts out the design in one seamless operation. TechSoft are delighted to introduce this breakthrough in print and cut technology from Roland DG.

The VersaSTUDIO BN-20 is (in effect) two machines in one. As a large-format printer, it uses advanced Eco-Sol inkjet technology so low-odour, high quality and durability is assured. As a knife-cutter VersaStudio BN-20 has all the capability and features of the hugely popular Roland CAMM 1 range. Both features are controlled from 2D Design and output can be print only (for banners or posters), cut only (for vinyl media, stencils, etc.) or print-and-cut (for printed stickers, labels and custom graphics). For packaging work, you will need our specially formulated Printable Card for Eco-Sol Inks, output is best handled in two operations. Thicker media needs more time to let the print dry (whilst drying the machine can of course be used to print other jobs) so best results are achieved by printing with crop marks, allowing drying time and then cutting using BN-20’s optical registration system.

Materials and Applications
TechSoft supply a wide range of media for the BN-20 so production can target a broad customer base. For textiles, heat-transfer media can be printed in vibrant colour and then contour-cut ready for heat pressing to the garment. Bright graphics on dark backgrounds - no problem! On purchase, you must decide whether you need Metallic Silver ink for metallic and pearlescent effects, or White ink for faithful reproduction of more subtle shades.

As a wide format printer, the BN-20 is a valuable, versatile resource for creating banners, posters and artwork.

The BN-20 will handle media up to 505mm width so will be ideal for producing batch runs of vinyl graphics from roll material. In-house production of window signage, promotional stickers, vehicle wraps and floor graphics has never been easier or so affordable. A2 media capability, of course, makes the BN20 ideal for printing card packaging nets. Once dry, the same machine will then cut and score (or crease) the card for perfect results.

Printing Card Packaging Nets
Print and Cut card packaging is a two stage process direct from 2D Design. Print the card together with registration marks, allow to dry, then re-insert into the BN-20 to score (or crease) and cut.

Should I Choose the 4 Colour, Metallic or White Configuration?
The BN-20 delivers superb print quality using CMYK ink technology and a fifth colour – either an additional magenta in the 4 colour configuration, or metallic silver, or white.

White Ink
The white ink option allows white images to be printed onto any media colour and provides a mask for overprinting. This allows faithful, vibrant colour reproduction on dark, pastel or even black media.

Output for the White option is via Roland VersaWorks software which is supplied with the machine.

Metallic Silver Ink
Metallic silver ink provides the same ‘mask’ but adds a further dimension. Metallic silver print resembles polished-chrome and, once overprinted in colour, shines through to give any number of stunning pearlescent or metallic effects.

Metallic Silver option machines output direct from 2D Design which is usually the preferred option for schools.

4 Colour
Only want to print in CMYK, no problem. The additional option machines output direct from 2D Design which is usually the preferred option for schools.

Note of Warning
The BN-20 colour configuration cannot be changed after purchase so choose carefully!

BN-20 White Configuration
Roland VersaSTUDIO BN-20
White Configuration. * With the white configuration only, there is NO direct output from TechSoft Design V3/2D Design V2, files must be outputted first to Roland VersaWorks software and then sent to the machine. Only four colour CMYK output is possible in this way, no “white” output is possible as the VersaWorks printer driver requires a ‘spot colour’ which is not a feature of TechSoft Design V3/2D Design V2.
