Roland DG Introduces the VersaSTUDIO BN2 Series Desktop Printer/Cutters to Make Professional Graphics Production More Accessible

Hamamatsu, Japan, September 7, 2023 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced the addition of the BN2-20 and BN2-20A desktop inkjet printer/cutters to its VersaSTUDIO product lineup.

“Since our founding in 1981, we have been providing digital solutions that enable anyone to easily do what could only be achieved previously by people with special skills and experience.,” said Tony Miller, President of Roland DG’s Global Sales and Marketing Division. “Today, our compact, easy-to-use, and affordable desktop products are marketed under the brand name VersaSTUDIO and include a broad range of popular desktop solutions, such as inkjet printers, cutters, engravers, metal printers, and foil transfer laser decorators.”

The new BN2 series offers a choice of two powerful eco-solvent desktop devices that produce outstanding print quality and have precision contour cutting that allows creation of automatic contour cut graphics, photos, and text in any desired shape. They use the same high-definition printheads, eco-solvent inks, and cutting technology as our wide-format printers. The new BN2 increases the printing speed approximately 4 times greater than the previous models. Despite the compact size, they can produce a wide variety of high-value-added items, from original T-shirts, posters, stickers, labels, and unique-shaped displays, beautifully and quickly.

According to Miller, the BN2 series was designed to offer excellent usability, even for beginners. Following the streamlined installation, you can immediately begin production. The printers have a simple design with a power button equipped with multi-color LED lights. The color and blinking pattern provide an instant indication of the printer’s status.

All functions can be easily performed with the included Utility software which supports convenient operation through easy-to-understand icons with high visibility and intuitive, quick access to the menu items you want to use. The printers also come standard with software that can be used for everything from design creation to output with simple operations. In addition, the newly designed Frontal Access Structure allows all tasks, from media setup to maintenance, to be performed from the front of the printer for a more efficient use of space.

Roland DG Connect, a cloud-based service is also included. This service provides more proactive support in the event of errors and visualization of the printer’s operating status, allowing you to use the printer with peace of mind.

Customers can choose from two models, the CMYK plus White 5-color BN2-20 and the CMYK 4-color BN2-20A, according to their requirements. Design and output software that would normally have to be purchased separately are included as standard features, making the printer price easy for first-time users to get started. A comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty and optional maintenance contract are also provided.

“Since the first model was introduced, over 25,000 units of the BN Series have been sold, encouraging taking on new challenges by many different customer segments, including entrepreneurs, companies bringing out-sourced production in-house, and educational institutions committed to STEAM education practices,” Miller said. “With further advances in productivity and usability, the BN2 series opens the door to greater creativity and business success for even more people. We will continue to expand our VersaSTUDIO series lineup to encourage new challenges around the world.”
