Nazdar Signs Distribution Agreement With Roland DGA

SHAWNEE, KS - Nazdar announces an agreement with Roland DGA to distribute Roland's complete line of full color digital printers and plotters. Nazdar, the largest manufacturer and distributor of digital inks, equipment, and supplies in North America, will focus its efforts on behalf of Roland's SC540EX and VersaCAMM (SP-300) printer/plotters.

According to Richard Bowles, Nazdar Vice President of Marketing, "Roland DGA Corporation is highly respected for its leadership in the fine art, photography, sign making, graphic arts, engraving and 3D modeling industries. Its products connect manufacturers of dynamic technologies with creative professionals who use those products. The company's extensive product line make it a great solution for Nazdar customers, especially given the fact that Roland machines are so reliable and durable."

Dave Goward, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Roland stated, "We're delighted to enter into this agreement with Nazdar. The company's knowledge of and leadership in digital imaging products is well-known and we expect that this agreement will permit Roland to serve the US screen graphics industry more successfully than ever."

According to Roland, the SC540EX and the VersaCAMM inkjet printer/plotters incorporate full cutting capabilities with full-color 1440 dpi printing. Each provides a print/cut capability in one simple solution. Both are available with a Roland Color RIP at no additional charge. The SC540EX is Ethernet ready and can easily be placed on a Local Area Network (LAN) and accessed from multiple workstations.

The SC540EX prints graphics directly on to coated materials without emitting harmful fumes eliminating the need for expensive ventilation systems. With a built-in media heating system, the SC540EX prints signs and banners that dry quickly with outdoor durability of up to three years.

The SC540EX prints up to 300 square feet per hour at 450 dpi for the production of signs, banners, POP displays, and vehicle wraps, or it can print up to 1440 x 1440 dpi with variable droplet technology for enhanced clarity. In addition, the SC540EX can contour cut printed graphics automatically without reloading or repositioning and can function as a stand-alone vinyl cutter. The SC540EX also features a four-point optical registration system (The Quadralign®) -- an industry first -- to automatically realign the cutting path and compensate for skew and distortion.

The VersaCAMM is the first printer/cutter available for less than $14,000 capable of outputting durable indoor and outdoor graphics on uncoated media. The 30-inch printer/cutter employs an integrated media heating system and advanced Eco-SOL INK to print a wide range of outdoor, durable, full-color graphics without ventilation.

The machine can contour-cut printed graphics automatically without reloading or repositioning and it also functions as a stand-alone vinyl cutter.

The VersaaCAMM is a USB device, so printing can be done directly from common graphic applications such as PhotoShop and Adobe Illustrator. A Windows printer driver is included with the VersaCAMM.

Both printer/plotters employ the same ink cartridges thus simplifying inventory maintenance.
