Sabur Collaborates with Roland DG to Develop New Fluorescent Dye Sublimation System

Published on 2011-02-07. Author : SpecialChem

Working in conjunction with Roland DG (UK), Sabur Ink Systems has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fluorescent wide-format ink-jet printer which incorporates dye sublimation inks. Designated the Roland 4+2 Flo, this solution is based on the innovative technology of the established 1.37m SolJet Pro III XC-540MT printer's dual pump and recirculation system and incorporates Manoukian's standard CMYK ink range plus a fluorescent yellow and red.

The introduction of this fluorescent ink range enables two additional, and unusual, colour options to be available in a single printer, with the selection of palettes made easily with the click of a mouse. The resulting colours are vibrant and output opens new doors to print companies wanting to move into the sector for digital textiles, particularly within the sports and fashion industries.

Incorporating both standard CMYK and fluorescent shades from Manoukian, with its long association with screen-printing, sublimation and industrial digital inks, the Roland 4+2 Flo extends the production options available to users wanting to benefit from textile production. Harnessing this specialist ink technology within the Roland SolJet Pro III XC-540, with the fluorescent formulations replacing the option for metallic and white shades, has resulted in a highly productive printing system which represents a cost-effective investment into the field of textile production.

Dean Sanger, managing director of Sabur Ink Systems, comments: "We are expecting a high level of interest in this state-of-the-art printer, with particular demand coming from the fashion industry sector. The Roland 4+2 Flo wide-format system is easy to use and, as such, is certain to appeal to all users who want to broaden their ink-jet production into new areas."
