*1 The length of printing or cutting is subject to the limitations of the program.
*2 Using Roland specified media, loaded correctly, temperature:25C (77F), humidity: 50 %RH, all pinch rollers are used, 25 mm or more for both right and left margins and 35 mm or more front margin,excluding expansion or contraction of the media, and all correction and adjustment functions of this machine have been made properly.
*3 Using Roland specified media, print travel of 1m.
*4 Using Roland specified media, cut travel of 1m.
*5 Range for assured repetition accuracy: Length 1,000 mm
*6 Provided that media length is under 1,000 mm. Excluding possible shift caused by expansion/contraction of the media and/or by reloading the media.
*7 Using Roland specified media, data size: 1,000 mm in the media-feed direction, 480 mm in the carriage-movement direction. No lamination. Automatic detection of crop marks at 4 points when media is reloaded. Excludes the effects of skewed movement and of expansion and contraction of the media.
*8 Warm-up is required after power up. This may require 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the operating environment. The preset temperature may fail to be reached 35C (95F) depending on the ambient temperature and media width.
