The BN-20 packs everything into one, powerful, profit-producing package. With award-winning eco-solvent inks including metallic and white options, a range of material compatibility and integrated contour cutting, the BN-20 is easily the most versatile print device in its class. The BN-20 is perfect for creating t-shirt graphics, poster prints, stickers and decals – all from the comfort of your desktop.
The VersaStudio streamlines the production process by automatically contour cutting its printed output and eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics. For laminated graphics, our Quadralign® four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and reload them for cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.
A simplified media feed system automatically aligns roll media for printing. This intuitive system detects and adjusts the pinch roll wheels to the width of the installed media, ensuring proper placement and tracking. The BN-20 supports roll media from 6 inches up to 20 inches in width and weighing up to 13 pounds.
An entry-level design package, R-Works allows users to import photos and images for insertion into design layouts for creating custom print and cut graphics. R-Works also includes a vector art library of stock designs.
This easy-to-use RIP software is the hub of production for the BN-20 and allows even novice users to take full advantage of advanced capabilities. Proving that powerful doesn’t have to mean complicated, VersaWorks enables you to manage all your print and cut output, including ICC profile support, ink level adjustment tools, proofing capabilities, error diffusion, variable data printing and cropping, tiling and nesting options.
Not only does the BN-20 desktop inkjet printer/cutter open up a world of graphics possibilities, but it does it with the highest level of quality. Featuring a piezo inkjet print head that prints up to 1440 dpi, the BN-20 delivers exceptional quality prints with smoother gradations, richer density and deeper image saturation for photographic and vector output.
All functionality of the BN-20 is handled through included software which controls basic machine functions, status and calibrations. An intuitive device, the BN-20 simplifies print production and helps users easily manage output and costs by monitoring replacement of consumable parts like wipers and contour cutting blades.
The BN-20 comes with the Energy Star® seal of approval. It’s your guarantee of maximum energy efficiency and lower electric bills. Energy Star is a government-backed program that helps businesses and individuals protect the environment through superior energy efficiency.
