The PC-600’s reformulated resin
inks in process colors – cyan,
magenta, yellow and black - continue to offer water-resistant,
scratch-resistant and UV-resistant outdoor durability without
lamination. New specialty spot colors of orange and green
have been introduced for the PC-600. Other spot colors include
red, blue, and white, as well as, metallic gold and metallic
silver, distinctive colors available only with thermal transfer
technology. 1200 dpi photo-quality prints and colorful graphics
can be printed directly onto vinyl 2” to 24” wide.
Wax ribbon cartridges are available in process colors for
heat transfer applications. A new gloss finish ribbon is
available exclusively for the PC-600 as an option to give
a polished appearance to wax ribbon output. The PC-600 also
has 1200 dpi photorealistic print quality and significantly
improved printing speeds when using wax ribbons. Printing
with wax ribbons on the PC-600 is twice as fast as using
resin ribbons and twice as fast printing with wax ribbons
on the PC-60.
Every PC-600 includes Roland ColorChoice
(RCC), a true Adobe© PostScript©
3 multi-platform software RIP to provide powerful RIP, cutting
and output functions. RCC works with Windows or Mac operating
systems. Simply create your design in your favorite software
graphics application and hit “Print”. Bitmaps and contour-cuts
can be designed from your graphics software applications.
RCC is fully Adobe© PostScript© 3 compatible. For multiple
copies, RCC will RIP the original, then, automatically lay-out
and print unlimited multiples. You can check the page layout,
rotate, mirror, and more before printing. RCC contains a
block-print function for improved registration on extra
long jobs. ICC profiles are included for Roland media and
ribbon cartridges to ensure perfect color output every time.
Saver and Power Saver Modes
In response to industry demand for improved
running costs, the PC-600 introduces the ‘ribbon-saver’
function. The ribbon will not move in non-print areas, saving
an average of up to 20% per color depending on image design
and color spacing. The PC-600 also features a new power-saving
mode to conserve energy when the machine is not in use.
Sending data or pressing any key on the control panel quickly
now features an automatic sheet cutter that allows
the user to slice off already cut vinyl jobs cleanly
and easily via
a front panel button or via a software command. The

production. The media cutter can separate vinyl, reflective
and thermal transfer materials.
||The PC-600 now ships with a clear cover
so that the user can
view the print job in progress.

Media Roller Brake
As with the current PRO series cutters,
each PC-600 will include a stand and a media holder system.
“Sheet Hangers” come attached to the unit, ensuring parallel
placement of the media roll to the machine, which is essential
for straight tracking. The PC-600 will also include a media
roller brake that will allow the user to pull the material
taut through the machine without unraveling the roll.
