Take Up System
What it is and how it works
The Roland DG take up system allows you to wind up printed material automatically and manage production with maximum efficiency. The unit fits most Roland DG print and print & cut devices and is easy to install, set up and use. The system includes a convenient front-mounted take-up roller and an advanced tension-controlled take-up unit for optimum media feeding and tracking.
The benefits of the take up system
The take up system allows you to leave production unattended, with the completed job securely wound, and it is particularly useful for long print runs and large graphics such as banners, signs and vehicle wraps. In print then laminate workflows, the take-up system enables an easy and precise workflow from completion of printing to loading and feeding through roll-to-roll lamination units.
The take up unit also reduces media waste and maximises quality of output by automatically tensioning the vinyl, keeping it tightly wound on the reel to help avoid nicks, creases and scratches in the media. All roll-to-roll materials are automatically wound onto the unit to help you maintain a clean and safe workspace while providing an easy storage.
The technical details
With its advanced dancer bar, the take up has forward and reverse wind capability and offers adjustable roll widths, making it suitable for different sized media rolls and applications.
Depending on the device, the take up system supports media up to 50kg in weight and 210mm in diameter. So it can handle a vast range of substrates, from thin poster paper to heavyweight banner material.
