Hi There,

2 out of 3 solvent printers sold in the world are Roland they cant all be wrong, you will get the new Roland VP-540 print at cut at only a bit more than your budget,only Roland offer print and cut in one machine.leasing may be a more affordable option.

Speak to an independant engineer and ask him which machines break down the most ,despite their dominance those i have spoken to visit Rolands the least.

Regards
