      RIPCAdvancedJET AJ-i inkjets take advantage of Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology, our patent-pending technology that virtually eliminates banding by optimizing masking patterns and dot placement at the edge of each pass. With Roland Intelligent Pass Control, consecutive passes are overlapped and feathered so they literally become one continuous image. As a result, finished prints reflect unmatched image quality overall with smoother gradations and dense, flawless solid colours in every print mode.

      Roland Intelligent Pass Control also increases productivity by delivering the same print quality at higher speeds. AdvancedJET AJ-i series prints up to 25 percent faster than previous models on banner in Standard print mode.*

    • Great Print Quality

      The AJ-i delivers a maximum print resolution of 720x720 dpi for precision six-colour CMYK+LcLm graphics with superior ink bonding, scratch resistance and alcohol resistance. For optimum performance across a wide range of media, the AJ-i features three print head heights that can be easily adjusted.

      Popular for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications, mesh is particularly well suited for graphics that may be exposed to excessive wind or any graphic calling for a unique sheer look. Unlined mesh offers many advantages over lined mesh including a lower cost per square foot. In addition, unlined mesh is easier to print, handle and transport, and it does not generate liner waste.

    • High-Capacity Ink Delivery System

      Ink System The AJi comes equipped with high-capacity 1 liter ink cartridges for seamless unattended printing. An advanced ink delivery system allows replacement of cartridges without pausing.

    • Advanced Tri-Heater and Blower System

      The AJi features an integrated tri-heater system and blower that make both high-speed printing and take-up possible. The heating system consists of three elements. A pre-heater opens pores in the media to improve its receptiveness. The print heater accelerates ink fastness and brightness by ensuring the ink is absorbed. Finally, the dryer and blower accelerate ink drying for better productivity, workability and scratch resistance.

    • Low Maintenance and Ownership Costs

      The price and installation costs of many comparable printers can total several hundred thousand dollars. By comparison, an AJi printer can be purchased and installed for a fraction of this cost. Operational costs for the AJi are lower as well due to an innovative automated intelligent maintenance system that saves ink and reduces down time. This advanced system performs routine maintenance tasks automatically, eliminating the need for time-consuming daily manual cleanings. The AJi’s intelligent maintenance system even adjusts the maintenance schedule automatically depending on the room temperature. As a result, manual cleaning around the print head and capping station is required only every two weeks.

    • Automated Media Feed and Take Up System

      Automated Media Feed and Take Up SystemThe AJi includes an automated media feed and take-up system to facilitate precision unattended printing. This pre-assembled unit includes convenient front-mounted feed and take-up rollers and an advanced tension-controlled take-up system for optimum media feed and tracking. A powerful drying system quickly dries ink and media for high-speed applications. The system handles rolls weighing up to 99kg.

    • Print Head Protection Plates

      AdvancedJET AJ-i printers are enhanced with the addition of print head protection plates.
