"Pump up - removes all the ink from the machine. Then you can take forever to fill ink, to get it going again. The dummy cartridges is for when you are re-inking. Can't remember what locks the BN, but you can use a piece of foam or cardboard to…"

Ink cost on Roland BN-20 vs Versa UV LEF-200

Hello,I own a BN-20 and I'm looking to expand my business and product offering by adding a Versa UV LEF-200.I'm was hoping someone might have a rough idea of the ink / printing cost variance between the two.I understand that they are different animals and do different things. But if I were to print the same exact size images on each printer, how much more or less does it cost to print on the Versa UV LEF-200 than the BN-20?Thanks,MikeSee More

"Is uninking something I should do, or should I hire a tech to prepare the machine for me? I just emptied out the waste bin, so hopefully that will stay low and less likely to create a mess."

"Best to unink it - Pump-Up and then do a fill when you get where you going. If ink spills inside you will ruin your machine. Being unplugged for 20 hours is not an issue - unrestrained ink is."

In the coming weeks or months I will be moving to another state. I'll be taking all of the business equipment in one trip - including my Roland BN-20.I can make the drive in about 16-20 hours. I don't even mind stopping halfway through to plug in the machine and let it do a self-cleaning cycle or stopping at a hotel for the night. In that scenario. I cut my unplugged time to about 2 legs of 9 hours each.Is it safe to leave it unplugged for 20 hours?What, if any, moving prep should I do on the…See More

"If it stays uncapped for 30 minutes you will not need to worry about lines, the nozzles might start to show some distress, but that will clear up with some printing."
