Looking for input on extended warranty for Roland

Started this discussion. Last reply by irving donaldson Mar 15, 2013. 4 Replies

Hi all,We have a VS-540 with a warranty that expires soon.  We were planning to get the extended warranty through Roland (though I am really not sure which one makes the most sense). Recently a local…Continue

"Zakk L, you might not understand how the warranties work. They do not come from Roland direct. Roland grants warranties through their local and national dealers. It is usual for customers to get their warranties from the dealer they brought their…"

"Thanks for your input guys, but I think my question was misunderstood.  I am not on the fence at all about whether or not to get an extended warranty. I am seeking input as to whether I should get one of the warranties from Roland or the one…"

"We bought a Roland from Imprintables because of the tech who would be installing and servicing our machine.  Not all techs are the same.  As far as the extended warranty, it depends on how well you maintain your machine and what your risk…"

"Another point to consider: Yes OEM inks are more expensive BUT they are quality controlled to garuntee the same gamut (output) color range every time. It is expensive to quality control inks like this and that cost is refelected in theprice we pay.…"

"All inks not created equal.... Most white inks contain titanium dioxide as the pigment, as rutile and anatase in tetragonal crystalline form. However, growing concerns over the known toxicity of heavy metals have led to the replacement of many…"

"I would stick with OEM. I've heard the generics are watered down (don't know this first hand, just heard it). Also, I've heard using non OEM can affect your warranty."

Looking for feedback on STS Inks

Hi All,I am looking to see if anyone has any first-hand experience with STS inks.  They claim to be 100% compatible where you do not have to flush the lines and can switch back and forth between their ink and OEM with no issue.  We have always only used Roland OEM, but man, what a price difference. We have the CMYK+ Lc+Lm+Mt+W configuration, but would, of course only be looking at non-OEM for CMYK+ Lc+Lm portion. Are there other brands that are good or should be avoided like the plague?  MAybe…See More

"To build on Irv's note: set a dry time in the printer controls tab of 15 minutes. Then after it runs down the timer, it will feed back to origin and you can run the second job. For a more opaque white, select overprint (also under printer…"

"-Your white needs to be aggressively agitated to give you consistency. You will have to rely on your circulation system to take care of what is already in the lines and on a 540 there is a lot in the lines. However, before the job starts shake the…"
