Bierne tames the Beast!

Bierne tames the Beast!


System Label has recently installed a new Roland SOLJET PRO4 XF-640 wide format printer at its headquarters in Roscommon, Ireland.

The new machine, ordered from authorised Roland dealer, Neopost, has joined System Label’s growing family of Roland printers, which now includes a SOLJET XC-540 and a VersaCAMM SP-300V printer/cutter, with this latest addition already gaining the respect and admiration of company director, Alan Beirne.

He observed:  “The XF-640 has been nicknamed ‘The Beast’ by Roland itself, and it really is living up to its fearsome moniker!  I think of it as more of a genuine high production machine than just a wide format printer. It’s a complete workhorse and we couldn’t be happier with it. It pretty much runs 24/7, delivers exceptional performance and has already made a major impact on the business and our ability to get our orders out the door and around the world.”

System Label produces an extensive range of custom products, including everything from decals and labels for various industrial applications, to RFID, printed membranes, QR codes, product IDs and POS for global blue chip customers in the medical, automotive, agricultural and heavy goods sectors.   According to Alan Beirne all of these sectors have one thing in common: “They all require robust and quality-led production solutions, which is something that we have built our reputation on, so when we decided to add another wide format machine to our arsenal, we had to find one that could combine high performance and total reliability under very demanding conditions. The XF-640 has more than delivered; it is a truly outstanding machine.”

The Roland XF-640 is the company’s fastest wide format printer to date and incorporates a host of advanced features for high quality, CMYK imaging at a maximum print speed of 102m²/hr. Designed to output both durable and stunning outdoor and indoor applications, the XF-640 is the ideal production tool for the full range of signmaking applications.  It uses Roland’s newest eco-solvent inks, ECO-SOL MAX2, which offer an expanded colour gamut as well as fast drying times to further boost production.

Alan Bierne concluded  “We’re screenprinters by tradition, but digital printing has now got to the stage where you can print lower runs cost-effectively, without any compromise in quality.   This latest investment in digital technology has given us huge production freedom and flexibility, plus the peace of mind that comes with knowing that if there are any glitches, Roland is on the case immediately to ensure we minimise downtime.  It’s the whole package!”
