ROLAND DG has introduced the new METAZA MPX-70, the latest in the METAZA series of photo impact printers.
It is a powerful production tool for creating custom, personalised mementos out of hard acrylic and metal surfaces including gold, silver, platinum, stainless steel, brass and aluminium.
Roland's original METAZA photo impact printer was introduced in 2000 as the world's first device to permanently imprint photos on jewellery and other flat items.
The MPX-70 represents the third generation of advanced METAZA technology and has been enhanced with twice the resolution and three times the speed of its predecessor, the MPX-60.
"The MPX-70 is our fastest, most precise METAZA to date," said Roland DG 3D Product Manager, Toshi Yahiro. "We are proud to introduce this state-of-the-art innovation into the rapidly expanding photo marking market.”
“Since its introduction, thousands of METAZA units have been sold, helping entrepreneurs worldwide launch profitable METAZA businesses with a low initial investment - and often with no previous industry experience."
The MPX-70 is as easy to setup and use as a desktop printer and customises eye-catching pendants in less than six minutes.
With a maximum resolution of 529dpi, the MPX-70 offers the resolution required to accurately reproduce even the most delicate gradations, lines and text.
It personalises objects up to 90mm x 90mm x 20mm (3.54" x 3.54" x 0.78") and is compact enough to fit on a small desk with a standard desktop or notebook PC running Windows 98SE or later.
The MPX-70's advanced carbide-tipped stylus cartridge helps ensure quality output and smooth, uninterrupted operation. The cartridge contains nine tips and is designed to automatically replace tips as needed. Empty cartridges are easy to replace.
