"Since its founding Roland has pioneered new manufacturing processes based on unique digital technologies that control the XYZ axes or lateral, longitudinal, and vertical movement. Originally applied to the development of pen plotters for designing and drafting applications, its product line soon evolved to include cutting plotters which replaced the pen with a cutter. Both of these product lines were based on our control technology for the XY axes. The Roland DG line of output devices eventually grew to include color printers equipped with inkjet heads and cutters, and 3D milling machines that controlled the XY and Z axes.
Today, Roland's main line-up of products consists of wide-format inkjet printers that support a variety of industries including the sign industry and machine tools such as milling machines and engraving devices designed to streamline manufacturing processes.
In order to meet evolving customer demands and anticipated market growth, we remain committed to expanding the ways in which our customers can transform their imaginations into reality.
In 2014 Roland luaunched its first 3D printer, the monoFab, based on the DLP process and available for €4.000."
