Roland 540 Custom Cut

Post by Newbie » Thu Sep 06, 2018 10:40 pm

We are considering buying a used VP-540i or SP-540v.
We are also selling pre cut htv sheets in our shop, And i wounder if the custom cut function can be used to cutting sheets without printing first?
we need to cut 50cm wide rolls of 25 meter into sheets that are 30cm long. i considered buying a plain roll to sheet cutter but its the same price as a used Roland so was thinking this was a better deal with more functions.

And also, wich of these two would you recommend? :)

You could use custom cut to perform a perforated cut to cut your sheets out. The add a sheet cut to cust the remainder of the sheet out, there may be some wastage using the machine this way but it may prove to be an easier option than purchasing secondary hardware.

Due to the age of the SP-540v I would recommend a purchase of the VP-540i, although this really depends on price and condition, the SP is about 10-15 years old and the VP about 8 years old. I would look to compare with an SG-540 which currently retails at £9,999 + Vat.
