Roland IU-1000F Site Prep
There is a lot to consider when looking at the purchase of a production flatbed UV printer.  Delivery... how is are you getting it into your building?  Installation... where is it going to go?  Electrical... do you have the capacity to run the machine in a stable environment?  And spacing... did you know that a 4' x 8' printer requires at least a 15' x 22' work space? 

Prior to the sale of the IU-1000F, Roland DGA requires that a site survey is completed, reviewed and authorized.  We are sharing a copy below so that you can familiarize yourself with the environmental requirements to run such a machine.
