Black and white and Monochrome large format plotter now in singapore!



A Clean, Productive and Reliable Workhorse Rowe Large Format Monochrome plotter[/caption]
Roth+Weber, or ROWE as it is most commonly known as, has been in the wide format market for almost 60 years! You may not have heard of this brand before, but it is set to make big waves in the monochrome printing market here in Singapore.
Why? you may be wondering. Well in order to know the answer to this question it is important to know a little more about this company so that you have a better understanding.
First here are some facts that you should be familiar with before going forward :
  1.  It is the only large format laser machine that is still wholly manufactured in Germany.
  2. Through USC Solutions Pte Ltd, full support is provided along with all spare parts and key personnel trained to handle this machine here in Singapore
  3. It is extremely reliable and a true workhorse.
  4. Rowe is a focused manufacturer that only deals with Large Format equipment and unlike other manufacturers with many different product lines, Rowe remains purely in the large format market.
  5. ROWE has won a number of awards and accolades in terms of technology, some larger brands have only recently been 'inspired' by Rowe product designs.
So, let's explore this company a little more in depth. The company as a leading manufacturer of perfect solutions for A0 document processing develops and produces all products within its facility- 100 % Made in Germany.

ROWE has been concentrating on specialization in wide format for more than 60 years. Scanners, printers, controllers, folding systems and cutting technology developed and manufactured by us.
The decisive advantage for the customer is obvious: all ROWE products are absolutely compatible with each other thereby ensuring efficient mapping of business processes. In addition to this, because ROWE is so focused on the large format industry, it knows intrinsically the needs and demands of users.

The medium-sized organization with its headquarter in Niederdreisbach (Rhineland-Palatinate) was founded in 1955. Today the company has achieved an international reputation and is active in over 90 countries all over the world. This worldwide phenomenon is accelerated by the simple fact, that customers trust and rely on products made in Germany more than any other country. The dedication to quality and performance while still maintaining affordability is the key to ROWE success.
One reason for this is the absolute focus on research and development. The most important drive for innovative activity is the company’s own center for research and development. This area was extended yet again in summer 2015 by the construction of a second test center.
ROWE is one of the most innovative IT companies in Germany and was awarded the “Goldmedaille der deutschen Weltmarktf├╝hrer” (Gold Medal of German World Market Leaders) twice at the same time. In the two categories “The World Market Leaders” and “The Family Business”, ROWE was given the awards for its previous successes and its future prospects. The awards were presented in Berlin by German Foreign Secretary Frank-Walter Steinmeier.


There are so many customers, who worry about reliability and performance. They also often ask me where the machines i propose to them are manufactured in. So usually i have to reply, china. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with a made in china product especially when it comes with a full warranty and supported by a big name brand.

The crux of the matter is, given a choice, many Singaporeans would pound for pound purchase a German Made machine vs a China Made machine.

The issue is, that all of the large manufacturers who are in this industry are making their machines in China or nearby countries. This leaves the customer with really no choice.  Secondly, the perception of a 'made in Germany' product is that it will be exceedingly expensive compared to its nearest competitor. Well, this is a myth, the machines that are made by Rowe are extremely affordable and when comparing between machines a quality, precision made and versatile solution like Rowe will always come out tops.

So stay tuned, as we delve into each of these machines and learn more about why this large format machine is set to make waves in Singapore.
If you would like to see the machine for yourself, do not hesitate to contact us and we will give you a full understanding and demonstration of the marvelous piece of technology.

The Fastest Possible Large format A1 and A0 wide format plotter in Singapore.

Print Color and Black and White Faster than ever!

When it comes to plan drawings, especially those used in construction and engineering. Many customers are still using a traditional large format laser printer to get the job done. This is primarily because it has been the best option for those customers who need fast print outs and are concerned about costs.

The truth is, another alternative does exist, and this comes from the revolutionary Pagewide series of large format machines. It promises to be a game-changing technology capable of replacing multiple units of machines into a consolidated device powerful enough to meet the needs and demands of its users. The best part, its faster and cheaper to print in both color and black and white than all existing current technology.

In this article, i would like to highlight the very basics of this technology and then expand upon it with machines in this series.

The major problem that faces many companies today is productivity, productivity and the lack thereof has a ripple effect within any organization. One of the things all offices do on a regular basis is print, be it drawings or documents. The printing process can be either a seamless workflow or it can be extremely cumbersome, it is the difference between long hours or going back on time.
I know it may sound silly, to think that a printer can have such implications, however, do take a look at this video to understand a little more about why a seamless workflow is important especially in peak periods. Although the video is highlight issues within a print service providers environment, similar situations occur in large format printing in offices all over Singapore.


So how and what is Pagewide Technology, simply put as the name implies pagewide is a technology that caters for printing over the entire "page-width" hence the name page wide. The general understanding of inkjet printers is that it is a single printhead that moves back and forth at the same time with the paper moving forward. This technology means that instead of moving the printheads, the entire width of the printable area is covered by a printhead and now the paper travels beneath it. So the only thing that moves is the paper moving forward! Take a look at this video to understand this technology.
The resulting effect of this is that now you have large format printers, printing in seconds vs what would take a traditional inkjet printer much longer to complete. Now i know some of you who are used to "laser printing" will have reservations and i encounter this very often, my customers often ask me "marco won't prints printed with inkjet smudge or smear when it comes in contact with water?"
This is probably something you also consider when purchasing a printer, to this i say all prints that are printed with HP Pagewide technology are water resistant and will not smear or smudge when it comes into contact with water..more about that in another article.

So now that you know a little bit about the technology this is the result of the pure speeds the machines can achieve, 
  • 6 A1/min , 10 A1/min, 15 A1/Min, 20 A1/min and the fastest 30 A1/min
  • Now imagine a full color A1 drawing being completed in just 3 seconds and costs almost identically to a monochrome print.
The value of the proposition is exceedingly high, because what you have achieved if you choose to invest in this system is reduced costs per copy for color prints, top notch productivity, drawings which now can work as tools and fewer devices for your IT team to manage.
Lets face it, we live in a world full of color. Displays keeps getting better and better each day. Softwares such as BIM and other tools which are now being deployed in the reprographics market aim to give architects, engineers, consultants and more the right tool for doing the right job.  The future of printing and print technologies will move away from laser machines and now be enabled in devices such as these.
We will elaborate more in the coming blogposts, however if what we have said to you appeals to you and you would like to know more, feel free to contact me or to learn more.
