The ROQ Now is a fully digital powerhouse.

By applying ROQ´s know-how when dealing with digital printing and oval format machines, we were able to create an industrial DTG printer that combines this new digital technology with high production and quality.

To achieve its high speeds of around 200 pieces per hour - either in variable data or copies of the same artwork for small-run jobs - the ROQ Now is offered with two inline pre-treaters, 4 flash-cures and 4 heat-presses that are all perfectly configured for a complete automated workflow.

Despite coming with such a complete set of features, our ROQ Now can be operated by only one person, eliminating the need to have a dedicated group of people running it, allowing your operators to dedicate their time to other tasks while maintaining a steady production rhythm. 

Due to this automated workflow, you will be able to accept more jobs, regardless of the order size, and confidently fulfil any demands your customers might have.

Because it was made from the ground up to work with the web-to-print market, our proprietary software will allow you to interface with your own ERP production software, helping you be even more efficient during job management.

Owning a ROQ Now will open doors for you and your company, allowing you to respond to orders in a much faster way while achieving even higher standards of  quality.
