    Hey y'all, our 126 r2r is nearing end of life and were just looking at options. Need a 126" roll to roll, leaning more towards uv rather than latex and need some insight into what other operators think or what they are running. if anyone can help, id really appreciate your thoughts!! thanks!

    They come with the LUS120 inks, they are flexible to a degree, are you thinking car wraps?

    You would be fine doing that type of application, if you want, I can run a panel or two for ya and you can do your own testing if you want.

    This machine is in the $80k range with dual roll and white? Can you laminate it easily or is the UV ink thick like their flatbeds and other brand uv inks?

    Is it durable enough for wall applications unlaminated?

    The dual roll attachment is standard already. Yes, you decide in the beginning how you want your ink configured. I would recommend doing liquid lam for the wallcoverings. The prints my client are doing seem to be pretty dang durable (At least on the clear film they print)
