Roland DGA has launched its TrueVIS™ VG2 series of 54-inch and 64-inch wide-format eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutters. Engineered for demanding sign and graphics printing projects, the new TrueVIS VG2 printers offer comprehensive color choices, improved machine efficiency, and increased print-and-cut accuracy for true unattended production.
In addition to incorporating a host of technological advancements for optimum overall performance, the VG2 series uses Roland’s new specially formulated TR2 ink.
The inks are available in three different configurations:
- 8 colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black, and White
- 8 colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black, and Orange
- 4 colors: Two sets of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black
The ink choices, including new Orange ink, allow for a wider color gamut and more color control than ever before.
A new Multiprocess Color Function enables Orange to be used as a process color. A new True Rich Color preset allows you to combine vibrant color with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones for stunning graphic output.
TrueVIS VG2 printer/cutters with TR2 ink are certified for long-lasting results by the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty providing assurance of the quality and durability of graphics on qualified 3M materials.
The VG2 with TR2 ink has also earned Avery Dennison’s ICS performance guarantee, and is certified GREENGUARD Gold for safe indoor graphic applications.
For unsurpassed image quality and printing precision, VG2 printer/cutters are equipped with Roland DG FlexFire™ print heads that produce neutral grays, vivid colors and smooth skin tones, even at high speeds.
The VG2-540 and VG2-640 also feature improvements for increased printing and cutting accuracy as well as reliable, unattended operation. For example:
New middle pinch rollers raise automatically prior to starting the cutting process. New crop mark options for cutting laminated printed materials, combined with optimized pinch roller pressure, ensure maximum cutting stability.
A new, included TU-4 take-up unit supports two modes according to the type of media being used. This further stabilizes the machine for a smooth post-printing process.
