During FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 Roland DG Corporation presented live ‘print & cut without compromise’ on its award-winning TrueVIS eco-solvent printer/cutter range.
Roland’s TrueVIS print & cut offers print quality without compromising on versatility and productivity. This includes technical advancements in ink formulation, printhead design, precision control, and firmware engineering. TrueVIS printer/cutters are suitable producing indoor and outdoor advertising, vehicle graphics, banners, posters and displays, labels and decals, packaging prototypes, apparel heat transfers and more.
Roland DG’s eco-solvent TrueVIS inks are Greenguard Gold certified, signifying low chemical emissions that are safe for outdoor and indoor use, without the need for special ventilation or environmental equipment. TrueVIS inks dry fast, reduces ink costs, and produces rich and glossy vibrant colours. Roland printheads fire precise round ink droplets, giving prints more dimension and smoother contrasts. The eco-solvent inks show flexibility in handling different media types.
TrueVIS technology is the result of 20 years of integrated print & cut manufacturing expertise. The technology is packed with connectivity features to support how the modern print professional works today. The Roland DG Mobile Panel allows users to perform control panel functions with their existing smartphones or tablets with iOS or Android operating systems, utilising a Bluetooth connection. This innovative feature provides a rich interface, enabling operators to receive machine status updates, conduct test printing and cleaning functions from their mobile device.
The integrated solution and synergy between the TrueVIS printer/cutter, inks and RIP software offer a smoother workflow and optimised performance. The latest version of Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP features a new core engine that accurately interprets native PDFs as well as legacy PostScript files, including files with transparencies. The precision cutting mechanism facilitates contour cutting of complex designs, thus expanding the range of possible applications such as cutting thick materials for laminated floor signs.
