Roland DG unveils new wide format printer

Roland DG, a manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, has launched its new TrueVIS VF2-640 64-inch wide format inkjet printer.

According to Roland DG digital printing business division vice-president Kevin Shigenoya, the company developed the TrueVIS series of inkjet printers to deliver the ‘Power to Excite’ by achieving one of the highest ever print quality available for durable graphics.

As the first print-only model to be added to the TrueVIS series, the VF2-640 inherits a host of functions from the TrueVIS VG2-640/540 printer/cutters released in March 2019. In addition, the VF2 is capable of producing previously uncharted colours for printed graphics.

The VF2-640 features a new TR2 green ink, which when combined with vibrant orange ink as process colours, enables a gamut expansion and richer visual expression. The VF2-640 also comes equipped with the advanced True Rich Colour preset, which aims to maximise the potential of both printer and ink.

“Vibrant colour can now be combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones that will amaze customers,” Shigenoya said.

The VF2-640 also incorporates Roland DG’s FlexFire printheads for high-speed, high-precision ink firing, a new media take-up unit with increased stability for smooth post-processing according to the type of media chosen, and the Roland Colour System Library for colour matching of target colours. When paired with Roland DG cutting devices, print/cut data can be automatically processed by the included VersaWorks 6 RIP software for efficient production of stickers, labels, and floor signs.

“Roland DG is committed to delivering unique, high-quality products that expand the horizons of digital printing with uncompromising visual expression,” Shigenoya said.

“The TrueVIS series continues to be the most highly regarded wide-format inkjets by customers and key industry organisations. In the last year alone, TrueVIS inkjets were the recipient of seven major industry awards. I know that the VF2-640’s ability to deliver breathtaking graphics will not only meet but exceed the needs of industry professionals involved in producing high-quality sign graphics.”
