Roland DG to inspire at FESPA 2018

Roland DG will demonstrate the largest range of advanced print and cut, UV-LED and dye-sublimation solutions in six different areas on Stand B20, Hall 2.2 at FESPA 2018. In addition, the hospitality area will also serve as a gallery for ‘real-life’ applications that illustrate the efficacy of the output produced on the company’s printing systems.

Having introduced eco-solvent wide-format printer/cutters more than 20 years ago, Roland DG continues to move the market forward, with the TrueVIS range, which delivers ‘true print & cut without compromise’ in terms of quality, versatility, productivity, reliability and return on investment.

The Roland TrueVIS VG-640/540 (1625 mm and 1371 mm) and SG-540/300 (1371 mm and 762 mm) printer/cutters are equipped with newly-developed Roland DG FlexFire printheads, which allow better control of the ink chamber plate, for a higher firing frequency. The FlexFire printheads also deliver precision droplet placement in three sizes, and an approximately 25 percent wider print pass when compared to previous Roland DG models. The combination of the FlexFire heads and TrueVIS INK delivers stunning fine details and vibrant colours at a production speed of 10.6m2 per hour in high-quality mode on vinyl and up to 34.7m2 per hour on banner material in dual CMYK ink configuration.

Roland also offers a range of options for those looking for a separate print and cut solution, including the award-winning Roland SOLJET EJ-640 eco-solvent printer, which has been recognised for its outstanding performance and delivers productivity and quality output combined with low operating costs. Advanced features include an integrated tri-heater system, excellent media compatibility, precise media transit, Roland VersaWorks Dual PDF-based RIP, and Roland OnSupport remote monitoring software, which makes unattended printing easier than ever.

Also on the stand will be Roland’s advanced, yet affordable, VersaEXPRESS RF-640 eco-solvent printer. The EJ-640 or RF-640 can be configured either as stand-alone devices or paired with a cutter, such as a Roland GR series, as an integral part of an efficient print then cut workflow.

Only last year Roland DG introduced a new generation of professional vinyl cutters to its CAMM-1 series, the Roland GR-640/540/420. The GR Series has been totally redesigned to deliver best-in-class cutting quality and productivity due to increased accuracy, speed, media versatility and additional cutting features. The new ergonomic L-shaped design of the integrated stand and machine ensures stability and precision cutting, even at high speed and for difficult media with a single cut.  Models are available in 1651mm, 1397mm and 1075mm cutting widths to allow users to pair them with the inkjet printers they are currently using.

In the fashion apparel field, digital printers such as the Roland Texart XT-640 can quickly provide custom one-off and small-lot production. A dye-sublimation transfer printer designed especially for the production of textile decoration, sports and fashion apparel, soft signs, polyester banners and flags, curtains and other interior décor applications, as well as promotional goods and personalised gifts, the Roland Texart XT-640 features dual printheads to achieve high-speed performance at a usable print speed of 41m2/h. The rail and frame structure has been reinforced to facilitate highly detailed printing with precise ink droplet placement.

Optimised for dye-sublimation transfer printing, Roland Texart inks deliver bold and vibrant colours and deep, rich blacks. Orange, Violet, Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow combine with Roland DG’s Texart process ink colours to produce hundreds of vivid fluorescent hues. Further, the proprietary Roland DG Fluor Color Library swatch palette can be installed in Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW for unmatched ease of use and colour customisation. Simply clicking the desired colours in the swatch palette allows for quick and easy incorporation of pastel colours and eye-catching fluorescents into the dye-sublimation output.

The trend for highly personalised items is growing and customers are using Roland’s VersaUV LEF printers to build profitable businesses by providing on-demand custom printing services for a range of personalised products via e-commerce sites, retail kiosks or as an addition to their existing print shops. The Roland LEF-300 model brings the VersaUV series into the mass production environment with a number of features to facilitate the customisation and decoration of items in high volumes.

At FESPA Roland will demonstrate the VersaUV LEF-300 and LEF-12i, from the series of UV-LED flatbed inkjet printers. Exciting production-boosting features on the Roland LEF-300 include an enlarged printing area of 770mm wide by 330mm long. With the Roland LEF-300 it is possible to print on a wide variety of substrates including acrylic, wood, board, plastic, metal, glass plus fabrics and soft materials such as leather and eco-leather*.

A vacuum table makes it easy to hold thin and soft materials in place and the device directly prints onto a huge range of items including pens, mobile phone cases, customised corporate merchandise, signs, personalised awards, giftware, industrial goods, product prototypes and much more.
