Roland DG introduces the Future of Printing
At Sign and Digital UK 2019, Roland DG will focus on showing the newest additions to its catalogue on Stand F30.
Following the recent release of the TrueVIS VG2 series in early March, this new device will be making its UK exhibition debut and will demonstrate how lots of small changes can add up to a game-changing device.
The VG2, which has a new ink configuration that facilitates the use of orange ink, thus significantly extending the possible colour gamut, also boasts 3M MCS and Avery ICS certification, making it the perfect machine for the production of applications such as vehicle wraps.
Also on display will be the VersaEXPRESS RF-640 8 Colour, which has been impressing sign and print companies since its launch at last year’s Sign and Digital show. The latest addition to the VersaEXPRESS family, this device incorporates an additional four ink channels on top of the standard CMYK, to feature Light Black, Red, Green and Orange ink. Priced at just £12,999, it achieves the widest colour gamut in its class, with the ability to accurately hit up to 99 percent Pantone plus solid coated colours.
Visitors will also be able to see the latest addition to the VersaUV LEF Series, the LEF2-200. This new machine comes complete with lots of little tweaks and upgrades that make it easier to use. Along with the hardware changes, some LEF2 upgrades have been included in the latest edition of VersaWorks in order to speed up production.
Roland’s S-Series wide format UV printers, which were previewed at SDUK last year, where they received a warm reception, can be used to produce a wide range of applications. Some users print directly onto custom furniture, others print onto lockers, while some just want to print hundreds of phone cases at the same time.
With the versatility of UV printing technology and the continuous suction belt, this machine makes it possible to print onto virtually any substrate as part of a non-stop production workflow. It can dramatically shorten the production cycle by eliminating the need for things such as time-consuming set-up times associated with alternative methods.
Roland’s first ever desktop direct-to-garment device, the VersaSTUDIO BT-12, is sure to cause a stir. A complete DTG solution from Roland, which combines reliable technology, user-friendly software and Roland’s legendary customer support, it offers users an opportunity to access alternative revenue streams, such as the production of customised T-shirts and/or tote bags. Combining a compact footprint, with ease of use and an affordable price, it is the perfect choice for companies wishing to branch out in new directions.
Roland will also be showcasing the new DE-3 engraver by DGSHAPE. Building on the successful technology of the EGX-350 desktop engraver, the DE-3 has been re-engineered to include time-saving features, including the new laser pointer, which significantly reduces set-up time and simplifies the process for less-experienced users. For sign and graphics businesses, this machine can add new capabilities such as durable labelling and product customisation.
Finally, after a year of intense product development, Roland’s technical experts will be available on the stand throughout the duration of the show to answer visitors question and offer advice.
