Roland DG launches an upgrade for TrueVIS VG

Roland DG has announced the launch of its TrueVIS VG Upgrade Programme, which offers current owners of VG-640 and VG-540 wide-format printer/cutters the opportunity to enjoy many of the latest, most advanced functions of the recently-launched VG2 series on their current devices, via a simple conversion process.

The upgrade enables TrueVIS VG owners to make their printer/cutters compatible with the latest TR2 inks, the latest version of the powerful VersaWorks 6 RIP software, enhanced print and cut functionalities, a range of other firmware upgrades, plus a new hardware option that delivers enhanced productivity and efficiency.

By converting their current devices, VG owners will gain access to several exciting VG2 advantages, including GREENGUARD Gold-certified TR2 ink compatibility, with the ability to laminate and then immediately finish prints in just six hours for true same day installation3.

TR2 ink is also certified for long-lasting results by the 3M MCS Warranty, thus providing users with assurance of the quality and durability of their graphics. The VG series with TR2 ink has also earned the Avery Dennison ICS Performance Guarantee certification that provides outdoor durability protection for up to four years and indoor durability protection for up to seven years.

VG owners who convert their devices to TR2 ink will enjoy impressive ink savings of up to 20 percent and find the ink delivers outstanding results in demanding situations where adhesion and rub resistance are crucial. With up to 200 percent stretch, TR2 ink is ideal for use in applications such as vehicle wraps and also offers excellent wash resistance for customised apparel.

By converting their devices, VG owners will also see the richness and colour accuracy of their prints reach even higher levels, thanks to the combination of TR2 inks and the new ‘True Rich Color’ colour management preset.

With the upgrade, VG owners will enjoy a host of new features to optimise print and cut accuracy and usability, plus a number of streamlined sequences to help speed up production. Compatibility with the advanced Roland DG Mobile Panel 2 app allows operators to perform even more functions from a smartphone or tablet, giving them greater flexibility and freedom.

After conversion, VG devices will also be compatible with the new TUC-4 optional media take-up system, which supports two modes for improved take-up accuracy.

VG-640/540 users can upgrade their devices by downloading the specified firmware and the latest version of VersaWorks 6 RIP software.
