Roland DG provides something for everyone

Roland DG reported that it had enjoyed a successful showing at the recent Sign & Digital UK exhibition, where the attractions on its stand included Roland users Peter Colman of Classic Lines Plus Signs, Alex Liggett of the Vinyl Guys and Joe McNamara, Head of Graphics for Renault F1 Team, all of whom were available to share their experiences and offer relevant and impartial advice to visitors.

 Also taking pride of place on the stand was Roland’s latest innovation in print and cut, the TrueVIS VG2, which builds on the success of the first-generation VG series with the addition of over 40 enhancements. Coupled with the new, advanced TR2 ink, passers-by were impressed with the quality and vibrancy of its output.

Those seeking a print-only solution, discovered that the RF-640 Eight Colour is notable for its sharp and vibrant output, courtesy of the green and orange ink that significantly extends the colour gamut to produce the brand matching colours that help to create high-impact signage and graphics.

With more and more businesses seeking to diversify beyond signs and graphics, there was also a huge amount of interest in Roland’s first direct-to-garment (DTG) solution, the BT-12. Visitors were impressed with its compact size and ease of use, as well as the quality of the printed T-shirts and tote bags that were produced on the stand.

Another attraction was Roland’s latest innovation in UV printing, the LEF2-200, which made its UK trade debut at the show. Following analysis of its predecessor, this latest device has been developed to better fit the needs of customers, offering faster production times and ease of use.

Returning to SDUK for a second year, Roland’s S-Series wide-format UV printer also attracted a lot of attention, with Dan Lathall, Product Support for Roland, spending a fair portion of the three-day event creating unique and interesting applications, using the S-Series’ generous printing height and belt-fed bed to print directly on to wooden pallets, ceramic tiles and plastic electrical conduit boxes.

Although the show is over for another year, Roland still extends an open invitation to anyone wishing to become better acquainted with its innovative new devices. Interested parties can arrange to attend a live demo at Roland’s UK headquarters just outside Bristol, or alternatively, they can contact their local Roland dealer, with full details provided on the Roland website.
