Roland DG wins three SGIA 2019 awards

Roland DG Corporation has announced that three of its products, the TrueVIS VG2 series printer/cutters, TR2 ink, and the Texart RT-640M multifunction dye-sublimation printer, have won 2019 Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) ‘Product of the Year’ Awards.

Roland DG’s TrueVIS VG2 printer/cutters received top honours within the ‘Roll-to-roll/Solvent/Latex (under 80 inches)’ category, while the company’s TR2 ink and Texart RT-640M printer were recognised in the ‘Digital Inks – Eco-Solvent/Solvent/Latex’ and ‘Roll-to-Roll Disperse Ink on Textile’ categories, respectively.

SGIA’s recognition of the TrueVIS VG2 series follows the same product winning an ‘Innovation Award’ at the 2019 ISA International Sign Expo earlier this year in Las Vegas and ‘Best Print and Cut Solution’ in the EDP (European Digital Press Association) Awards, which were also presented this year.

The TrueVIS VG2-540 and VG2-640 with TR2 ink, which combine excellent print quality, versatility, productivity and ease of use, are next-generation printer/cutters that incorporate FlexFire print heads that jet GREENGUARD Gold certified TR2 inks in three different configurations, including CMYK, plus additional Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Light Black, White or Orange. These ink choices, including new Orange ink, allow for a wider colour gamut and more colour control than ever before. In addition, the VG2 series has earned certifications for long-lasting results from the industry’s leading media manufacturers, including the 3M MCS Warranty and Avery Dennison’s ICS Performance Guarantee.

The new Roland Texart RT-640M is an intelligent multifunction dye-sublimation printer that provides the freedom to print directly onto coated polyester fabrics, or to sublimation transfer paper, using the same specially formulated Texart SBL3 sublimation inks. Innovative, reliable and easy to use, the RT-640M simplifies dye-sublimation production with its direct-to-textile option, while also maintaining the versatility of printing to transfer paper for creating sublimated apparel, décor, rigid signage, and hard goods too.
