Roland DG Corporation has launched the Truevis VG-640/540 64” and 54” printer/cutters, a new generation of advanced wide-format, eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutters.

Truevis series printer/cutters are equipped with four newly developed Roland DG Flexfire printheads which flexibly controls the metallic plate attached to the ink chamber, for a higher firing frequency.

“The Flexfire printheads also deliver precision droplet placement in three sizes, and around 25 per cent wider print pass compared to previous Roland DG models,” Roland informed in a press release.

Yuko Maeda, division president of Roland DG said, “The combination of the new Flexfire head and new Truevis ink, engineered specifically for printheads, delivers stunning fine details and vibrant colours.”

“These are delivered at a production speed of 10.6 sq. metre per hour in high quality mode on vinyl and up to 34.8 sq. metre per hour on banner in dual CMYK ink configuration,” he added.

The VG-640/540 also offers seven-colour like CMYK plus Light Cyan, Light Magenta and Light Black or eight-colour like CMYKLcLmLk plus White ink configurations.

“White ink provides excellent opacity for transparent window graphics while Light Cyan, Light Magenta and Light Black offer smooth gradations, perfect skin tones and beautiful images,” the company noted.

The VG-640/540 uses new Truevis ink which comes in 500cc pouches that fit neatly into reusable cartridges which slide into a hidden ink bay for clean operation with less waste.

In dual CMYK configuration, up to one litre of ink can be loaded for each colour, ideal for high-volume production.

According to Roland, the Truevis ink is Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certified, further proving Roland DG's dedication to produce environmentally friendly products.

Included with the VG Series is a new Roland Versaworks Dual RIP software which features a new core engine that accurately interprets native PDFs as well as legacy PostScript files, including files with transparencies.

The precision cutting mechanism of the VG-640/540 is adopted from Roland DG's latest cutting advancements, facilitating reliable contour cutting of complex designs.

“Our goal was to provide an innovative, state-of-the-art solution for our customers' businesses, while delivering optimum production capability for a vast array of signs and graphics,” Maeda observed.

“We will now be able to match the most appropriate head technology to each application and market that we serve, delivering the best available solutions to all of our users,” Maeda explained.

The newly developed Roland DG Mobile Panel allows users to perform control panel functions with their existing smartphones or tablets with iOS or Android operating systems, utilising a Bluetooth connection.

This feature provides a rich interface either directly on, or remotely in range of the VG, enabling operators to receive machine status updates as well as make adjustments and conduct test printing and cleaning functions. (AR)
