New Roland DG Eco-Solvent Printer/Cutter Wins EDP Award


Building on Roland’s 35 years of manufacturing expertise, 16 generations of print and cut innovation and feedback from thousands of experienced users across the world, the TrueVIS VG2 large-format inkjet printer/cutter has been engineered to meet, and exceed, the quality and production needs of today’s most demanding print professionals. It recently won ‘Best Print & Cut Solution’ in the European Digital Press Association (EDP) Awards.

The winners of the EDP Awards are decided by an independent panel of judges from Europe’s 21 leading trade publications, who evaluate the most exciting technical launches from the past 12 months based on their ‘achievement, quality and cost efficiency’. When judging the Roland TrueVIS VG2, the panel said, ‘Roland DG has not adhered to existing concepts, but has redefined product development’. The judges were particularly impressed by the system’s breadth of colour gamut, optimised colour accuracy and colour reproduction capability, plus a host of technological advancements to deliver high-precision print and cut performance.

First, answering the need for ever-faster turnaround times, the VG2’s stunning quality prints are ready to laminate and then immediately finish in just six hours* for true same day installation. Setting the new standard in head-turning print quality, the TrueVIS VG2 offers new Orange ink, which expands the colour gamut even further, delivers incredibly realistic colour reproduction and enables super-accurate matching of corporate brand colours. The new TrueVIS TR2 ink offers optimised colour reproduction and greater realism to printed images, plus outstanding performance in terms of stretch, adhesion, rub resistance and outdoor durability.

In addition, the VG2 is powered by feature-packed VersaWorks 6 RIP software that delivers an optimised workflow for efficient production. VersaWorks 6 fully supports PDF 2.0 and enables complex files to be processed directly in the RIP.

All this, plus more than 40 intelligent and intuitive enhancements over the previous award-winning generation and unwavering reliability, backed by Roland DG’s industry-renowned service and support.

* Tests performed by Avery Dennison on MPI Range digital media. When using this media, prints produced on VG2 with TR2 ink can be laminated after a six-hour period when rolls or images are properly ventilated and loosely wound.
