Roland DG will highlight wide-format’s role in the packaging sector with its participation at the upcoming Packaging Innovations exhibition being held at the NEC in Birmingham on 27th and 28th February 2013.

The wide-format digital printer manufacturer will be sharing a stand with packaging partners, Esko, and CGS Publishing Technologies. Visitors to stand D4 in the Print Innovations section of the show, will be able to experience first-hand the versatility of Roland DG’s LEC- printer/cutter as well as the ORIS Flex Pack // Web contract proofing solution which Roland believes will revolutionise packaging prototyping and proofing.

Roland’s LEC-540 printer/cutter will be demonstrating the ease with which visually stunning packaging prototypes can be designed and printed. The LEC series allows users to create realistic samples quickly and using virtually any material, including final production stock. The option to print mock-ups with white and gloss ink, and embossed effects on-demand offers real versatility to the packaging sector and gives printers and design agencies the freedom to produce creative prototypes without escalating costs.

CGS Publishing Technologies new ORIS Flex Pack // Web Solution, which includes ORIS software and Roland’s VersaCAMM VS-series of printer/cutters, was exclusively developed by CGS as an on-demand alternative to legacy systems for packaging proofing. The package is a turnkey solution for flexible packaging proofing and mock-up production which delivers huge savings on consumables with no compromise on the quality of the final product. Roland’s VS printer/cutter will be printing a range of prototypes on various materials using white and metallic inks live on the stand.

Steve Chappell, Packaging, Proofing & Industrial Labelling Business Manager at Roland DG, said, ‘We are delighted to be exhibiting at Packaging Innovations again this year with CGS and ESKO. At Roland, we believe wide-format print has an increasing role to play in the packaging sector and we are proud to be the printer manufacturer pioneering this change. We’ve had a brilliant response to the versatility of our LEC and VS series of printer/cutters so far, and we look forward to introducing the benefits to a new audience in Birmingham.’

Roland will also be running an exclusive competition for visitors to the stand with a grand prize for the eventual winner. Visitors to the show can go to Stand D4 during the exhibition for more information on the competition.
