Roland DG Encourages VG/SG Owners To Switch To New Inks


VG/SG owners who switch to new TR2/TE2 inks can enjoy the benefits of increased performance and cost savings. This is due to a discontinuation of TR ink.

The ink conversion process must be performed together with firmware and RIP software upgrades, enabling VG/SG owners to achieve a host of advantages and new features:

• New TR2 and TE2 ink perform better in scratch resistance, alcohol resistance and washability.
• The new ‘True Rich Color’ preset maximises the capabilities of the VG and SG series with the new ink to produce stunning graphics.
• The VG series with TR2 ink is certified for long-lasting results by the 3M MCS Warranty, providing shop owners and their clients with assurance of the quality and reliability of their graphics.
• The VG and SG series with new TR2 ink is also certified by the Avery Dennison ICS Performance Guarantee.
• Ink consumption is greatly reduced due to an automated maintenance sequence.
• VG/SG owners also obtain a host of new features to improve Print & Cut accuracy and usability, including crop mark options for more stable cutting performance when cutting laminated printed materials, and a PerfCut mode for printing, cutting and die-cutting in one seamless operation.
• The Roland DG Mobile Panel 2 lets users perform control panel functions, including test printing and cleaning from your smartphone or tablet using a Bluetooth connection.
• The VG and SG series support the latest TU-4 take-up unit (sold separately), enabling various media to be taken up with increased accuracy and stability.
• If a printhead clogs, the Nozzle Mask function can continue printing while using the remaining printheads, reducing downtime in the event of an emergency.
