Roland DG Launches New Wide Format Inkjet Printer With Green Ink


The new TrueVIS VF2-640 features a new TR2 green ink, which, when combined with vibrant orange ink as process colours, enables unprecedented gamut expansion and richer visual expression. The VF2-640 also comes equipped with the advanced ‘True Rich Colour’ preset, which maximises the potential of both printer and ink.

As the first print-only model to be added to the TrueVIS series, the VF2-640 inherits a host of functions from the TrueVIS VG2-640/540 printer/cutters released in March 2019. In addition, the VF2 is capable of producing previously uncharted colours for stunning printed graphics.

According to Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, Roland DG developed the award-winning TrueVIS series of inkjet printers to deliver the ‘Power to Excite’ by achieving the highest ever print quality available for durable graphics. ‘Vibrant colour can now be combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones that will amaze customers,’ he said.

The VF2-640 incorporates Roland DG’s innovative FlexFire printheads for high-speed, high-precision ink firing, a new media take-up unit with increased stability for smooth post processing according to the type of media chosen, and the Roland Colour System Library for quick and easy colour matching of target colours. When paired with Roland DG cutting devices, print/cut data can be automatically processed by the included VersaWorks 6 RIP software for efficient production of stickers, labels, floor signs and much more.

‘Roland DG is committed to delivering unique, high-quality products that expand the horizons of digital printing with uncompromising visual expression,’ Shigenoya said. ‘As confirmation, the TrueVIS series continues to be the most highly regarded wide format inkjets by customers and key industry organisations, as well as by the world’s leading independent provider of testing and analysis for the document imaging industry. In the last year alone, TrueVIS inkjets were the recipient of seven major industry awards. I know that the VF2-640’s ability to deliver breathtaking graphics will not only meet, but exceed the needs of industry professionals involved in producing high-quality sign graphics.’
