Roland DG will be showcasing their eco-solvent print and cut technology live at Print Efficiently 2013 expo to be held in the UK, Apex Digital Graphics showroom in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire from the 1st to the 10th of October under the theme “Make New Technologies Work for You”.
Visitors will be able to see live demonstrations of Roland DG’s wide format digital printer/cutters, the VersaCAMM VS-540 and SOLJET PRO4 XR-640 over a two week period beginning on 1st October.
Mat Drake, Business Manager – Commercial Print, Roland DG (UK) said, ‘As a production solution, wide format inkjet is an excellent way to supplement declining commercial print margins and this collaborative event is the perfect place for Roland to demonstrate how easily its wide format inkjet solutions are integrated efficiently into a typical commercial workflow.’
The award-winning Roland VS printer/cutter series is the fastest and most versatile VersaCAMM yet. With print speeds up to 23.1m²/hr, integrated print and cut capabilities, superior media handling and unattended printing features, the VS helps printers make more money, faster.
Available in four widths – 1.62m (64″) , 1.37m (54″), 1.07m (42″) and 0.76m (30”) – the affordable VersaCAMM VS series achieves stunning results across applications such as signs, banners, posters, vehicle graphics and wraps, packaging prototypes, exhibition displays, labels, point-of-sale displays and garment decoration heat transfers. For maximum versatility, the VS series comes in four ink configurations, with the option to include innovative metallic and white inks, for luxury and eye-catching effects.
