ROLAND DG EXPANDS TRUEVIS LINE-UP
The Roland DG stand provided the first chance for industry professionals to see the expanded TrueVIS product lineup, which now includes resin, UV and eco-solvent models.
Greg Stone, product and marketing manager for Roland DG, said, “The company’s consolidated product portfolio is now grouped under TrueVis for roll-to-roll, VersaObject for flatbed, and VersaStudio for the soho market.”
Stone said, “Roland DG caters for all businesses from the entry level to high volume operations, with a full choice of systems, giving customers the opportunity to choose according to their market. The new resin-based ink system is proving popular.”
The company’s first water-based resin ink printer, the AP-640, is being demonstrated alongside established models including the TrueVIS SG3 and VG3 Series. New models include the LG and MG Series UV printer-cutters.
Stone said, “Visitors to Visual Impact are seeing the way the AP-640 printer can provide natural expressiveness, that takes advantage of the media texture, to give an outstanding imaging result, while also providing added peace of mind with its environmentally-friendly credentials.
“We’re also excited to be showcasing the new LG and MG series UV models, which enable high-definition output and special printing capabilities including three-dimensional expressions for tactile applications.
“This approach is increasingly popular with print buyers who want to add functionality, for applications like braille, or a haptic dimension such as adding texture to artwork reproductions,” Stone says.
The TrueVIS now features ten models, it now has 28,000 users worldwide, and Stone says Roland DG is demonstrating to visitors the “industry-leading” quality of printing and reliability at the show. “
As well as the new TrueVIS models Roland DG is showcasing the new VersaObject CO Series flatbeds for object customisation, plus a number of other perennially popular products including the VersaUV LEF2 series benchtop UV printers and the VersaStudio BN-20 series printer cutters.
