Roland DG announces TrueVIS VG2 with increased colour gamut



Roland DG has announced the launch of its second generation TrueVIS VG2 series 54” (VG2-540) and 64” (VG2-640) wide-format eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutters.

The TrueVIS VG2 series adopts a new generation of eco-solvent TR2 ink. In addition to the previous seven colours and white, new TR2 ink supports orange ink to increase colour gamut, enabling reproduction of specific brand colours and providing 130 new spot colours. In order to take full advantage of the VG2’s superior colour reproduction capability and the wide colour gamut provided by the new TR2 ink, a True Rich Colour preset was developed. Now vibrant colour can be combined with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to create stunning graphics.

The VG2 offers a host of technological advancements to improve both printing and cutting accuracy for reliable results during unattended operation. New middle pinch rollers rise automatically prior to starting the cutting process for unattended operation. New crop mark options for cutting laminated printed materials, in combination with optimised side pinch roller pressure, provide more stable cutting performance. A new media take-up unit supports two modes for improved take-up accuracy and tracking over long distances.

The VG2 builds upon the BLI award-winning quality and productivity of the previous generation VG. Roland DG FlexFire printheads produce the precision ink firing that enables printing neutral grays, vivid colours, and smooth skin tones even at the highest speeds.

TrueVIS VG2 and TR2 ink is certified for long-lasting results by the 3MTM MCSTM, providing assurance of the quality and reliability of their graphics. The VG2 with TR2 ink also supports Avery’s ICS performance guarantee and is certified GREENGUARD Gold for safe indoor graphic applications.

The new VersaWorks 6 RIP is designed to simplify operation while maximising the power of the VG2 and other Roland DG devices. A Harlequin RIP dual-core engine, support for PDF 2.0 and native 64-bit processing provides accurate rendering of PDFs with shadows and transparencies.
