TrueVIS VG series

New TrueVIS TR2 ink for Vibrant Color

In addition to seven colors and White, the new TR2 ink supports Orange ink to further increase color gamut. Orange in general adds high visibility and impact to printed graphics and offers a warm and welcoming glow with positive emotions to communication tools or corporate identities. To maximize the effect of this new color ink, a new Multi-Process Color Function has been developed to enable using Orange ink as a process color. Since Orange ink can now be processed as a part of process color with CMYK channels, it enables you to express even richer colors without any special spot-color setting requirements.

True Rich Color

Enhance your Business with "True Rich Color"

In order to take full advantage of the VG2/SG2 series’ superior color reproduction capability and the wider color gamut provided by new TR2 ink, we developed a True Rich Color preset. Now vibrant color can be combined with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to create stunning graphics. This pioneering print quality is unequalled for durable graphics.

TrueVIS VG2/SG2 outshines competitors in Independent Tests

"Under each test condition, the eight color Roland TrueVIS VG2-540 with orange ink produced a larger color gamut than most eco-solvent/latex ink devices tested to date by BLI." "with the VG2-540 reproducing many hard-to-match colors in our corporate color accuracy test extremely well."

Quick and Easy Spot Color Matching

Standard colors such as Pantone or DIC can be quickly matched with accurate results using the Roland Color System Library. With approximately 130 new spot color references for Orange to Red areas available in it, specific targets such as Orange colors which had been regarded as difficult to match can now be easily achieved.

Take-up system

Automated Long-run Decals/Labels Production

When multiple copies of stickers, decals, and labels are produced, the shorter the job length is, the higher print & cut accuracy becomes. Using the Multiple Print function allows the printer to automatically conduct highly accurate printing and cutting for a group of labels several times without the need of using crop marks. The combination of a new precision media take-up system with highly accurate print & cut functionality enables the production of longer-run unattended jobs.

  • Lengthy Print & Cut Jobs with Crop Marks

    Print all copies and cut them afterwards.

    Lengthy Print & Cut with Crop Mark

    Lengthy jobs require crop mark registration. It takes longer to read crop marks.

  • New "Multiple Print" Function

    Continuous Print and Cut per Shorter Distances.

    New

    Better tracking accuracy with shorter print & cut jobs results in SHORTER PRODUCTION TIME!!

Robust Mechanical Structure for Highly Reliable Print & Cut Production

The VG2/SG2 series achieves a high degree of mechanical precision for printing and cutting accuracy. The newly developed automatic pinch roller system provides an automated workflow requiring minimal operator intervention. The pressure of the side pinch rollers has been optimized to obtain further accuracy in media feeding movement for both printing and cutting jobs.

Advanced Print&Cut Features for High Quality Decal Production

2 modesFor precise accuracy when cutting laminated graphics, new multiple-cropmark functions are equipped. In addition, a Cut and Print mode is available, which helps to produce high-edge quality graphics especially for thin flexible materials such as heat transfer media for apparel decoration.

Perforated Cut Sticker

Eliminate Trimming with Perforated Cut

The improved cutting control technology of the VG2/SG2 series introduces a precision Perforated Cut function for producing die-cut, ready-made labels/decals without the need of a post-trimming process. Since the perforated cut can also be applied to contour cutting, it can produce unique, custom-shaped stickers ready to be shipped. This eliminates the post trimming process and supports short turn-around jobs.
