Roland DGA Corporation has announced the launch of its new TrueVIS™ VF2-640 – a 64-inch eco-solvent wide-format printer designed to provide unparalleled color gamut expansion and unsurpassed print quality.
The VF2-640 offers users a whole new level of color control and vibrancy, making it easy to produce color-accurate signs, vehicle graphics, labels, decals, and heat transfer apparel that exceed customer expectations.
The first “print-only” model to be offered within Roland DG’s TrueVIS series, the VF2-640 inherits a host of features from the award-winning TrueVIS VG2 series of printer/cutters. That next-generation technology, combined with the added ability to produce previously unattainable colors, enables the VF2 to deliver truly amazing results. Along with the VF2 comes a new TR2 Green ink which, when combined with vibrant TR2 Orange ink in process colors, allows for a significantly wider gamut. This specially formulated TR2 Green ink is also now available for use with the TrueVIS VG2 series. Like VG2-printed graphics, output produced by the VF2 with standard TR2 inks has earned both the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty and the Avery Dennison™ ICS Performance Guarantee, providing customers with assurance of the quality and durability of their graphics.
The VF2-640 features a new True Rich Color 2 Preset, which maximizes the potential of this printer and its wide-gamut, GREENGUARD Gold certified inks. The True Rich Color 2 Preset enables users to combine vibrant colors with neutral grays, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones to produce vivid, photorealistic output. The expansion of Green colors in True Rich Color 2 provides additional process colors, while a Green Roland DG Color System Library with 142 newly available spot colors allows for enhanced color matching and reproduction.
The VF2 incorporates four state-of-the-art FlexFire™ print heads for unmatched color vibrancy and outstanding detail, even in high-speed modes. It also boasts a new, even more stable TU4 media take-up with two modes for optimum versatility, a newly designed pinch roller system for simple media loading and improved tracking accuracy, and smart new media clamps that increase ease of use and streamline workflow. For greater convenience, the VF2 is equipped with Roland DG Mobile 2 – an innovative feature that lets you test-print, clean and troubleshoot from your tablet or smartphone.
The VF2 can be seamlessly paired with Roland DG’s GR-640 large-format cutter, or a Roland DG Pro series cutter, for the high-productivity, precision cutting of decals, labels, heat transfers, and other print and cut applications. Print/cut data can be automatically processed by the included VersaWorks® 6 RIP software, for maximum production efficiency.
“With the addition of new TR2 Green ink and TR2 Orange ink, the VF2-640 is perfect for print service providers who want to increase their wide-gamut printing capabilities and expand their product offerings,” said Daniel Valade, Roland DGA Product Manager of Digital Print. “The VF2 is also an unbeatable machine for those who prefer a ‘print-then-cut’ workflow. It offers incredible color and quality across a variety of media substrates, plus the productivity and legendary Roland DG reliability needed in the most demanding print environments.”
The VF2-640 comes with a Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty and Roland DGA’s world-class customer service and support.
