Roland DGA has announced the launch of its new “TrueVIS™ Value-Up Program,” offering current owners of Roland TrueVIS VG series wide-format printer/cutters the opportunity to upgrade the print durability
guarantees, capabilities and cutting power of their existing inkjets. This upgrade enables TrueVIS VG-640 and VG-540 owners to make their printer/cutters compatible with the latest TR2 inks*, print/cut functionalities, and other improvements of Roland’s recently launched TrueVIS VG2 series.
The TrueVIS Value-Up Program gives VG owners access to several VG2 advantages, including TR2 ink compatibility with certified print results on 3M and Avery Dennison media, a wider color gamut with ultra-vivid True Rich Color enhancement, new cutting and automated maintenance capabilities, advanced productivity and efficiency features, and much more.
“Our new Value-Up Program offers a quick and easy way for current VG owners to ‘super-charge’ their existing printer/cutters with next-generation TrueVIS VG2 color and performance,” noted Daniel Valade, Roland DGA Product Manager of Digital Print. “This represents our commitment to providing Roland users with the tools and technologies they need to build their businesses and better serve their customers.”
The VG series with new TR2 ink is certified for long-lasting results by the 3M MCS Warranty, providing users with assurance of the quality and durability of their graphics. The VG series with TR2 ink has also earned Avery Dennison’s ICS Performance Guarantee certification, which provides outdoor durability protection for up to four years and indoor durability protection for up to seven years. Avery Dennison has set the recommended outgassing time at just six hours, dramatically reducing the print and laminate timeframe.
With the upgrade, VG owners also obtain a host of new features that improve print and cut accuracy and usability. Crop mark options are added for even greater precision when cutting laminated printed materials. A newly added PerfCut mode allows for printing, cutting and die-cutting in one seamless operation. In addition to the Print & Cut function, VG owners can take advantage of the Cut & Print function, which lets you cut first and then print later. This helps reduce edge curls when dealing with thin media, such as heat transfer films for apparel decoration. VG-640/540 users can upgrade their devices by downloading the specified firmware and the latest version of VersaWorks® 6 RIP software.
