Using a solution that combines printer and cutter in one footprint offers productivity advantages. The new Roland TrueVIS VG2 mid-level production printer is available in 54” and 64” configurations with four to eight colors.
One buyer is Gielen Reclame BV, located in the Netherlands.
“We especially like the orange ink,” says Chris Gielen, owner of the company. “We were already using white ink on our Roland Soljet Pro XR-640, which gives us a lot of nice effects with foil. Now, with the orange ink, we can print corporate colors much more accurately. In four-color offset printing, those orange colors often came out brownish, or you had to use a PMS color ink, and the same is true with four-color inkjet printing. Now, with the Roland TR2-OR orange ink, we are getting excellent results.”
New TR2 inks featuring improved stretchability, washability for garment decoration, outstanding outdoor performance, and a brand-new Orange ink for an expanded color gamut with support for the Roland Orange Library and the Pantone color library.
TR2 inks certified to meet the requirements of 3M’s MCS warranty and Avery Dennison’s ICS warranty. 3M MCS and Avery Dennison ICS Warranty coverage currently apply to CMYKLkLcLm, White and Orange to follow. Users of 8c configuration can select 7c for full conformity. The inks are also GREENGUARD Gold certified for low chemical emissions and feature exceptionally low ink consumption costs, including reduced ink consumption during maintenance. The use of media-specific profiles also reduces ink consumption.
