Green Ink Adds Unprecedented Colour Capabilities to TrueVIS VG2 Series Printer Cutters

Hamamatsu, Japan, June 17, 2020 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters, today announced the addition of newly developed Green TR2 ink for its TrueVIS VG2 Series 64” and 54” wide format inkjet printer cutters.

Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, Roland DG, said the VG2 Series has been updated with new features that strengthen its “Power to Excite.” When combined with vibrant Orange ink as process colours and the “Multi-Process Color function,” new Green ink provides greatly increased gamut expansion and richer visual expression. Plus, with the True Rich Color preset, you can combine neutral greys, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones to produce breathtaking graphics with stunning realism. “Users can now reproduce corporate colours that have traditionally been considered difficult to reproduce - if not impossible - and create lifelike sign graphics that serve as highly effective communication tools and leave a lasting impression.”

GREENGUARD Gold certified TR2 ink is virtually odourless and requires no special ventilation or environmental equipment. It’s also durable, scratch resistant and offers low running-cost production without sacrificing colour or image quality. Convenient 500 ml pouches fit neatly into reusable ink trays, sliding into a hidden bay for clean operation and less waste. In addition, the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty and Avery Dennison™ ICS™ Warranty Program offer certified coverage for graphics printed onto their materials with TR2 ink and TrueVIS VG2 printer cutters.*

Released in March of 2019, the TrueVIS VG2-640 and VG2-540 represent Roland DG’s flagship models of wide format inkjet printer cutters for producing advertising, sign and other durable graphics. The printers were engineered by applying new technologies and attention to detail down to the finest level across every aspect, including print quality, ease-of-use and reliability. “With the addition of Green ink,” Shigenoya said, “our printers are further enhanced by their capability to deliver beautiful printed graphics with unmatched quality as recognised not only by customers, but also by key industry organisations, as well as the world's leading independent provider of testing and analysis for the document imaging industry. We are committed to developing products that meet the creative quest of our customers by pursuing Roland DG standards of excellence.”

The TrueVIS series won seven awards in 2019, including the “Innovation Award” at the 2019 ISA International Sign Expo® in Las Vegas, “Best Print & Cut Solution” in the EDP (European Digital Press Association) Awards, SGIA “Product of the Year” Awards in the "Roll-to-Roll/Solvent/Latex (under 80 inches)" and "Digital Inks – Eco-Solvent/Solvent/Latex" categories, Keypoint Intelligence's Buyers Laboratory “Buyers Lab 2020 Pick Awards” in the “Outstanding Gamut Expansion Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer category,” “Outstanding Enhanced CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer category,” and “Outstanding Entry-Level CMYK Eco-Solvent/Latex 54"/64" Printer category.”
