Roland DG Expands Award Winning TrueVIS Printer Cutter Lineup with Affordable SG2 Series

Hamamatsu, Japan, October 9, 2019 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters worldwide, today announced the addition of the new SG2 64”, 54”, and 30” wide format eco-solvent printer cutters to its second generation TrueVIS series.

TrueVIS is the award-winning series of wide format printer cutters that was developed by Roland DG to achieve the highest ever print quality available for durable graphics print businesses. The SG2 series printer cutters feature a CMYK ink configuration to achieve an affordable price and low running costs, while offering outstanding colour and versatility. Available in three different size models, the SG2 series can meet a variety of graphics business requirements. 

To take full advantage of its superior colour reproduction capability and the wide colour gamut provided by new TR2 ink, the SG2 series includes the newly developed True Rich Colour preset. Now vibrant colour can be combined with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to create stunning graphics. According to Kohei Tanabe, President, Digital Printing Business Division, this pioneering print quality is unequalled for durable graphics. 

Among the SG2’s myriad of technical improvements is a newly developed automatic pinch roller system requiring minimal operator intervention, a Multiple Print function to conduct highly accurate automated printing and cutting without the need to use crop marks, and a precision Perforated Cut function for providing high quality die-cut, ready-made labels/decals without the need for trimming. A new take-up unit supporting two modes according to the type of media chosen and increased take-up stability for smooth post processing, adds up to exceptional performance and value. 

The new SG2 series is equipped with Roland DG’s FlexFire print heads and a new waveform technique to control the precise firing of new TR2 ink droplets. Simultaneous variable droplet control of three different sized droplets results in premium quality printing performance. In addition, the SG2/TR2 solution includes several new features to minimise running costs for increased profitability, including a brand new ink delivery system that reduces ink consumption by up to 54% due to automated maintenance sequences*. 

“By providing outstanding colour and versatility in three different sizes at an affordable price, the new SG2 series will appeal to a large number of digital print business owners, including those entering the sign and display graphics market and those looking to diversify their print business,” Roland DG Australia’s Product and Marketing Manager, Greg Stone, said. “Roland DG is committed to providing products that maximise profitability through efficient production, so that graphic providers and sign makers can unleash their creative potential, and turn their imagination into reality.”
