Roland DG Introduces First-in-Class Orange and Red UV Inks for LEC2 Series Printer Cutters
Hamamatsu, Japan, July 1st, 2021 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide- format inkjet printers and printer cutters, today announced the addition of EUV5 Orange and Red UV-curable inks for use in the VersaUV LEC2 series of UV-LED printer cutters.
With integrated printing and cutting, diverse media support and ease of use, the LEC2 series UV printer cutters are ideal for the quick turnaround of numerous applications, including adhesive decals, labels and stickers, signs, POP, backlit panels, interior décor and packaging prototypes. In addition to CMYK, Clear, White and Primer, EUV5 UV ink now supports new Orange and Red inks as process colours. CMYK + Orange + Red expands the colour gamut by approximately 20%, thereby increasing the number of Pantone colours reproduced by approximately 200 colours*² compared to four-colour CMYK. Combined with Roland DG’s True Rich Color print settings that maximise the potential of hardware and inks to produce stunningly vibrant graphics with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones, it is now possible to more accurately reproduce brand colours that were previously difficult, if not impossible.
