Elite Wrappers took a leap with their Roland DG TrueVIS AP-640 and have never looked back
Starting out as a one-man operation subcontracting as a vehicle wrapper, Chris Dunning, owner of Elite Wrappers has since grown his business to a 3-person operation in Penrith that continues to build its clientele as well as its reputation supplying signage and vehicle wraps to the transport industry. With their key business and individual clients pushing urgent deadlines and requesting the highest quality output, Elite Wrappers turned to the Roland DG TrueVIS AP-640 resin printer to meet their needs.
Having used competitor products in the past, Elite Wrappers was convinced the AP-640 had overcome most of the drawbacks of similar machines in the market, and were quick to snap up the first unit sold in Australia. As Chris notes, it’s natural to be concerned about having to “iron out any bugs with a brand new machine, especially one that’s new to the market”, but this hasn’t been his experience with Chris saying “it’s clear how much Roland DG has invested in the R&D of the TrueVIS machines.”
Rather than being a ‘leap of faith’, Elite Wrappers previous experience with Roland DG products over the years helped in the decision making process, and the AP-640 has delivered on the high standard they’re used to getting from Roland DG machines and service. According to Chris, "The Roland TrueVIS AP-640 has literally helped take our business to the next level.”

The other factor that clinched Elite Wrappers’ decision to buy their AP-640 was the advice they received from Ecolease through Roland Rental. Nathan Greentree, Operations Manager at Elite Wrappers says "we cannot fault the Ecolease team in their knowledge and recommendations on what was the best way for us to acquire this new piece of equipment. The whole process from quote to finance approval to installation took a mere 11 days and with one simple monthly payment over the term of their choice, Elite Wrappers’ estimates their monthly repayments can be covered in just a few days of operating.

Nathan is delighted with the dependability of his new machine saying “Roland DG machines are so reliable, and the service is exceptional when we do run into an issue” making it a logical decision to upgrade with another Roland DG device.
According to Nathan, although their original Roland DG VS-640i continues to be dependable, it is slightly outdated and was holding them back. The technology in the AP-640 suited their business model better, where tight turnarounds to meet transport industry demands dominates workflow.
Nathan also says the AP-640 is “great value for money” and he "cannot fault the machine in the time we’ve had it. It’s probably been the most trustworthy machine I’ve had.”
