Roland DG Corporation announced the worldwide launch of six new models in the best-selling TrueVIS series of large-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters: the AP-640 resin printer, the LG-640/540/300 high productivity UV printer/cutters, and the MG-640/300 multi-functionality UV printer/cutters at entry-level price. Together with the four ECO-SOL models previously launched in March 2022, the TrueVIS lineup expands to a total of 10 inkjet devices.
“Since the first model was released in 2016, the TrueVIS series has won worldwide acclaim from graphics production professionals for its ability to produce durable graphics with the extraordinary power to excite hearts and minds,” said Tony Miller, president of Roland DG’s Global Sales and Marketing Division.
“Meanwhile, consumer needs are changing dramatically against a backdrop of fast-paced technological innovation, changes in social structure, and the growing awareness of environmental issues. The roles required of sign and graphics professionals are also diversifying. As a result, printed graphics are increasingly required not only to transmit information, but to offer functionality and expressiveness that create positive impressions and experiences in a wider range of situations, from outdoor and indoor commercial venues to public facilities such as museums, hospitals, and schools, and even in private homes.
“In response to these trends, we felt it was important to increase the number of options available to our customers so they can choose the best solution for their particular application requirements. We expanded the TrueVIS lineup to include three ink types – UV, resin and ECO-SOL -- each with different capabilities. Best of all, no matter which printing technology they choose, our customers can count on the same industry-leading TrueVIS quality of printing and reliability.”
The newly developed resin model offers natural expressiveness that takes advantage of the media texture and is ideal for applications that require a high level of peace of mind thanks to the use of enhanced environmental and people-friendly inks, said a press release. The UV models enable high-definition output and special printing, including three-dimensional expressions for the faithful reproduction of artwork and for communicating by touch, including Braille. And the ECO-SOL models create graphics with vivid colours that generate stunning impressions that cannot be forgotten once seen.
“It is our mission to provide people around the world with the joy of creation and the excitement that comes from it,” Miller said. “With the addition of resin and UV inkjet models, the TrueVIS series of 10 printers opens up the future with vast possibilities of incredible signs and graphics for our customers.”
