New Roland DGA TrueVis Printers Receive Industry Certifications
Roland DGA’s New TrueVIS™ TR2 Eco-Solvent Ink Technology Receives Avery Dennison ICS Performance Guarantee and Six-Hour Outgassing Approval for Printed Graphics
Roland DGA Corporation, a leading provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, has announced that Avery Dennison has awarded their advanced ICS Performance Guarantee for graphics printed with new TR2 eco-solvent ink and the new TrueVIS VG2 series 64” and 54” wide-format eco-solvent printer/cutters.
The ICS Performance Guarantee provides up to four years of warranty protection for outdoor printed graphics and up to seven years for indoor graphics. “This is an important assurance for those who will be using our next-generation VG2 printers with Avery media,” noted Daniel Valade, Roland DGA Product Manager, Color Products and Cutters. “What’s more, after rigorous testing, Avery has set the recommended outgassing time for this combination at just six hours – a 75 percent reduction in the timeframe recommended for traditional solvent technology. That means businesses with tight project turnaround times, like vehicle wrap shops, can easily perform same-day printing and lamination while retaining a full graphics warranty.”
According to Avery Dennison OEM Relationship Manager Paul Roba, the testing process required close collaboration between Avery and Roland DG. “We work closely with printing experts like the engineering teams at Roland DG to create production solutions that offer superior performance and peace of mind to our customers,” said Roba. “We are happy to add another high-quality print platform with the TrueVIS VG2 series and TR2 ink to our extensive Integrated Component System Warranty Program. We continue to provide thoroughly tested solutions to our PSPs, increasing confidence in graphic performance and identifying throughput improvement processes.”
In addition to incorporating a host of features for increased efficiency, productivity and ease of use, Roland’s TrueVIS VG2 series adopts a new generation of eco-solvent TR2 ink. In order to take full advantage of the VG2’s superior color reproduction capability and the wide color gamut provided by TR2 ink, a True Rich Color preset was also created, allowing vibrant colors to be combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones for stunning graphic results.
“Our VG2 series printer/cutters, together with our specially formulated TR2 ink, give demanding graphics professionals what they need to succeed in today’s competitive marketplace – durable, high-quality output, brilliant color, and fast turnaround times,” said Valade. “The Avery ICS Performance Guarantee, along with the six-hour outgassing capability, gives customers even more reasons to invest in this cutting-edge technology.”
