Roland introduces new wide-format digital printer/cutter at FESPA 2019

Live demonstration and workshops for visitors


Roland DG is exhibiting its new Roland TrueVIS VG2 printer/cutter in a series of workshops to showcase the features of its wide-format digital print and cut device at its Stand H10, Hall A5 at FESPA 2019. The Roland TrueVIS VG2 won the ISA Innovation award and appears to be attracting high customer demand.

The TrueVIS VG2-640 and VG2-540 models offer greater color quality, efficiency, versatility and cutting accuracy, all at an affordable price. Ricoh will also host the TrueVIS VG2 workshops hosted by Nadia Plomp, product specialist at Roland DG Benelux. “Our theme at FESPA is ‘What matters to you inspires what we do’, reflecting our continuous attention to industry feedback, which enabled us to perfect what we believe to be the most accurate, high-performance printer/cutter available on the market today – the TrueVIS VG2,” says Plomp. “There are more than 40 enhancements on the TrueVIS VG series, including excellent print-and-cut quality and bright colors,” Plomp adds.

The TrueVIS VG2 workshops will be held every day of the show on the Roland DG stand, taking place at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the TrueVIS VG2 Discovery Zone. The 20-minute workshops will allow the visitors to experience a live demonstration, see samples of the wide range of compatible media, understand the breadth of profitable applications from indoor and outdoor advertising, vehicle graphics, banners, posters and displays, labels and decals, packaging prototypes, apparel heat transfers and more.

The VG2 print and cut workshops, titled ‘Be the Best – 7 compelling reasons to choose TrueVIS VG2,’ will explain how key features and benefits can help transform any print business, large or small. The TrueVIS VG2 enables same-day application; prints are ready for lamination and finishing in just six hours, enabling PSPs to meet their customers’ expectations – and stay ahead of the competition. The visitors will also get to understand the benefits of the new Orange ink, which prints vibrant color and also makes realistic color reproduction quick and simple to achieve, including matching Pantone and corporate brand colors.

At the workshops, delegates will also discover how quickly they can make a return on their investment thanks to the 40 new clever refinements that add up to make a big, business-enhancing difference. Roland, as the market leader in eco-solvent printer/cutters with itstechnology, is helping its users improve their bottom line.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
