31-Jan-2017 Roland DG Offers New VersaWorks Dual RIP Free for Owners

Sydney, Australia, January 31, 2017 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters worldwide, today announced that its Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP and print management software is now available free of charge for customers of several previous printer models.

Roland VersaWorks Dual builds upon the intuitive, easy-to-use capabilities of Roland VersaWorks to provide high-quality printing while adding enhanced processing and editing functions. Roland VersaWorks Dual enables users to work not only with PostScript® files, but also allows for native processing of PDF files to ensure transparency effects are processed accurately. In addition, white or clear ink data can be generated easily in the RIP, ideal for use in producing transparent window graphics, stickers and personalised accessories with special effects. The position and size of special colour data can also be adjusted in the RIP for perfect registration. Features like rotation and mirroring of the data can be configured in the RIP as well, without the need to return to graphic design software. For LEF users, the newly available Maintained Clipped Position function is included which enables you to print designated images only. This feature is useful when extra processes such as clear effects are required for printing specific items.

“A major benefit for Roland customers,” said Greg Stone, Roland DG Australia Product & Marketing Manager, “is that our software is tailored exclusively for Roland DG printers and printer cutters, and optimised to maximise their performance and ease of use. Our colour management tools and other functions have become important factors in the popularity of Roland products worldwide.”

“Now that Roland VersaWorks Dual supports native PDF processing,” Stone continued, “we believe our printers provide an even greater level of value for not only the printing of signs and graphics, but for decorating a wide range of original goods and for prototyping applications such as package printing and press proofs. We are committed to developing powerful, world-class RIP software that makes customers’ work even easier, while expanding their creative potential.”

The software is now available for the following models:
  • SOLJET PRO 4 XR-640 
  • VersaCAMM VS-640i/540i/300i, SP-540i/300i
  • VersaSTUDIO BN-20
  • VersaEXPRESS RF-640
  • VersaUV LEJ-640, LEJ-640FT, LEC-540/330, LEF-20/12

17-Jan-2017 Roland DG Strengthens VersaUV Line Up with New LEF-200 Benchtop UV Printer

Sydney, Australia, January 17, 2017 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers worldwide, today announced the addition of the VersaUV LEF-200 to its lineup of benchtop UV printers. Delivering advanced media compatibility and workflow efficiency, the LEF-200 also features a new on-board Primer ink option.

According to Greg Stone, Product and Marketing Manager of Roland DG Australia, the LEF-200 was developed to offer outstanding print quality, greater media compatibility, and ease of use for the personalisation and custom printing markets, which are characterised by small-lot production of numerous products. At 20 inches wide, the LEF-200 prints high-quality full-colour, White, Clear and Primer inks on a wide variety of materials including three-dimensional items up to 100mm thick. To accommodate an expanded range of profitable applications, the LEF-200 features a new on-board Primer ink option for priming objects quickly and conveniently. The new Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software simplifies the process of producing graphics with special effects.



“With the LEF-200,” Stone said, “you can print rich colour directly onto a wide range of personalised consumer products and promotional items such as smartphone cases, pens, awards, giftware, plates and more.” The new Primer ink option allows users to prep an object for customisation before printing a full-colour graphic. “This makes adding graphics to glass, plastics and other challenging media* so much more clean and efficient,” he said. The Primer ink is also compatible with the LEF-300.

The LEF-200 incorporates Roland DG’s proprietary CYMK, White and Clear ECO-UV inks for premium quality printing. Clear ink can be printed for spot gloss or matte finishes, as well as unique embossing effects. White ink can be printed as a spot colour or as a flood behind CMYK on dark backgrounds or clear materials. To meet individual business requirements, users can choose from three ink configurations: CMYK+White+Primer, CMYK+White+Clear, and CMYK+White+White.

“We also added usability enhancements to the LEF-200 for greater efficiency.” Stone added. Roland VersaWorks Dual enables users to work not only with PostScript® files, but also allows for native processing of PDF files to ensure transparency effects are processed accurately. In addition, white or clear ink data can be generated easily in the RIP, ideal for use in producing transparent personalised accessories with special effects.

According to Stone, “With the growing desire for personalisation that reflects individual preferences and lifestyles, the market for on-demand printing onto various articles is expected to expand still further in the future. In recent years, we have seen an increasing number of businesses using our VersaUV LEF printers to provide custom printing of smartphone cases and accessories. With the LEF-200’s greater versatility for applications and usability, we continue to provide the best solutions to support custom print services providers both online and offline.”

*It is strongly recommended to test the substrate for compatibility to ensure optimal print results as print quality or ink adhesion may vary depending on the substrate used.
