20-Sep-2016 Roland DG Inspires at Visual Impact Sydney

Sydney, Australia, September 20, 2016 – Roland DG Australia, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and 3D devices, was proud to be the Platinum Sponsor of a successful Visual Impact Expo in Sydney. The Roland DG stand showcased brand new technology, solutions and programs, along with a diverse range of profitable applications, providing visitors with ideas and inspiration to incorporate into their business.


The new TrueVIS printer/cutters, including the recently released SG Series, made for a great entrance to the show, generating a lot of interest from attendees. Many were impressed with the image quality and colour vibrancy being produced on the SG-540, as well as the attractive price point; whilst those seeking increased productivity or additional colour options were drawn to the VG-640. The advanced features of the entire TrueVIS range, including new FlexFire print heads combined with new TrueVIS ink, plus the Bluetooth-enabled Roland DG Mobile panel, were a real talking point.

The stand also hosted the high performance SOLJET EJ-640 printer that printed collateral for the Black Dog Institute as part of Roland DG’s “Print for Purpose” campaign. The Texart RT-640 dye sublimation printer and the LEF Series benchtop UV printers, along with Roland DG’s renowned engraving solutions all showcased a range of interesting applications that highlight the versatility and potential profitability of these technologies.

Roland Rental Platinum, with its dedicated lounge area manned by the helpful team from Ecolease, had a number of enquiries about this new, premium package, which delivers simplicity and savings by offering a complete Roland solution including hardware, ink, service, and training all wrapped up in one monthly payment.

01-Sep-2016 Roland DG Launches TrueVIS SG-540 and SG-300 Printer/Cutters

Sydney, Australia, September 1, 2016 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, today announced the launch of the SG-540/SG-300 54” (1371mm) and 30” (760mm) entry-level wide format eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutters, the latest additions to its TrueVIS brand.

The new TrueVIS SG Series is designed to deliver the rich colours and glossy finish required for high-impact printed graphics at a very affordable price point. Launched in March 2016, the TrueVIS brand is Roland DG’s newest generation of inkjet printer/cutters, combining its proven technology and expertise developed over many years in the sign and graphics industries. As part of the TrueVIS family, the SG Series offers extreme colour quality, versatility and ease-of-use with significant enhancements: new Roland DG FlexFire print heads, new 4 colour TrueVIS INK, and advanced integrated print and cut technology. The SG Series is available in both 54” and 30” models for producing indoor and outdoor advertising, vehicle graphics, banners, posters and displays, as well as labels, decals and apparel heat transfers.

“There is intense competition in today’s sign market due to the proliferation of wide format inkjet printers,” said Gino Farina, Roland DG Australia Sales & Marketing Director. “Sign shops and print service providers are looking for an advantage over their competitors by providing high quality printing while keeping operating costs down. Small shops in particular will appreciate the outstanding overall value and low cost of ownership of our SG Series.”

Two Roland DG FlexFire print heads fire precision droplets in three sizes and a wide print swath, for high-quality output and efficient ink usage. Every drop of ink falls exactly where it is intended, delivering beautiful images and uniform colours. The combination of TrueVIS INK, engineered specifically for the FlexFire print head, and Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software results in stunning fine details and vibrant colours at production speeds. The SG Series’ added productivity – up to 60% faster than previous comparable models in standard mode – enables increased profitability. 

TrueVIS INK is the next evolution for eco-solvent ink technology, meeting user demands for competitively priced ink with low consumption and a wider colour gamut while also meeting strict environmental standards. TrueVIS INK comes in cost-effective 500ml pouches that fit neatly into reusable cartridges that slide into a hidden ink bay for clean, safe use with less waste. 

Roland DG introduced print and cut technology in 1996. The SG Series represents Roland DG’s most advanced integrated print/cut technology to date. A new cut carriage and blade holder with increased downforce and accuracy facilitates using a wider variety of media for additional sales opportunities. 

The SG Series is incredibly user-friendly for all operators, from novices to seasoned professionals. New Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software is included and features a new core engine that quickly and accurately processes both native PDFs as well as legacy PostScript files, including files with transparencies. In addition to a built-in control panel, a new Roland DG Mobile Panel enables users to manage the printer functions remotely using a smartphone or tablet with a Bluetooth connection.

“In addition to continuing to serve users in developed countries, we plan to support start-ups and print service providers in emerging countries by combining the new SG Series with our extensive, best-in-class customer support, including Roland DG Care, Roland DG Creative Centers and Roland DG Academy,” said Farina.
