20-Apr-2016 Visual Impact Brisbane a Success for Roland DG
Sydney, Australia, April 20, 2016 – Roland DG Australia, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and 3D devices, was proud to be the Platinum Sponsor at a successful Visual Impact Expo in Brisbane. Roland DG showcased its recently released printers and engraving solutions, as well as a range of inspirational applications and workflows.
Front and centre at the stand were the brand new TrueVIS VG Series printer/cutters that attracted many visitors keen to see the new technology and print quality of Roland’s latest printer/cutter in person. Not only were they impressed with the striking output and vibrant colours created by the new FlexFire print heads and TrueVIS ink, but also the other advanced features of the VG series including the Bluetooth-enabled technology.
The dye sublimation area featured the recently released Texart XT-640, and showcased the full dye sublimation workflow from print to finished product. A range of items such as mugs, drink bottles and tiles were produced on the stand, and a range of other unique samples were on display including sportswear, fashion items and even a snowboard.
The personalisation area was a big hit with stand attendees, and included UV printing, engraving and heat transfer applications. There was much excitement around UV printing on the LEF-300 that was printing double sided keyrings. An onscreen tally kept count throughout the show, and as it came to an end, a total of 1302 keyrings had been printed, along with hundreds of posters printed on the SOLJET EJ-640 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
