Roland DGA Corporation has announced the launch of its new TrueVIS VF2-640, a 64-inch eco-solvent wide-format printer designed to provide unparalleled colour gamut expansion and print quality. The VF2-640 offers advanced colour control and vibrancy, making it easy to produce colour-accurate signs, vehicle graphics, labels, decals and heat transfer apparel.

Roland DG’s first “print-only” model within its TrueVIS series, the VF2-640 includes a number of features from the TrueVIS VG2 series of printer/cutters, and can also produce previously unattainable colours. With VF2 comes a new TR2 green ink which, when combined with TR2 orange ink in process colours, allows for a significantly wider colour gamut. This specially formulated TR2 green ink is now available for use with the TrueVIS VG2 series.

The VF2-640 features a new True Rich Color 2 Preset, which allows users to combine vibrant colours with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones to produce vivid, photorealistic output. The expansion of green colours in True Rich Color 2 provides additional process colours, while a Green Roland DG Color System Library with 142 newly available spot colours allows for enhanced colour matching and reproduction.

The VF2 incorporates four FlexFire print heads, which provide colour vibrancy and detail, even in high-speed modes. It also includes a new, even more stable TU4 media take-up with two modes for versatility, a newly-designed pinch roller system for simple media loading and improved tracking accuracy, and smart new media clamps that increase ease of use and streamline workflow. The VF2 is also equipped with Roland DG Mobile 2, a feature that allows test printing, cleaning and troubleshooting from a tablet or smartphone.

The VF2 can be paired with Roland DG’s GR-640 large-format cutter, or a Roland DG Pro series cutter, for the cutting of decals, labels, heat transfers and other print-and-cut applications. Print/cut data can be automatically processed by the included VersaWorks 6 RIP software, for maximum production efficiency.

The VF2-640 comes with a two-year warranty and Roland’s customer service and support.
