Roland DG Australia will be exhibiting at IPEX 2010, held at NEC, Birmingham UK from May 18 through 25, 2010. Significant developments to be revealed at IPEX - the global event for print, publishing and media are several new strategic technology partnerships between Roland DG and digital proofing and Colour Management System companies. These partnerships combined with the Roland VersaUV LEC-330 UV-LED printer/cutters and new Metallic ink solutions with the VS-640 and XC-540MT, will bring leading edge technologies to the graphics industry.
"Integrating a Colour Management System from our strategic partners with the Roland VersaUV series gives our customers more flexibility and a greater capacity to produce labels and packaging prototypes", said Conrad Birkett, Roland DG Business Development Manager. "Using a VersaUV and the CMS will save time and be more cost effective, while maintaining uncompromising quality." "We look forward to the opportunities created in the printing industry from these partnerships."
CMS is a system used to achieve a closer colour match between devices that have different colour gamut. Examples of this include offset and inkjet printers. Using CMS into the print workflow results in accurate and precise digital colour proofing. Connecting the Roland VersaUV series with the CMS will make it possible to establish a more flexible and accurate colour-proofing system.
Another important product to be shown at the expo is the Roland VersaUV Series LEC-330. Precision printing and contour cutting and perforated cutting of graphics are offered with t he 30" wide VersaUV series prints on an unprecedented range of substrates, featuring Roland's renowned Print&Cut technology. This happens all on one device through one seamless workflow. In addition to CMYK and white inks, VersaUV prints a clear coat which can be layered to create gloss and matte finishes, unique textures and special effects. Roland ECO-UV inks exclusively
developed for the VersaUV series, offer an expansive colour gamut and remain flexible to support the production of packaging samples and short-run high-quality labels and stickers.
