Roland announces TrueVis SG wide format

Roland has announced a new series of TrueVis SG wide format printers. Essentially these are budget versions of the original TrueVis printers that were launched earlier this Spring at the Fespa Amsterdam show.

There are two models: the 30ins, or 762mm, 300 priced at £6,999; and the 54ins, or 1371mm, 540, priced at £9,499. These are eco-solvent inkjet printer/cutters that use Roland’s greyscale FlexFire printheads with a four colour TrueVis inkset.

However, they only have two printheads, rather than four, so there’s no option for the full seven or eight colour inkset offered with the VG series. The speed has also suffered with the SG300 managing just 6 sqm/hr and the SG 540 7.9sqm/hr in the standard mode with 900 x 600 dpi and ten passes. Roland hasn’t quoted speeds for the VG series, other than that the 64ins VG640 can produce 8.3sqm/hr at the same setting with seven colours, or 14.2 sqm/hr with four colours and six passes.

Otherwise, the features remain the same as the VG series, using the same 500ml ink pouches with their easy loading system. The price also includes the VersaWorks Dual RIP.
