It will be a voyage of discovery for visitors to the Roland DG booth (Hall 9, Booth E04-1) as they explore the exciting new digital print opportunities offered by the world's number one seller of wide format printers for the durable graphics market*.

Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing, Roland DG EMEA, said, "While Roland DG is a global brand we appreciate that there are many print service providers and commercial printers who are yet to discover the benefits our technology can bring to their businesses. At DRUPA we are really looking forward to introducing our devices, inks and software and explaining how cost-effectively and easily commercial print business owners can use a Roland DG device to expand the range of products and services they offer to their existing customers and to target profitable new markets."

In the spotlight will be the latest addition to Roland DG's portfolio of market-leading eco-solvent integrated printer/cutters; the TrueVIS VG Series. Available in 64" and 54" widths, the VG Series is the culmination of Roland DG's many years of expertise and market leadership in the field of integrated print & cut technology, combined with a host of new enhancements. These include four newly developed Roland DG FlexFire print heads to deliver precise, high quality print at production speeds and new GREENGUARD Gold certified TrueVIS INK which works in synergy with the print heads to optimize output. New powerful and advanced cutting technology delivers increased downforce, accuracy and compatibility with a wide range of media. To enhance the user experience, LED lighting illuminates the print and maintenance areas and the wireless Roland DG Mobile Panel enables full remote printer management from the user's existing iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. The new included VersaWorks Dual RIP software is incredibly user-friendly and offers a range of new features to optimize the efficiency and quality of production.

With the TrueVIS VG, print businesses can offer customers a host of durable, quality products for outdoor and indoor use, including signs, banners, graphics for walls, windows and vehicles, stickers and decals, customized clothing and much more.

With dual staggered print heads, an integrated tri-heater system and strong chassis, the EJ-640 is built for optimum performance for businesses working on high-volume output.

The Roland DG team will also be running live demonstrations on the new VersaUV LEF-300 LED UV inkjet printer; the largest and most productive of its popular VersaUV series of direct object printers. The LEF-300 takes the digital customization of merchandise and promotional print products to a whole new level of productivity, transforming an incredible range of ordinary objects into high-profit personalized items: from mobile phone covers and USB sticks to pens, golf balls and much more.

For print businesses considering diversifying into textile applications such as soft signage, sportswear, apparel, interior decoration or promotional merchandise, Roland DG's Texart XT-640 dye-sublimation transfer printer is the ideal solution.
