Roland DG Launches CAMM-1 GR2-640/540 Vinyl Cutters with Seamless Print-then-Cut Workflow to Expand your Business

CAMM-1 GR2-640

Hamamatsu, Japan, July 20th, 2021 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, today announced the addition of the new GR2-640/540 64” and 54” vinyl cutters to its CAMM-1 series.

The CAMM-1 series is capable of cutting almost any shape quickly and cleanly from a broad range of sheet and film materials ranging from thin automotive window films and heat-transfer sheets to thick reflective sheets and sandblast masks. Applications include signs, automotive window film, vehicle wraps, sports apparel and more. According to Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, “Our vinyl cutters are often used in combination with our large-format inkjet printers for printing and then cutting colorful graphics into unique shapes for stickers, labels and various store decorations and, more recently, for making social distancing signs to prevent the spread of the Covid-19.”

The newly announced GR2-640/540 provide an ideal balance between affordable pricing and superior cutting performance and are designed to integrate seamlessly with large-format inkjet printers. With a maximum cutting speed of 1,530 mm/s, a maximum downforce of 600 gf and smooth media feeding, the GR2 series achieves the precision cutting quality and high-volume productivity required by professional users.

Among the key features of the GR2 series, according to Shigenoya, is that it pairs smoothly with Roland DG’s large-format inkjet printers using the identical VersaWorks 6 RIP software for seamless Print-then-Cut production. Contour lines can be added and crop marks generated automatically to imported printing data in VersaWorks 6, to ensure the outlines of graphics are cut accurately, eliminating the need for users to switch back to Adobe® Illustrator®, CorelDRAW® or other graphics software to complete production. The GR2 series features a multi-crop mark function for more accurate contour cutting of large quantities of printed material and cutting after lamination. It also includes the Roland DG AAS II plug-in software for pairing with other large-format inkjet printers.

Shigenoya said, “The combination of our printers for producing beautiful graphics with our cutting machines that can contour cut any shape makes possible the production of unique and attractive applications. The GR2 series answers all these needs while exceling in quality, productivity and cost.”

“There is fierce competition among sign making shops,” he added. “Roland DG is committed to contributing to the development of digital solutions and services aimed at helping our customers explore the bounds of their creativity.”
