"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 Kevin Shigenoya, Roland DG Product Marketing executive officer. "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."
Colour Management System (CMS)
CMS is a system used to achieve a closer colour match between devices that have different colour gamut, such as offset and inkjet printers. By adopting the CMS into the print workflow, highly accurate and precision digital colour proofing is achievable. Connecting the Roland VersaUV series with the CMS will make it possible to establish a more flexible and accurate colour-proofing system.
Roland VersaUV Series LEC-330 and LEC-300
The 30" wide VersaUV series prints on an unprecedented range of substrates and features Roland's renowned Print&Cut technology, which enables precision printing and contour cutting of graphics 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.
