Roland DG announces plans for SDUK 2016

Roland DG will launch and demonstrate the new TrueVIS VG-640/540 print and cut machine at SDUK 2016

Roland DG has announced it will be hosting a wide range of informative presentations at this year’s premier print and signage show, Sign & Digital UK 2016.

This will include daily live product demonstrations of the newly launched Roland DG TrueVIS VG print and cut series and an informative Business Theatre Seminar to advise wide format eco-solvent printer owners how to maintain their machine for optimal life-span and production results.

TrueVIS VG Series live product demonstrations

Roland DG’s latest printer and cut range, the TrueVIS VG series, will be introduced to visitors for the first time ever in the UK through insightful product demonstrations led by Rob Goleniowski, Sales Support Manager, Roland DG UK. The live product demonstrations will take place daily on the Roland DG stand (H30) at 12pm.

The TrueVIS VG series is the most efficient and productive series yet, with a number of advanced features to make it the ideal solution for businesses working to meet high production levels across a range of industries.

The printer/cutter machine, which is available in two sizes (64-inch and 54-inch), boasts numerous new features such as four new advanced FlexFire printheads with 3 variable drop sizes, new 500cc pouches of TrueVIS INK available in 3 ink configurations which provide a wide colour gamut and fast drying times, a new cutting head with increased downforce and accuracy, new mobile technology in the Roland DG Mobile Panel Software to control your printer from an existing phone or tablet, and new inbuilt LED lighting to illuminate the print carriage and maintenance areas for easy maintenance.

Delegates attending the demonstrations, which take place at 12pm daily, will be led through each new feature and relating benefit of the VG Series first-hand by Goleniowski, who says: “There are so many new features to the TrueVIS VG Series which together work in harmony to ensure that the machines produce high quality graphics while maximising efficiency and productivity levels during every print run.”

Business Theatre Seminar – “Looking after your wide format eco-solvent machine”

As the UK market’s leading manufacturer of wide format eco-solvent digital printers for durable graphics, Roland DG’s is well placed to take to the stage at the Sign & Digital Business Theatre to help inform visitors on best practice machine maintenance.

The "Looking after your wide format eco-solvent machine" seminar, presented by Mike Kryvoblocki, RolandCare Supervisor and Technical Trainer at Roland DG UK, will take place from 14.00-14.30hrs on the 19th and 21st April, and 13.15-13.45hrs on 20th April. The session teaches attendees the importance of user maintenance for wide format eco-solvent machines, focussing in on individual cleaning procedures for print heads, manual cleaning methods for cap tops and wipers, along with advice on frequency and other maintenance tips and tricks which will keep their wide format machines running at optimal performance and prolong their machine lifecycle.

Kryvoblocki will also cover feed calibration; an important issue which is often overlooked by print professionals, but can lead to inconsistent output if set improperly. Mike will ensure visitors to the session are aware of the different types of set-ups required for each media input and have a better understanding of what an ‘ideal’ feed calibration test print should look like.

Kryvoblocki comments “In addition to the everyday best practice maintenance processes that can be so easy to overlook, I will be delving into operator level inspections and replacements for wipers, cutting strips and blades. Attendees will also be taught how to set up contour blades, and bi directional adjustment. What I want to give is a holistic view into how regular maintenance can reduce downtime and improve production quality which is so important in our industry.”
