Geel, Belgium, 07 March 2019 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, is proud to announce that Avery Dennison has awarded their advanced ICS Performance Guarantee to graphics printed with the new TR2 ink and the new TrueVIS VG2 series 1625 mm and 1371 mm (64” and 54”) wide-format printer/cutters.
According to Kohei Tanabe, President of the Roland DG Digital Printing Business Division, the ICS Performance Guarantee provides warranty protection for up to 4 years for outdoor printed graphics, and up to 7years for indoor graphics. “Just as exciting for users of the TrueVIS VG2 series and Avery Media combination,” Tanabe says, “is that after widespread testing, Avery has set the recommended outgassing time at just six hours. This dramatically reduces the print and laminate timeframe recommended for traditional solvent technology by 75%, allowing users to easily implement same-day print and laminate workflows in their businesses, and retain a full graphics warranty.”
“We at Avery Dennison work closely with printing experts like the engineering teams at Roland DG to create production solutions that offer superior performance and peace of mind to our customers,” says Paul Roba, Avery Dennison OEM Relationship Manager. “With the TrueVIS VG2 series and the TR2 ink, we are happy to add another high-quality print platform to our extensive Integrated Component System Warranty Program. We continue to provide thoroughly tested solutions to our PSPs, increasing confidence in graphic performance and identifying throughput improvement processes.”
The TrueVIS VG2 series adopts a new generation of TR2 ink. In order to take full advantage of the VG2’s superior colour reproduction capability and the wide colour gamut provided by the TR2 ink, a True Rich Color preset was also created, allowing vibrant colors to be combined with neutral greys, smooth gradations and natural skin tones for producing stunning graphics.
“Extensive product development was completed for the new TrueVIS VG2 Series printer/cutters in combination with the new and advanced TR2 ink,” Tanabe says. “The Avery ICS Performance Guarantee, in conjunction with the six-hour outgassing capability, provides confidence in the new technology we have implemented to help our customers excel in the real world, where professional graphics producers demand durable high-quality output with brilliant colour and fast turnaround.”
Paul Willems, Head of Business Development and Product Management, Roland DG EMEA adds: “The backing of new TrueVIS VG2 and the TR2 ink by leading media manufacturers' warranties reflects the fact that TrueVIS TR2 Ink Technology is the leading technology for sign professionals – delivering the widest colour gamut with excellent light fastness, plus easy handling and fast lamination when needed, and only when needed. All this, combined with the most competitive running costs and impressive application versatility, makes it a true ‘no compromise’ solution.
