In the last few years, digital wide format printing industry companies have created new technologies for printing and reproduction of materials, such as Roland with the TrueVIS SG Printer / Cutter.
The TrueVIS SG Series consists of two models: SG-540 and SG-300, some of the general features are:
Printhead Technology: piezo electric inkjet.
Dimensions: Roland SG-300 (762 mm) and Roland SG-540 (1371 mm).

Maximum Speed (7 pass): 101.2 ft2/hr.
Standard Speed (10 pass): 85 ft2/hr.
Cutting speed: (0.4 to 11.8 in/s).
This series of printers has innovated in terms of technology from the ink to the form of printing, since through the smartphones and Bluetooth can access the control panel.
Applications of the TrueVIS SG technology:

One of the features of this series of printers is the new RIP VersaWorks, its interface is very intuitive and allows you to perform many functions from the main screen. Adobe CPSI RIP engine allows greater compatibility with different formats of design files and a total integration with the most common files.
One of the important functions of the RIP is the integration it has with other Roland equipment since it allows you to connect up to 4 devices simultaneously.
The PANTONE® Built-in Library automatically converts specific PANTONE flat colors in your design file to a CMYK value. This simplified workflow reduces the amount of time required for color matching and enables fast printing of specific colors.
So much has been the success of this series of printers that for two consecutive years (2016 and 2017) it has won the ‘Best Print & Cut Solution’ award at the prestigious EDP (European Digital Press) awards.
Gillian Montanaro the head of marketing of Roland, comments at de ceremony in FESPA 2017 in Hamburg, Germany:
‘Roland DG is very proud to have won this award. It’s an exciting time for the industry with manufacturers striving to innovate and bring the very best solutions to market. This EDP recognition demonstrates that as a pioneer of wide format printing technology, Roland DG continues to lead the way with an unmatched product portfolio offering an award-winning combination of reliability, precision engineering, quality and return-on-investment.’
