Features

  • A Sound Investment

    With an impressive price/performance ratio, the SG minimises the time it takes to pay back your investment. Quick and easy to setup and intuitive to operate, this profit-making machine delivers an impressive return on investment from day one. Integrating easily into your existing workflow and premises, with no need to invest in additional space and no specialist electrical connections or adaptations necessary.

  • Stunning Images and Outstanding Results

    Everything about the way TrueVIS printers produce images has been perfected. With the SG series, two completely new FlexFire printheads fire precision droplets in 3 sizes, covering a wide print area. This enables every drop of ink to fall exactly where it is intended, delivering beautiful images and uniform colours at production speeds.

  • Ink that Lowers Costs and Raises Quality

    TrueVIS INK for SG is available in CMYK colours and comes in 500 cc pouches that slide into a hidden ink bay. The ink bay features reusable cartridges that support clean use with less waste. TrueVIS INK is the next evolution for eco-solvent ink technology, meeting user demands for a lower cost, competitively priced ink with a wider colour gamut and stricter environmental standards. It is also GREENGUARD Gold certified for indoor air quality.

  • Simple Contour Cutting

    With the TrueVIS SG, the innovation continues in Roland DG's most advanced integrated print/cut technology to date. Featuring a new cut carriage and blade holder, with increased downforce and accuracy, you can work with more media and discover more profit opportunities.

  • Remote Controlled Production

    In addition to a built-in control panel, the Roland DG Mobile Panel enables you to manage the functions of the SG printer/cutter with a smartphone or tablet using a Bluetooth connection. This smart and convenient new feature allows you to receive status updates as well as remotely manage production, test printing, and cleaning functions while working in remote range of your machine.

  • All new VersaWorks™ Dual RIP Included

    The SG Series includes VersaWorks Dual RIP software, which features a new core engine for faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF and EPS files, including files with drop-shadows and transparencies.
