Roland DG wins triple awards at the 2019 Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA)

The firm’s TrueVIS VG2 series printer/cutters, TR2 ink, and the Texart RT-640M multifunction dye-sublimation printer were all crowned winners.

TrueVIS VG2 printer/cutters stole top place within the Roll-toRoll/Solvent/Latex (under 80 inches) category, while the company’s TR2 ink and Texart RT-640M printer took the limelight in the “Digital Inks – Eco-Solvent/Solvent/Latex” and “Roll-to-Roll Disperse Ink on Textile” categories.

Chief executive officer of Roland DGA, Roland DG’s US-based sales and marketing subsidiary says: “Considering that there were more than 200 entrants this year in 72 different categories, having not just one but three Roland DG products win top honours is quite an accomplishment.”

The new Roland Texart RT-640M is a multi-function dye sublimation printer that allows users to print directly onto polyester fabrics or to sublimation transfer paper.  The versatility of the printer allows designs to be applied to apparel, décor, rigid signage, and hard goods.

Roland DG is committed to providing products to help graphic providers and sign makers unleash their creative possibilities, transform their imagination into reality, and enjoy a sense of accomplishment

TrueVIS VG2-540 and VG2-640 with TR2 ink have FlexFire print heads that jet inks which go beyond the standard cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Users can also expand their creativity by printing in light cyan, light magenta, light black, white or orange.

Kohei Tanabe, Roland DG president of the digital printing business division says, "We are very pleased to receive these prestigious awards. Roland DG is committed to providing products to help graphic providers and sign makers unleash their creative possibilities, transform their imagination into reality, and enjoy a sense of accomplishment when people react to their output graphics with ‘WOW’.”
