The Roland Colour System accurately reproduces spot colours from Roland Color charts and swatch books and features 512 metallic colors including gold, silver, bronze and a wide range of pearlescent colors. VersaWorks also offers a variety of print options including the Max Impact preset for vivid outdoor graphics and Artistic mode for exceptional indoor graphics to be viewed up close. VersaWorks automatically estimates the ink usage and print time for each graphic so you can accurately monitor your time and costs.
The Advantage of Integrated Print/Cut
VersaCAMM VSi Series inkjets streamline the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics as soon as they finish printing. By eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics, VSi integrated cutters save valuable time and effort, creating a tremendous competitive advantage.
Roland’s Quadralign system automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion when removing prints to laminate then reload for cutting.
