Roland at Esko Software Seminar

Friday, August 31, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Roland DG (UK) is proud to announce its presence at Esko's annual UK Software Seminar on 6th September at Loughborough University.

Roland specialists will be on hand to demonstrate to guests the Roland VersaCAMM VS-420 and VersaUV LEC-330 wide format inkjet print and cut devices. The printer/cutters will be put through their paces on the day, producing on-demand and cost-effective packaging proofs, prototypes and labels.

Esko will use the event to build on the success the company enjoyed at Drupa and help companies in the sign and display sectors to maximise the business creation possibilities offered by Esko's solutions portfolio.

The programme for the day includes reviews of all the enhancements addressing sign and display artwork, management, design and prepress, colour management, workflow automation, project management and process integration. Throughout the day, visitors will also be given the opportunity to get up close and personal with Roland’s market-leading print and cut devices.

UV-curable inks make Roland’s VersaUV LEC-series the ideal solution for cost effective on-demand production of packaging prototypes, even on the same stock as the final output. The highly flexible integrated print and cut machine, with its maximum width of 54 inches, and white and clear ink, can print onto plastics, vinyls, metals, foils, films and even leather - as well as layering clear gloss to produce textured effects, and gloss or matte finishes.

The 42 inch wide VersaCAMM VS-420 is one in a series of four models in the award winning VS range. It's use of metallic inks make for simulating foiling effects and white ink capability means vibrant colours on clear substrates. Its compatibility with a huge range of media and integrated cut capability for precision cutting and perforating make this a winning solution in the labelling market.

Esko solutions on the day will include Suite 12, a major update release for the packaging, label, sign and display industries, which focuses on adding value for the user by introducing new productivity and efficiency, as well as facilitating mobile collaboration and web-based management workflows. It features WebCenter 12, Automation Engine 12, Color Engine 12, Studio 12 and the flagship editors, ArtiosCAD, PackEdge, ArtPro and DeskPack, also show a full roadmap for all products.

Esko's commitment to sharper more accurate digital imaging will be showcased via HD Flexo, while 3D Visualizer will highlight the time and cost savings possible via highly creative mock ups that can even be viewed on-shelf for a retail realistic experience.

In addition, there will be a host of creative solutions that are designed to enable time and cost savings throughout the production process, using everything from automatic file checking, through to online approvals and project management.

Also partnering Esko at the event will be X-Rite, who will be showcasing its PantoneLIVE, which was launched in March, Esko's wide-format distributor Digital Print Innovations (DPI) and The Quick Brown Fox, who will be demonstrating how to integrate its Aramis MIS system into an automated workflow in order to generate extra power.
