Tuebingen, Germany/Hamamatsu, Japan – GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, and Roland DG Corporation, a leading worldwide provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters, have announced that the GMG printer driver for the UV-LED inkjet printer&cutter VersaUV LEC-330, which allows the fast creation of perfect mockups, is now available.
Working together, the Roland VersaUV LEC-330 and GMG color management offer players in the packaging and labeling market – including printers, design agencies, advertising agencies, repro houses, and brand owners – ground-breaking solutions for prototyping, mockup and small lot production of packaging and labeling.
The VersaUV LEC-330 supports a wide variety of substrates including paper, paper compounds, transparent films, aluminum foils, PE and PET foils, plastic, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates which are used for offset, flexography, roto-gravure and screen print production. High-opacity ECO-UV White ink is ideal for transparent media, allowing users to print brilliant colors on dark and transparent substrates. With the ECO-UV Clear ink, users can simulate gloss and matte finishes, embossed effects, and spot varnishing.
GMG color management, providing unrivaled quality and repeatability, enables the VersaUV LEC-330 to achieve a visual match, locally and at remote locations, with the main print processes such as flexography, offset and gravure printing – even for spot colors. It ensures the highest repeatability by calibrating target printers within tight tolerances. Furthermore, the simulation of cardboard, paper structure and register variations is supported to achieve color-accurate mockups with the VersaUV LEC-330.
Compared with traditional systems for mockup creation in the packaging and label market, the Roland/GMG solution produces highly color-accurate mockups at a fraction of current costs.
