Roland VersaUV LEC-540 and VersaCAMM VS printer/cutter series now supported by GMG color management for packaging mockup creation

(PresseBox) (Tuebingen, ) GMG, a leading developer and supplier of high-end color management software solutions, has announced that the company's GMG ColorProof proofing software now fully supports the new Roland VersaUV LEC-540 printers for digital mockup creation and the VersaCAMM printers VS-300, VS-420, VS-540 and VS-640 with integrated contour cutting capability. Besides mockup creation, these printers allow for digital label production on various substrates suitable for solvent ink systems.

The Roland VersaCAMM VS series 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 batch production of labeling. Equipped with white and metallic silver ink, the VersaCAMM VS series allows for exceptional image effects and quality. With the capability to print CMYK, Light Cyan, Light Magenta, White and Metallic ink at resolutions up to 1440 dpi, the VersaCAMM VS series allows for unmatched versatility and remarkably rich special effects, offering a whole new metallic color palette. By combining the metallic eco-solvent ink with CMYK, over 500 metallic shades can be created.

The UV printer/cutter Roland VersaUV LEC-540 prints CMYK, white and clear coat on a wide variety of substrates including vinyl, PE, PET, BOPP, self-adhesive PVS, paper, leather and textile. The LEC-540 also features a table for printing on rigid substrates up to 1mm. The new LED curing system enables immediate drying of the ECO-UV inks. The lamps reposition themselves automatically depending on the print modus. This speeds up production compared to the other VersaUV models.

With integrated cutting technology, these printers offer a one-step operation (Print & Cut) which is supported by the GMG Print & Cut Option in GMG ColorProof. This way, mockups already cut into shape can be created, eliminating laborious manual work such as reloading and accurately repositioning the output in a separate cutter.

GMG color management, providing unrivaled quality and repeatability, enables the VersaUV LEC-540 and the VersaCAMM VS series to achieve a visual match, locally and at remote locations, with print processes such as flexography, offset and gravure printing - even for spot colors. Compared with traditional systems for mockup creation in the packaging and label market, these Roland/GMG solutions deliver highly color-accurate mockups at a fraction of current costs.
