Roland DG Corp has added to its CAMM-1 series of vinyl cutters with the new GR2-640 and GR2-540 64” and 54” devices. Applications include signs, automotive window film and vehicle wraps.
The CAMM-1 series is capable of cutting almost any shape from a range of sheet and film materials, from thin automotive window films and heat-transfer sheets to thick reflective sheets and sandblast masks.
Applications include signs, automotive window film, vehicle wraps, sports apparel and more.
“Our vinyl cutters are often used in combination with our large format inkjet printers for printing and then cutting colourful graphics into unique shapes for stickers, labels and various store decorations and, more recently, for making social distancing signs to assist with preventing the spread of COVID-19,” said Kevin Shigenoya, vice president, Digital Printing Business Division, in a statement from Hamamatsu, Japan.
“The newly announced GR2-640 and GR2-540 are an ideal balance between affordable pricing and superior cutting performance, and are designed to integrate seamlessly with large format inkjet printers,” said Roland DG. “With a maximum cutting speed of 1,530 mm/s, a maximum downforce of 600 gf and smooth media feeding, the GR2 Series achieves the precision cutting quality and high-volume productivity required by professional users.”
The new cutters pair smoothly with Roland DG’s large format inkjet printers and use the same VersaWorks 6 RIP software for seamless Print-then-Cut production. Contour lines can be added and crop marks generated automatically to imported printing data in VersaWorks 6, to ensure the outlines of graphics are cut accurately, eliminating the need for users to switch back to Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW or other graphics software to complete production. The GR2 Series features a multi-crop mark function for more accurate contour cutting of large print and cut jobs after lamination. It also includes the Roland DG AAS II plug-in software for pairing with other large format inkjet printers.
Shigenoya said the GR2 Series combines quality and accuracy making it possible to produce unique and attractive applications efficiently and cost effectively.
“There is fierce competition among sign making shops,” he added. “Roland DG is committed to contributing to the development of digital solutions and services aimed at helping our customers explore the bounds of their creativity.”
