Labels & Packaging
EFI and Roland DG Corporation have announced that Roland DG's newest and most popular inkjet printers are now supported by EFI colour management/production software including Print Pack 2 for EFI Colorproof XF and Fiery XF 4.1 RIP. The move broadens the appeal for litho printers who are used to EFI RIP’s and software solutions to comfortably enter the wide format market. With EFI's RIP, Roland printers can now be seamlessly integrated into EFI's MIS software, web-to-print and web control centre workflow solutions for remote printing and proofing.
Roland printers now supported include: VersaUV UV-LED printer/cutters; all SOLJET PRO III XJ and XC printers; VersaCAMM VP-i and SP-i series; and the VersaArt RS 4-colour printers.
Roland wide-format inkjets are designed for applications ranging from signs, banners and vehicle wraps to labels, packaging prototypes, digital contract proofs for offset, roto-gravure and flexography printers, continuous-tone and halftone proofing, membrane panels and even custom interior décor items. This integration with EFI software solutions now enhances their productivity and offers added benefits for users of white and clear inks included with VersaUV LEC and SOLJET PRO III XC models.
Using the 1-bit TIFF option, VersaUV and EFI Colorproof XF now provides users with an end to end solution for contone and halftone package prototyping, achieving highly accurate colour matching across, says EFI, virtually any type of packaging material. By layering clear ink, Roland’s VersaUV produces premium results including gloss and matte finishes, embossed effects and spot varnishing.
EFI XF v4.1 also supports Roland's "back to origin" feature, which boosts productivity for CMYK, white and clear/gloss printing by minimising the need for user interaction. XF v4.1 also supports Multi-Layered Printing for the VersaUV, allowing users to print CMYK, white and clear/gloss inks, and contour cut designs automatically without any user interaction.
EFI says that key features in EFI XF v4.1 include superior colour processing and matching; workflow automation, versatility and ease of use; flexible ink handling for clear and white ink; adjustable ink coverage between 10 and 500 percent for clear and white ink; easy routing and inverting; clear ink surface control, print order control and more.
