“Since we began selling wide-format inkjet printers in 1997, we have led the sign and graphics market - known for our outstanding print quality and reliability, as well as for the support we provide to our dealers and customers,” said Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President of DP Business Division

“In countries with remarkable economic growth, demand for graphics is increasing, and there is a need for high productivity with good cost performance. In addition, many customers are just now entering the business. In response to the voices of customers in those countries and regions, we developed DGXPRESS as a limited area* brand that focuses on high productivity at an easy-to-install price while maintaining the excellent print quality and reliability that are among the greatest features of Roland DG products.”

The UG series comprises two wide-format inkjet printers that use UV ink, which is growing in popularity in the sign and graphics and digital printing markets. The UG-642* is ideal for customers who need to produce large-sized output quickly. The UG-641* is also priced comfortably for those who want to expand the scope of their business or for those who wish to start a new print business.

Both models offer excellent ink drying capabilities and an automated Print&Cut function, alongside support for a wide range of media for outdoor and indoor applications. The optional Clear and White ink provides the ability to perform special printing with unique 3D effects and realistic textures, making the UG series a powerful tool for creating high-value-added packaging prototypes and artwork.

The UG series also includes VersaWorks 6 professional RIP software and is compatible with Roland DG Connect, a cloud-based service that allows for more proactive support in the event of errors while also offering visualization of printer operation and various functions at a glance.

"The DGXPRESS brand name articulates our desire to inspire the creativity of more customers around the world by offering the greatest value for our inkjet printers, the highest expressive power (EXPRESSION), together with high-volume productivity (EXPRESS),” Shigenoya added. “Red, the brand's theme colour, signifies "the beginning of things," "passion," and "prosperity." It also represents our commitment to support our customers in their new success stories through DGXPRESS. We will continue to expand our product line-up and grow the brand to exceed our customers' expectations.”
