Roland DG Launches CAMM-1 GR2-640/540 Vinyl Cutters with Seamless Print-then-Cut Workflow to Expand your Business
Roland DG has announced the addition of the new GR2-640/540 64” and 54” vinyl cutters to its CAMM-1 series.
The CAMM-1 series is capable of cutting almost any shape quickly and cleanly from a broad range of sheet and film materials, ranging 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.
According to Paul Willems, Product Management and Business Development Director at Roland DG EMEA: “When paired with Roland’s premium-quality print technology, Roland cutters are the perfect choice for print professionals for creating rich and vibrant graphics of all shapes and sizes for multiple applications including stickers, labels, in-store POP and – more recently – social distancing signage.”
The newly announced GR2-640/540 provide an ideal balance between affordable pricing and superior cutting performance and are designed to integrate seamlessly with large-format inkjet printers. 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.
One of the most exciting features of the GR2 series, according to Willems, is that it pairs smoothly with Roland DG’s large-format inkjet printers using the identical VersaWorks 6 RIP software for seamless print-then-cut production.
VersaWorks 6 ‘Job Assistant’ function enables you to edit vector data in PDF and easily add contour lines 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 also features a multi-crop mark function for more accurate contour cutting of large quantities of printed material and cutting after lamination. It also includes the Roland DG AAS II plug-in software for pairing with other large-format inkjet printers.
The GR2 series comes equipped with the powerful, best-in-class FlexiSign GR2-Edition software which is free for the first year upon registration. This software offers a complete suite to design and cut graphic files and seamlessly integrates with GR2 series cutters for a cut only or print-then-cut workflow.
“What’s more,” Willems adds, “the GR2 series excels in its quality, productivity and cost-efficiency. These defining features of Roland’s products help users get ahead of the fierce competition in the professional print community by allowing them to branch into new creative offerings and deliver even more cutting-edge solutions to their customers.”
