Roland DG simplifies colour consistency with new colour matching tool

Roland DG has released the innovative VW-S1 densitometer, a new tool designed to make colour matching on one Roland printer and between Roland printers easier and more affordable. 


The VW-S1 is an easy-to-use USB device that works with the Printer Color Matching function of Roland’s powerful VersaWorks 6.8 RIP. This ensures consistency of colour output from one printer over time or between compatible printers, for instance two or more same-model Roland devices with the same ink type, configuration and print settings. 


Using the VW-S1, users can produce volume work from one client with multiple printers, or print a large combined graphic with two printers, or produce the same quality output from one printer over a long period of time all with consistent colour. This can save time, reduce waste and improve print quality across repeat orders.


The device is compatible with TrueVIS, VersaCAMM, VersaSTUDIO and VersaUV printers and printer/cutters from Roland DG. These systems are relied upon around the world by businesses in sectors including sign and display, print personalisation, labels and packaging, and textiles and apparel to create stunning work in vibrant colours.  


Paul Willems, director of business development and product management, Roland DG EMEA, said: “The VW-S1 has been developed in response to our customers’ needs. Our users tell us that other devices are expensive and difficult to use, so the new Roland VW-S1 is priced accessibly, is low maintenance and is easy to operate with the intuitive VersaWorks 6 RIP.


“This is a great addition for existing Roland customers and for people considering investing in Roland. Our technology is constantly in development to reflect the market’s changing needs.” 


VersaWorks 6.8 is the latest RIP and print management software from Roland, updated with four new features. These include a ten-fold increase of the Variable Data Print limit, Simulation Profile Management, Multi Job Grouping and a new Pantone library. Existing VersaWorks users can upgrade to the latest version for free simply by visiting the VersaWorks software page.
