  • Go West – Roland DG takes the show to Perth

    Roland DG is heading west, with the announcement it will host a special Road Show event in Perth, Western Australia, after successful Road Show events last year throughout Australia.

    Roland DG will be showcasing its new wide format technology during the Perth Road Show, including the recently released PRO4 XF-640 wide format printer, new PRO4 XR-640 printer/cutter and a range of other innovative solutions.

    “While Perth may not be considered ‘regional’, being on the other side of the country it is somewhat isolated in terms of major trade shows,” says John Wall (pictured), Roland DG Australia sales director. “So as with all our other Road Shows, we aim to make the latest technology and training much more accessible to all regions of Australia and this is why we have chosen Perth as our next stop.”

    Visitors from Perth and surrounding areas will have a unique opportunity to meet V8 Supercar driver Maro Engel from Erebus Motorsport (1st May from 4.30 – 6PM), and also the chance win two tickets to the Perth 360 V8 round on 3rd – 5th May, including VIP Pit tours of the Erebus Team.

    Roland DG will demonstrate the new PRO4 XF-640 plus a range of other leading Roland technology including the popular PRO4 XR-640 printer/cutter.

    The 64-inch (1625mm) SOLJET PRO4 XF-640 is Roland’s fastest wide-format printer to date and is loaded with state-of-the-art technology. The PRO4 XF-640 incorporates next generation dual print heads and redesigned take-up and pinch roller systems, plus a host of other advanced features for high quality imaging at a maximum print speed of 102m2/hr, and production speeds of 20-63m2/hr.

    “We are excited to showcase this new technology to the market,” says Wall. “This is a unique opportunity for people to be some of the first to see the new XF-640 in action. Along with the new XR-640, I’m sure they will be impressed at the speed and quality that can be delivered and will immediately see the advantages they can achieve for their business.”

    Roland sales and technical staff will also be on hand to answer any questions about Roland products and solutions, give advice on any technical issues or suggest helpful tips on day to day workflows to help customers get more out of their Roland device as part of the RolandClinic

    The Perth Road show event will be held on 30th April – 1st May at Hotel Northbridge from 11am – 7:30pm each day, with a special Roland VersaWorks® Advanced Training course to be held on 2nd May.

  • Roland DG hits the road for regional printers

    Roland DG will add extra times and locations to its regional road show campaign following an overwhelming response to this year’s launch of its Creative Centre & Clinic Road Show, set to kick off in August.

    The wide format company will embark on a series of road shows around Australia to demonstrate its latest wide format printing, cutting and engraving technology, with the company to hit the road in August with regional printers in mind.

    Roland DG’s Creative Centre and Clinic road show will run from 13 August to 6 September and take in locations around New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, including Port Macquarie, Tamworth and Mount Gambia. The company is also set to announce further dates and locations following an eager response from customers.

    “We are pleased with the excitement and response to our regional Road Show campaign, hence why we put this program together,” says John Wall, sales director at Roland DG Australia. “With dozens of registrations and many more enquiries following the news release last week, we were forced to bring plans to visit more areas forward to increase the coverage for our regional customers.”

    The series of shows will feature the company’s new VersaSTUDIO BN-20 desktop printer/cutter, and a recently released double white ink configuration for VS Series printer/cutters. There will also be a range of creative application samples and solutions on display.
