As the exclusive printer manufacturer for RCR, Roland has equipped the legendary racing organization with its most powerful devices for vehicle graphics, including the CAMM-1 Pro Series GX-640 vinyl cutter, SOLJET PRO III XJ Series inkjet printer and a VersaCAMM VS wide-format printer featuring Roland’s award-winning Metallic Silver Eco-SOL MAX ink.Selected to wrap all RCR race cars and trucks, Roland inkjet printers and printer/cutters work around the clock to deliver the team’s championship look. "Having Roland inkjet printers on site allows our graphics team to keep up with the demands of the sport,” said Nick Woodward, graphics manager for the RCR Graphics Center. "Our vehicle wraps change several times throughout the season. In fact, sponsorships can change from race to race. Having the speed to turn graphics around quickly is a key to our success."
