Value-Up Program

Upgrade the Ink, Capabilities, and Cutting Power of Your VG or SG

The multi-award-winning TrueVIS brand continues to evolve and improve— offering you with next level color reproduction, image quality, cutting efficiency, and media versatility. The value-up program provides an essential upgrade to the firmware on your TrueVIS VG series printer/cutter or SG series printer/cutter. This will make it compatible with the latest TR2 inks, print/cut functionalities, True Rich Color enhancements and other new generation improvements.

Start Making the Switch Today!

First generation TrueVIS owners should be aware that Roland is discontinuing TR INK by February 1, 2021.* This means that you will need to upgrade sooner rather than later to make the necessary switch to superior TR2 inks and improved machine performance.

In addition to quality improvements, VG and SG customers should also note that TR2 ink cost is the same cost per ml as TR (TrueVIS INK) while running cost is lower due to optimized cleaning cycles when using new TR2.

*Final date of discontinuation is subject to change based on the rate of conversion.

Start here by entering your product's serial number
The serial number can be found on the product information plate on the back or side of your Roland device.

Only registered VG or SG owners can value-up their machines to feature new generation TrueVIS enhancements. If you haven’t registered your machine, you will be instructed to do so after entering your serial number.

Turn Up the Value on Your VG or SG

When you value-up your VG or SG, you’re not only changing your firmware to accept certified TR2 ink, but also upgrading many of the major functions and features of your machine.

TR2 Ink Compatibility for 3M and Avery Warranty Coverage

Upgrading to TR2 Ink certifies your print results on 3M and Avery Dennison media with TrueVIS series printer/cutters.

The 3M™ MCS™ Warranty covers printing onto qualifying 3M media with standard TR2 inks using a TrueVIS VG printer/cutter.*

*The 3M MCS warranty currently applies only to TrueVIS VG series printer/cutters

The Avery Dennison™ ICS™ Performance Guarantee Program program guarantees same-day print, lamination and wrapping with Avery Dennison media and standard TR2 inks using a TrueVIS VG or SG printer/cutter.

 

 

A Wider Color Gamut with True Rich Color

With True Rich Color enhancement, your color output combines neutral grays with smooth gradations and detailed skin tones to offer results that are ultra-vivid as well as exceptionally realistic.

 

Cutting Improvements with Multi-Crop Function

Your firmware upgrade includes improvements to the way your machine cuts. Custom crop in a few easy clicks and improve accuracy on stickers, labels, and other long run print/cut applications using the Crop Mark by Row function in VersaWorks 6.

 

More Efficient Cleaning Features

With the firmware update, automated cleaning cycles enable up to 54% less ink waste. In addition, an updated cleaning sequence automatically programs overnight cleaning.

 

Nozzle Mask Function

The firmware update includes a nozzle mask function to minimize downtime if a nozzle on the printhead is clogged and misfiring— allowing you to turn off a specific nozzle band to allow continued production.

Important Notes on this Upgrade:

  • Output results with TR2 ink will be different from those of TR ink (TrueVIS INK).
  • TR and TR2 ink cannot be used together. In addition, your device ink combination (SG: CMYK) or (VG: CMYKCMYK, CMYKLcLmLk, CMYKLcLmLkWh) cannot be changed. Only the ink combination you are currently using is supported.
  • The printing speed of SG and VG series devices combined with new TR2 ink has changed in some modes.
  • Various previous data settings in your RIP will need to be updated to meet the requirements of the upgraded SG-300/540 or VG-640/540. Your settings from before the upgrade cannot be used because they do not support TR2 ink.
  • Before beginning the upgrade process, be sure to have ready, a set of new TR2 ink, a Cleaning Liquid Pouch for TR2 ink and a bottle of Manual Cleaning Liquid for TR2 ink. Unless you have these items on hand, you will not be able to complete the upgrade.
