Roland introduces TrafficWorks, a turnkey traffic sign printing solution
06 March 2021: Roland DGA has introduced Roland DGA TrafficWorks in association with leading media manufacturer ORAFOL. TrafficWorks is a turnkey traffic sign printing solution that enables print service providers to expand their product offerings and create new revenue streams. According to Roland’s official communiqué, TrafficWorks also offers traffic sign companies a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution for producing traffic signage in-house.
Roland TrafficWorks makes both designing and printing industry-standard MUTCD-, ASTM- and FHWA- compliant traffic signs simple, while also minimizing production costs. The TrafficWorks solution, designed around Roland DG’s TrueVIS VG2 wide-format printer/cutters and wide-gamut, GREENGUARD certified TR2 inks, includes all the tools needed to produce full-color, reflective, color-compliant traffic signs.
The complete package includes either a VG2-640 or VG2-540, powerful, user-friendly Roland TrafficWorks design and RIP software (powered by SAi) featuring MUTCD compliant sign templates, a traffic-specific color library, fonts, and custom profiles, ORAFOL 5900 reflective media, and 5061 laminate, as well as Roland DGA certification and a digital training course. Customers who already own a VG2 inkjet that has an 8-color with Orange ink configuration can purchase the “kit” portion of the solution only, which includes all other package components except the VG2 printer/cutter.
TrueVIS VG2 series inkjets feature integrated contour cutting with up to 500G of downforce. The advanced capabilities and simple operation of the VG2, together with the specialized, intuitive Roland TrafficWorks design and RIP software, allow for a streamlined workflow for printing high-quality, color-compliant traffic signage.
