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:

  • It is very important that prior to the to upgrade that firmware 3.1 is installed. Links to the firmware and instructions will be provided. After the upgrade, then upgrade the firmware to to 4.0 and 4.1.
  • The Value Up Kit contains all the items you need for transitioning your VG or SG to TR2 Ink set-up. The kit will reflect a 25% discount from MSRP if ordered on or before September 30, 2020 and includes TR2 Ink, TR2 cleaning pouch, and a manual cleaning kit.
  • The Value Up Program is intended to be completed by the end user.
  • You will need to download updated profiles from the Roland Profile Center for your TrueVIS with TR2 inks. Output results with TR2 ink will be different from those of TR ink (TrueVIS INK).
  • Automated cycles will be shortened and happen less often. Manual maintenance prompt will change from once a week to once every two weeks. You can continue manual cleaning once a week if that is your current schedule.
  • Both TR2 and TR (TrueVIS INK) provide outstanding image quality and color gamut. This color quality is slightly different when comparing the two inks, due to enhanced dot patterns when using TR2 inks that provide improved image quality. This may also slow down print speeds in some modes by about 10%.
  • 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.
