Image2Output turns to Roland VersaCamm to expand into packaging
Hatfield-based supplier Image2Output has added Roland VersaCamm VS and VersaUV LEC machines to its offering in order to extend its services with products for digitally generated and colour managed proofing and prototyping for the packaging sector.
The VersaUV LEC-330 and LEC-540 are being promoted by Image2Output for proofing and packaging mock-ups. Roland explains the machines offer in-line cutting and creasing as well as printing ability for 'virtually all' materials including packaging substrates up to 1mm thick. The units also feature white and clear varnish for matte and gloss finishes and textures. In addition, the VersaCamm VS series features white ink as well as metallic and is suitable for jobs including displays, posters and decals.
"The growing demand for foolproof, user-friendly solutions for proofing and prototyping is accommodated by our latest wide-format print-and-cut solutions. Thus, the appointment of Image2Output as a partner comes at exactly the right time as more and more companies are wanting to move across to colour managed digital systems," states Steve Chappell, UK business development manager, Roland DG (UK).
Lance Britnell, director at Image2Output, adds: "We were impressed by the build quality and versatility of the Roland printers and feel there is huge potential for them in both new and emerging market applications."
