GMG's key concepts—standardization and repeatability—and the versatility of the Roland printer allow for highly individual digital mockups. While the color management in GMG ColorProof ensures accurate process and spot color reproduction, the printer is kept in tight tolerances by the calibration and recalibration capabilities of the software.
- The TrueVIS MG series by Roland features powerful print and cut UV inkjets designed for high quality package prototyping and short-run production with the ability to print on a vast range of media.
- The TrueVIS MG series features an LED curing system and additional ECO-UV inks in White and Gloss, printing at resolutions up to 1440 dpi. The new print head is optimized for precision dot placement. Roland ECO-UV inks are designed to adhere to a broad range of media.
- The more powerful LED lamps make ink curing even faster. The new print head and LED lamps also help to increase ink density, in particular the opacity of the white ink.

Supported ink configurations
The TrueVIS MG series is available in different ink configurations, of which the following are supported by GMG ColorProof:
- CMYK, Gloss, Gloss, White, White
- CMYK, Orange, Red, Gloss, White
- CMYK, Orange, Red, White, White
Special inks (white, metallic, and clear inks as supported by the printer) are handled as spot colors in GMG ColorProof (unless you are using an MX profile with white ink information which allows you to map the image white channel to the profile white channel). You can fine-tune the behavior of the spot color channel by adjusting the Area Coverage or by using a spot color gradation (sfg) file. You can also control the color composition by defining the tonal value and opacity of each ink, for example defining the amount of metallic ink used in a spot color.
- Color Channels
With the integrated cutting technology, these printers offer a one-step operation which is also supported in GMG ColorProof. This way, you can create mockups already cut into shape.
- Cutting Contours
- To achieve maximum print quality, we recommend that a Roland technician adjusts the print head position by 0.6 mm (from 2.2 mm low/3.2 mm high to 1.6 mm low/2.6 mm high).
- Due to the Intelligent Ink Circulation System, the white and clear inks are circulated every eight hours to keep the tube system in the printer clean. The white ink cartridge, however, still needs to be shaken prior to use each day to achieve homogeneous print results.
Roland VersaUV LEC2 series
Roland discontinued the VersaUV LEC2 series, but you can of course continue to use your VersaUV LEC2 printers in the application. From version 188.8.131.522, the Roland VersaUV LEC2-330 is displayed as Roland TrueVIS MG-300, and the Roland VersaUV LEC2-640 is displayed as Roland TrueVIS MG-640. The GMG drivers for the TrueVIS MG models fully support the VersaUV LEC2 models.
