    Advanced Eight-Channel Print Head Technology

    VSi Series wide-format printer/cutters incorporate the latest in variable droplet inkjet technology. Each model boasts an advanced eight-channel Piezo inkjet print head containing 180 nozzles per channel in a gold-plated housing, specially engineered to reduce static and prevent clogging. With seven different droplet sizes available, the VSi Series achieves remarkably smooth gradations and richer density for photographic and high-resolution vector output. A new head protection plate and recessed print head prevent head strikes from rippling media.

    Print/Cut Advantage

    VersaCAMM VSi Series inkjets streamline the production process by automatically contour cutting printed graphics and eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics, saving you valuable time and resources.

    Print and Cut workflow

    Front-Loading Ink Cartridge System

    front loading inkEvery VersaCAMM VSi Series Printer/Cutter features a newly designed, easy -to-access front-loading ink cartridge system for increased convenience and ease of use.


    ECO-SOL MAX® 2 Inks

    ECO-SOL Max 2 inkRoland's new environmentally-friendly, high-definition ECO-SOL MAX® 2 eco-solvent inks are specially designed to optimise image quality and colour on a wide range of coated and uncoated media. ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks are virtually odorless, nickel-free and GREENGUARD Gold certified for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor air, ensuring a healthier work environment. Inks are packaged in convenient 440 ml cartridges (White and silver available in 220 ml cartridges only) and are water, scratch and UV resistant up to three years outdoors*. Combined with variable droplet technology, Roland ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks deliver more brilliant colour with superb detail in the highlights and smoother blends and transitions overall.

    *Outdoor durability is based on accelerated weather tests. Results may vary depending upon location and application. Dry times vary depending on specific media characteristics. Lamination may be required for some applications or environmental conditions.

    Light Black, Metallic Silver and High-Density White Specialty ECO-SOL MAX® 2 Inks

    Light Black inkNew ECO-SOL MAX® 2 specialty inks enhance the image quality of Roland’s VSi Series printer/cutters, even at higher speeds, allowing for stunning effects and adding value and sophistication to any graphic.

    • Light Black - For better reproduction of gray colour gradients and more natural skin tones.
    • Metallic Silver - This silver ink can be printed as a spot colour or combined with CMYK to produce over 500 striking metallic and pearlescent colours.
    • High-Density White - Allows for greater opacity.


    Print Speeds

    With print speeds of up to 26.9 m2/hour for CMYK applications (VS-640i) and print/cut capability, the VersaCAMM VSi further expedites the production cycle by allowing you to print and contour cut your designs together – even unattended – in one easy step.

    Low Running Costs

    ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks boost the performance of Roland’s VersaCAMM inkjets at low running costs that both you and your customers will appreciate. Advanced features such as ink recirculating systems help to reduce wastage and hence lower operating costs.


    Two Print Modes for Metallic Effects

    Metallic ink sampleChoose from Blended and Layered print modes to optimise metallic images. Blended mode mixes CMYKLcLm and metallic silver ink together to produce more natural metallic colours, while Layered mode prints metallic silver first, followed by CMYKLcLm in one pass to add richness to metallic effects.

    Automated Ink Circulation System

    Ink CirculationUnlike other digital printing equipment, VSi Series wide-format printer/cutters come standard with Roland’s automated Ink Circulation System to prevent the pigments in metallic silver and white inks from settling. Designed to reduce waste of white and metallic silver ink, the circulation system dramatically lowers running costs while ensuring exceptional image quality throughout the longest production runs.


    VersaWorks® RIP Software

    VersaWorks®Developed exclusively for Roland inkjet printers, and printer/cutters, VersaWorks® RIP software takes full advantage of the VS-i capabilities. VersaWorks® includes advanced error diffusion and 16-bit rendering for exceptional production output and unmatched ease-of-use, and is fully compatible with Windows® 8 Pro and Ultimate editions, Windows® 7, Vista and XP. Along with features such as variable data printing, embedded ICC support, ink level adjustment tools and advanced cropping, tiling and nesting options; the newest VersaWorks® features include the following:

    • Predictive Ink Calculator and Alert: For flawless unattended printing, a predictive ink calculator estimates the amount of ink needed for each job. When there is not sufficient ink to complete a job, the RIP notifies the operator prior to printing.
    • Spot Color Replacement Tool: Allows an operator to specify Roland colors directly in VersaWorks® without the need to spend a great deal of time re-opening the source file to make changes.
    • Built-in PANTONE® Spot Color Library: This new library helps streamline the conversion process from PANTONE® to CMYK colors and ensures accurate PANTONE® colour matching

    Roland OnSupport® Production Assistance

    OnSupportAmong the many benefits of owning a Roland inkjet is its ability to share information with you so you can print with confidence, even when you’re not there. A predictive Ink Calculator lets you see whether you’ll have enough ink to run the print jobs you’ve posted to the queue. Roland OnSupport then sends an e-mail to your computer or smart phone, notifying you when a job is completed or ink is running low.

    Roland Intelligent Pass Control™

    RIPCRoland Intelligent Pass Control technology, developed by Roland software engineers, represents the pinnacle of inkjet printing. This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes and delivers unprecedented imaging performance in all resolutions. Roland Intelligent Pass Control enables the VS-i to produce exceptionally smooth gradations and solid colours with virtually no banding in all print modes.


    Advanced Media Handling

    Media handlingTrue production printers, each VSi Series model features an advanced media handling system.  The VS-640i allows users to feed rolls up to 88 pounds, while the VS-540i and VS-300i can handle rolls of up to 66 pounds and 55 pounds, respectively. Upgraded media flanges and seven pinch rollers secure the heaviest media in place, providing accurate feeding and tracking throughout the longest production runs. Print head height is adjustable to accommodate variable media thicknesses.


    For laminated graphics, our Quadralign four-point optical registration system allows users to remove prints, laminate and simply reload them for precision cutting. Quadralign automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion. Every VSi Series model can also function as a stand-along vinyl cutter.

    Wiper Systerm

    A patent-pending wiper system is included to decrease wear and tear on the print head and prolong its life by reducing ink buildup. The VSi Series includes a combination of standard wipers and additional side wipers that reduce the maintenance issues caused by ink reservoirs and dust, resulting in fewer manual cleanings.


    Integrated Heating System and Optional Dryer

    Optional DryerRoland printers are designed to dry prints quickly, even in high speed modes, for immediate finishing, installation or collection by the take-up system. Every VSi Series wide-format printer/cutter features a built-in, two-stage integrated heater system that accommodates a wide range of media. This advanced system delivers the proper amount of heat for each application, yielding outstanding results every time. For added convenience, users can store individual settings right in the printer. To ensure the highest image quality when printing white and metallic silver inks, Roland also offers the dryer system as an option for VersaCAMM Series models.

    Environmental Certifications

    GreenguardIn addition to using GREENGUARD Gold certified ECO-SOL MAX® 2 inks, every VersaCAMM VSi Series printer/cutter is engineered for environmental efficiency. That means each model is equipped with features that minimise ink consumption and reduce environmental waste and operational costs.  VersaCAMM VSi Series printer/cutters are also certified by Roland’s Eco-Label system, an ISO 14021 Type II label certifying compliance with the company’s internal environmental standards. All ECO-SOL MAX® 2 cartridges are eligible for the Roland recycling program.

    Standard Roland Features
