The topic of latex inkjet printing can be a funny old thing at times. There are many who love their latex printers but there are also those who don’t. Let’s face it, most people who have invested in a latex printer probably made the decision to do so based on environmental concerns (my customers will love me more for having a latex printer over a solvent printer etc.) and they fell for much of the hype that HP fed the market.
I am still quite amazed how many people are not aware what the “eco” bit of Eco Solvent ink stands for. Many users believe that it stands for Eco as in “green” and when they are told the real meaning - economy, not ecological - they are surprised and almost feel cheated that they weren’t told this in the first place.
Roland DG says all new TrueVIS VG-640 and VG-540 machines can be shipped with configuration for White ink, alongside updated versions of machine and VersaWorks Dual firmware.
