Roland DG Announces New VersaWorks 6 RIP Software for Enhanced Efficiency and Performance

Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and 3D devices worldwide, today announced the release of Roland VersaWorks 6 RIP and print management software for inkjet printers and printer/cutters. VersaWorks 6 is the latest generation of Roland’s powerful RIP software, offering print service providers the ultimate in productivity, quality output and ease of use, to drive any print business.

VersaWorks 6 includes enhanced functions to streamline the entire printing process by generating high-quality print data that optimises the features of the printer, ink and media being used. “Our new VersaWorks 6 comes with an extensive range of features that makes the printing process more accurate and reliable for users, while also building upon the superb core functionality and ease of use of the previous popular VersaWorks software,” explains Yohei Shinomura, manager of Digital Printing Product Management.

To optimise productivity, VersaWorks 6 provides 64-bit native support to maximise performance from the latest 64-bit operating systems, for improved processing of complicated data, including complex vectors and multiple layers, with ease and precision. To further streamline workflows, 5 print queues each offer unlimited saved settings for recurring jobs, clients and media so users can save settings for specific client requirements and immediately reload past settings for recurring jobs.

For simple, efficient reworking of data and super-accurate image reproduction, PDF files can be processed natively to render transparencies, drop shadows and other special effects the way they are intended to look in the design. Plus, an easy-to-use colour matching function in VersaWorks 6 ensures consistent colour when using multiple printers of the same model and ink configuration, to provide accurate colour control when using more than one printer for volume production for the same client, or jobs involving large, combined graphics.

Inheriting the established user-friendliness of VersaWorks Dual, the intuitive VersaWorks 6 user interface has been redesigned to reflect the latest design trends and features more intuitive visual icons to enhance usability even further.

VersaWorks 6 RIP software will be bundled with the Roland DG inkjet printers and printer/cutter models listed below beginning in November 2018 and will be available from this website from 30th October 2018 as a free upgrade for users in the EMEA region with the models listed below.
