GMG, a developer of color management software, and Roland DG, a provider of wide-format inkjet printers and printer cutters, have announced that the GMG printer driver for the UV-LED inkjet printer cutter VersaUV LEC-330, which allows the fast creation of mock-ups, is now available.

Working together, the Roland VersaUV LEC-330 and GMG color management offer companies in the packaging and labeling markets, including printers, design agencies, advertising agencies, repro houses and brand owners, technology for prototyping, mock-up and small batch production of packaging and labeling.

The VersaUV LEC-330 supports a wide variety of substrates including paper, paper compounds, transparent films, aluminum foils, PE and PET foils, plastic, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates which are used for offset, flexography, rotogravure and screen print production. High-opacity ECO-UV white ink is suitable for transparent media, allowing users to print brilliant colors on dark and transparent substrates. With the ECO-UV Clear ink, users can simulate gloss and matte finishes, embossed effects and spot varnishing.
GMG color management enables the VersaUV LEC-330 to achieve a visual match, locally and at remote locations, with the main print processes such as flexography, offset and gravure printing, even for spot colors. It ensures repeatability by calibrating target printers within tight tolerances. Furthermore, the simulation of cardboard, paper structure and register variations is supported to achieve color-accurate mock-ups with the VersaUV LEC-330.
