Roland expands its desktop flatbed UV printer range
Roland DG has launched the VersaUV LEF-20, the latest addition to its popular line of desktop flatbed UV printers, which offers greater productivity and outstanding print quality to providers of customised promotional products, souvenirs, giftware, awards, signage and consumer items, as well as industrial parts and packaging prototypes.
Commenting on the machine’s launch, Jerry Davies, Managing Director, Roland DG UK said: “Two years’ ago we launched the revolutionary LEF series, opening up an extraordinary new range of creative possibilities, by enabling businesses to print onto a wide variety of materials and products, including USB sticks, phone covers, photo frames, golf balls, coasters and many other personalised items. Now, we have now taken this technology to new levels of productivity and versatility, with a larger 20 inch print area, thus enabling it to be used in conjunction with larger items and to promote speedier printing of multiple smaller items.”
The new VersaUV LEF-20 thus prints directly onto items measuring up to 508mm in width by 330mm length and 100mm deep, equating to 20 iphone covers, or larger items such as laptop covers, signs or even a guitar body.
The UV-LED lamp cures ink instantly and enables users to print directly onto a wide variety of substrates, including PET, ABS, polycarbonate, TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane, which is commonly used to produce smart phone cases), leather and fabric materials, as well as 3D, industrial and consumer objects.
The LEF-20 fuses Roland ECO-UV ink in CMYK, white and clear formulations for bright, high-opacity images and text and, for jobs involving transparent or dark coloured materials, it uses advanced ECO-UV high-density white ink. Clear ECO-UV ink can also be layered into interesting patterns and textures in both gloss and matte finishes.
The new machine includes Roland VersaWorks RIP print management software, which features variable data printing, making it easy to personalise printed objects with individualised serial numbers, logos, graphics and names.
To coincide with the launch of the VersaUV LEF-20, Roland is offering a free half-day Better Business Boot Camp, which is designed to show users how the VersaUV LEF-20 will help them diversify their business through a whole range of applications and create strong and profitable revenue streams.
