May 31, 2011

The LEF-12 combines Roland's print technology, an advanced LED curing system and ink-saving features.

Roland DGA Corp. has announced a new addition to its inkjet printer line, the VersaUV LEF-12 benchtop flatbed UV printer. The LEF-12 combines Roland's award-winning print technology, an advanced LED curing system and ink-saving features to bring outstanding print quality and ease of use to providers of custom promotional products, giftware and awards as well as the packaging and prototyping markets for UV printed items.

“The LEF-12 enters the market as the most affordable, yet versatile printer in its class,” says Andrew Oransky, director of marketing and product management for Roland. “The LEF-12 goes beyond just CMYK and adds white and clear inks for printing directly on a wide range of items from thumb drives and pens to cell covers, laptops, wood, acrylics, glass and even metals. Clear ink enhances graphics with both gloss and matte finishes, and unique textures for premium results.”

The LEF offers a 12-inch by 11-inch printable area and supports a wide range of materials up to 3.94 inches thick and 11 pounds. A built-in laser pointer allows for easy setup, and advanced print head technology ensures photo quality output up to 1440x720 dpi.

Roland also recently introduced the VersaStudio BN-20 20-inch metallic desktop eco-solvent printer/cutter. A complete system, including VersaWorks professional RIP software, VersaStudio combines the versatility and advanced features of Roland’s latest inkjet printing technologies into a compact, affordable device, the company says.

“Our engineers developed VersaStudio exclusively for small-lot production of custom-designed graphics,” says Oransky. “VersaStudio sits right on the desktop, allowing professionals to quickly and easily produce full-color prints with metallic effects on demand. Integrated print/cut technology allows VersaStudio to contour cut graphics into virtually any shape without additional die cutting equipment.”

Oransky says VersaStudio is well suited for applications ranging from apparel heat transfers, labels and decals to comps, POP and promotional signage.
