Roland DGA Corporation, a leading provider of wide-format printers, printer/cutters and other advanced digital imaging devices, has announced the launch of its new 30-inch VersaUV® LEF2-300 benchtop flatbed printer. This next-generation LEF2 boasts all the advanced features of the 20-inch model released earlier this year, while also delivering 1.5 times the print area and printing speed. The LEF2-300 also incorporates new efficiency, convenience, and maintenance functionalities that raise overall performance to a higher level.
Like all Roland LEF series flatbed printers, the LEF2-300 can print directly on virtually any substrate or three-dimensional object up to 3.94 inches thick, making it ideal for a wide range of product customization applications. The LEF2-300 uses Roland’s specially formulated ECO-UV inks in CMYK, as well as Gloss and White inks that allow users to incorporate specialty finishes, realistic textures, or 3D effects for a whole new dimension of customization. Additionally, with its larger 30.3” (W) x 12.9” (D) x 3.9” (H) print area and higher-volume output, the LEF2-300 is an expansive solution that fits the productivity needs of growing businesses.
The LEF2-300 employs UV-LED lamps to instantly cure ink on the surface of material with UV light, allowing photos, graphics and fine text to printed onto PVC, plastics, canvas, wood, leather, fabric, and other materials with unsurpassed print quality. Roland’s specially formulated ECO-UV inks are designed for flexibility, enabling it to be used on curved and 3D objects, as well as a wide variety of materials, without cracking.
The new LEF2-300 feature enhancements make customizing or personalizing everything from plaques and giftware to golf balls and smartphone covers quicker, easier and more cost-effective than ever. A Start Timer Function completes print head cleaning setup and White ink circulation automatically by your designated start time, while a positioning fixture makes it easy to align items on the print table. For greater maintenance efficiency and convenience, the LEF2-300 adopts a new cleaning system that helps maximize printer reliability and reduce ink consumption during maintenance procedures. The LEF2-300 is also equipped with a safe, see-through cover that prevents dust from settling onto the surface of materials while printing. Additional new LEF2-300 features include a Multiple Print Function that allows you print the same data again with the touch of a control panel button, and a Printer Status Monitor for checking the operating status of multiple printers in real-time.
“The new VersaUV LEF2-300, along with our recently launched LEF2-200 flatbed, usher in a new era of customization performance,” said Jay Roberts, Roland DGA Product Manager, UV Printers. “Built to help users expand their product offerings, build their businesses, and increase profits, the LEF2-300 is an excellent choice for those looking to create a vast array of customized and personalized products quickly and easily, while maximizing production capability, efficiency and profitability.”
The LEF2-300 also comes with feature-filled VersaWorks® 6 software – Roland’s most powerful, user-friendly RIP to date – with 64-bit processing, advanced RIP capabilities, useful cropping, tiling and nesting tools, and more.
