Roland launches bigger desktop UV printer

Roland has launched a new desktop flatbed UV printer, the VersaUV LEF-20. This is targeted at producers of custom promotional products, souvenirs, giftware, awards, signage, and consumer items, as well as industrial parts and packaging prototypes. It prints directly onto items measuring up to 508mm in width, 330mm length and 100mm deep. This equates to 20 iphone covers, or larger items such as laptop covers, signs or even a guitar body.
It can print directly onto a wide variety of substrates, including PET, ABS, polycarbonate, TPU,*1 leather and fabric materials, as well as 3D, industrial and consumer objects, ranging from golf balls, key chains and pens to metal tablet covers, smart phone cases and awards.
It uses LED curing and has CMYK plus high density white and clear inks for bright, high-opacity images and text. The Clear ink can be layered into interesting patterns and textures in both gloss and matte finishes.
“Two years’ ago we launched the revolutionary LEF series, opening up an extraordinary new range of creative possibilities 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,” says Jerry Davies, Managing Director, Roland DG UK. “With the VersaUV LEF-20, we have now taken this technology to new levels of productivity and versatility, with a larger 20ins print area enabling both larger items and speedier printing of multiple smaller items.”
