Roland DG UK has officially confirmed the public availability of its VersaUV LEJ-640F wide format flatbed printer. A prototype of the new machine, which was showcased at Sign & Digital UK 2013, is the company’s first dedicated flatbed printer.
Rob Goleniowski, Business Manager – Sign & Graphics, Roland DG (UK) Ltd commented: “This machine has generated tremendous interest since we introduced the prototype as our first dedicated flatbed offering at Sign & Digital UK last year. A year on, and we have an outstanding commercial model to offer the industry and it is a welcome addition to our growing family of UV machines.
“Now, with the public availability of a dedicated flatbed machine, we have achieved another true milestone in the continued evolution of Roland DG as one of this industry’s most dynamic and innovative manufacturers. The inherent flexibility of this machine is exceptional and we are looking forward to meeting with customers at Sign & Digital UK 2014 to discuss how they can diversify and grow their product offering and profitability by investing in this exciting flatbed UV technology.”
