Large enough to print on anything from signage and packaging prototypes to non-traditional products.
The next generation of wide format flatbed printers in the VersaUV range has been launched by Roland DG (UK) LTD, the VersaUV LEJ-640FT. It’s designed with production flexibility in mind and is aimed at companies who need a larger printer as well as ECO-UV inks, including Gloss and White for luxury effects and textures.
It’s well able to print on flexible or rigid substrates or objects up to 150mm (6 inches) in height, and 100kg in weight. This combined with instant curing and the ability to print on non-traditional substrates should appeal to many businesses looking for versatility in the flatbed market.
Mark Elvidge, Business Development Manager, Roland DG (UK) Ltd, commented:
“The VersaUV LEJ-640FT is a product we’re proud to add to our UV range. With improved production workflow, a large, robust print area and advanced ECO-UV inks, the LEJ-640FT will provide the ideal solution to businesses who need something on a larger scale than the VersaUV LEF-300.”
The LEJ-640FT has a 1606mm x 2490mm (63.25” x 98”) print area*, large enough to make it ideal for printing on anything from signage and packaging prototypes to products such as guitar cases and heavier substrates. With the LEF-640FT’s quadruple zone vacuum technology, Roland DG pointed out that printing on large quantities of smaller substrates or items is also simple; allowing for multiple workflows within one space, thus improving production.
The LEJ-640FT is also suitable for a busy print shop which has to run multiple machines in tandem and manpower is at a premium. With the flatbed not requiring an external compressor, the floor space required is greatly reduced and the machine is more accessible from all sides. It also comes with the ‘Handy Panel’ which offers high levels of machine control without a loss of movement or being tethered to one workflow.
“With the included Handy Panel and quad zoned vacuum bed, a multi-product workflow with the LEJ-640FT is effortless. Intuitive controls, full Roland DG support and easy ways to keep track on your printing ensure using a wide format flatbed is as simple as using any of our UV printers, leaving you to achieve perfect prints and profits,” continued Elvidge.
Included with the LEJ-640FT are a number of added benifits. First is Roland DG’s VersaWorks RIP software, secondly; Roland OnSupport which enables users to remotely track production, with automatic alerts to their computer or smart phone to update them on the requirements of the printer for even more convenient print runs. Finally, the LEJ-640FT is supported with a one-year Silver RolandCare warranty, providing peace of mind to new users.
The VersaUV LEJ-640FT will be on display for the first time in the UK at Sign & Digital UK, taking place from the 19-21 April 2016 at Birmingham NEC. Visit the Roland DG (UK) Ltd stand (H30) for live demonstrations and further product information.
