Roland DGA Announces Launch of New VersaUV LEF2-200 UV Flatbed Printer
IRVINE, Calif. — March 5, 2019 — Roland DGA Corporation announced the launch of the VersaUV LEF2-200 20” benchtop UV flatbed printer. Building upon the capabilities of Roland’s previous VersaUV benchtop flatbeds, the next-generation LEF2-200 incorporates innovative new features that increase ease of use and efficiency.
The LEF2-200 inherits the VersaUV LEF series’ renowned ability to print amazing full-color graphics and unique textures, including premium finishes such as simulated embossing, onto a vast array of materials and objects up to 3.94 inches (100 mm) thick. In addition, the LEF2-200 boasts improvements that make decorating everything from smart phone covers and plaques to giftware and personalized products easier than ever. A Start Timer Function completes print head cleaning setup and White ink circulation automatically by your designated start time, while a positioning jig makes it easy to align items on the print table. For greater maintenance efficiency and convenience, the LEF2-200 adopts a new cleaning system that helps maximize printer reliability and reduce ink consumption during maintenance procedures. A Head Refresher Feature removes any ink remaining on the print heads and cleans the print head surface to maintain the health of the printer. The LEF2-200 is also equipped with an airtight cover that prevents dust from settling onto the surface of materials while printing.
Included VersaWorks 6 software – Roland’s most powerful RIP to date – provides a wealth of useful tools. VersaWorks 6 features a new HARLEQUIN dual core engine for faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF and EPS files with drop-shadows and transparencies. This feature-filled software also lets LEF2 users automatically generate a White, Gloss or Primer layer directly in the RIP, making it simple to incorporate stunning textural and dimensional effects.
“With its added features, this cutting-edge flatbed ushers in a new era of UV printing efficiency, productivity and convenience,” says Jay Roberts, Roland DGA product manager, UV Printers. “The LEF2’s unique capabilities, along with our ECO-UV inks that cure instantly and stretch around corners and curves, make customizing or personalizing just about anything a breeze. Plus, enhancing CMYK graphics with premium gloss and matte finishes, White ink, or multiple layers of Clear ink to create simulated 3D embossing, has never been easier.”
