Roland DG launches two new UV printer-cutters with labels and packaging in mind

Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters, has announced the launch of the new VersaUV 64-inch LEC2-640 and 30-inch LEC2-330 wide format UV printer cutters to start 2021. Kevin Shigenoya, Vice President, Digital Printing Business Division, says that the LEC2 series printer-cutters offer unmatched production capabilities, including the ability to create unique special 3D effects using UV ink and contour cutting of printed images on-demand.

"We believe that the LEC2-640 and LEC2-330, with their superior versatility, is a powerful solution to support our customers in the immediate realisation of their creative ideas. With their value-added printing and cutting, incredibly diverse range of media support, and ease of use for even first-time users, the LEC2 series is ideal for a broad range of printing businesses for countless applications, including adhesive decals, labels and stickers, signs, POP, backlit panels, packaging prototypes and interior decor," says Shigenoya.

The LEC2-640 and LEC2-330 models announced today are the latest in a series expanding the UV product line and providing significant improvements in printing expression and functionality. Newly developed EUV5 ink supports CMYK, Clear, White and Primer options, expanding the colour gamut to produce vivid full-colour prints with special effects like simulated embossing and gloss or matte finishes. A True Rich Color print setting is designed to maximise the imaging capabilities of the LEC2-640 and LEC2-330 with the new inks for vibrant colour graphics with neutral grays, smooth gradations and natural skin tones. The new White ink, which is often used as a base coat when printing on transparent film or dark paper, achieves high opacity while the Primer ink makes it possible to print on media that was previously difficult or impossible to print on.

The latest print head and LED lamps enable an even higher level of print quality and high colour saturation. The print head has been optimised for precision ink firing and control, while the LED lamps are more powerful, to make curing the ink even faster. This combination delivers stunning images down to the finest details, from small text to elaborately textured patterns and gradations.

Two Models to Meet a Range of Application Needs

The new 64-inch model LEC2-640 adds support for large signage, displays and interior decor while new media feed options for the 30-inch LEC2-330 expand its capabilities for use in the fast-growing packaging industry. The optional TB-30 is capable of feeding film as thin as 30 microns for flexible packaging, and the ET-30 can handle a wide variety of paper stocks and aluminium metallised papers for folding carton packaging, including design comps, prototyping, and colour proofing for food, beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and more.

"In order for customers in the printing business to remain competitive," Shigenoya says, "it is critical to be flexible and to continue developing new business by adapting new applications in response to market trends and client needs. Roland DG will continue to provide new value to our customers' businesses and contribute to the development of the digital printing industry through unique, creative products and solutions."

The 30" LEC2-330 has a list price in Australian dollars of $41,794.50 inc. gst

The 64" LEC2-640 has a list price in Australian dollars of $43,994.50 inc. gst
