Roland DG (UK) LTD have launched the VersaUV LEJ-640FT, the newest in the series of UV ink-based printers. With a "sleek design and improved usability", the LEJ-640FT represents the next generation of wide format flatbed printers in the VersaUV range, says Roland DG.
Designed with production versatility in mind, the LEJ-640FT offers businesses the size and functionality of a flatbed with the flexibility of ECO-UV inks, including gloss and white for luxury effects and textures. It's capable of printing on flexible or rigid substrates or objects up to 150mm (6 inches) in height, and 100kg in weight. And the combination of instant curing and ability to print on a variety of non-traditional substrates, makes the LEJ-640FT the "ultimate in versatility" in the flatbed market.
Mark Elvidge, Business Development Manager, Roland DG (UK) Ltd, said: “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 offers a 1606mm x 2490mm (63.25” x 98”) print area, making it "ideal" for printing on anything from signage to guitar cases and heavier substrates. With the LEF-640FT’s quadruple zone vacuum technology, printing on large quantities of smaller substrates or items is also simple.
With the flatbed not requiring an external compressor, the floor space required is greatly reduced and the machine is more accessible from all sides. Whist the Handy Panel included offers high levels of machine control without a loss of movement or being tethered to one workflow.
Mark said: “With the 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.”
Included with the LEJ-640FT are a number of added benefits such as Roland DG’s VersaWorks RIP software. And Roland OnSupport enables you to remotely track your production, with automatic alerts to your computer or smart phone to update you on the requirements of the printer. The LEJ-640FT is supported with a one-year Silver RolandCare warranty, providing "peace of mind" to new users.
