Roland to Debut the VersaLEJ-640FT Flatbed UV Printer for Flexible/Rigid Substrates
CLEVEDON, U.K. — April 14, 2016 — Roland DG (UK) LTD are pleased to announce the launch of the VersaUV LEJ-640FT, the newest in the series of popular 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.
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. Capable of printing on flexible or rigid substrates or objects up to 150mm (6˝) in height, and 100kg in weight, 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, says, "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 (63.25x98˝) print area*, making it ideal for printing on anything from signage and packaging prototypes 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; allowing for multiple workflows within one space and improving production.
The LEJ-640FT is also ideal for a busy print shop, where technicians may 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, whist the innovative Handy Panel included offers high levels of machine control without a loss of movement or being tethered to one workflow.
Elvidge continues, "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."
Included with the LEJ-640FT are a number of added benefits; firstly, Roland DG’s VersaWorks RIP software, the ideal way to produce high-quality prints with ease. Secondly; Roland OnSupport which 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 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 U.K. at Sign & Digital UK, taking place from the April 19-21, 2016, at Birmingham NEC. Visit the Roland DG (UK) Ltd stand (H30) for live demonstrations and further product information.
