Roland DGA Corporation has announced the launch of its new VersaUV LEC2-640 and LEC2-330 next-generation UV printer/cutters designed for label, packaging, sign, display and interior décor production. The 64-inch LEC2-640 and 30-inch LEC2-330 include a number of innovative features that maximize image quality, increase print speeds, decrease ink usage and simplify user operation and maintenance.

The new printer/cutters expand the company’s existing VersaUV product line. Roland DG is also introducing new Greenguard Gold certified EUV5 ink available in CMYK, clear, white and primer along with the new machinery. Along with the new True Rich Color II print setting, the inks paired with the new printer/cutters widen the colour gamut and deliver vibrant graphics and natural skin tones. In addition, the new EUV5 White ink is higher opacity, which allows it to be effective as a base coat or when printing on transparent film or dark paper.

The LEC2-640 and LEC2-330 feature advanced print head technology for precision dot placement and control, as well as new larger, more powerful LED lamps for higher print quality, improved colour saturation and faster ink curing. In addition, the new printers feature new optimized cleaning and maintenance sequences that help keep the print heads clean. Both models feature sleek, durable construction and come with an included TU4 unit for automatic media take-up.

The 64-inch LEC2-640 is ideal for creating larger signage, displays and interior décor, while the 30-inch LEC2-330 works well for label and packaging applications. Both models can print on actual press substrates.

The LEC2-330 can include an optional TB-30 Tension Bar to enable direct printing on film as thin as 30 microns for flexible packaging. There is also an optional ET-30 Extension Table for this model that allows for printing on a variety of paper stocks and aluminum metallized papers for folding carton packaging jobs.
