Roland Announces 64-Inch VersaUV Hybrid Roll-to-Roll and Flatbed UV-LED Inkjet Printer

From POP Displays and Signs to Folding Carton Packaging Prototypes, New LEJ-640 Prints and Simulates Embossing on Media up to a Half-Inch Thick

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 26, 2011) - Roland DGA Corp. today introduced the 64-inch VersaUV LEJ-640 UV-LED wide-format hybrid inkjet printer. Based on award-winning VersaUV technology, the LEJ-640 prints CMYK, white and clear on substrates ranging from roll media to half-inch thick board stocks for premium custom graphics with unique special effects and finishes.

"The LEJ-640 takes package prototyping and specialty printing to the next level with support for both roll media and rigid substrates, including corrugated cardboard and foam board," said Hiroshi Ono, group product manager for Roland DGA Corp. "The LEJ-640 prints and simulates embossing on a wide variety of materials used for package prototypes, press proofs, membrane panels, wide-format signage, POP, window displays and interior décor items."

For optimum versatility, the LEJ-640 accommodates roll-fed and flat media, and comes equipped with a built-in sensor that ensures proper print head positioning. These advanced media handling systems enable flawless results on papers, films, vinyl, PET, leathers, plastics, polycarbonates and a wide range of board stocks. Safe UV-LED lamps are energy efficient and require no warm up time. High-quality, artistic print mode (1440 x 1440 dpi) produces images that rival offset and flexographic print quality.

The LEJ-640 is offered in three ink configurations: the standard CMYK + White + Clear configuration, CMYK + White + White for high-opacity white printing on transparent films, and CMYK + Clear + Clear for dimensional effects such as embossing. Clear ink can be layered to produce gloss and matte finishes, including 72 ready-to-apply patterns from the Roland Texture Library in Roland's VersaWorks RIP software.

To ensure reliability, the LEJ-640 is backed by the Roland OnSupport system, which allows remote monitoring of production activities. When a job is completed or ink runs low, an email notification is sent to any designated smart phone or computer. Unattended operation and easy maintenance are further supported by an Automated Ink Circulation System that prevents pigments in the white ink from settling. A built-in media take-up system is also included, supporting up to 88 pounds.

Priced at $67,995, the LEJ-640 is available through authorized Roland dealers. For more information, visit www.rolanddga.com/lej.
