Roland Expands VersaUV Line With New Benchtop Flatbed UV Printer

New LEF-12 Prints and Simulates Embossing on Awards, Gifts and Promotional Items

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Roland DGA Corp. has announced a new addition to its inkjet printer line, the VersaUV LEF-12 benchtop flatbed UV printer. The LEF-12 combines award-winning print technology, an advanced LED curing system and exclusive ink-saving features to bring outstanding print quality and ease of use to providers of custom promotional products, giftware and awards as well as the packaging and prototyping markets for UV printed items.

"The LEF-12 enters the market as the most affordable, yet versatile printer in its class," said Andrew Oransky, director of marketing and product management for Roland. "The LEF-12 goes beyond CMYK and adds white and clear inks for printing directly on a wide range of items from thumb drives and pens to cell covers, laptops, wood, acrylics, glass and even metals. Clear ink enhances graphics with both gloss and matte finishes, and unique textures for premium results."

The LEF offers a 12-inch by 11-inch printable area and supports a wide range of materials up to 3.94 inches thick and 11 pounds. A built-in laser pointer allows for easy setup, and advanced print head technology ensures photo quality output up to 1440x720 dpi.

With the LEF-12, users get the benefits of long-lasting solid state UV LED curing technology for an energy-efficient, ozone-free work environment. Exclusive Roland ECO-UV ink provides exceptional color gamut and bright, saturated white images and text. Graphics can be finished with ECO-UV clear ink which produces patterns and textures and simulates varnishing in gloss and matte finishes. Clear ink can even be built up to create raised artwork and logos. Roland VersaWorks® RIP software is included, featuring 72 ready-to-apply patterns from the Roland Texture Library.

To minimize ink waste and the associated costs, an automated ink circulation system is included that prevents pigments in the white ink from settling. A fully enclosed system, the LEF-12 stays clean of dust and debris.

Priced at $29,995, the LEF-12 is available immediately through authorized Roland dealers. The LEF-12 is part of a complete VersaUV family of UV LED print devices. For more information on the VersaUV LEF-12, visit
