Posted: June 17, 2011

Roland DGA Corp. 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,” says Andrew Oransky, director of marketing and product management for Roland. “The LEF-12 goes beyond just 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 1440 x 720 dpi.

A complete solution, including VersaWorks professional RIP software, VersaStudio combines all the versatility and advanced features of Roland’s latest inkjet printing technologies into a compact, affordable device.
