Roland DGA Corporation (Irvine, CA) has introduced its 54-in.-wide, VersaUV LEC-540 UV-LED inkjet printer/cutter that prints CMYK and white inks (plus a clear varnish) on media up to 0.04 in. thick. Roland said its new 540-UV, which has built-in front and back tables to ease rigid substrate processing, will print on an unprecedented range of materials, including popular large-format media.
The Eco Label and Energy Star certified LEC-540 is offered in three ink configurations: the standard CMYK, white, clear configuration; CMYK, white plus white for high-opacity white printing on transparent films; and CMYK, clear plus clear for thick dimensional effects such as embossing.
Clear ink can be layered into both gloss and matte finishes including 72 ready-to-apply patterns from the Roland Texture Library included in Roland’s VersaWorks RIP software.
In addition to its print and cut functions, the VersaUV LEC-540 can crease and perforate substrates and this versatility allows operators to create applications that range from packaging prototypes, short-run labels and membrane panels to interior décor items, point of purchase (POP) displays and large-format window graphics.
Roland said the 1,440 x 1,440 dpi LEC-540 features larger lamps in its LED-based curing system and this allows the machine to print faster than its previous VErsaUV models. Additionally, it images on a wide variety of flexible and rigid media, including synthetic paper, polyester film, paper and vinyl banner media, PET, leather, plastic, polycarbonates and paper boards.
Users of the LEC-540 can also take advantage of the Roland OnSupport system which allows remote monitoring of production activities. When a job is completed or ink runs low, the printer will automatically send an e-mail notification to a smart phone or computer.
