LEC2-300 UV Printer/Cutter

The LEC2-300 is a streamlined UV printer/cutter which delivers stunning quality print results.

Versatile and highly productive, it does the job of multiple devices by directly printing, cutting, creasing and embossing card, film and other materials in one seamless workflow so you can respond to your clients’ diverse needs, delivering on demand and on time.

  • Dual CMYK or CMYK with White and Gloss ink options for 3D textures, embossing and spot finishes
  • Precision dot placement for incredibly high quality prints
  • Save money and space with the ideal combined print, cut, crease solution for stickers, cartons, packaging, signage and more.

An All-in-One Solution for Labels, Packaging, Displays and Signs 

Much more than just a roll-to-roll printer/cutter, the LEC2-300 can perforate cut, crease, varnish and add special effects onto a huge range of press substrates and materials. With updated printheads, new UV-LED lamps, and other enhanced features, the LEC2-300 provides increased machine efficiency and delivers outstanding results for countless print and packaging applications.

Versatility for a Broad Range of Media Types 

Special Finishes for Exceptional Effects and Realistic Textures 

In addition to CMYK ink, the LEC2-300 can be used with Gloss and White ink configurations, for exceptional, premium-value printing. Clear (Gloss) ink can be used to add special effects like embossing and gloss or matt finishes, or for producing lifelike custom-textured effects by simply overprinting multiple layers. With 72 types of textured patterns included, it’s easy to create gorgeous prints that would usually require the use of time-consuming special printing methods.

Contour Cut Any Shape 

The LEC2-300 is an integrated printer/cutter that provides precision cutting as well as printing functions. This single device can automatically contour cut any shape around printed graphics, photos or text to produce adhesive labels, stickers, and custom-shaped displays without using a die punching machine.

Precise and powerful cutting force ensures crisp, clean lines around even the most complex shapes.

A perforated cut function allows adhesive media to be die-cut, eliminating the post trimming process and reducing turnaround times. Combined with the new Multiple Print function and a new precision media take-up system, high-volume jobs can be printed efficiently without attended operation.

8 Reasons Why You Should Choose LEC2-300 for your Business

CMYK plus clear (Gloss) ink for special gloss, matt, embossing, varnished and textured effects. High density white for printing on transparent or dark media

Impressive Media Compatibility
Wide range of printable material, including very thin media and real production stock for lifelike prototypes and proofing samples. The outputs are instantly dry and ready for use.

Includes Powerful RIP Software to Optimise Production
Comprehensive VersaWorks 6 RIP software with Harlequin-based engine. Easy to use, with multi-queue management, Pantone library and native Roland Color System Library to help you get the very best results, fast.

On-Demand, One-Off Production  

Unlike ordinary printing processes which require plate making, design data can be simply output from a computer to the LEC2-300 via the bundled VersaWorks 6 RIP software. The entire print production process is quick and simple—print as many copies as required when they are required. Urgent corrections or design changes can be printed right there and then. Impress clients by providing a tailored service beyond their expectations, even for jobs with limited copies or deadlines.

New Printhead and LED Lamps for High-definition Printing 

A newly developed printhead and LED lamps enable an even higher level of print quality. The new printhead is optimised for precision ink delivery and control. New, more powerful LED lamps make ink curing even faster. As a result, small text, elaborate textured patterns, gradations and other details are reproduced with high precision. By optimising the LED lamps’ position, the LEC2-300 produces high quality images even in bi-directional printing mode for increased productivity.*

* Compared with the LEC-330.

Higher Opacity White Ink for High-density Printing 

The new printhead and LED lamps also help to increase ink density. The opacity of white ink in particular—often used as a base coat when printing on transparent films or dark materials—has been increased by up to 40%*. In addition, a new HD (high density) mode that increases the density of white ink compared to the normal printing mode makes it possible to select the optimal ink density to suit your production requirements.

* Compared with the LEC-330’s standard mode.

High Reliability and Safety 

To minimise downtime, in the unlikely event of a printhead issue, a nozzle masking function allows the LEC2-300 to continue printing while using the remaining part of the printhead, enabling you to finish the print job while waiting for intervention.

The Detect Waste Liquid Bottle Level function alerts you to empty the bottle before it becomes full.

Intuitive VersaWorks 6 Ensures Efficient Production 

The LEC2-300 includes the latest VersaWorks 6 RIP & Print management software equipped with a user-friendly menu of functions to maximise performance so that high-quality printing can be performed immediately after installation

  • 64-bit Processing: A Harlequin RIP dual-core engine with support for PDF 2.0 and native 64-bit processing provides accurate rendering of PDFs with shadows and transparencies.
  • Modern User Interface: An icon-based interface with drag-and-drop functionality facilitates ease of use
  • Special colour plate generation: Special colour plate generation allows you to auto-generate White and Gloss layers with one click.
  • Colour matching function: Allows consistent colour matching when sharing print jobs among same-model printers and ink types or ensuring a single device is kept linear over time for colour accurate reprints.
  • 72 ready to use texture patterns: Seventy-two ready-to-use texture patterns are included to use.
