Fast, on-demand printing on one or many items
The Roland VersaUV LEF2 series really pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with print, adding value to off-the-shelf items by transforming them into unique, personalised pieces. Customise small and medium-sized items on demand by adding corporate branding and cool graphics - from a single object to longer production runs.
Personalise a huge range of profitable items such power banks, smartphone cases, laptop covers, promotional items, prototypes, souvenirs, pens, signs, personalised awards, giftware, cards and so much more.
With a height tolerance of 2mm you can even print onto curved and irregular shapes, and an optional rotary axis jig enables printing onto bottles and other cylindrical objects.
Print objects up to 200 mm
With the LEF2-300/200, materials up to 100 mm (3.94 in.) thick can be loaded, and a height tolerance of 2 mm facilitates printing on irregular and curved objects. Furthermore, the LEF2-300D supports a maximum thickness of 200 mm (7.87 in.) in the height direction, allowing you to print not only on thicker materials, but also on a wider variety of shapes by incorporating a more diverse assortment of jigs.
The VersaUV series also supports an optional rotary axis jig for printing onto bottles and other cylindrical objects.
Print directly onto a wide range of media
VersaUV LEF2 series technology makes it easy and efficient to print stunning, premium-quality photographs, graphics and finely-detailed text onto almost anything. Instantly curable Roland ECO-UV inks – including white and gloss options- are compatible with a jaw-dropping range of hard and soft materials, such as PVC and plastics, acrylic, canvas, wood, leather, aluminium, metals, glass and fabric1. Media up to 100 mm (LEF2-200 and LEF2-300) and up to 200 mm (LEF2-300D) thick can be loaded, and a vacuum table holds thin and tricky-to-handle media firmly in place2.
Feel the Colour with Gloss ECO-UV Ink
Print gloss or matt finishes, realistic textures, or 3D embossed effects to add an irresistible new dimension of “touch and colour”. Create your own special finishes or choose from 72 ready-to-use texture patterns in our Roland Texture System Library.
Offer Unique Custom Items with ECO-UV ink
Roland ECO-UV ink in CMYK, white and gloss dries instantly for a wide colour gamut with sharp details and vibrant colour density. ECO-UV requires no degassing and stretches around curves and irregular surfaces without cracking.
- Create colours that pop on dark, coloured or clear substrates by printing a base layer of Roland’s UV white ink.
- Optional on-board primer3 preps objects quickly and conveniently.
- Automated Ink Circulation System lowers running costs and prevents ink pigments from settling in the ink lines for even consistency.
- Mist filters catch surplus ink that mists off the edges of media to avoid overspray and stop ink from falling on internal components.
A Choice of Productivity and Printing Areas
The LEF2 lineup offers you a choice of three models with different print areas and printing speeds so you can match your work volume and the size of the material and objects you want to print.
Powerful VersaWorks 6 RIP Software Included
With powerful new 64-bit processing and RIP capabilities, plus cropping, tiling, nesting and other tools, the world’s most powerful RIP software, VersaWorks 6, makes production even simpler and maximises the capabilities of your print device.
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.
Icon-based interface with drag-and-drop functionality facilitates ease of use.
Supports data rotation and a partial print function that maintains position information.
Special Color Plate Generation allows you to auto-generate White, Gloss and Primer layers, directly in the RIP.
Spot embossing function speeds up printing of 3D embossed effects (supported only for the CMYKGlGlWh ink configuration on the LEF2-300).
Color-Matching Function allows easy colour matching for same printer models and ink types. Consistent colour matching is possible even when sharing print jobs with multiple printer units4.
Advanced RIP features include new print queue options, up to 40 job presets, UV post cure within the RIP and new 16-pass print mode (standard 720x720 dpi).
UV customisation with more ease and efficiency
The VersaUV LEF2 series is fully loaded with advanced features to simplify operation and make printing even faster. Completely enclosed when printing, it runs clean, cool with energy-efficient UV-LED lamps and low maintenance head technology. The LEF2 offers many new functions to streamline your print process.
Multiple Print function
Perform continuous printing efficiently. With the Multiple Print function, you can perform the next print just by pressing the start button on the machine, without returning to the software.
Roland DG Printer Status Monitor
Instantly check the operation status of multiple printers on a monitor. Manage your printing operation remotely, allowing you to set up your next production process without wasting time.
Start Timer function
Set a designated time to automatically complete the set-up procedures of printhead cleaning and white ink circulation, so it's ready for you to load materials and get printing straightaway.
Long Lasting UV Lamps
The LEF2 series uses LED lamps for UV curing that last up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps and can be instantly switched on or off, for true on-demand production without the typical warm-up time.
In addition, the LEF2 automatically enters a low-power mode when not in use for an extended period.
High Reliability and Safety
Remove any ink remaining on your printheads with the Head Refresher feature which cleans the printhead surface to maintain machine health and ink cost-efficiency.
Minimise downtime in the unlikely event of a printhead clogging - the new Nozzle Mask function allows you to continue printing while using half of the printhead.
The airtight cover protects operators from UV light and prevents dust from settling onto the surface of materials while printing.
Automatic Media Height system
The Automatic Media Height setting detects the height of the material quickly, while optimised printing table movements eliminate the move-down operation of the table when opening the cover and allow continuous operation when printing multiple items consecutively.
LED Alignment system
The built-in LED alignment system sets the origin point when printing on different media – use it as a two-point reference to detect flat substrates or as a centre origin point of reference on curved or odd-shaped items. It’s a handy feature to speed up your print job.
The LEF2 is great for printing directly onto unusually shaped items and the special positioning jig helps you align them easily on the print table.
Roland Intelligent Pass Control
Controls dot placement between each pass for faster throughput and excellent image quality in all print modes.
Intelligent test printing
Save time and materials by altering the test print position – test print on the same material multiple times.
Print from anywhere – the built-in Ethernet connection allows you to connect your LEF2 to your existing network.
Plug and Print
LEF2 series UV printers simply plug in to a standard electrical outlet. Using a fraction of the power that other flatbed printers demand, an LEF2 offers significant savings on electrical costs per year.
Ideal for efficiently and accurately securing thin materials and delicate media, the LEF2-300 and LEF2-300D2 features a built-in vacuum table for stable printing and high-quality results. An optional vacuum table is also available for the LEF2-200.
Print on cylindrical surfaces
The optional SC-RD rotary axis can be added to a VersaUV LEF2 (LEF2-200 and LEF2-300) in just minutes, allowing you to print directly to the entire surface of cylindrical objects, up to 360º
Compatible with cotodesign software
