Roland Expands VersaUV Range with a new 64" Model

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, APRIL 28, 2011 - Roland DG Corporation., a worldwide leader in wide-format UV-LED inkjet technologies, today introduced the new 64-inch (1625mm) LEJ-640 UV-LED inkjet printer. The newest addition to Roland's award-winning VersaUV line, the LEJ-640 prints CMYK, White and Clear Gloss inks on a wide variety of flexible roll media and rigid substrates up to 13mm (.51") thick. Versatile by design, the LEJ-640 enables professionals to explore exciting new options for applications ranging from wide-format signage, displays and window graphics to POP, packaging prototypes and interior décor items.

"The LEJ-640 prints directly onto lightweight board and cardboard up to 13mm (.51") thick, widely used for decorated trade show and store displays," said Conrad Birkett, Roland DG Business Development Manager. "As a hybrid printer, it also supports flexible roll media such as window film. Innovative UV-LED lamps cure UV inks instantly, allowing users to finish graphics immediately without the delays associated with drying time."

The LEJ-640 is equipped with a host of advanced features that together streamline the production workflow, including a media-securing mechanism that holds flat substrates in place. This mechanism ensures that the substrate's form and surface finish remain intact, and supports even the thickest packaging materials. At 64 inches wide, the LEJ-640 allows users to quickly and easily create a wide variety of packaging prototypes -from folding cartons for cosmetics, medicine, electronic devices and software to flexible packaging such as for food and candy, with realistic details and finishes including custom varnishing and embossing effects.
