The Roland VersaUV LEF-12i feature energy-saving LED lamps that last up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps. These can be instantly switched on and off for a true on-demand operation that doesn’t require a long warm-up time. In addition, the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i has an automatic low-power mode that is switched on when not used after an extended period.
To ensure optimum print quality when printing around curves, mist filters have been added to the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i to collect the residual ink-mist when printing off the edge or curve of an item. This reduces overspray and stops ink from settling on internal parts. The filters are also designed to be easily replaceable by the end user.
Roland VersaUV LEF-12i printers include new VersaWorks 6 RIP software, featuring a new HARLEQUIN dual-core engine for faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF and EPS files, including files with drop-shadows and transparencies. In VersaWorks 6 you can automatically generate White, Gloss, and Primer layer directly in the RIP software with a Special Color Plate Generation feature. Users can also rotate, set spacing and Maintain Clip Position within the RIP to give you more control when printing graphics and applying Gloss Ink effects. Roland VersaWorks 6 also offers a host of advanced features that include five print queues and five hot folders— combined with the ability to store unlimited queue settings and native 64-bit processing that enables users to nest up-to 86 jobs and other increased capabilities.
Printing white and CMYK onto bottles and cylindrical objects is an absolute snap with the new RotaPrint attachment for the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i flatbed printer. Simple to install and remove, it utilizes the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i’s existing feed system and enables the Roland VersaUV LEF-12i to print cleanly and precisely onto a wide range of materials with a diameter between 1.6 to 3 inches (40 mm to 77 mm). With its sturdy build, RotaPrint is also consistently and reliably accurate, ensuring precise stepping during rotation.
Please note: Considering that you will be using software such as Illustrator, we recommend that you use as high performance computer as possible to reduce RIP processing time. We also recommend using a hard disk that has large enough capacity, as print files are often tens of GB in size (or larger) when data is high resolution.
