As the world’s first UV inkjet printer/cutters, the VersaUV LEC printer/cutters provide design agencies, repro houses, printers and brand owners in the packaging and label markets a new solution for packaging prototypes/proofs and short-run production of labels. For the first time, you can now print CMYK plus white and clear inks for varnishing and embossing effects on virtually any substrate and then crease and contour kiss-cut your designs, all on one device. The results are colour-accurate prototypes/proofs that are virtually indistinguishable from the finished product.
Roland has partnered with the industry’s leading providers of colour management and proofing software tools for the offset, gravure and flexography industries. As a result of these partnerships, new software drivers are available, providing a seamless workflow from design to finished print. Fully integrated solutions ensure that your packaging prototypes and proofs achieve a colour-accurate look and feel on your specified stock at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional processes.
LEC-540 model is 1.37m (54”) in width and LEC-330 model is 0.76m (30”) in width
ECO-UV ink is ideal for indoor graphics, offering superior scratch and chemical resistance. Outdoors, ECO-UV ink lasts up to two years when clear ink is applied as a finish and up to six months without clear. Packaged in no-mess 220ml cartridges, ECO-UV ink is VOC-free and safe after curing. With ECO-UV ink, adequate ventilation is recommended. The LEC series is ventilation-ready, featuring a ventilation hood for easy connection with an air filtration system.
ECO-UV ink adheres to a wide range of treated and untreated substrates with exceptional colour gamut. Instant-drying and flexible, ECO-UV ink produces prints that require no degassing and can be stretched and applied around curved surfaces and edges without cracking.
The VersaUV LEC printer/cutter is able to print directly onto an extensive range of materials, including metallic and synthetic paper, foils, BOPP, PE and PET film. The VersaUV also supports card stock, plastic board, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates up to 1 mm thick.
For wider applications, the Versa UV can also print directly onto synthetic and natural leathers, window coverings, fabrics and other interior décor items.
A powerful feature of the VersaUV is its ability to use ECO-UV clear coat to create a wide range of special effects, from overall matt or gloss finishes or stunning spot highlights. For ease of design the Roland Texture Library features 72 ready-to-use textures that can be achieved by layering the LEC’s clear coat ink. Plus you can use the clear ink to design effects such as water droplets, faux leather and crocodile skin...even Braille.
The LEC series includes an automated media take-up system to facilitate precision unattended printing and cutting. This pre-assembled unit includes an advanced tension-controlled take-up system for optimum media feed and tracking.
The Versa UV LEC printer/cutter streamlines the production process by automatically printing, and contour kiss cutting printed graphics all within the same device. By eliminating the need to reload and reposition graphics, the LEC integrated printer/cutter saves valuable time and effort. The LEC can contour cut through the top layer of lined media or create a perforated cut on non-lined media (like card stock for packaging prototypes). By changing the cutting tool, the VersaUV can also crease your media for easy, accurate folding of packaging prototypes.
This twin lamp configuration of the VersaUV enables a choice of gloss or matt clear finishes. When gloss finish is selected, only the right lamp is used for curing, allowing enough time for clear droplets to spread and form a smooth surface which reflects light evenly. For matt finish, both lamps are used, curing the clear droplets shortly after they land on the media to form a textured surface which scatters the light.

The system sends e-mails to users notifying them of important information such as when a job is completed and when ink is running low. Roland OnSupport users can also quickly download firmware updates and important product information.
Installation and on-site training is available as part of your LEC printer/cutter package..
The LED lamps contain many advantages over conventional UV lamps. Firstly, in terms of longevity the VersaUV LED lamps last up to 10,000 hours which is ten times longer than conventional UV lamps. Secondly, while conventional UV lamps can reach temperatures as high as 1500°F (800°C) requiring complex heat management systems, the LED lamps on the LEC series generate very little heat. This ensures that the UV lamps virtually eliminate any heat-related risks such as substrate damage and head crash caused by media deformation. It also means that they consume less energy than conventional UV lamps. And thirdly, LED lamps can be turned on and off instantly and are ready to use immediately after the printer is turned on. By contrast, conventional curing systems may take up to ten minutes to reach the targeted output level.
