VersaUV LEF-300 Benchtop Flatbed Printer
The LEF-300 is the latest and greatest of our VersaUV LEF series of flatbed printers. It offers the same brilliant color and direct printing capabilities on a vast array of materials, including three-dimensional items up to 3.94” thick, and now also enables printing larger items and higher quantities. Featuring a 30” print width, four print heads and two UV-LED lamps for faster curing, the LEF-300 significantly increases productivity and delivers stunning results.
Versatility ofthe LEF-300
The LEF-300 puts flatbed printer production into overdrive with a larger print area and faster print speeds – approximately 1.6 times faster.
A Whole New Level of Speed and Production
The LEF-300 puts flatbed printer production into overdrive with a larger print area and faster print speeds – approximately 1.6 times faster than previous models when in CMYK mode. It allows users to take their graphic production and print customization to the next level.
Achieve High-Quality on a Wide Range of Materials
While a vacuum table makes it easy to hold thin materials in place, the LEF-300 is also able to accommodate items up to 3.94 inches in height. With the LEF-300, you can print on a wide variety of substrates such as PET, ABS, and polycarbonate, and soft materials such as TPU and leather, as well as three dimensional items, including pens, smartphone cases, signs, personalized awards, giftware, promotional items, laptop covers and more. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Power-Up Your Workflow
The LEF-300 offers a host of productivity features, including:
- Expanded print area 30” wide by 13” long
- Four print heads increase production speed
- Two UV-LED lamps – which allow for bi-directional printing – ensure instant ink-curing
- White and Gloss ink are circulated through two rows of nozzles each, for fast, multi-layer printing with increased density and opacity
- New draft print mode for users in need of quick prototype print
Advanced ECO-UV Inks for Outstanding Results
Designed for flexibility, ECO-UV inks image beautifully and conform around the most complex corners and curves, allowing users to customize everything from gifts and novelties to industrial parts and product prototypes.
Create Textures and Embossing Effects with Gloss Ink.
ECO-UV ink options include high-density white ink for greater brilliance on clear or dark-colored materials and Gloss ink for gloss and matte finishes. Multiple layers of clear ink can be applied to simulate embossing and 3D textures, and the included VersaWorks Dual RIP software comes with 72 ready-to-use texture patterns.
Built to Meet High-Volume Demand
In order to maintain accurate high-quality printing, even during long production runs, the LEF-300 Flatbed Printer incorporates precision parts that are not susceptible to changes in temperature or humidity. To meet the needs of high-volume production and manufacturing facilities, the LEF-300 also includes an input/output system for integrating machine status lights and other assembly line tools – enabling scalable production with multiple LEF-300’s.
Automatic Height Adjustor
When printing on 3D items, the LEF-300 features a height adjuster that automatically moves the flatbed printer table back and forth until it reaches the required height. This automatic function also ensures quality print production by maintaining an optimum distance between the print head and the material
Optional BOFA Air Filtration Unit
Combine the LEF-300 with an optional BOFA air filtration system to ensure proper ventilation, while also functioning as a stand and storage unit for fixtures and supplies. The LEF-300 is also able to connect to other standard air filtration systems.
Keeping Mist Away for Better Print Consistency
The LEF-300 features an ink mist absorption system that collects and removes airborne ink mist inside the printer, a fan installed around the print head, blows ink mist into an adsorbing filter to maintain a consistent printing operation.
Unmatched Print Quality with Roland Intelligent Pass Control
Across a wide variety of applications and media, Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology delivers outstanding image quality in all print modes while eliminating virtually any signs of banding. This patent-pending system ensures that graphics look great when viewed indoors or outdoors, up close and at a distance.
Automated Ink Circulation for Consistent Image Quality on Long Runs
When printing on 3D items, the LEF-300 features a height adjuster that automatically moves the flatbed printer table back and forth until it reaches the required height. This automatic function also ensures quality print production by maintaining an optimum distance between the print head and the material surface.
Printing white and CMYK onto bottles and cylindrical objects is an absolute snap with the new RotaPrint attachment for the VersaUV LEF-300 flatbed printer. Simple to install and remove, it utilizes the LEF-300’s existing feed system and enables the LEF 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.
Includes New VersaWorks 6 RIP Software
VersaUV LEF series printers includes 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.
Roland OnSupport for Remotely Managing Your Printer
The LEF-300 features Roland OnSupport, an online customer support system that allows users to remotely track the printer status and send e-mails to users notifying them when a job is completed or when ink is running low. Users can download firmware updates and important product information at an exclusive website in just one click.
