Hamamatsu, Japan, February 24, 2010 – Roland DG Corporation, the pioneer of integrated Print&Cut technology, today introduced the 30” wide LEC-300A, a new addition to its VersaUV inkjet series. Equipped with Roland ECO-UV inks, the LEC-300A prints CMYK+White+Gloss all in one device for luxurious, customized graphics with unique special effects and glossy and matte finishes. The LEC-300A is ideal for producing value-added prototypes such as packaging, control panels, labels and decals.
“To give businesses a competitive edge, the new LEC-300A offers all the robust features of Roland’s innovative VersaUV inkjet technology at a very attractive price point,” said T. Niyama Roland DG color product manager. “The LEC-300A allows businesses to quickly and easily produce realistic prototypes that are nearly identical to the final printed piece.”
The new LEC-300A accepts a wide variety of media including paper, film, leather, card stock, plastic, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates (except metals) up to 1 mm (0.04") thick. 50 ready-to-use textures are available, adding three-dimensional luxury and distinction quickly to designs. The LEC-300A includes innovative Roland Intelligent Pass Control® technology that delivers smooth gradations and flawless solid fills in every print mode.
