Roland's First Hybrid UV-LED Inkjet Printer

Roland Expands VersaUV Line with New 64-Inch Model

VersaUV LEJ-640 UV-LED inkjet printer

Hamamatsu, Japan, April 26, 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 Tetsunori Niyama, Roland DG product 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*1. 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.

*1 Media support is dependent on its weight and surface. Test printing is recommended before final production

LEJ-640 Applications:

  • Add a gloss finish to cosmetic POP displays to create a luxurious luster

  • Choose from a wide variety of board stock for exhibits and décor

  • Create realistic packaging prototypes using corrugated board and other rigid materials
