LEC-330

Imagine producing one-off packaging prototypes and short-run labels on a vast array of substrates, including metallic and synthetic papers, foils, BOPP, PE and PET film, even leather and fabrics.

Roland’s DPI award-winning VersaUV LEC series is the world’s first UV inkjet printer/cutter line using safe, low-heat LED lamps. VersaUV prints CMYK + White + Clear for unmatched colour, texture and dimension. Clear coat adds remarkably rich special effects ranging from high-gloss finish for area highlights to custom-textured effects such as faux leather and crocodile skin. Roland ECO-UV inks produce graphics that are easy to handle and can be stretched across both curved surfaces and sharp edges without cracking.

The LEC-330 offers faster production printing up to 9.38 sq m./hr. and higher image quality up to 1440x1440 dpi, making it ideally suited for short-run production of labels and specialty graphics – as well as prototyping applications. The VersaUV LEC-330 can also be configured in your choice of three ink combinations. The LEC-330’s Intelligent Ink Circulation System optimises ink usage and minimises waste and an optimised hood design ensures compatibility with semi-rigid substrates including card stocks and polycarbonates.

Unmatched Quality Across a Wider Variety of Materials

The LEC-330 prints on a wide variety of media such as paper, film, and leather. In addition, it supports card stock, plastic board, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates (except metals) up to 1 mm (0.04") thick for a wide variety of prototyping applications.*
Artistic print mode 1440 x 1440 dpi is ideally suited for offset and gravure printers that require sharp, detailed graphics and text for their prototypes. Print quality is further enhanced by Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology which delivers smooth gradations and flawless solid fills with virtually no banding in every print mode.

*For best results, test print your LEC-330 graphics on each substrate before production.

Higher Productivity and Finer Quality

We have increased the print speed of the LEC-330 for maximum value and efficiency. The LEC-330 allows you to handle urgent requests by delivering finished prototypes, labels and products to your customers the next day. For example, the LEC-330 can print 100 wine bottle labels (as shown) in 46 minutes.*

* Print description: Each label is 104 x 99 mm ( 4" x 3.9") and was printed in CMYK in standard print mode using Roland VersaWorks RIP software.

Add Unique Special Effects - All on One Device

The LEC-330 beautifully prints your design and finishes graphics with rich special effects created by 3-dimensional layers of clear coat ink. 72 ready-to-use textures are available, adding luxury and distinction to your prototypes and comps. Choose any combination of matte and gloss finishes and layer them for interesting patterns. Use white ink to print on transparent and shrink wrap film for food packaging prototypes.

The LEC-330 offers 72 ready-to-use texture patterns.

The ECO-UV Ink with Three Ink Configurations

Across an unprecedented range of substrates, the LEC-330 prints ECO-UV inks in CMYK + White + Clear. The LEC-330 can be configured with any of these three ink combinations.

As the most versatile ink configuration, CMYK + White + Clear can be used for a wide range of applications with matte or gloss varnish and unique textured graphics.
The CMYK + White + White mode achieves higher opacity without slowing down the printing with overprinting. It’s perfect for white text and graphics, undercoats and to enhance the brightness of four-color prints.
The CMYK + Clear + Clear mode can build up three-dimensional textures twice as fast as the normal ink mode and can produce more dramatic effects with bigger reliefs.

The ECO-UV S Ink Opens Up New Opportunities for On-Demand UV Printing

ECO-UV S Ink stretches and perfectly conforms to curved or uneven surface. ECO-UV S Ink is an ideal solution for industrial prototyping of vacuum-formed and molding products and small lot production of signage or POP displays.

*: VersaUV users who are currently using ECO-UV Inks (EUV) can switch to the ECO-UV S Inks.

Performance

Print&Cut Streamlines Workflow

The LEC-330 is an integrated Print&Cut device that combines precision printing with an automated contour cutting function through one seamless workflow. Renowned Roland Print&Cut technology contour cuts the most intricate designs as well as larger graphics up to the full width of the media.

Contour Cutting Even After Lamination

For more durable graphics, simply remove prints, laminate and reload them for precision cutting. The Roland’s optical registration system, Quadralign®, prints crop marks at each corner of the media. When laminated media is reloaded, Quadralign® automatically realigns the cutting path and compensates for skew and distortion.

Advanced Media Take-Up System

The LEC-330 includes an automated media take-up system to facilitate precision unattended printing when using roll media. This pre-assembled unit includes an advanced tension-controlled take-up system for optimum media feed and tracking.

Automated Ink Circulation System for Consistent Long-Term Image Quality

The VersaUV series comes with Roland’s unique, automated ink circulation system that prevents the pigment in white ink from settling. This system automatically reduces waste of white ink, lowers running costs, produces exceptional image quality, and ensures consistent white density throughout the longest production runs.

VersaWorks RIP Software

The Roland’s true Adobe® PostScript® 3™ RIP is easy to use and incorporates the latest CPSI engine for exceptional production output. Features include estimation of ink usage and print time for each job, control of up to four Roland devices, and accurate color matching using the Roland Color System Library.


Compatible with the Industry's Leading Providers of Color Management System

With the support of the color management software, the model can reproduce tints that are similar to those realized by offset, roto-gravure and flexo-presses.

Optional deodorising system

An Optional Deodorizing Unit for VersaUV Series Models

An optional deodorizing unit is available for the VersaUV series models. It contains an activated carbon filter which effectively removes the odor and volatile substances that occur during printing. It is effective in making your work environment comfortable when the VersaUV is operating.
