  • Perfect for pens, smart phone covers, personalized awards, giftware and so much more
  • Add White ink as a spot color or as a flood behind CMYK on dark backgrounds and clear materials

Achieve High Quality on a Wide Range of Materials

With the LEF-12i, 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, personalised awards, giftware, promotional items, laptop covers and more. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Thanks to the low-heat, low-energy UV-LED lamp utilised by the LEF-12i, working with heat sensitive materials is also easy.

Ink Efficiency and Consistency

The LEF-12i has an Automated Ink Circulation System for the white ink channel that helps to maintain a consistent white point and opacity, even on long print runs. Controlled ink circulation ensures that ink pigments can’t settle in the ink lines, resulting in smooth ink consistency and density.

Energy Efficient UV Lamps

The LEF-12i feature energy-saving LED lamps that last up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps. These can be instantly switched on and off for a true on-demand operation that doesn’t require a long warm-up time. In addition, the LEF has an automatic low-power mode that is switched on when not used after an extended period.

Mist Filters for Clean and Clear Printing

To ensure optimum print quality when printing around curves, mist filters have been added to the LEF-12i to collect the residual ink-mist when printing off the edge or curve of an item. This reduces overspray and stops ink from settling on internal parts. Filters are designed to be easily replaceable by the end user.


Roland VersaWorks Dual offers advanced features that include Predictive Ink Calculator and Spot Color Replacement. It also features a Pantone® Spot Color Library and a Roland Texture System Library with ready-to-use Gloss finishes and other effects.


Printing white and CMYK onto bottles and cylindrical objects is an absolute snap with the new RotaPrint attachment for the VersaUV LEF-12i flatbed printer. Simple to install and remove, it utilizes the LEF-12i’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.

Intuitive Roland VersaWorks management software

The LEF-12i includes Roland VersaWorks print management software, which features an intuitive interface for easy operation and job management. Roland VersaWorks allows the user to choose from generic mode for printing fine detail as well as a distance mode for printing on curved surfaces. Variable data printing is also available, making it easy to personalized printed objects with serial numbers and names.

Roland OnSupport Messaging System Included for Remote Production Management

The LEF-12i features Roland OnSupport, an online customer support system allowing users to remotely track the status of the printer’s activities. 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. With Roland OnSupport, users can also quickly download firmware updates and important product information by accessing an exclusive website with just one mouse click.

An Optional Deodorizing Unit to Create a Comfortable Work Environment

An optional deodorizing unit is available for the LEF-12i. It contains an activated carbon filter which effectively removes the odor and volatile substances that occur during printing. This unit can be installed easily underneath the LEF-12i.
