Press release from the issuing company

New VersaUV® LEJ-640FT to be Unveiled at SGIA 2014 Expo in Las Vegas 

Irvine, Calif. – Roland DGA has introduced the VersaUV LEJ-640FT UV-LED flatbed printer, capable of printing on substrates up to six inches thick and weighing as much as 220 pounds. Roland will be unveiling the LEJ-640FT, along with other exciting new products, at the SGIA 2014 Expo, October 22-24, in Las Vegas.   

Featuring a 64” (W) by 98” (L) bed, the LEJ-640FT flatbed UV printer easily handles popular 4’ by 8’ sheets. A rigid, all-steel frame reduces vibration. Adjustable pinpoint guides ensure precise registration and a zoned vacuum bed optimizes suction to keep substrates of different sizes flat. Dual stepper motors incorporated with a rack and pinion drive system ensure accurate printing. 

In addition to CMYK, the LEJ-640FT offers White and Clear Coat inks for POP displays, art, architectural signs and two-sided signs with high visual impact and unique dimensional effects.  Roland’s ECO-UV inks adhere to a wide range of treated and untreated materials with an exceptional color gamut. A patented Roland Automated Ink Circulation System™ prevents unnecessary discharges and minimizes the settling of pigments in the ink lines.

The LEJ-640FT flatbed UV printer is operated through a handheld EZ Controller with a user-friendly interface. The EZ Controller is programmed to deliver 1/1000th of an inch accuracy for precise print registration and print head height adjustment. 

According to Jay Roberts, Roland product manager, the new flatbed’s six-inch gap and 220-pound capacity allows users to print on the widest range of materials and objects, opening up new opportunities for product decoration and industrial applications.  Like Roland’s other VersaUV series printers, it can produce 1440 x 1440 dpi prints with flawless gradations, super fine details and sharp text.  

The LEJ-640FT comes bundled with powerful VersaWorks® RIP software, which includes the Roland Color System and PANTONE® libraries for spot color matching.

Additional features that add to the LEJ-640FT’s ease-of-use and productivity include dual sensors for automatic media thickness detection and  print head protection, plus a cross-hair laser guide for precise base-point selection.

The VersaUV LEJ-640FT flatbed printer is backed by a Two-Year Trouble-Free Warranty and Roland’s world-class service and support.  Roland owners and users can also take advantage of helpful resources available through the Roland Academy, including webinars, videos and hands-on instruction covering everything from printer basics to advanced applications and production techniques.

In addition to introducing the VersaUV LEJ-640FT at SGIA 2014, Roland will be showcasing its new 64-inch dye-sublimation printer, the Texart™ RT-640, and the new 64-inch VersaEXPRESS™ RF-640 eco-solvent printer. Other products being shown for the first time at SGIA include Roland DisplayStudio™, a complete turnkey digital sign system that makes it easy for sign shops to introduce print customers to digital signage, and the new monoFab ARM-10, Roland’s first 3D printer. Visitors to booth 2759 can also get a firsthand look at Roland’s flagship SOLJET® Pro 4 XR-640 and advanced XF-640 wide-format inkjets, the innovative VersaUV LEF-20 benchtop flatbed printer, the compact yet powerful VersaStudio® BN-20 desktop printer/cutter, and more. Additionally, Roland will be conducting live, interactive in-booth presentations and vehicle wrap demonstrations daily.
