roland lec 540

Roland DG will be part of a team attending Packaging Innovations & Luxury Packaging London 2016, offering a full packaging prototype workflow that reduces the time required from concept to production; making it an ideal solution for businesses looking to move into the packaging mockup field for the first time, or to improve their prototyping methods for a more efficient and economical workflow.

Based on stand A22, Roland DG will be sharing the stand with Roland DG Authorised Dealer Revolution Digital, who have worked extensively within the packaging industry and can provide visitors to the stand with expert knowledge and valuable advice on anything from colour management to media choices.

On the stand will be the Roland DG VersaUV LEC-540, which alongside a Graphtec flatbed cutter (RV1660) provides a complete packaging mockup solution. The LEC-540 is the ideal machine for businesses who require in-house prototyping capabilities. Offering both UV printing and kiss cutting capabilities, as well as a variety of luxury high-quality special effects using White and Gloss inks, the LEC-540 provides versatility for short production runs of labels onto original flexographic material, as well as wide variety of sign, graphics and folding box board media.

Mat Drake, Business Manager for Commercial Print at Roland DG, says: “This year we’re bringing the full workflow to Packaging Innovations; with our LEC-540 and Graphtec’s cutter in combination there’s never been a better time to add digital production to your business. Bringing prototyping in house without sacrificing space or time can provide a whole new stream of profits for the packaging industry – and that’s something worth tapping in to.”

The combination of the LEC-540 and the Graphtec cutter will provide businesses an easy-to-use, quick solution to the prototyping process, enabling users to produce accurate, to-scale packaging mockups onto the final production materials, no matter what the turnaround time is, and wow their customers in the process.  

For those interested in discovering exactly how the LEC-540 and full prototyping workflow can benefit their business, Packaging Innovations will run from the 14th-15th September at Olympia, London.
