Roland DG UK, a leading manufacturer of wide-format technology, today confirmed the UK and European debuts of the newly released 30’’ VersaUV LEC-300, the world’s first ultra-violet (UV) printer/cutter, and the company’s latest 64’’ VersaArt RS-640 printer.
The machines will feature at Viscom Europe, Paris, 24th to 26th September (stands A062, B062, C062) and at Total Print! Expo in London, 14th to 16th October (stand 316).
Jerry Davies, Managing Director, Roland DG (UK) says: “We are delighted to be premiering these machines at two important industry exhibitions. The VersaUV LEC-300 is strategically significant in that it heralds Roland DG’s entry into new markets, such as packaging prototyping, short-run label production and a host of niche applications. We’re confident both our ground-breaking UV printer/cutter and new 64” printer will attract considerable attention at Viscom Europe before they arrive in the UK at Total Print! Expo, where we will again co-host a stand with PaperCo. We look forward to introducing these exciting technologies to the market and discussing how they can give our customers a competitive advantage.”
The VersaUV LEC-300 can be used to produce realistic printed textures and patterns, such as faux leather and crocodile skin, on a variety of substrates. Roland DG has developed the world-first technology to take advantage of adjacent markets that require short-run, specialist products with UV ink.
The new 64’’ VersaArt RS-640, which has a list price of £10,999 including VersaWorks RIP, is unmatched in terms of price and output quality in its space, making it attractive to printers looking to develop additional, lucrative revenue streams for minimal capital outlay. The versatile VersaArt RS-640 supports a wide variety of media for applications ranging from high-end design proofs and photographic reproductions to stunning outdoor signs and banners.
PaperCo is one of Roland DG’s leading UK distributors of wide-format machinery to the commercial print market.
