Roland DGA Corp., and FLEXcon have teamed up to bring users of Roland's VersaUV LEC series of UV-LED wide-format inkjet printer/cutters a specialised pressure-sensitive polypropylene media for labeling applications.
"VersaUV is ideal for short-run label production and now FLEXcon has tailored its popular FLEXmark polypropylene label media for the VersaUV's unique dimensions and contour cutting capabilities," said Andrew Oransky, director of product management for Roland DGA Corp. "Roland inkjet printer/cutters print and contour cut designs all on one device, allowing professionals to create labels in any shape through one seamless workflow."
Winner of prestigious DPI and EDP awards and, most recently, the 2010 Label Industry Global Award for New Innovation, the Roland VersaUV inkjet printer/cutter goes beyond CMYK and White inks to offer Clear Coat which can be layered into unique textures and patterns for embossing and varnishing effects. VersaUV makes it affordable for printing professionals to produce custom short-run labels as well as unique packaging prototypes on a vast array of substrates that simulate the final product with unrivalled accuracy.
"We have taken high quality, pressure-sensitive polypropylene face media and married it to a customised, stay flat release liner that allows users to die cut and perforate label designs right on the VersaUV without additional finishing equipment," said Rick Harris, product manager of the Product Branding Business Team for FLEXcon. "FLEXmark polypropylene media (PP20CPLEC (2.0 mil clear); PP23WPLEC (2.3 mil white); and MPP20SPLEC (2.0 mil metalised silver) is available in 30" wide rolls to fit all three VersaUV models. FLEXmark polypropylene images well in a variety of print modes to create labels with beautiful effects such as embossing and printing with white inks."
Roland's VersaUV LEC Series inkjet printer in combination with FLEXcon's FLEXmark polypropylene will produce durable, high image quality labels for product identification and product promotion applications. Sample rolls are available from FLEXcon to qualify these materials for your application.
