The Wonder of ECO-UV Ink

- Produces durable indoor graphics with scratch and chemical resistance

*Height difference of no more than 2 mm recommended
Create Textures and Embossing Effects with Gloss Ink.
ECO-UV ink options include White ink for greater brilliance on clear or dark-coloured materials and Gloss ink can be cured in two ways for gloss or matt finishes. Multiple layers of Gloss ink can be applied to simulate embossing and 3D textures, and the included VersaWorks Dual RIP software comes with 72 ready-to-use texture patterns.
Ink Efficiency and Consistency
The LEF-12i has an Automated Ink Circulation System that significantly lowers running costs while maintaining sharp image quality and brilliant colours, 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.
The LEF-12i features an ink mist absorption system that collects and removes airborne ink mist inside the printer. A fan installed around the print head, extracts ink mist into an absorbing filter to maintain a consistent printing operation.
Unmatched Print Quality with Roland Intelligent Pass Control
Across a wide variety of applications and media, Roland Intelligent Pass Control technology delivers outstanding image quality in all print modes while virtually eliminating any signs of banding.
Energy Efficient UV Lamp
The LEF-12i features an energy-saving LED lamp that lasts up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps. It 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.
All new VersaWorks™ Dual RIP Included
The LEF-12i includes new VersaWorks Dual RIP software, featuring a new core engine for faster previewing times and improved handling of PDF and EPS files, including files with drop-shadows and transparencies.
VersaWorks Dual minimises the need to return to design software as you can set-up special colour layers like White and Gloss directly in the RIP software.
You also get a host of advanced and ease-of-use features including a Predictive Ink Calculator, spot colour replacement with built-in PANTONE® libraries and a Roland Texture System Library with a wide range of ready-to-use Gloss finishes and other effects. In addition, you can rotate, set spacing and Maintain Clipped Position within the RIP to give you more control when printing graphics and applying Gloss Ink effects.
With the LEF-12i and VersaWorks Dual you can choke white ink placement, to enable perfect registration of colour graphics on top.
