Is it Real or Printed?
Fast, on-demand printing on one or many items
The Roland DG VersaUV LEF2 series really pushes the boundaries of what’s possible with print, adding value to off-the-shelf items by transforming them into unique, personalised pieces. Customise small and medium-sized items on demand by adding corporate branding and stunning graphics - from a single object to a short production run.
Print objects up to 200 mm
The LEF2-300D supports a maximum thickness of 200 mm (7.87 in.) in the height direction, allowing you to print not only on thicker materials, but also on a wider variety of shapes by incorporating a more diverse assortment of jigs.
Print directly onto a wide range of media
VersaUV LEF2 series technology makes it easy and efficient to print stunning, premium-quality photographs, graphics and finely-detailed text onto almost anything. Instantly curable Roland DG ECO-UV inks – including white and gloss options- are compatible with a jaw-dropping range of hard and soft materials, such as PVC and plastics, acrylic, canvas, wood, leather, aluminium, metals, glass.
Feel the Colour with Gloss ECO-UV Ink
Add gloss or matte finishes, realistic textures, or 3D embossed effects to add a whole new dimension of “touch and colour.” Develop your own special finishes or choose from seventy-two, ready-to-use texture patterns in our Roland DG Texture System Library. Roland DG ECO-UV clear ink also enables you to print functional tactile finishes such as Braille and raised text directly to media in shiny gloss or matte.
- Multi Layered Printing
- Gloss Finish
- Matte Finish
State-of-the-Art Ink Printing
Print graphics with smooth colour and exceptional detail on a virtually limitless range of merchandise, materials and products.
- CMYK, White and Gloss ECO-UV inks offer stunning results.
- ECO-UV inks are engineered for use on all applications — you don’t need to purchase multiple ink sets for different media use.
- Create colours that pop on dark or clear substrates with White ink that acts as a spot colour.
- Optional Primer ink enables you to prep the surface of materials like acrylic and plastic for full-colour customisation.*
- An Automated Ink Circulation System stops ink pigments from settling in the ink lines for even consistency.
- Mist Filters catch the surplus ink that mists off the edges of your media to avoid over spray and keep ink from falling on internal components.
* For optimum primer results, it’s highly recommended that users test for adhesion to media items before final production
A Choice of Productivity and Printing Areas
The LEF2 lineup includes three models with different work sizes and printing speeds. Choose the one that best suits your work volume and the size of the material you wish to print.
High Reliability and Safety
The LEF2 series adopts a new cleaning system for improved operation and reliability. A Head Refresh feature removes any ink remaining on the print heads and cleans the print head surface to maintain the health of your printer.
Should a print head clog, a new Nozzle Mask function allows you to continue printing while using the remaining part of the print head. An airtight cover protects operators from UV light and prevents dust from settling onto the surface of materials while printing. The LEF2 series UV printers require no special electrical requirements, are simple to operate and run safe, clean and cool.
Included VersaWorks 6
The latest edition features powerful new 64-bit processing and RIP capabilities, plus the easy cropping, tiling, nesting, and other advantages of the world’s most popular RIP software.
Intelligent Test Printing
Save time and materials by altering the test print position— test print on the same material multiple times.
|Roland DG Intelligent Pass Control
Controls dot placement between each pass for faster throughput and excellent image quality in all print modes.
|LED Pointer Set-Up
The built-in LED alignment system sets the origin point when printing on different media – use it as a two-point reference to detect flat substrates or as a centre origin point of reference on curved or odd-shaped items.
You’ll receive an e-mail or smart phone alert when ink is low or when a job is complete for an unattended, worry-free operation.
Ideal for efficiently and accurately securing thin materials and delicate media, the LEF2-300 and LEF2-300D feature a built-in vacuum table for stable printing and high-quality results. An optional vacuum table is also available for the LEF2-200.

This device is capable of printing on a wide variety of substrates. However, the print quality or the ink adhesion may vary according to the substrate used and it is strongly recommended to test the substrate for compatibility to ensure optimal print results.
Vaporized components may slightly irritate the eyes, nose and/or throat during and following printing with this product. If continuously printing in a closed space, the density of volatile compositions will accumulate and may irritate the eyes, nose and /or throat.
