Media up to 100 mm thick can be loaded, and a vacuum table holds thin and tricky-to-handle media firmly in place2.

Powerful VersaWorks 6 RIP Software Included
With powerful new 64-bit processing and RIP capabilities, plus cropping, tiling, nesting and other tools, the world’s most powerful RIP software, VersaWorks 6, makes production even simpler and maximises the capabilities of your print device.
Icon-based interface with drag-and-drop functionality facilitates ease of use.
Supports data rotation and a partial print function that maintains position information.
Special Color Plate Generation allows you to auto-generate White, Gloss and Primer layers, directly in the RIP.
Spot embossing function speeds up printing of 3D embossed effects (supported only for the CMYKGlGlWh ink configuration on the LEF2-300).
Color-Matching Function allows easy colour matching for same printer models and ink types. Consistent colour matching is possible even when sharing print jobs with multiple printer units4.
Advanced RIP features include new print queue options, up to 40 job presets, UV post cure within the RIP and new 16-pass print mode (standard 720x720 dpi).
UV customisation with more ease and efficiency
The VersaUV LEF2 series is fully loaded with advanced features to simplify operation and make printing even faster. Completely enclosed when printing, it runs clean, cool with energy-efficient UV-LED lamps and low maintenance head technology. The LEF2 offers many new functions to streamline your print process.
The LEF2 series uses LED lamps for UV curing that last up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps and can be instantly switched on or off, for true on-demand production without the typical warm-up time.
In addition, the LEF2 automatically enters a low-power mode when not in use for an extended period.
High Reliability and Safety
Remove any ink remaining on your printheads with the Head Refresher feature which cleans the printhead surface to maintain machine health and ink cost-efficiency.
Minimise downtime in the unlikely event of a printhead clogging - the new Nozzle Mask function allows you to continue printing while using half of the printhead.
The airtight cover protects operators from UV light and prevents dust from settling onto the surface of materials while printing.
Automatic Media Height system
The Automatic Media Height setting detects the height of the material quickly, while optimised printing table movements eliminate the move-down operation of the table when opening the cover and allow continuous operation when printing multiple items consecutively.
The LEF2 is great for printing directly onto unusually shaped items and the special positioning jig helps you align them easily on the print table.
|Intelligent test printing
Save time and materials by altering the test print position – test print on the same material multiple times.
|Plug and Print
LEF2 series UV printers simply plug in to a standard electrical outlet. Using a fraction of the power that other flatbed printers demand, an LEF2 offers significant savings on electrical costs per year.
LED Alignment system
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. It’s a handy feature to speed up your print job.
Roland Intelligent Pass Control
Controls dot placement between each pass for faster throughput and excellent image quality in all print modes.
Print from anywhere – the built-in Ethernet connection allows you to connect your LEF2 to your existing network.
Ideal for efficiently and accurately securing thin materials and delicate media, the LEF2-300 features a built-in vacuum table for stable printing and high-quality results. An optional vacuum table is also available for the LEF2-200.
