Expedite your workflow with a host of productivity features
To accommodate greater quantities and larger-sized items, the LEF-300’s printing area has been expanded to 770 mm wide by 330 mm long. With four print heads and two UV-LED lamps, one of which moves, the LEF-300 enables bidirectional printing approximately 1.6 times* faster than previous models. White and clear (gloss) ink are now jetted through two rows of nozzles each for faster printing, increased density and opacity and faster build-up of multiple layers for three-dimensional textures. A new draft print mode improves overall efficiency for users in need of quick prototype prints.

Achieve high-quality printing on a wide range of materials
Able to accommodate items up to 100 mm in height, the LEF-300 enables printing on a wide variety of substrates such as PET, ABS, and polycarbonate, and soft materials such as TPU and leather, as well as three-dimensional items, including pens, smartphone cases, signs, personalised awards, giftware, promotional items and laptop covers. A vacuum table makes it easy to hold thin materials in place. The possibilities are virtually endless.
Generic mode: Ideal for printing fine detail on flat surfaces.
Distance mode: More suitable to print on objects where the surface is not level.
Advanced ECO-UV inks produce outstanding results
Designed for flexibility, ECO-UV inks image beautifully and conform around the most complex corners and curves for decoration of a wide variety of items from stunning gifts and novelty items to industrial parts and product prototyping. The LEF-300 comes equipped with VersaUV's proprietary CYMK, White and Clear (gloss) ECO-UV inks for premium quality prints. By printing a base layer of high-density white ink, even greater brilliance can be achieved when using clear or dark-coloured materials. Clear ink produces gloss and matte finishes. Multiple layers of clear ink can be applied to create simulated embossing and three-dimensional textures, and the included VersaWorks Dual RIP software comes with 72 ready-to-use texture patterns.
Built to meet the demands of high volume operations
In order to maintain accurate high-quality printing even during long production runs, the LEF-300 incorporates precision parts that are not susceptible to changes in temperature or humidity. To meet the needs of production site customers, the LEF-300 includes an input/output system that supports external devices such as warning lights and custom production automation systems.
Full cover ensures safety and print quality
The LEF-300 cover provides excellent airtight enclosure to prevent dust from entering the print area, while keeping the UV-LED light contained. Ink cartridges are located on the side of the device to allow replacement during operation without having to open the cover.
Convenient height adjustor
With 3D items placed on the flat table, once the automatic height adjusting function has been selected, the LEF-300 starts to adjust the position by moving the flat table back and forth until its surface reaches the height most suitable for operation. This function also helps to maintain the production of quality prints due to automatic adjustment of the distance between the print-head and the material surface.
Ink mist absorbing function
The LEF-300 features an ink mist adsorbing system by which air-borne ink mist inside the printer is collected for removal. The system works by employing a fan installed around the print-head, that blow any ink mist into an adsorbing filter. This system is valuable to maintain 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 eliminating virtually any signs of banding. This patent-pending system ensures that graphics look great when viewed indoors or outdoors, up close and at a distance.
Automated ink circulation system for consistent long-term image quality
The VersaUV series comes with Roland DG's unique, automated ink circulation system that prevents the pigment in white ink from settling. This system automatically reduces waste of white ink, lowers running costs, produces exceptional image quality, and ensures consistent white density throughout the longest production runs.
Roland VersaWorks Dual advanced intuitive RIP software included
Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software includes all the advanced and ease-of-use features of VersaWorks, and now supports both PostScript and PDF files for improved file processing and automatic creation of white and clear ink layers. In addition, features like offset, positioning, rotation and registration of ink layers can be handled directly in the RIP without the need to return to design software.
Within VersaWorks Dual users can now automatically generate White and Gloss ink data, making it simplier than ever to create amazing high value effects. Add these special colours as an overlay or underlay to the print area, outside the print area, or across the entire image with the ability to adjust density as required.
Added 90 and 270 degree rotation options with VersaWorks Dual also maximise work area when printing multiple items, improving workflow and allowing easy integration with customised jigs.
Roland OnSupport messaging system included for remote production management
The LEF-300 features Roland OnSupport, an online customer support system allowing users to remotely track the status of the printer’s activities. The system sends e-mails to users notifying them of important information such as when a job is completed and when ink is running low. With Roland OnSupport, users can also quickly download firmware updates and important product information by accessing an exclusive website with just one mouse click.
Optional Air Filtration Unit
Custom built for the LEF series, an optional air filtration system is available from Roland. While ensuring proper ventilation, this unit also doubles as a stand and storage unit for jigs, fixtures and supplies. When connected to the stand, the Roland air filtration system virtually eliminates odor. The VersaUV LEF is ventilation-ready, featuring a built-in connector for the Roland unit or other standard air filtration systems.
