Convenient Height Adjustor
With 3D items placed on the flat table, once the automatic height adjusting function has been selected, the LEF-12i 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.
The Sealed Cover Construction Protects the Material against Admission of Dust During Printing
The LEF-12i includes a safety hood to protect the operator from UV light during operation and a screen to prevent dust falling on the surface of materials whilst printing. Equipped with long-life LED UV-curing lamp, the LEF-12i requires no warm-up time, making it efficient to use and cool to touch. This LED curing technology means it can be used in conjunction with delicate materials which, traditionally, have been difficult to dry efficiently.
Ink Mist Absorbing Function
The LEF-12i features an ink mist adsorbing system by which air-borne ink mist inside the printer is collected for removal. The system works by employing two fans installed around the print-head and flat table, that blow any ink mist into an adsorbing filter. This system is valuable to maintain consistent printing operation.
Compact Construction and Low Energy Requirement
The desk-top construction of the unit allows it to be installed in restricted spaces in the workplace. The LEF-12i operate on standard household power supplies, and do not require special electrical installations.
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’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.
An Optional Deodorizing Unit to Create a Comfortable Work Environment
An optional deodorizing unit is available for the LEF-12i. It contains an activated carbon filter which effectively removes the odor and volatile substances that occur during printing. This unit can be installed easily underneath the LEF-12i.
Roland VersaWorks RIP Software
The Roland's true Adobe® PostScript® 3™ RIP is easy to use and incorporates the latest CPSI engine for exceptional production output. Features include estimation of ink usage and print time for each job, control of up to four Roland devices, and accurate color matching using the Roland Color System Library.
Roland OnSupport Messaging System Included for Remote Production Management
The LEF-12i 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.
