Roland DG presents ultimate quality & versatility in UV printing with VersaUV S-Series at FESPA

Roland DG will debut VersaUV S-Series range of flatbed and belt UV-LED printers at upcoming FESPA. Comprising seven models, the VersaUV S-Series is available in a range of configurations and sizes to suit production environments and requirements of all types. This range of flatbeds and belts prints graphics, photographic images, textures and embossed effects onto any substrate or object, rigid or flexible, up to 200 mm in height.

“The VersaUV S-Series represents true choice and flexibility to fit into any workflow – ideal as a next step for existing users of benchtop UV printers, businesses with ambition looking to enter the world of UV printing or those with more ‘industrial’ scale requirements. Whether users are looking for a robust flatbed to direct print onto rigid substrates and objects, or the option to print flexible, roll-to-roll or rigid materials and items with a belt system, the versatility of configurations means that there is a new VersaUV S-Series for everyone and the range of exciting applications is really only limited by the user’s imagination,” Paul Willems, head of business development and product management EMEA for Roland DG explains.

The VersaUV S-Series runs Roland ECO-UV ink which is instantly cured with low- temperature UV lamps for direct print onto almost any substrate or object either rigid or flexible, from leather and canvas to wood, plastic, glass, metals, acrylic, banner, vinyl, paper and more. White ink adds highlights or a base layer for dark colours and Gloss creates high-shine or matt finishes. Gloss layers can also produce textured effects, braille or specialist markings for industrial applications – boosting value even further with unique and tactile finishes.

At FESPA, the Roland team will be running live demonstrations of the flatbed and belt models to highlight the full capabilities of the solution and showcase the innovative new Object Profiling Functionality (OPF). This enhancement enables the scanning and printing of objects of different heights within the same print run, offering users an even greater level of versatility.

Users also have a choice of RIP software; Roland VersaWorks Dual or Roland PrintStudio. Roland VersaWorks Dual is included as standard as part of the printer package.

For FESPA visitors with more modest production requirements, the Roland booth will also feature the VersaUV LEF-300 and LEF-200 UV-LED flatbed printers, plus its award-winning TrueVIS eco-solvent wide- format printer/cutter range, dye-sublimation print technology and a range of small print, cut and personalisation devices.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
