17-Jan-2017 Roland DG Strengthens VersaUV Line Up with New LEF-200 Benchtop UV Printer

Sydney, Australia, January 17, 2017 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers worldwide, today announced the addition of the VersaUV LEF-200 to its lineup of benchtop UV printers. Delivering advanced media compatibility and workflow efficiency, the LEF-200 also features a new on-board Primer ink option.

According to Greg Stone, Product and Marketing Manager of Roland DG Australia, the LEF-200 was developed to offer outstanding print quality, greater media compatibility, and ease of use for the personalisation and custom printing markets, which are characterised by small-lot production of numerous products. At 20 inches wide, the LEF-200 prints high-quality full-colour, White, Clear and Primer inks on a wide variety of materials including three-dimensional items up to 100mm thick. To accommodate an expanded range of profitable applications, the LEF-200 features a new on-board Primer ink option for priming objects quickly and conveniently. The new Roland VersaWorks Dual RIP software simplifies the process of producing graphics with special effects.



“With the LEF-200,” Stone said, “you can print rich colour directly onto a wide range of personalised consumer products and promotional items such as smartphone cases, pens, awards, giftware, plates and more.” The new Primer ink option allows users to prep an object for customisation before printing a full-colour graphic. “This makes adding graphics to glass, plastics and other challenging media* so much more clean and efficient,” he said. The Primer ink is also compatible with the LEF-300.

The LEF-200 incorporates Roland DG’s proprietary CYMK, White and Clear ECO-UV inks for premium quality printing. Clear ink can be printed for spot gloss or matte finishes, as well as unique embossing effects. White ink can be printed as a spot colour or as a flood behind CMYK on dark backgrounds or clear materials. To meet individual business requirements, users can choose from three ink configurations: CMYK+White+Primer, CMYK+White+Clear, and CMYK+White+White.

“We also added usability enhancements to the LEF-200 for greater efficiency.” Stone added. Roland VersaWorks Dual enables users to work not only with PostScript® files, but also allows for native processing of PDF files to ensure transparency effects are processed accurately. In addition, white or clear ink data can be generated easily in the RIP, ideal for use in producing transparent personalised accessories with special effects.

According to Stone, “With the growing desire for personalisation that reflects individual preferences and lifestyles, the market for on-demand printing onto various articles is expected to expand still further in the future. In recent years, we have seen an increasing number of businesses using our VersaUV LEF printers to provide custom printing of smartphone cases and accessories. With the LEF-200’s greater versatility for applications and usability, we continue to provide the best solutions to support custom print services providers both online and offline.”

*It is strongly recommended to test the substrate for compatibility to ensure optimal print results as print quality or ink adhesion may vary depending on the substrate used.

07-Dec-2016 Roland DG to Take Imagination on the Road

Sydney, Australia, December 6, 2016 – Roland DG Australia, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and 3D devices, today announced the launch of its brand new Mobile Imagination Centre, a custom-built vehicle that takes the Creative Centre and RolandClinic concepts on the road.


As a new way for Roland DG to reach and engage with regional customers across the country, the Mobile Imagination Centre (or MIC) will have the latest technology and applications on display, and Roland experts on hand to provide support, to educate, and to inspire.

“We’ve always wanted to get out to our non-metropolitan customers on a more regular basis,” said Greg Stone, Roland DG Australia Product and Marketing Manager. “To give them one-on-one support or to show them ways that they can increase the variety and quality of their output to make the most of their Roland devices. The MIC offers a great way for us to do this. If they can’t come to us, we’ll go to them.”

The MIC will be making its way around the country throughout 2017 and 2018, stopping at regional locations for the day. Along with a display of the latest Roland devices and applications, support will be given through RolandClinic and a Virtual Reality headset will allow visitors to take a virtual tour of Roland DG Creative Centres from around the world, as well as the Roland DG factory in Hamamatsu, Japan to see the new TrueVIS VG-640 being manufactured. Visitors can also enter the “With Roland” competition by bringing along samples, photos or videos of inspiring work they have created with their Roland equipment.

The first stop for the MIC will be in Albury on Monday, 13th February, followed by Dubbo on 15th February, and Bathurst on 16th February. Subsequent locations will be uploaded to our dedicated MIC website, that will include an events calendar, blog posts, photos, competition results, and more.

08-Nov-2016 Simplicity is Priceless with Roland Rental Platinum

Sydney, Australia, November 8, 2016 – Roland DG Australia, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and 3D devices, is pleased to announce the launch of Roland Rental Platinum, a premium package of Roland hardware, genuine Roland inks, extended warranty, servicing and training, all wrapped up in one simple monthly payment.


Expanding upon Roland Rental, the Company’s industry-leading finance program established in 2007, Roland Rental Platinum delivers simplicity and peace of mind to its customers. The success of Roland Rental, with its 95% approval rating and quick finance approval turnaround times, prompted Roland DG, in conjunction with our finance partner, Ecolease, to develop a program with added benefits and savings bundled in.

Marian Taggart-Holland, Director of Ecolease, explains the reasoning behind the development of Roland Rental Platinum: “One thing we notice pretty quickly when speaking with Roland customers is that they are time poor. Many run their own businesses so they spend a substantial amount of time doing day-to-day administration tasks such as ordering inks and processing invoices.”

Roland Rental Platinum offers a great solution for this. “The program helps provide peace of mind by taking away some of the hassle to owning and running Roland equipment and hardware” explains Marian. “That way, Roland customers can get back to doing what they do best: managing and growing their business”.

With no up-front capital investment, interest on hardware only, tax deductable payments, cost savings of up to $10,000 on the life of the product (based on a 5 year agreement), and a simple approval criteria through Ecolease, the benefits of the program quickly add up.

To find out more about Roland Rental Platinum and the benefits it can deliver to your business, visit the web page or contact Roland DG on 1800 500 119.
