Roland DGA Corporation has announced that the Roland Desktop VersaUV LEF-12 UV-LED Printer won a Science and Technology Advancement Award at the 21st Shanghai International Ad & Sign Technology & Equipment Exhibition held July 10-13 in Shanghai, China.
The prestigious award recognizing the LEF 12’s “superb, cutting-edge technology,” was presented to Roland DGA’s parent company, Roland DG Corporation, at the major sign-related event, which attracts more than 100,000 visitors from across the globe annually. Roland’s LEF-12 is a flatbed UV-LED inkjet printer that allows users to print directly on a wide variety of solid materials up to 3.96 inches thick. Since its launch in June 2011, this advanced device has come to be used widely throughout the world, particularly for the personalization of gifts and the creation of signs, awards and advertising specialties featuring printed photos and original designs, including smart phone cases, promotional items and more. Incorporating Roland’s award-winning technology, the LEF prints CMYK, plus white ink and clear gloss to produce stunning, customized graphics with unrivaled image quality. The LEF-12 makes it easy to create unique special effects, such as matte and high gloss finishes for area highlights or floods, textured faux leather, crocodile skin and Braille, for added-value results on demand.
“Winning this coveted award is a great honor and it distinguishes Roland’s LEF-12 as one of the most advanced and innovative printers on the market today,” said Rick Scrimger, president of Roland DGA Corporation. “The development of a product like the LEF-12 is representative of Roland’s ongoing commitment to the advancement of digital printing technology and equipment.”
