Robust Flatbed Table with Powerful Vacuum and Precision Movement

The LEJ-640FT boasts a robust, all-steel frame designed to reduce vibration while supporting materials of up to 220 pounds. The 64" x 98" bed handles popular 4' x 8' sheets and unique substrates up to 6" thick. Pin guides ensure precise registration for 2-sided prints or for repeated jobs. A zoned vacuum bed provides 175 CFM suction to easily handle board products like Sintra™, Coroplast™ and styrene, as well as heavier unique materials in both small and large sizes. Dual-gear step motors and rack and pinion drive system ensure accurate printing.

Optimized Print Quality and Performance

The LEJ-640FT delivers a maximum print speed of 133 sqft/hr in High Speed CMYK mode. Like all VersaUV series printers, it can produce 1440 x 1440 dpi press proofs with flawlessly smooth gradations, super fine details and sharp text on actual substrates used for production.

EZ Handheld Controller

The LEJ-640FT includes a convenient and easy-to-use handheld controller to operate the unit and monitor the printer status. This allows the operator to keep the controller handy whether you are working in the front or the back of the printer.

Unsurpassed Media Compatibility

The combination of advanced ECO-UV inks with low-heat, state-of-the-art UV-LED lamps enables VersaUV flatbed printers to print on virtually any substrate, delivering an unprecedented range of media compatibility and print quality. ECO-UV ink adheres to a wide range of treated and untreated substrates, including foam boards, Sintra, acrylic, plywood, MDF and much more, with exceptional image quality. With up to 6 inches of media clearance and 220 lb. weight handling, printing on previously too thick or heavy materials is now a reality.

Advanced ECO-UV Inks

Roland's UV flatbed printers, including the VersaUV LEJ-640FT, use ECO-UV inks available in CMYK, White and Clear. Instant-drying and flexible, ECO-UV inks produce prints that can be stretched and applied around curved surfaces and edges without cracking. With long-lasting, highly energy-efficient UV LED lamps, our state-of-the-art UV LED curing system instantly cures ink to substrates. For added flexibility, upgrade to ECO-UV S – which expands up to 200 percent, allowing graphics to wrap uneven shapes, corners, curved surfaces, and more. Roland's unique automated Ink Circulation System circulates the white ink in the LEJ-640FT every eight hours to prevent the settling of pigments in the lines. In addition, this system controls the discharge of white ink, reducing ink waste and eliminating manual maintenance.

Flexible Ink Configuration Options for Unmatched Versatility

All VersaUV models support three ink configurations selectable at installation.
  • CMYK + White + Clear Coat can be used for a wide range of applications, including prints with spot varnish, POP, window graphics, exhibit displays and unique textured graphics. White ink is ideal for producing rich, dense color graphics on clear and dark substrates. Clear Coat can be used as a spot gloss or matte highlights, to coat the entire image for a high-gloss finish, or overprinted for simulating embossing and other three-dimensional textures.
  • Ideal for applications that require high opacity white, the CMYK + dual White mode achieves opacities up to 1.5 times higher than the single white configuration.
  • The CMYK + dual Clear mode can build up three-dimensional textures twice as fast as the normal ink mode and can produce more dramatic effects with larger reliefs

State of the Art Curing System for Matte and Gloss Finishes

The VersaUV's ability to reposition its twin UV-LED lamps automatically increases productivity in high quality modes and allows simulation of matte and gloss varnishing effects.

Innovative Automated Ink Circulation System

The automated Ink Circulation System circulates the white ink in the LEJ-640FT every eight hours to prevent the settling of pigments in the lines. In addition, this system controls the discharge of white ink and minimizes waste by monitoring the white ink usage and the types of jobs that are printed.

Note that, due to the nature of white ink, the white ink cartridge still needs to be shaken prior to use each day as the ink in the cartridge is not circulated by this system.

Roland Intelligent Pass Control™ Technology

This patent-pending system precisely controls dot placement between passes, allowing the VersaUV LEJ-640FT to produce smooth gradations and exceptional solid colors, while achieving faster throughput and optimal image quality in all print modes, including higher speeds.

Enhanced Media Presets

The VersaUV series includes a wizard-based media settings menu that walks the user through all the necessary adjustments to ensure optimal print quality. These adjustments can be saved as a Media Preset that can be quickly reloaded when the same media is run. When invoked, it reconfigures all printing parameters with the pre-calibrated values, saving time and money by minimizing the chances of user error. Up to eight Media Presets can be saved and named accordingly for easy identification.

Designed for the Environment and Safety

The energy-efficient LEJ-640FT automatically enters a low-power mode when it is not used for an extended period of time. This design considerably reduces the emission of greenhouse gases. And because LED lamps do not require any warm up time, saving energy does not reduce your productivity.

The LEJ-640FT is ventilation-ready, featuring a built-in connector for an air filtration system. In addition, the LEJ-640 uses a light source that is completely ozone free and emits light in the range called Near-UV of the UV spectrum, making it a safe alternative to conventional UV lamps.
