“Our VersaUV LEC2 S-Series printers will appeal to sign makers, industrial printers and packaging experts looking for expanded profit opportunities, reduced turnaround times, and cost savings,” said Greg Stone, Roland DG Australia’s product and marketing manager.
“The versatility of configurations enables a range of exciting applications for increased profit margins and new business opportunities – both are critical to success in today’s competitive print market.”
In addition to the two width options, there are four different bed sizes to choose from.
All LEC2 S-Series printers have up to 200mm of height clearance and are sturdy enough to support up to 100kg. “This makes the LEC2 S-Series unbeatable for a wide range of range of applications, including product personalisation, package prototyping and short runs, tradeshow and retail signage, POP displays, interior décor, and printing onto panels, sheets, tables and heavy boards,” Roland DG said.
“Each LEC2 S-Series model is built to take full advantage of Roland DG’s specially formulated, GREENGUARD Gold certified, wide gamut ECO-UV inks.
"Users can choose from eight different ink configurations to suit their specific quality, media and finishing needs, including dual CMYK for increased productivity, or CMYK with optional Red and Orange for increased colour-matching accuracy, and White, Gloss or Primer for stunning dimensional and textural effects and improved adhesion and media compatibility."

“Our new Texart XT-640S direct-to-garment printer fulfils a truly unique market niche,” says Stone. “This versatile, easy-to-use machine not only lets users print directly on a wide variety of apparel and accessory items, it also allows screen print businesses and other types of operations to accept a broader range of jobs. They can print small batches quickly with low operational costs, but they also have the continuous printing capabilities to accommodate larger production runs. Regardless of the type of job, users can depend on the XT-640S to deliver high quality output for their customers.”

The XT-640S direct-to-garment printer is incredibly easy to use – it’s a device that screen printing shops and other print providers can add to their current production workflow with minimal operator training.
