Roland DG launches SC-RD rotary axis for cylindrical printing

Roland DG has boosted the versatility of the VersaUV LEF and LEF2 Series benchtop printers with a clever accessory that makes it possible to print directly on and around the entire surface of cylindrical objects.

The SC-RD rotary axis is quick and simple to install, which means printers can immediately start developing new revenue opportunities in the personalised print market.

The SC-RD rotary axis complements the incredible printing power of VersaUV LEF-20, LEF-200, LEF2-200, SF-200, LEF-300 and LEF2-300 UV-LED benchtop printers. Roland’s new device enables these machines to extend their renowned versatility to print directly to the whole surface of cylindrical items. Matched with Roland’s durable, high-adhesion UV inks, the SC-RD opens up unlimited opportunities for personalising items from bottles, cans and candles, to cosmetics and packaging.

Easy installation and simple integration with VersaWorks 6

VersaWorks 6, Roland’s latest and most powerful RIP software, integrates easily with the SC-RD, which means no need to spend time on changing the workflow and the standard rotary mode function makes it easy for you to switch between modes. The accessory can be easily assembled and installed in the VersaUV by the end-user, so it’s ready to use whenever it’s required. There are no printer parts to remove or cables to connect – the SC-RD is powered by the VersaUV itself.

Develop a fully rounded business and explore new markets

The SC-RD is an affordable way to offer new applications and access new markets. As an addition to an existing VersaUV workflow, or an integral part of a new investment, the rotary axis can help print businesses expand. It’s ideal for packaging – including personalised items, mock-ups and short runs – plus cosmetics and beauty, home décor, food and drink, gifts and promotional products, and industrial products such as prototypes.

“The SC-RD is truly the easiest way to expand the possibilities of a UV printer, thanks to its simple software integration and fast installation,” says Paul Willems, Director of Business Development and Product Management, Roland DG EMEA. “This new accessory builds on the already fantastic material versatility and ease of use of the VersaUV LEF and LEF2, to help print businesses access new markets and customers.”

The SC-RD rotary axis is available to customers in the EMEA region.
