Automated Ink Circulation System – The LEF-12i offers consistently brilliant results with controlled ink circulation that generates smooth ink consistency and density. The LEF-12i has an Automated Ink Circulation System for the white ink channel that helps to maintain a consistent white point and opacity, even on long print runs. Controlled ink circulation ensures that ink pigments can’t settle in the ink lines, resulting in smooth ink consistency and density.
Energy Efficient UV Lamps – The LEF-12i feature energy-saving LED lamps that last up to ten times longer than conventional UV lamps. These can be instantly switched on and off for a true on-demand operation that doesn’t require a long warm-up time. In addition, the LEF has an automatic low-power mode that is switched on when not used after an extended period.
Mist Filters for Clean and Clear Printing – To ensure optimum print quality when printing around curves, mist filters have been added to the LEF-12i to collect the residual ink-mist when printing off the edge or curve of an item. This reduces overspray and stops ink from settling on internal parts. Filters are designed to be easily replaceable by the end user.

Upgraded firmware eliminates unnecessary cleanings during production, while also optimizing table movement during setup and printing, improving production.

Roland LEF-12i UV Printer Applications
With the ability to print CMYK, White and Gloss inks directly around the curves and contours of three-dimensional objects, the LEF-12i is ideally suited for personalizing pens, golf balls, key chains and other promotional items. Variable data printing allows you to individualize each item with names, photos and other custom design elements.
Low-heat LED curing systems make the LEF-12i ideal for printing on sensitive electronic devices, including tablets and smartphones. High-opacity White ink produces bright, crisp white text and graphics, and can also be printed as an undercoat to enhance full-color graphics on clear acrylics and darker plastics.
With the LEF-12i, you can print directly on gift items ranging from jewelry and accessories to photo frames, wedding favors, dishware and even fabric items such as leather wallets and purses. Add interesting patterns and textures to your designs with layers of Gloss ink in matte or gloss.
The LEF-12i is the perfect additions to awards and recognition businesses, allowing these shops to add full-color graphics to engraved items for high-impact results. White ink allows you to print on clear acrylic awards as well as dark-colored plaques. Gloss ink adds elegant embossing and varnishing effects for a premium presentation.
ADA compliant signage represents a major growth opportunity and profit center for sign and graphic businesses. With the introduction of UV ink and UV printer technology, ADA compliant signage can be produced quicker and more efficiently with a multi-layering ink process that creates raised text and images.
Consumer and Industrial Products
For product designers, entrepreneurs and marketing professionals, the LEF-12i customizes a wide variety of products from toys and sports items to cosmetic cases and control panels. Variable data printing allows you to mark each product or part with individual serial and lot numbers.
