ASG had been running a Roland VersaUV LEC-330 UV printer/cutter for 8 years. This was installed at its Slough site.
ASG Spark provides services and solutions for major brands in the fields of home entertainment, gaming, beauty, home electronics, wines and spirits and more. The team is already completing retail work for Christmas 2019, using the new Roland VersaUV LEC-330S-B150 to create fully detailed scale models of large POS displays.
In February 2018, the design team upgraded to a new Roland VersaUV LEC-330S-B150, from the S-Series. This next-generation UV-LED belt printer, installed at ASG Spark with a table, can print CMYK, white and gloss onto virtually any substrate or object – rigid, roll-to-roll and flexible – up to 200mm in height and 100kg/sqm in weight.
"…[A]fter the LEC was installed we found its detail and quality was as good as production and perfect for packaging mock-ups,” said Karl Ballard, senior prepress & systems technician. “We can produce many special effects with dimensional coating.
“On the new LEC-330S-B150 we can print onto any substrate we like, from laminated metallic boards to golf balls,” he added. “We can also print directly onto boxes, changing our workflow, and it allows us to print lots of special effects with higher built-up textures and exact registration.”
