CAMM-1 GR Series Cutters

The Proof is in Your Hands

Roland pioneered the development of integrated print/cut technology for packaging prototypes and short run label production. We were the first to offer an LED curing UV inkjet printer/cutter equipped with CMYK+White inks as well as clear coat for simulating spot varnishes and embossing effects. Roland LED curing technology offers the widest range of media compatibility and supports heat sensitive media such as shrink films. We were also the first to introduce both white and metallic inks for mild solvent printers.

Packaging Prototypes

Packaging Prototypes

Roland’s integrated printing and cutting technology is revolutionising the label, decal, membrane switch panel and packaging industries. Roland offers several inkjets which combine digital die cutting with precision printing including the popular VersaCAMM series eco-solvent printer/cutters, the high-performance SOLJET Pro III XC-540 eco-solvent printer/cutter, and the remarkable VersaUV LEC-330, the world’s first UV inkjet printer/cutter. Roland printer/cutters are renowned for offering unmatched productivity and overall performance. Once these devices finish printing, they automatically contour cut designs with precision accuracy for a broad range of complex graphics.

PackagingCustom Labels and Decals

Imagine it. Print it. Across a vast array of substrates, the Roland VersaUV LEC-330 prints CMYK plus White plus Clear Coat and automatically contour cuts for unmatched versatility. It’s ideal for proofs, label and packaging prototypes, membrane switch panels and short-run or personalized production. Eco-UV Clear Coat adds remarkably rich special effects ranging from high gloss finishes for area highlights to custom-textured effects such as faux leather, crocodile skin and even Braille. Integrated contour cutting automatically produces custom graphics of virtually any size and shape.
