Roland UV-Led Versauv LEC-330 now supported by GMG Color Management for perfect mockup creation
Working together, the Roland VersaUV LEC-330 and GMG color management offer players in the packaging and labeling market - including printers, design agencies, advertising agencies, repro houses, and brand owners - groundbreaking solutions for prototyping, mockup and small batch production of packaging and labeling.
The VersaUV LEC-330 supports a wide variety of substrates including paper, paper compounds, transparent films, aluminum foils, PE and PET foils, plastic, polycarbonate and other rigid substrates which are used for offset, flexography, rotogravure and screen print production. Highopacity ECO-UV White ink is ideal for transparent media, allowing users to print brilliant colors on dark and transparent substrates. With the ECO-UV Clear ink, users can simulate gloss and matte finishes, embossed effects, and spot varnishing.
GMG color management, providing unrivaled quality and repeatability, enables the VersaUV LEC-330 to achieve a visual match, locally and at remote locations, with the main print processes such as flexography, offset and gravure printing - even for spot colors. It ensures the highest repeatability by calibrating target printers within tight tolerances. Furthermore, the simulation of cardboard, paper structure and register variations is supported to achieve coloraccurate mockups with the VersaUV LEC-330.
Compared with traditional systems for mockup creation in the packaging and label market, the Roland/GMG solution produces highly coloraccurate mockups at a fraction of current costs.

About the GMG solutions: Based on the 4-D colortransformation engine, the proofing solution GMG ColorProof provides the most accurate way of calibrating digital inkjet proofing devices to produce contract color proofs precisely matched to the printing process. GMG DotProof® enables users to generate contract quality halftone proofs, using the original bitmap data of the output RIP. GMG FlexoProof is specifically tailored to the needs of the packaging industry, simulating any kind of substrate structures and spot colors in the halftone proof. GMG ProofControl guarantees reliable and complete quality control of digital color proofs based on a defined standard. GMG ProofMedia is a range of proofingspecific substrates manufactured to strict tolerances specifically for color critical applications. GMG ColorServer, with automatic hotfolder technology and based on the Adobe® PDF Library, provides fully automatic color conversions for all printing processes - CMYKto-CMYK, RGBto-CMYK and RGBto-RGB. The GMG SmartProfiler wizard allows the profiling and calibration of different output devices, such as digital presses or large format systems, easily and quickly. GMG InkOptimizer automatically reduces chromatic colors, thus providing cost savings by reducing unnecessary ink usage, along with better print stability on press. GMG FlowConnect enables the complete integration of the color management solutions GMG ColorServer and GMG InkOptimizer into current workflow systems. GMG PrintControl is an easytouse solution for standardizing printing presses and effective process control in the pressroom.
