Impressive Media Compatibility
The LV series is compatible with an extensive range of materials, from plastics to wood, leather, paper, cork and much more. With two models available featuring different work sizes, you can choose the model that best suits the thickness and size of the materials you want to work with.




Precision Cutting and Engraving

The LV series uses a non-contact CO2 laser to engrave complex shapes and text with crisp edges at high speed. Unlike conventional computerised engravers, cut surfaces have a smooth, clean finish without burrs, thus eliminating the need for any final touch-up work. With no engraving cutters to break or wear out, the laser always maintains a beautiful finish with no degradation in quality. The LV-290 is equipped with a CCD camera that supports positioning the material to accurately contour cut UV-printed graphics.

The LV series is Class 1-compliant under the “IEC60825-1” international standard for laser devices. The enclosed design prevents laser light from bleeding outside. If the cover is opened during processing, the safety interlock mechanism automatically halts laser activation. LED lighting illuminates the work area, allowing you to visually check whether processing is being performed safely and properly.

Scenario

Roland BT-12

Dave is starting a T-Shirt printing business and will be operating the equipment himself. Here is an example of the return on the initial investment for his business.

Roland BT-12


Design
CMYK - A4 Size (204mm x 291mm)

Ink Costs
BT-12 Black Pigment Ink 140ml: £94.99+vat

BT-12 CMY Pigment Inks 100ml: £74.99(+vat) each
Average Ink Costs per A4 Print: £0.23


Materials
Average cost price of an adult 100% Cotton T-Shirt: £1.85(+vat)

Printing Specs
Printing on standard quality mode, the BT-12 takes 5 minutes 40 seconds to produce a photo quality image, plus 4 minutes of pressing time to give excellent washability of the graphic.



Summary
Dave was able to produce a high quality full colour A4 T-shirt for only £2.11+vat in less than 10 minutes.
He sells his T-Shirts at £12.50 each, generating a NET profit of £8.34 Per shirt.
If Dave produces just 5 T-Shirts per day then he would see a return on the BT-12 investment in just 3.1 months.
