What is UV printer and its function
UV printer is an abbreviation for ultraviolet (UV), which is a digital inkjet printer with ultraviolet cold - curing technology .
UV printer is a new type of printing equipment which has only appeared in recent years. The UV printing technology is mainly used on the UV board printer before, the printing material is mainly board material .At that time, the UV printer was a upmarket presence, with a price of between 100,000 and 200,000 USD.With the mature of UV cold curing technology and the emergence of Toshiba industrial printing head, the UV printer has become more and more popular,and its price is lower and lower day after day.
Since then, the UV printer has attracted the attention of the market. To some extent, the UV printer is an upgrade of the inkjet printer.It can also be called the UV photo machine, and of course the UV photo machine is not the same kind of coarse equipment.As an example, which meet the demand of UV printer manufacturing standard can be called the UV machine.
Since the UV printer is inkjet machine upgrade, so the advantages of inkjet machine is perfectly inherited by UV machine , in addition to higher precision and faster printing speed than inkjet machine , the most attractive is the UV printer can dry fast, and can not be restricted by printing media, durability stronger.
Such as inkjet machine two heads printing speed, under the requirement of work is generally at about 40 ㎡ / h, it is still relatively high speed.But the UV printer, which uses the industrial head, has almost doubled the speed under the same precision.This UV printer can support roll and board material , can be called universal printer, application range covers the door inside and outside advertising, decoration, personalized gifts, printing and packaging, etc. It is an invisible money printing machine.It can print in cloth, glass, ceramic tile, crystal, acrylic, PVC, metal, plastic, stone, leather, rigid plate medium such as full color printing, output fast.
There is one point need to attention if you buy a uv printer.UV machine printing stability, printing head, after-sales service, upgrade of equipment, etc., all need to think about, especially the printing head, Ricoh head is now more than 3000USD, Toshiba head is cheaper, and printing life and precision is higher than the Ricoh, printing speed is faster than the Epson, so the maintenance cost of with Toshiba head UV printer is less than the rest of the UV machine.
A lot of printing material needs to be done before printing, the coating is particularly important.Different industries use different professional coatings and UV ink, which are cumbersome steps.UV ink cannot be changed frequently, so a UV machine only corresponds to one industry's printing business is best.Otherwise the maintenance cost can even buy two same UV machine, this point must consider clearly.
Although the price is more than double than the piezoelectric printer, the advantages of the UV machine are far superior to that of piezoelectric devices.Good equipment can never be measured by its price, and the value that it can bring to you is the most effective measure standard.
