How much ink does a digital sublimation printer consume per square meter?

How many milliliters of ink per square meter is the piezoelectric digital sublimation printer? I believe this is a question many friends want to know. In fact, this problem is very abstract, there is no uniform numerical value. Therefore, the ink consumption per square meter of piezoelectric wide format inkjet printer is affected by many factors, we can understand in detail below.

In fact, the amount of ink consumed per square meter of a sublimation textile printer is related to the color coverage and the print quality you choose. For example, if there are two pairs of pictures, the A4 format, one is 100% color coverage, and the other is 10% color coverage. The amount of ink consumed by the two is definitely different. The same picture, if you print separately with 1440DPI and 720DPI, the amount of ink consumed is different. The higher the printing accuracy, the higher the amount of ink consumed.

In general, if it is at 80% color coverage. It takes about 12 ml for a digital sublimation printer to print one square meter.

Why can’t large format dye sublimation printer change ink frequently?

large format dye sublimation printerInk is an important printing consumable that is indispensable in the printing process of large format dye sublimation printers. It is a frequently repeated purchase item. Some users choose different brands or even different types of ink for various reasons when purchasing ink. Here, I remind you that the ink of the large format dye sublimation printer cannot be changed frequently, and different types of ink cannot be mixed.

Different brands of printer inks are mixed: Different types of sublimation printers of different brands have different ink composition ratios.If mixed, the ink composition may change, and the color and variegated colors appear in the drawing. Even worse, the mixing of the two may cause precipitation, resulting in poor ink usage, clogging of the print head, and shortening the life of the printhead.

Different types of printer inks are mixed: There are several types of printer inks depending on the application. The most common ones are water-based inks and oil-based inks, which correspond to indoor printers and outdoor printers. The two ink components are different and cannot be mixed at all. Otherwise, the two components will chemically react, precipitate and precipitate, and block the printhead, which will seriously damage the print head.

The quality of printer ink will directly affect the printing effect and print quality of the image output of the sublimation transfer printer. Frequent replacement of the nozzle will cause more damage. Second, it will also affect the printing effect, increase the time cost, and reduce the profitability.

In addition, when you buy printer ink, you should consider the quality of the ink first. The original ink of the printer manufacturer is color-corrected and curve-tested. It is compatible with the device. It is recommended that you choose this type of ink first.

Eco solvent printers do not print well? These 4 points may be overlooked!

The eco-solvent printer is a large-format printing device with high printing accuracy and good color reproduction. With the advancement of technology, the printing speed and printing accuracy of eco-solvent printers have also been greatly improved. The development of China’s advertising industry has led to a significant increase in the demand for printing equipment such as eco solvent printers, and more and more users using eco-solvent printers.

eco solvent printers

Here is a special explanation for the requirements of the pictures in the eco solvent printer.

1. Size

eco solvent printersThe size of the photo image is the same as the actual required picture size. It is different from printing and does not require a bleeding portion. In the inkjet company, there is usually a white border after the output screen, and the general situation is to leave the net screen edge 10CM. You can agree with the inkjet output company, and how many edges are left for buttonholes. The price is calculated per square meter, so the screen size is in centimeters.

2. Image resolution requirements

The general situation requires 72DPI/inch. If the image is too large (such as when the new image shows the actual size of the PHOTOSHOP file size exceeds 400M), you can properly reduce the resolution and control it within 400M.

3. Image mode requirements

The photo is unified using the CMKY mode, and the RGB mode is prohibited. Today’s inkjet printers are all four-color inkjet, and its color is very different from the printing color. Of course, when drawing, follow the printing standards, the inkjet company will adjust the color of the picture and the sample close.

 4. Image black part requirements

eco solvent printersIt is strictly forbidden to have a single black value in the photo image. C, M, and Y colors must be added to form a mixed black. If it is big black, it can be made: C=50M=50Y=50K=100. Especially when using the effect with PHOTOSHOP, be careful to change the black part to four-color black. Otherwise, there will be a black cross on the screen, which will affect the overall effect.

Can a cheap UV flatbed printer be purchased with confidence?

UV flatbed printer

I believe that when many customers buy UV flatbed printers, they clearly feel that there is no difference in configuration. Why are the prices so different? The expensive UV flatbed printer costs tens of thousands of dollars, but the cheap ones only cost thousands of dollars?

Below I will discuss with you what is the cheap UV flatbed printer? Which cheap printer can buy?

When we buy a printer, we must first exclude used printers and modified machines. Although this type of digital UV printer is very cheap, it cannot be used. Because you buy a flatbed printer to make money, not to lose money to repair the machine often.

Because some UV flatbed printer manufacturers use inferior or have some used print heads after modification, you will find it will not be used after a period of use. So the price of UV printers will be much lower. So, one point for the price!

UV flatbed printer

The reason why the UV flatbed printer is cheap is nothing more than the following:

1. The hardware used is cheap.
These UV flatbed printers use some poor quality and inexpensive hardware. They simply removed some of the damaged internal hardware, changed the bottom Y-axis drive, added a few hundred dollars of LED lights and several ink cartridges worth more than a few dollars to complete the hardware modification.

2. The software used is cheap.
This type of UV flatbed printer uses an unknown printer board and system, just to make some changes in the content, without spending thousands of dollars to buy a special board for UV flatbed printing machines. This will cause the machine to always go wrong, and it is not acceptable to use it for mass production.

3. The overall cost is low.
The manufacturers of such UV flatbed printers are basically small workshops, do not have to bear corporate rents, taxes, and do not have to provide corresponding after-sales service, basically a hammer sale. Overall, the operating costs of such digital UV printer manufacturers are very low, which in turn causes their product prices to be extremely low.

4. No supporting services.
When purchasing UV flatbed printers, there are many supporting services for regular UV flatbed printer manufacturers. Such as providing a library, providing operational training, providing consumables, providing comprehensive after-sales service and corresponding prepress and post-press processing solutions, etc., but they do not.

In summary, I think everyone knows why some UV flatbed printers are so cheap, so you dare to buy such UV flatbed printers?

7 common sense about the print head of UV flatbed printer

The print head of the UV printer is believed to be one of the most concerned issues for all users, and it is also a question that is repeated and repeated. After all, the print head is the most frequently used in daily use, and the most common problem occurs around the print head. Understanding the common sense of the print head can help us become more comprehensive and professional.

print head

Import and domestic

The domestic uv printer print head, whether it is Epson print head, Seiko print head, or Konica print head, Ricoh print head and other print heads, are imported, and 90% of them are imported into Japan, and the rest are from the United Kingdom and the United States. Since the country does not have the corresponding technology for the time being, it cannot be produced.

Civil and industrial

print headThe print head of the UV printer itself is not divided into civilian and industrial, but there are big differences in the printing results, printing speed, printing performance and other parameters of different print heads. In order to facilitate the user’s understanding, the industry will divide the high-performance, long-life, and compatible print heads into the industrial field. In contrast, short printheads, high failure rates, and inexpensive printheads are classified as civilian printheads.

Cheap and expensive

To believe that “a penny and a share of goods” is the eternal truth, any product sold by a business is to make money, it is impossible not to make money, or even to sell at a loss. In the same way, there are no good, cheap nozzles, only good and expensive nozzles. Don’t be deceived by the slogan of advertising, you must make a rational judgment.

Print head and technology

Under normal circumstances, the more expensive a printhead is, the higher the capital, manpower, and material resources of the corresponding motherboard program development and upgrade services. Therefore, this has become an important criterion for judging the technical level of the manufacturer. The technical gap between the manufacturers can be compared by asking the price of the nozzles made by the manufacturer.

Print head and ink

Different uv printer nozzles have different nozzle diameters, nozzle materials, and internal structures, so it is important to remember that inks cannot be mixed. Otherwise, it will not only cause a reaction between the inks, but also shorten the life of the printer head, causing it to be clogged.

Encrypted and not encrypted

print headEncrypted and unencrypted printheads primarily refer to the Epson DX7 printhead, which has an encrypted printhead, a secondary encrypted printhead, three encrypted printheads, and an unencrypted printhead. Encryption means that the printhead will print a certain distance after printing, and a color bar will appear, causing the pattern to be scrapped. Unencrypted printheads don’t have this problem, but the price is more expensive than encryption. Domestic uv printer manufacturers are more mature in the process of decoding one encryption and secondary encryption, but the three-encrypted print head is still being cracked.

Warranty and no warranty

This is the last one, mainly because the users who ask too many questions ask and care about it. Once the printing head has been shipped from the factory, it will be returned for sale and replacement unless it is problematic before it is used. Installed on the equipment, after the ink is tested, the problem is that it is not guaranteed. There are too many main uncontrollable factors.

From this point of view, in fact, the printer print head is not without warranty, it is part of the consumables. Why do you often hear that some manufacturers advertise printheads for 1 year or even 2 years? These are just slogans for propaganda. Carefully review the terms of the warranty, various additional conditions, additional costs, harsh to say not to report for 1 year, 20 years of insurance are manufacturers to make money.
