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.
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
The 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
Encrypted 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.
