Which Kind Nozzle Print Head is Better for UV Printers?

The UV printers with different nozzles print heads are different for the customer group.

1.The UV printers of Epson nozzles are cheap, medium speed, and the nozzle life is relatively short, but the fineness is all nozzles. The leader in the middle.
2.The UV printer of the Ricoh nozzle is more expensive, the speed is medium, and the life of the nozzle is relatively long.
3, Kyocera nozzle UV printer is expensive, speed against the sky, the nozzle life is relatively long.

You can understand this:

1. If you don’t have a lot of budget, use the UV printer with Epson nozzle.
2.If the fineness of the printing effect is relatively high, use the UV printer of the Epson nozzle.
3. If the printing speed of 18 square meters per hour still can’t meet your needs, then only industrial nozzles are suitable for you.
4, the budget is ample, the efficiency requirements are slightly higher, the choice of light nozzle UV printer, or Toshiba, Seiko can be.
5, if it is not bad money, and the speed requirements are relatively high, then the Kyocera nozzle UV roll to roll printer.
Note: Many sprayers love to take this and say that in addition to the nozzles used in their own UV printers, they feel that other nozzles are rubbish. It is good to see these smiles, don’t be too true.

Which effect is good for industrial nozzles and Epson nozzles?
The printing accuracy of Epson nozzles has always been an insurmountable gap between other nozzles. In terms of color saturation, all nozzles have little difference.
How long is the UV printer nozzle life?
In the case of proper maintenance:
Epson nozzle life is generally around 1 year.
The life of the Ricoh nozzle is between 1 and 2 years.
Toshiba and Seiko’s nozzle life is similar to that of Ricoh.
The life of Kyocera nozzles is between 3 and 5 years.

Why do you want to make a proof before the UV plotter prints?

UV plotterThe UV plotter does not require plate making, printing, and repeating color printing, and whether it is a simple block image or a full-color image or a gradient image, it can be printed at one time. The printed image is fast and printed as a product. Therefore, UV printers must do pre-press inspection before mass printing.

UV plotter pre-press proofing is the process of connecting between pre-press and official start-up printing. It is a printing effect that allows customers to anticipate the printing before printing. Avoid any dissatisfaction after printing, and then change it, time and effort. The prepress proofing of the printer can also have the following effects:

UV plotterProofing the UV printer before printing can help the customer check whether the text, image, color and page settings included in the printed image are correct, so that they can be modified in time. Especially the color of the image is the most difficult to control in printing. Due to the different substrate, ink and dot gain rate, the color of the printed image changes. Therefore, it is possible to perform a proofing test before mass printing, and to see if the color of the sample is together with the planned color, make timely changes, and then print in large quantities.

UV led printer prepress proofing can be used as a contract sample between the printer and the customer. After all, the printing effect must be adhered to the contract sample, and the contract sample should be shot shortly before the large-volume printing operation to avoid fading and distortion of the sample due to long time.

UV printing machine pre-press proofing is an important basis for print quality control and is also a communication with customers. What the customer wants to do, what effect they want, and if they are dissatisfied, they can first type out the sample, talk about the effect, and after the modification is completed, batch production. Pre-press proofing can reduce disputes between printers and customers due to unimportant printing results, saving time and effort.

What’s The Applications of UV Printer (Flatbed Printer, Hybrid Printer, Roll to Roll Printer)?

When deciding which printer you should buy, the most important related question is: What applications do you need the printer for? Also, it’s the first question we asked from new customers. In this blog, we will detailly summarize signage printer, UV printer, Textile printer’s media types, and applications.

Simply adjust the UV printer ink thickness to master these two methods

UV printer

UV printers are becoming more and more popular in the printing market, but it is a new model after all. Many people are not familiar with all-round printers. Recently, there are many customers who can consult whether the UV printer can change the thickness of the ink. What is the detailed method, let us know here today.

Generally speaking, domestic UV printers are usually four colors, and industrial equipment standards are six colors and eight colors. Adjusting the thickness of the ink mainly depends on three factors.

Adjust the ink thickness of uv printer. It can be analyzed from three aspects:

The first is the variety and background color of the raw materials. If the raw material is soft in appearance, the gap is large, and the base color of the raw material is deep, the demand is increased by 20%-40%.

Second, if the image is darker and the color requirements are more beautiful. The thickness of the ink should be appropriately improved.

In the end.Depending on the special request, if you want to emboss 3D, you need to add the thickness of the ink.

To change the thickness of the ink, you can use the method described below:

In the printing software, it is possible to set the percentage of the ink ejection amount. And it is also possible to set the number of printing passes and then change the thickness of the ink. The advantage of this is that on the one hand it saves ink and on the other hand it improves the quality of the print.

The UV printing machine advances to set the thickness of the ink, and an auxiliary function is the percentage of feathering. Usually between 0% and 200%. If the pattern printed by the system becomes more delicate and the color is more abundant. It is required to register the feathering function. The larger the value, the better the printing effect, the same, the lower the production. Speed, the details should be determined according to the actual needs of users.

It should be noted that the thickness of the ink set by the UV printer is not as thick as possible. The same is true if the setting is unreasonable, which will affect the quality of the printed color.

Is the UV flatbed printer seriously polluting the environment?

Whether the uv flatbed printer pollution is serious or not directly affects whether the user purchases. In the external environment, the hard requirements of environmental protection, the closure of high-polluting enterprises, punishment, etc., printing companies need a new type of environmentally friendly printing equipment, to do internal upgrades. Overall analysis, uv printer pollution is not serious, can be analyzed from four aspects.

Is the UV flatbed printer seriously polluting the environment?

1.Noise pollution

In the printing process, the original type of uv printer noise decibel <60 decibels, this not only meets the requirements of residential houses, but also meets the decibel requirements of industrial type noise. It avoids the harm of the body such as hearing and vision caused by the operator’s long-term high noise pollution.

2. Light pollution

The uv printer emits light waves through the led curing lamp during the printing process. If the wavelength of the ultraviolet light is staring at the time, it will cause discomfort and dryness of the eyes. Therefore, in the design, the position of the lamp is very low, avoiding the spread of the high position light, and also requires the operator to wear the safety glasses at work. In practice, since the device is set up and automatically printed, there is no need for the technician to stare at it for a long time.

3. Odor pollution

This is mainly manifested in uv ink. Although uv ink is very low in pollution compared with traditional printing dyes, it has passed environmental testing, but it does not mean that there is no chemical property. In practice, when the printed pattern is placed for 24 hours, the odor can be volatilized. The odor produced during production is also small.

4. Sewage pollution

Piezoelectric inkjet printing systems ensure on-demand printing, unlike traditional printing, where large amounts of waste and waste liquids are required to be discharged. The waste uv ink produced by a uv printer for one month, no more than 1L, can be directly imported into the sewer and rinsed.

It is precisely because these four core aspects of pollution assessment meet the needs of current environmental printing, so uv printing machine has been used by the majority of printing companies in recent years.
