How to adjust the UV printer ink thickness?

uv prinerGenerally speaking, domestic uv printers are generally four colors, and industrial equipment standards are six colors and eight colors. Adjusting the thickness of the ink mainly depends on three factors. The first is the type of material and the background color. If the surface of the material is soft, the gap is large, and the material has a darker background, it is necessary to increase the amount of ink by 20%-40%. Followed by the requirements of the picture, if the color of the picture is darker and the color requirements are more beautiful, it is necessary to appropriately increase the thickness of the ink. Finally, we must look at the special requirements. If we are looking for the embossed 3D effect, we need to increase the thickness of the ink. To change the thickness of the ink, the method described below can be used.

The percentage of the ink ejection amount can be set in the printing software, or the number of printing passes can be set to change the thickness of the ink. The benefits of this can save ink on the one hand and improve the quality of printing on the other.

Printing the word out of the convex and concave is actually printing the relief, this uv printing technology, choose the right printing material. Just set it up and print it directly. Not only can you print the relief effect, but you can also print the 3D effect.

The uv printer prints the principle of embossing, outlines the lines to be printed (ps spot color processing) through computer graphics software, and then prints them through the ORIC UV printer. The principle is to first accumulate white ink to outline the line, then color, the print depth is 5mm.

What is the solution to the software driver failure of the uv flatbed printer?

The uv flatbed printer software driver host failure manifests itself in four aspects: host system failure, software corruption, drive anomaly, and map software failure, which will directly cause the device to fail to print properly.

1.Uv flatbed printer host system failure

Solution: After the computer is completely disinfected, reinstall the system software, and then add various software of the uv flatbed printer to the white list. Avoid some files being deleted and cleaned up because of anti-virus software later. At the same time, in the daily use process, don’t download all kinds of cracking software or insert U disk.

2.Uv flatbed printer software is damaged

Solution: Reinstall the damaged uv flatbed printer software;

3.Uv flatbed printer driver is abnormal

Solution: Win7, win10 system under the various driver software, try not to upgrade to the latest version, often the stability is very poor, the software compatibility on the original uv flatbed printer has not been verified, operating equipment on the computer, you should use the computer environment required by the device to make it special for the computer. If the driver is abnormal, return to the original driver.

4.Uv flatbed printer map software failure

Solution: Uninstall the damaged map software and reinstall the new one. If there is an upgrade, you can update the map software at any time.

Have to be aware of is:

1. Uv printer uses a variety of software, do not arbitrarily change the parameter settings inside;

2. The installed computer system environment needs to be closed to the remote automatic upgrade service. The drivers will not be upgraded without affecting the normal printing of the device.

Is the UV printer smell bad?

UV printers have a little taste when printed, relatively mild, can not smell in the environment with good nasal congestion or ventilation, the finished product after printing is completely tasteless, and it is not volatile for a long time, it can be applied to various surroundings.

The source of the taste of a UV printer when printing an item has two aspects: the taste of the ink and the taste of the pretreatment liquid.


UV inks have a little taste before uncured. The UV inks produced by different UV ink manufacturers have some differences in their scent. If the smell is too big, consider changing a UV ink brand, or consider it. Doing an article on air circulation will achieve better results.

2. Treatment fluid

Items that are not too hard, such as plastics and acrylics, do not need to be pre-treated before UV printing, but if you want a good adhesion, such as glass, metal, marble, etc., you need to print before printing. These treatment solutions have more or less odors before spraying.

The product printed on the UV printer will not have any odor residue. Once the UV ink is cured, the performance is very stable. Under high humidity, high temperature and strong ultraviolet light, it will not volatilize, so it will not produce odor.

Is UV printing right for your custom apparel business?

To discuss whether UV printing is right for your custom apparel business, we want to talk about what UV is and is it right for your business.

What is UV printing?

Oftentimes you’ll hear it referred to as UV LED flatbed printing. Mainly focusing on small to mid-format. Anywhere from 12×11 up to 48×30. I think a lot of people associate UV printers with the really large printers, and we’ve seen some at shows which are 4×8 feet and take up the whole building.

What does it mean to UV print something?

When you use UV printing you are using inks that are reactive to UV light. Those UV lights actually cure the inks, setting the inks on the substrate. We’re so used to a DTG printer that when a shirt comes out of the machine we don’t want to touch it, because it’s still wet. But with UV, it’s dry. Secondarily, it’s generally going on to items we historically wouldn’t do, like textiles – plastics, metals, woods.

UV printing is a combination of light and ink that reacts to it, so that it dries immediately.

Not just dries, it actually sets, there’s an actual reaction as well. Similar to DTG, we heat press the shirt, that’s not just drying the ink. It’s actually making a chemical reaction occur that sets the ink as well.

If you’re already an apparel decorator and you’re doing any kind of printing – sublimation, screenprinting, DTG – you have to do something after it comes out of the machine in order to set the ink. You have to throw it onto a drier or heat press.

When we first started delving into this, you didn’t want to touch it, because we’re so used to there having to be another step. With UV printing, it’s done when it comes out of the machine. That doesn’t mean there aren’t things you need to do ahead of time. There are certain substrates that aren’t receptive to the inks that you do need to treat. There are primers you can use that will make the surfaces more receptive to the ink.


There have always been two major areas in advertising production, indoor and outdoor. At present, the market adopts the outdoor inkjet printer developed by new technology. The printing accuracy is basically the same as the output precision of indoor printing equipment, and the outdoor indoor equipment tends to be integrated. So what should we pay attention to when purchasing UV flatbed printers? Let’s talk about it today.

sublimation printing

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.

1.The first is the variety and base color of the raw materials. If the raw material is softer in appearance, the gap is larger, and the base color of the raw material is deeper, it needs to increase 20%-40% ink quantity.

2.The second is to look at the image request. If the color of the image is darker and the color request is more beautiful, then the thickness of the ink should be improved appropriately;

3.In the end, depending on the special request. If you want to emboss 3D effect, 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 doing so is that on the one hand it saves ink and on the other hand it improves the quality of the print.

The UV printer 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 becomes 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 the thicker the better. If the setting is unreasonable, it will also affect the quality of the printed color.
