UV printer (Ultraviolet LED Ink jet Printer) is a high-tech, plate-free full-color digital printing machine, which can print on almost any materials, like T-shirts, glass, plates, various signs, crystal, PVC, acrylic, metal, stone, and leather.
With the increasing urbanization of UV printing technology, many entrepreneurs use a UV printer as the beginning of their business. In this article, we will introduce in detail six aspects, why UV printers are so popular and why they should be used as entrepreneurs’ starting point.
Time is money agree? In this fast-developing world, people all work hard, and everyone wants to achieve the maximum output per unit of time. This is an era that focuses on efficiency and quality so much! The UV printer perfectly satisfies this point.
In the past, it took several days or even dozens of days for a product to be delivered from design and large-scale printer proofing. However, the finished product can be obtained in 2-5 minutes by applying UV printing technology, and the production batch is not limited. Efficient production process. The process flow is short, and the finished product after printing does not require post-treatment processes such as steaming and water washing; it is highly flexible and can be printed in a short time after the customer chooses the scheme.
When your competitors are still in the production process, you have put your product into the market and seized the market opportunity! This is the starting line to win!
In addition, the durability of UV curable inks is very strong, so you don’t need to use a film to protect the surface of the printed matter. This not only solves the bottleneck problem in the production process but also reduces material costs and shortens the conversion time. UV curing ink can stay on the surface of the substrate without being absorbed by the substrate.
Therefore, its printing and color quality between different substrates are more stable, which saves users a lot of time in the entire production process.
To meet the individual needs of people to the greatest extent, the majority of designers can give full play to their creative talents. Design samples can be arbitrarily modified on the computer. The effect on the computer is the effect of the finished product. After the customer is satisfied, it can be directly produced. This also means that you can use your rich imagination to transform any novel ideas in your mind into materials.
Traditional screen printing with more than 10 colors is very difficult. UV flatbed printing is rich in colors. Whether it is a full-color pattern or gradient color printing, it is easy to achieve color photo-level effects. Greatly expand the design space of the product and upgrade the product grade. UV printing has fine patterns, rich and clear layers, high artistry, and can print photography and painting style patterns.
White ink can be used to print images with embossed effects, which makes the color printed patterns come alive, and also allows designers to have more room for development. More importantly, the printing process is not troublesome at all. Just like a home printer, it can be printed at once. It is dry, which is unmatched by ordinary production technology. It can be seen that the future development of UV printers is unlimited!
3. Economic (ink)
Traditional screen printing requires film plate making, which costs 200 yuan a piece, a complicated process, and a long production cycle. Only single-color printing is more expensive, and the screen printing dots cannot be eliminated. Mass production is required to reduce the cost, and small batches or individual product printing cannot be achieved.
Uv is a kind of short-run printing, which does not require complicated layout design and plate making, and is suitable for a variety of types and personalized printing. Do not limit the minimum quantity, reducing printing cost and time. Only simple picture processing is required, and after calculating the relevant values, directly use the UV printing software to operate.
The biggest advantage of UV curing platform ink jet printer is that it can make the ink dry in an instant, which only takes 0.2 seconds, and it will not affect the printing speed. In this way, the transfer speed of jobs will be improved, and the output and profit that the printer can bring to you will also increase.
Compared with water-based or solvent-based inks, UV inks can adhere to more materials, and also expand the use of substrates that do not require pre-treatment. Untreated materials are always cheaper than coating materials because of reduced processing steps, which saves users a lot of material costs. There is no cost for making screens; time and materials for printing are reduced; labor costs are reduced.
For some New business starters, the biggest worry may be that there is not enough budget, but we confident tell you that UV ink is very economical!
4. User friendly
The screen printing process is more complicated. The plate-making and printing processes are selected according to different printing materials. There are many specific types of processes. As far as the color set is concerned, a rich designer’s understanding of colors is required. One color and one board are troublesome for the overall operation.
UV printer only needs to place the printed materials on the platform, fix the position, and perform simple layout positioning of the processed high-definition pictures in the software, and then start printing. The printing mode is consistent for different materials, but a small number of materials need to be coated.
There is no need to make a screen, which saves a lot of time; the pattern design and changes can be carried out on the computer screen, and the color matching can be carried out with the mouse.
Many customers have the same question. I am a green hand. Is the UV printer easy to use and easy to operate? Our answer is yes, Easy to operate! More importantly, we provide life-long online software after-sales service. If you have any questions, our technical staff will patiently answer you.
5. Space saved
UV printers are very suitable for home office work. Many customers who buy UV printing are newbies to UV printers. They choose UV printers to start a business or as their second career. In this case, UV is a good choice, because an A2 UV machine covers an area of only about 1 square meter, which is very space-saving.
6. Can Print on anything!
UV printers can not only print photo-quality patterns but also print concave and convex, 3D, relief, and other effects Printing on tiles can add a lot of value to ordinary tiles! Among them, the color of the printed background wall will last for a long time, without fading, moisture-proof, UV-proof, etc. It can usually last about 10-20 years.
Print on glass, such as ordinary flat glass, frosted glass, etc. Color and pattern can be freely designed.
Nowadays, UV flatbed printers are also widely used in crystal crafts, signs, and plaques, especially in the advertising and wedding industries. The UV flatbed printer can print beautiful text in transparent acrylic and crystal products, and has the characteristics of white ink printing. image. The three layers of white, color, and white inks can be printed on the surface of the media at the same time, which not only simplifies the process but also ensures the printing effect.
UV printers print wood, and imitation wood bricks have also become more popular recently. The pattern of the floor tiles is usually natural or burnt. Both production processes are expensive and there is no separate customization. Only a large number of samples of various colors are produced and sold to the market. Production is getting better and better, and it is easy to fall into a passive state. UV flatbed printer solves this problem, and the appearance of printed floor tiles is almost the same as solid wood tiles.
The application of UV flatbed printers is far more than these, it can also print mobile phone shells, thick leather, printed wooden boxes, etc. Investing in various businesses is not a problem. The problem is that you must have a pair of eyes to discover the needs of society, and a smart brain and creativity are always the greatest wealth.
