Advantages of Using a UV Printer

Ultraviolet (UV) printers were introduced after the advent of similar machines. Although recently launched, this type of printer has won a place in the hearts of the father of the digital printing business entrepreneur.

Maybe some are not familiar with the name of the UV printer? Other people also call it a UV flatbed printer machine or a flatbed printer and so on.

Basically what they mean is this UV printer. Why is he so sought after? Because a machine like this is capable of printing on wood, acrylic, and other media.

This means that materials such as acrylic will be printed directly on the surface with the ink of choice. Printing in this way is very possible if you use a flatbed UV printer.

Because of these advantages, not a few digital printing entrepreneurs have moved elsewhere. They cheated on the UV printer.

Even though there are quite a lot of ordinary digital printers that have okay quality, in fact, many still insist on moving to this UV printer.

Advantages of Using a UV Printer

Now let's talk about the good things that you can find in this printer machine. Please read carefully so that it can be used as a guide before you buy it.

1. Able to Print on Various Media

If ordinary printers are capable of printing on vinyl, then UV printers have gone a step further.

UV printers are capable of printing on various media, such as cellphone cases, accessory boxes, ballpoint pens, to furniture.

Using a UV printer for the above tasks is much easier, more efficient, and of better quality. Compared to screen printing or other conventional technologies.

2. Leave Competitors

Facing the cruelty of the printing business you must have a device that has superior value to competitors.

If your competitors in your city still use regular printers to print images on paper or plastic surfaces, please fight them with a UV printer.

Why? Because this printer prints on paper and plastic equally well. While ordinary printer machines will not be able to do good printing on a plastic surface.

3. Not Repetitive

If you have a UV printer, printing on the substrate surface will be done in one go. So you don't have to do it over and over again.

If it is necessary to have a metallic ink print or produce a gloss-dull effect, the process can be carried out without a polymer plate at all.

Generally, this type of printing is done on plastic, foil, synthetic, and static-cling materials. This kind of printability satisfies customers who care about premium design quality.

3. Flexible Configuration

Ordinary conventional printing machines that are equipped with UV configurations are called hybrid printing machines. An example is an 8 color printing machine (Heidelberg CD 102) which has a docking station.

Between the printing, units can be installed with 4 UV dryer stations. The good thing is that it can be on-off in such a way depending on the needs of the print job.

This hybrid print takes 1.5 – 2 hours to change between UV and conventional blankets. That time span is included with the makeready job.

Hybrid engines are relatively cheaper than the “full inter deck UV curing” system. And printing companies can be flexible in using machines according to the needs of the print job,

Especially if the UV job is not too dominant, or if you are in the early stages of building a printing business with a UV printer.

The number of UV drying units depends on the number of printing units from the printing press. It could also be only 2 units of UV dryers because there are few printed docking station units.

Hope it is useful. ***
