Use of digital technology has made large format printing possible. In case you are in India and want digital printing solutions, Axis Enterprises is the industry leader. WHAT IS A UV PRINTER MACHINE? It is also known as a flatbed UV printer. As the name implies, the material to be printed on is placed on a flat surface. They employ the use of UV curable inks made of acrylic monomers. When these monomers are exposed to UV light, they polymerize or undergo curing. This technology allows you to print on a wide variety of surfaces like glass, leather, metal, tiles and even PVC Printing bed adjustable feature allows you to print on surfaces with thicknesses of several inches. Comparisons with Other Printing Formats There are a number of differences between UV printing and other printing formats. The following are a few differences between some of them when compared to printing with a flatbed printer. Solvent Printing One advantage flatbed printers have over their solvent counterparts is that they are environmentally friendly. Solvent printing generates significant amounts of indoor pollution and waste in form of cartridges. When you compare a flatbed printer with most printers, you find that they can print on objects that deform easily. These objects are not deformed by pressure or heat as it operates without having direct contact with the print material. Sublimation Printing With UV printing, you get instant results as the image is printed and cured with UV light. Sublimation uses a heat press to apply the image to the object. Screen Printing Screen printing is complicated and more expensive than UV printing. Film plates required for screen printing are expensive. UV printing requires simple image processing techniques. Screen print products take time to season and easily scrape off. UV prints are resistant to abrasions and scratches. They tend to have more detail with vivid colors. Pad Printing Pad printing results in smaller images with inferior quality when compared to UV printing which produces much larger, high-quality images. Operating a pad printer requires you to possess a certain skill set which you do not need with a flatbed printer. A pad printer requires you to clean it a lot while your flatbed can clean itself. Eco-Solvent Printing An eco-solvent printer does not have the color white and cannot print on your black objects whereas a flatbed can. UV printers dry immediately after heating while eco-solvent printers require high temperatures for drying.Features and Benefits of a Flatbed Printer Check out the following features and advantages of using a flatbed printer.1. Versatility flatbed printer allows you to print on a wide range of materials. The only limitation is that the materials need to be relatively flat.2. Uneven Surface Printing This allows you to print on a flat uneven surface.3. Easy To Use It is quite easy to operate and use. All you need to do is input your requirements and let it do the rest.4. Self Cleaning Functional flatbed printer automatically cleans the printhead and protects the nozzle from jamming.
