What are the advantages of LED as a light source?

With an LED print head, the dot size is smaller compared to other methods, which results in a more accurate output. Smaller dots allow for a wider range of shading, which also improves print quality.

UV Printing onto Glass

UV Printing onto Glass

Advances in UV digital printing technology have opened up a world of new opportunities for shops willing to experiment with the various types of media options available to them. One of these areas includes the process of printing onto glass. In the past, imaging onto glass was mainly achieved through painting, etching and screen printing—now the same results are being attained faster and more economically using UV-cure inkjet flatbed printer technology.

Beating Static Buildup in UV Printing

Beating Static Buildup in UV Printing

Anyone who is printing onto plastic-based substrates with a UV-curing inkjet printer has encountered the problem of static buildup. Static electricity is the result of an imbalance between positive and negative charges. These charges build up on the surface of an object until they find a way to be released or discharged.

Are LED Curing Systems ready to take over?

Are LED Curing Systems ready to take over?

There’s been much attention of late on the use of mercury arc lamps for curing applications in the printing industry.

This technology is widely used however it has some serious drawbacks, not least the fact that it uses an awful lot of energy even when not actually curing anything. This means cost and unnecessary emissions which do nothing to improve a company’s carbon footprint.
