High-End UV Flatbeds and the Changing Dynamics of In-Store Marketing

The use of screen-printing equipment for P-O-P and retail graphics declines as orders for shorter runs of more customized materials continue to rise.

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been about 15 years since the first flatbed inkjet printers to use UV-curable inks hit the market. So much has changed since 2000, both for firms that started out as screen printers and their clients in retailing and brand marketing.

Edge Lighting LEDs

Edge Lighting LEDs

Any time there’s a discussion of the versatile light-emitting diode (LED), there’s sure to be a lot of acronyms thrown into the mix. And acronyms—unless you have a military background (Lima! Echo!

On April 13th 2015, an EU ban came into force that prohibits the use of mercury in lighting, causing concern among some in the wide-format print industry that printers using mercury vapour for ink curing will also be affected. While it seems this is not on the cards just yet, the EU's focus on the metal suggests it may be worthwhile looking at the alternatives when choosing new equipment.

UV Ink Safety Review

UV Ink Safety Review

Sign and print shops are increasingly using UV-cure type inkjet printers for printing onto rigid substrates and other applications.
