Why is the application of UV flatbed printers on storage bags gradually maturing?

The storage bags here are not only storage bags for small items but also include express packaging storage bags, stationery, toys, and other materials… At the beginning, the UV printing process was immature on these materials and was not widely used. rise, mainly for two reasons: 1. Pattern adhesion Most UV inks on the market lack adhesion, flexibility, and stretchability on express bags, and are prone to fading and falling off. Although the actual service life of these bags is only about 2 months, they will be replaced and do not need to be stored for a long time. However, due to the high frequency of use of the bag itself and the high intensity of external friction, the pattern color shedding cycle is too short. Finally, after testing more than a dozen UV inks, I selected the suitable one. 2. External environment In recent years, with the promotion of green environmental protection, many highly polluting printing and dyeing methods such as screen printing, solvent-based, and transfer printing have been eliminated. Printing companies also need new processes to help them upgrade and transform themselves. This has also boosted the use of UV printing technology in the industry. Applications in the field of storage bags. Storage bag UV printed finished product: At present, there are several mature materials for UV printing storage bags: 1. PET material; 2. Cotton and linen material; 3. Non-woven material. These material properties: 1. Small, flexible, and highly compressible, saving space; 2. Achieve the functions of dust-proof,

What is the application of UV flatbed printer in printing diatom mud foot pads?

How to choose a uv flatbed printer? Diatom mud foot pads are printed using UV technology. At present, the technology is very mature. When choosing a UV flatbed printer, you need to pay attention to choosing an industrial type nozzle with a larger nozzle hole. From the perspective of technology and actual production feedback, there are four main reasons: 1. Water absorption performance Through a large number of field tests, it was reported that nozzles with fine nozzle holes (such as Epson fifth-generation nozzles, small Ricoh heads, etc.) with high precision are more serious about diatom mud penetration performance, which will affect the water absorption performance of diatom mud pads and reduce the cost in practical applications. Effect. 2. Ink density If the nozzle holes of the nozzle are small and fine, the amount of ink used to print the pattern will be reduced, and the density of UV ink will be higher than that of the thick nozzle, which will also reduce the water absorption performance of the diatom mud pad. 3. Production efficiency Taking the Seiko gs508 nozzle as an example, the measured speed in production mode is 36㎡/hour. Other types of nozzles are generally around 20 square meters, and some are less than 15㎡. The efficiency is not satisfactory. 4. On-site environment There is a lot of dust at the diatom mud site. In this environment, the service life of the nozzles will be damaged. The more civilian-type nozzles are, the faster they will be damaged. For

Application of UV flatbed printer in fishing rod printing

Fishing rod trademarks used transfer printing for pattern printing in the early days, and later gradually adopted the UV printing process. Technically speaking, three main problems are solved. 1. Accurate positioning By making a special fishing rod mold to fix the position of the material, deviations are less likely to occur during the pattern printing process. It also improves the efficiency of the operation and eliminates the need to repeat a single alignment process. 2. Jet force intensity The fishing rod trademark itself is cylindrical, with a curvature drop of about 2mm. In addition, the size is relatively small, on the one hand, the requirements for the accuracy of the nozzle are high, and on the other hand, the requirements for the spray force are also relatively strong. There are grayscale industrial nozzles represented by G5i/i1600/i3200/xp600 on the market to solve this problem. 3. Waterproof The actual application scenarios of fishing rods are mostly at the waterside, where they are often in contact with water. The technical problem of the waterproofness of the pattern was not solved in the early stage. Later, after the matching UV ink was satisfied, it spread. Fishing rod UV printing renderings: Types of fishing rod trademark materials that can be printed by UV printer: 1. Made of bamboo wood, no coating required; 2. Glass fiber requires glass coating; 3. Carbon fiber, no coating required; 4. Titanium alloy requires metal coating. Advantages of using UV printing patterns: 1. Environmentally friendly meets current requirements and conforms to

What are the toxicity of UV ink and its solutions?

Compared with traditional printing pigments (solid, liquid, powder), UV ink is greatly improved in environmental protection. Especially after printing on the surface of the material for 12 hours, it basically has no smell and can be in direct contact with the skin. But it still contains a small amount of toxicity, after all, the ink contains chemicals. What needs to be understood is that the cheaper the inferior UV ink is, the more toxic it is. Compared with imported high-end UV ink, the toxic damage can reach 10 times or even higher. The harm of UV ink is mainly manifested in two aspects: 1. Corrosiveness of ink:  A small number of people have sensitive skin. After contact with UV ink, rashes, and allergies will occur. They need to be washed immediately and apply ointment. If it accidentally splashes into the eyes, rinse with water immediately. 2. The smell of ink is pungent:  some people, especially those with rhinitis or respiratory tract sensitivity, are easily irritated and cause discomfort. Solution: 1. The indoor ventilation should be smooth. Do not install the UV printer in a closed and unventilated place. 2. If possible, the UV printer operating room can be isolated separately. 3. If there are no separate isolation conditions, you can choose to wear a mask for filtering. 4. Technicians should exercise more, eat more fruits, pay attention to their diet, etc. to improve their body’s immunity. Whether it is the operator or the user himself, there is no need to

Why should we be wary of low-priced UV inks?

The first contact was at the beginning of the year when XX Company (not mentioned in detail here) recommended low-price ink to customers, which was US$15/L. This price was really low and attractive, and the other party also said that if the quantity was large, they could continue to negotiate discounts. I didn’t pay attention at the time and gave up after saying a few perfunctory words. Last week I received a call from Mr. Li saying that the head was clogged and scrapped. It’s very strange. After all, the G5i head has only been used for a year. According to normal use, it still has a lifespan of at least 2 to 1 and a half years. After checking the shelf life of the UV ink of the same batch and the daily maintenance form of the machine, it shows that the ink bags, ink tubes, and other ink circuit components are replaced every 6 months, and there will be no problems in these aspects. I also chatted with Xiao Zhang, the technician who operates the machine, about the usage in the past month. His feedback was that the adhesion of the pattern was not as good as before, the smell was obviously stronger after printing, and the drying process was not thorough. The printed color, especially red, is not as good as before, and the frequency of ink pressing is much higher than before… I also checked the products made by the customer a few days ago, and

High-speed cylindrical bottle tumbler printer pays back in half a year – has nothing to do with 80% of users

Many users ask whether high-speed cylindrical bottle tumbler printers make money from personalized customization… This kind of question itself is wrong. It blames the commercial money-making process on a simple piece of equipment while ignoring important personnel, operations, costs, and other aspects. The result was that Naohan added a machine and resold it 2 months later. Don’t believe too much that if you buy a high-speed cylindrical bottle tumbler printer, you can pay back the cost in 3 months and earn back another machine in 6 months. If this is the case, it is not your turn to buy the machine. The practitioners themselves have already bought it. crazy. Some of the customer cases listed have stable market orders and customer groups. However, the high-speed cylindrical bottle tumbler printer technology has helped them increase their added value and quickly recover costs, but the focus is on market channels and customer orders. There is a simple formula for calculating the investment return period of a high-speed cylindrical bottle tumbler printer: There are 365 days in a year, excluding holidays, employee leave, weekend holidays, equipment failure maintenance, etc., usually 200 effective production days are calculated, and the printing time is 8-10 hours per day. Assuming that the actual speed in production mode can achieve 10㎡ per hour (excluding the time for loading and unloading, alignment, coating, drawing, etc.), the output is 80㎡-100㎡ per day. The costs of personnel, site rental, electricity bills, consumables, machine depreciation, etc. add up to 5-6 US dollars

What are the misunderstandings about the origin of UV printer heads?

The piezoelectric heads used in UV printers are produced in Japan, the United Kingdom, and other places, such as Japan’s Epson heads, Seiko heads, Konica heads, Ricoh heads, and Kyocera heads; British Xaar heads; American Polaris heads… About There are four misunderstandings about sprinklers: Misunderstanding about the origin of heads 1 So far, there is no technical capability to produce UV printer heads in China, and the heads used are all imported. Larger manufacturers will get the heads directly from the original factory, while small manufacturers will get the heads from agents; so when you encounter some salesmen who say that the heads are made by their own company, they are all scammers. Misunderstanding about the origin of heads 2 Not having the ability to develop and produce printheads does not mean that there is no ability to develop supporting printhead board control systems. Of course, this ability is mainly concentrated in a few companies. Many of them just take the motherboards from these companies slightly modify them and then promote their own research and development. Misunderstanding about the origin of heads 3 The head is just a component. When it is used in a UV printer, it is called a UV printer head. When it is used in an inkjet printer, it is called an inkjet printer head… When you see some manufacturers producing Seiko head UV printers, Ricoh head UV printers, etc., it just shows that their type of head configured on the equipment does not mean that
