Analysis of the hardware structure of UV flatbed printers. After reading this, you will know how to choose UV flatbed printers.

In addition to the head, the next step for the UV flatbed printer is to look at the overall machine structure and selected hardware. Machine structure: The structure of the UV flatbed printer is also divided into several sections: 1. Design of three-axis structure of X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis. 2. Circuit layout arrangement. 3. Design of ink route (referred to as ink route system). 4. Overall structural design and weight of the fuselage. 5. Functional assistance. 1. Design of three-axis structure of X-axis, Y-axis, and Z-axis: This is the most basic structure of the machine and the most critical. The normal X-axis is responsible for transverse movement (left and right), the Y-axis is responsible for longitudinal movement (front and back), and the Z-axis is responsible for lifting movement (up and down). When moving the X-axis, you must check whether the length of the beam is sufficient. Once the length is not enough, you will not be able to print horizontally to the edge. The verification method is to move the X-axis head to the opposite direction of standby. If the bottom of the head completely crosses the effective printing platform, and there is still room, then it is considered normal. If there is still some distance that has not been crossed or has just been crossed, then there is a problem. The X-axis also depends on whether the straight lines are parallel. There are two most convenient and intuitive methods. Let me teach you. First, look at the material of

UV printer head price anatomy analysis

In fact, buying a UV printer now is a bit like assembling a computer, so the current UV printer is also commonly called a UV assembly machine, because the most important core hardware is the head, and the head manufacturing technology is completely in the hands of the Japanese and is limited. As for the head, all factories in China that manufacture printers (note: not just UV printers, but all printers with different shapes and properties) are developed around the head, so if someone tells you that the head is made by themselves or Those who are directly researched and developed are either new to the industry or are simply trying to deceive you. First, let’s talk about the mainstream heads suitable for UV printers. Price and type of heads: Epson series: 1. F1080 model:  The head is between 175 and 215 US dollars, the life span is between half a year and 10 months, and 1080 nozzles, and six channels, mostly used in small and medium-sized UV printers, DTF equipment, crystal marking machines, because the F1080 head is Basic-level heads are cheap and have average durability. The ink drop volume is above 4PL. The ink drop holes are relatively small and the accuracy is high. However, it is also easier to block the head and the printing speed is slower. Generally, the whole machine will be equipped with two heads, one head is responsible for printing white and one head is responsible for printing color, or one head is

Why are some high-speed bottle tumbler printers coarse and blurry with the same head and hardware configuration while others are excellent?

Mainly affected by several aspects 1. Waveform There is a fixed waveform inside each head chip. The waveform directly affects the ink output intensity, ignition frequency, inkjet point, etc. of the head. It is equivalent to the basic origin. If the head waveform is not adjusted according to the corresponding software waveform, interruptions will occur. Problems such as ink, roughness, oblique spraying, etc., and before the waveform is adjusted, it cannot be repaired no matter how hard it is repaired. In the most serious case, it will affect the entire head channel and prevent ink from being discharged. Waveforms are also divided into large points, midpoints, small points, single points, variable points, etc. Different inkjet requirements correspond to different points, and different inkjet points also have special waveforms, so if the above problems occur, the first thing is The waveform is not adjusted properly or the waveform does not match the software and ink. 2. Curve The curve is the most important part of color software, which plays a role in the transition, compensation, accurate point-to-point injection, color calibration, ink volume, etc. This is why the printing effects produced by two machines from the same manufacturer, the same machine, and the same type of head are different in color, which requires curve adjustment. Especially the gray level, it is almost impossible to print a standard gray without the adjustment of the curve. 3. Ink Different ink manufacturers have different ink formulas. Some ink manufacturers are lighter, some are thicker, some

How do we apply uv flatbed printer to the socket switch panel?

At present, UV printing on socket switch panels is more suitable than silk screen printing. The surface of early sockets had mostly blank patterns or a small number of single-color or two-color lines. In this case, the silk screen printing process could meet the needs. Later, whether it was the company’s own brand promotion or the personalized needs of market users, it gave rise to DIY color printing on the surface of the switch, which can also better integrate with the surrounding decoration style. Suitable for UV-printed socket panels: 1. Civil socket; 2. Industrial socket; 3. Waterproof socket; 4. Audio socket; 5. Mobile socket; 6. USB socket, etc. Socket panel UV printing finished product effect: Since most sockets themselves are made of plastic, there is no need to wipe the coating on the surface. To ensure that the surface of the door opening panel is clean, you can wipe it with alcohol before printing. When choosing uv printer equipment: 1. When the order quantity is small and the switch panel specifications are basically the same, a small UV printer will suffice. Just print the positioning frame and manually remove the hem. 2. If the order volume is large and the equipment selected is relatively large, the switch panel will need to be made into a mold during printing to ensure the accuracy of pattern printing. Most of the surface of the switch panel is flat and smooth, and the requirements for the spraying force of the nozzle are not high.

How to use UV flatbed printer to print paddle patterns?

In the early days, the printing of patterns on paddles was relatively simple. Most were single-color or two-color lines, logos, etc. There were very few color printings of complex colors, especially in the area of personalized customization. It is only in recent years that UV printing technology has been gradually chosen for production. Types of paddle materials suitable for UV printing: 1. Carbon fiber (no coating required) 2. Plastic (no coating required) 3. Aluminum alloy (need to wipe the coating) 4. Wood, solid wood 5. Nylon (no coating required) 6. PVC (some require coating) Have to be aware of the following: Since the paddle itself is immersed in water for a long time, waterproofing is a problem to be overcome. Especially for seawater, seawater itself is more corrosive than fresh water. After extensive testing, if post-printing treatment (varnish coating) is not performed, the pattern formed by UV ink will fade. Paddle UV printing renderings: Features of these paddle materials: 1. Anti-bending, durable, and lightweight; 2. High strength and easy to carry. With the rise of DIY paddle pattern customization, we have come into contact with a large number of customers.
