White color mode

According to different printing requirements, the white color mode options include color white varnish, color white, single color, single white, single varnish, and color varnish. The following will explain the control of the lamp in different printing modes (only The three-head arrangement of the air-cooled varnish lamp is effective):

1. Color white varnish (or color varnish) mode printing: When inkjet starts, the color white light (main light) turns on, and when the varnish light reaches the white edge position, the light oil light turns on.

2. Printing in single varnish mode: When the varnish lamp reaches the white edge position during printing, the varnish lamp starts to illuminate.

3. Printing in color and white (single color or single white) mode: when inkjet starts, only the color and white light (main light) is turned on, and the varnish light is turned off.

White ink volume and light ink volume

Normal printing is 1 time, mainly for users who require high thickness or high white ink bumpiness, the more the setting times are, the longer the printing time is, and the thicker the thickness will be.
