How to distinguish the accuracy of UV flatbed printer?

Table Of Contents

Many customers who buy flatbed printers have the problem that they do not know how to distinguish the performance and accuracy of the machine after buying the machine. Many manufacturers will not directly tell the customer how to distinguish the performance and accuracy of the machine. The accuracy of the uv printer is mainly It is determined by two parts – the flatbed uv printer itself and the printer software. Here are some ways to distinguish the accuracy of uv printers.

How to distinguish the accuracy of uv printers?

1. The machine itself

1) Repeated printing (no movement, high precision)

Hit a “cross” and repeat the heavy-duty printing 3-10 times, and it can be completely overlapped, indicating that the flatbed printer does not move, the accuracy is high, the machine is OK, and vice versa PASS.

2) Small print (discrimination accuracy)

The number three characters set in PHOTOSHOP, CORELDRAW, or AI are printed out in the UV machine printer. Use a magnifying glass to see if there is any ghosting. If there is no ghosting, it means that the accuracy of the flatbed printer is high, and the machine is OK. Otherwise, this device The accuracy is questionable, the direct PASS.

2. Software

It should be able to provide ICC and ICM curve software for color matching, as well as RIP software such as printing white ink.

3. Ink

First, the inks used in flatbed printers are different from those used in ordinary home or office use. Secondly, the ink of the flatbed printer mainly considers the following factors:

1) Fluency of ink

The ink with good fluency will not block the printer nozzle. After half a month, the nozzle is still open.

Ink with poor fluency will be blocked on the same day it is put on the machine, and some are blocked so thoroughly that you can’t clean it even if you want to clean it, which means that the nozzle has been “reimbursed”.

2) The reducibility of ink color

You can use the printed image effect to compare with the image on the monitor, the closer it is, the better the reducibility and vividness of the ink. Why say closer, not exactly the same? Most of the displays used by customers are either liquid crystal displays or ordinary CRTs. Due to its working principle, the LCD display has deviations in the display of colors, and sometimes the deviation is very large. Therefore, it is recommended not to use LCD displays; ordinary CRTs cannot display the same effect on images, unless Professional CRT monitors and related professional settings, but the price is also more expensive.
