The size of UV flatbed printers in the industry generally refers to the printing size of the equipment, not the appearance size of the whole machine. The two are obviously different, the appearance size of the machine is much larger than the printing size. Novices who understand this for the first time are often confused by the numbers in front of the model. it’s actually really easy.
Take 2513 as an example, where the first two digits of the number 25 refer to the printing width of the equipment (note that it is not the length) of 2.5m, and 13 refers to the printing length of 1.3m. By analogy, 2533 refers to the printing format of 2.5m*3.3m, and 1610 refers to the printing format of 1.6m*1m…
One thing to keep in mind is that the width of the printing directly affects the printing efficiency of the equipment and the quality of the workmanship of other parts. The smaller the width of the UV flatbed printer, the slower the printing speed, and the quality of the corresponding parts is relatively cheap. Under the same nozzle configuration, the printing mode remains unchanged. The speed of the 2513 model is twice as fast as that of the 1325, which is determined by the width and length.
This size naming method is limited to the original UV flatbed printer. If it is an early modified device, it will be called a4, a3, a2, a1, a0, etc. Among them, a4 refers to the printing format of 210mm×297mm, a3 refers to the printing format of 297mm×420mm, a2 refers to the printing format of 420mm×594mm, and a1 refers to the printing format of 594mm×841mm… Different companies will change about 3-5 cm in this format.
The size of the UV flatbed printer often determines the configuration of the nozzle. The longer the width of the equipment, the higher the grade and the more the number of heads configured, otherwise it will be overkill. The shorter the width of the equipment, the fewer the number of heads and the lower the grade, which are often civilian heads. Take the 1325 model and 2513 equipment on the market as an example, the 1325 generally costs between USD8500-USD15000, while the 2513 model generally costs between USD17000-USD3400.
