Why is it called a UV printer?

Table Of Contents

The earliest name of this name cannot be verified, and it is impossible to say which company and person started the name of the UV printer. Of course, the emergence of this kind of equipment is not out of thin air. It is extended from inkjet printers and photo printers. It is separated from the printing of coil materials and is mainly used in pattern printing of flat materials.

The early uv printers were relatively backward, and most of them were disassembled and refitted from the photo machine. At that time, Epson’s fifth-generation nozzles were also commonly used. With the development of technology, there were more Seiko nozzles, Konica nozzles, Ricoh nozzles, and other types of heads…

As for the UV printer, there are three main reasons:

1, uv refers to the meaning of ultraviolet rays

The word uv means that the UV ink used in the equipment is a liquid consumable, not a solid, or a powder particle. This special ink curing relies on the ultraviolet light waves emitted by the LED lamp to react with the photosensitive curing machine in the ink, which is different from the traditional heat drying and natural drying process. Of course, the price is also higher than other printing consumables.

2. As for the printer, it uses the principle of piezoelectric inkjet printing

The pattern is realized by printing. It can also be seen from the side that compared with the efficiency of silk screen printing, the printing speed of uv printers is actually slow. Print patterns mainly in the field of short-run digital printing.

3. Simple and easy to remember

Printers are well known, and it is expected that it will be difficult for everyone to understand the name. It is better to add two letters in front, which is more conducive to communication.

In addition to the name of UV printer, there are dozens of hundreds of names such as UV flatbed printers, UV roll machines, UV inkjet printers, glass printers, tile printers, etc. in the market. They are all the same in essence, and the difference lies in different materials. The names of the printed patterns are different, and the printed materials are divided into flat plates and coiled materials.
