Where can we use UV digital printing?

Firstly, what is UV printing? what difference between UV printing and other method printing technology? UV printing is a form of digital printing that uses ultra-violet lights to dry or cure ink as it is printed. As the printer distributes ink on the surface of a material (called a "substrate"), specially designed UV lights follow close behind, curing - or drying - the ink instantly. Because the UV lights cure any printed ink immediately, the dots of wet ink do not get a chance to spread out once printed, resulting in much finer detail. In addition, UV cured inks are weather-resistant and offer increased resistance to fading. This curing process is more environmentally friendly as it produces few VOC's, odor, and heat. UV curing also allows the flatbed printer to be used with nontraditional materials like acrylic or aluminum.
Benefits of using UV printing technology
  1. Print on a far broader range of substrates. Unlike many other printing processes, UV-curing bonds the ink to almost any surface. I’ve had conversations with operators who’ve printed on some pretty unusual surfaces — from hand-made canvas and CD’s to concrete, wood, metal, plastic and ceramic tiles. I even heard a story involving toast. It worked!
  1. Open the door to a new world of creative possibilities. The versatility of UV printers offers huge creative potential for your business and clients. Use UV printers for indoor, outdoor and backlit signs, POPs, posters, vehicle wraps, building wraps, cabinets, etc.
  2. Say goodbye to pre-treating surfaces and coated papers. UV-curable inks offer optimal adhesion without the need for pre-coating and that saves time. Buying non-treated substrate also translates into a cost savings for you. The only exception to this rule is printing on glass. A UV printer can handle glass, but a pre-treatment or primer is needed for a permanent bond
  3. Faster drying time means faster production speeds. Don’t discredit this technology as “niche” just because it offers so many ‘creative’ possibilities. The UV process is still made for output and can pump out sign graphic production with impressive speed and accuracy. UV inks cure almost instantly, depending on the ink color and intensity of the UV light. This translates into high operating speeds
  4. Print multiple color layers at the same time. UV flatbed printers keep the media stationary and instead the gantry, which holds the print heads, moves over the media. This allows for multiple layers of printing simultaneously including white ink or spot varnishes on highlighted areas of the media.
Now do you know why more and more people choose UV printing? If there is a chance, you can also invest a UV printer and seize this opportunity.
