Analyze the prospects of the uv printer industry

  • If you want to know the industry prospects of uv printers, you must first understand what it is, what it can do, and are the applicable industries wide enough? When you understand these issues, you can clearly know whether it is suitable for your business development and where are the new profit points? In which industry, the type of business is most likely to usher in rapid development, so as to seize the opportunity.
    Because of this, let's not talk about whether our business and uv printers complement each other, or are an upgrade to the current business use. Let's first understand what a uv printer is?


    The uv flatbed printer uses voltage-type inkjet technology to spray ink onto the material through precise nozzle technology and then combine to form a pattern. This technology not only improves the printing effect, but also greatly improves the printing efficiency compared to traditional printing. UV flatbed printers are not restricted by any material, and can print on glass, acrylic, crystal, PVC, ABS, ceramic, wood, metal, plastic, stone, leather and other surfaces. Whether it is a simple block color pattern, a full-color pattern or a pattern with transitional colors, to a three-dimensional pattern and an embossed pattern, it can be printed at one time without the need for plate making, printing and repeated color registration. The colors are beautiful and rich, and the effect is realistic. The image is waterproof, sunscreen, abrasion resistant, non-fading, simple and convenient to operate, and the printing image speed is fast, which fully meets the printing needs of the market.
    This is the simplest and most intuitive description I think of uv printers. Let's continue to learn more.

    1. The core of the uv printer device itself
    1. The core components of the uv nozzle (the most important nozzle). At the beginning of the uv printer, Epson nozzles were the mainstream of the nozzles. This type of nozzles was a small nozzle with a slower printing speed. Later, various industrial-grade nozzles were slowly introduced, and the speed was improved. UV printers have always been based on Ricoh industrial nozzles, and the future trend is also toward industrialization.

    2. Ink type. The early flatbed printer inks used solvent-based and water-based inks, and then gradually developed into UV inks. The relative advantage of UV inks is that they are UV-resistant, waterproof and more durable. UV printers use environmentally friendly UV ink, and the future direction of ink development is to combine the advantages of solvent-based, water-based, and uv.

    3. Number of nozzles. In the early days, flatbed printers were mostly modified machines, with smaller models and fewer print heads, usually 6-10, with slow printing speed. Nowadays UV flatbed printers have developed to four rows of print heads, with 32 print heads. , The future development will be more.

    4. Print format. The early flatbed printers had a small format, and most of the print sizes were A1, A2, A3, A4. Today's print format has developed to 2m, 3m, 4m, 5m wide large format flatbed printers, UV flatbed printers in the future The printing format will be larger and the printing function will be more complete.

    2. Materials that can be printed by uv printer
    1. The printing materials of the early flatbed printers could only be materials with low surface density. Now the equipment printing materials have developed to various hard, soft, finished products and other materials, such as metal, ceramic tiles, glass, silica gel, carpet, acrylic, and mobile phones. Print patterns directly on shells, umbrellas, etc.

    2. The printing materials of the early flatbed printers can only be flat materials. The current equipment printing materials can be relatively flat materials. Ordinary uv printers can print with a drop of 7mm. The Seiko high drop nozzles developed by uv printers can print with a drop of up to 15mm. In the future The development of the printing gap will be higher. Some flatbed printers realize printing on circular objects, and the future development prospects will realize printing patterns on various irregular materials.
    The current uv printer equipment has gradually penetrated into the textile field and precision instrument field. The future industry application trend will cover more extensively the types of silk screen and pad printing materials.

    Three, uv printer can be applied to industries
    The market prospects of uv printers are widely used and can be used in various industries:

    1. Home improvement industry: such as background walls, suspended ceilings, entrances, floors, boards, cabinets, furniture, electrical appliances;

    2. Building materials industry: such as ceramic tiles, glass, integrated boards;

    3. Electronic product industry: such as mobile phone cases, power banks, CDs;

    4. Advertising industry: materials such as acrylic, signs, Wantong boards, PP boards, etc.;

    5. Leather industry: leather bags, genuine leather, fake leather;

    In addition, there are handicraft industry, metal industry, etc., in the future, it may even be more widely covered in the types of silk screen and pad printing materials.
    Seeing this, you must have already thought of how to use uv printers to combine with your mature business.
    I believe that as long as people who have been in the printing industry for many years see the application of uv printers, I think you will have a lot of ideas for developing new businesses. The so-called impermanence and flexibility are the source of profits.
