Why is it called a uv printer
The earliest name of the name cannot be verified, nor can it be said which company and who started the UV printer. Of course, the emergence of this kind of equipment is not a vacuum, it is extended from inkjet printers and photo printers. It is separate from the printing of rolls and focuses on the printing of patterns on flat materials.
Early UV printers were relatively backward, most of which were disassembled and modified from photo machines. Epson's fifth-generation nozzles were also commonly used at that time. With the development of technology, Seiko nozzles, Konica nozzles, Ricoh nozzles and other types of nozzle equipment were added. .
As for the UV printer, there are three main reasons:
1. The word UV refers to the UV ink used by the device as a liquid consumable, not a solid or powdery particle. This special ink curing relies on the ultraviolet light emitted from the LED lamp to react with the photosensitive curing machine in the ink, which is different from the traditional heat drying and natural air drying process. Of course, the price is higher than other printing supplies.
2. As for the printer, it refers to the principle of piezoelectric inkjet printing, and the pattern is realized by printing. It can also be seen from the side that compared to the efficiency of silk screen printing, in fact, the printing speed of UV printers is slow. Print patterns mainly in the field of short-run digital printing.
3. Simple and easy to remember. Printers are well known. It is expected that everyone will not understand the name easily. It is better to add two letters in front of it, which is more conducive to dissemination.
In addition to the name uv printer, there are dozens of hundreds of titles in the market, such as uv flatbed printers, uv coil printers, uv inkjet printers, glass printers, tile printers, etc., which are essentially the same, the difference lies in different materials. The names of printed patterns are different, and the printed materials are distinguished by flat plates and rolls.
