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. Originally developed for quickly drying gel nail polishes during manicures, ultraviolet light applications quickly expanded into industrial and commercial markets. 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
UV curing was first applied to industrial production in 1960s, especially it is good for curing of the surface coating of wood. Afterwards, U.S. first time make UV applied to flatbed printing and get good effect. Then this technology was gradually spreaded to U.K. and other countries. UV curing technology has already to applied to various printing method and adapt all kinds of modes, such as relief block, Flexo, lithographic plate, screen printing plate, it replaces many outdated traditional printing method, it saves human resources and material resources, then create the most value.
Some of the outcomes of using UV printing include：
The color of picture which printed by UV Printer is satisifying , it’s very bright, it has good visual effect and more fresh feeling than old mode printing method.
UV printing method can print on the surface of all kinds of materials by UV ink, it expands application range of UV printing machine. Now it has already applied to paper, paper board, plastic cement, the road network, PVC, PE and so on. It has good market share and continuously expanding sales range and application fields.
UV Printer can rapidly cure and dry printing design. It greatly improve working efficiency, increase production, shorten working period. You can also take advantage of ink, saving cost.
UV Printer will rapidly solidify and dry after the printing design is finished. The color can not easily fade and don’t need spray powder and other desiccant, the design can be protected from damage..
There is no any pollution material during the production of UV Printer, it is environment friendly and the UV ink has little to none effects to the body.
