UV printers are used for everything from printing credit cards to creating large industrial signs. The UV printer creates a faster, more effective method for printing any type of material. It offers a new and innovative way to print high-quality materials, which means there are many benefits to owning your own UV printer. Besides offering fast curing speeds and flexibility in printing, UV printers also offer a high-quality output. When compared to conventional printing, UV printing offers far more benefits.
It is still just ink on paper, but the method used in UV printing provides photomechanical drying methods. This means that the ink dries the moment it comes off the press, eliminating the need to wait for the ink to dry for proofing.
The ink used in UV printing also helps to reduce absorption into the material, which saves on ink. Materials printed with a UV printer also have more durability than those printed with a conventional printer because the ink is less susceptible to scratching, fading or normal wear and tear.
UV printing allows you to print on almost any surface, whether it is absorbent or not. This translates to thousands of possibilities for commercial printing. There is no need for a double pass when using a UV printer. Since the ink sits on the material instead of being absorbed into it, it creates a perfectly crisp finished product.
UV printing machines save your company time and money. The finished product produced from UV printing is high quality, durable and affordable. Thanks to quick drying times and no need for a double pass, press checks are quick, allowing you to move on to the binding and finishing stages without having to wait.
