UV PRINTING

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, 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 !ner detail. This curing process is more environment friendly as it produces few VOC’s, odor, and heat. UV curing also allows the “atbed printer to be used with non-traditional materials like acrylic or aluminum. In fact, this UV “atbed printer is compatible with most substrates up to 2” thick.
