The difference between digital inkjet printer and UV flatbed printer

In the advertising industry, we must be familiar with digital inkjet printer and UV flatbed printer. Digital inkjet printer is the main print output devices in the advertising industry, while UV flatbed printer is for harder plates. The abbreviation is a technology printed by ultraviolet rays. Today I will focus on the differences and advantages of the two.


The first is the digital inkjet printer. The digital inkjet printer is used as the main print output device in the advertising inkjet industry. It is also an indispensable printing device in advertising production, especially the piezoelectric photo machine. In addition to the traditional advertising inkjet printing applications, it is also widely used in other industries, such as wallpaper decoration, oil painting, thermal transfer of leather and cloth, etc. There are many media that can be printed. It can be said that all soft media (such as rolls) can be perfectly printed as long as the thickness is less than the maximum height of the printhead. However, if it is a hard material, the printing of the digital inkjet printer is not applicable, because the printing platform is not suitable for the printing of hard and thick board materials.


For hard plates, you need to use a UV flatbed printer. The UV flatbed printer can be said a new product. It can be compatible with more printing materials. Printing through UV ink makes the printed images rich in stereo. It has the characteristics of vivid feeling, and colorful printed patterns. It has the characteristics of waterproof, sun protection, wear resistance, and never fades. At the same time, it is suitable for soft and hard materials. It is not subject to any material restrictions. It can be printed on the surface of wood, glass, crystal, PVC, ABS, acrylic, metal, plastic, stone, leather, cloth, rice paper and other textiles print. Whether it is a simple block color pattern, a full-color pattern or a pattern with excessive color, it can be printed at one time without the need for plate making, no printing and repeated color registration, and the application field is very wide.

Flatbed printing is to apply a layer of protective gloss on the product, to ensure the brightness and avoid moisture corrosion, friction and scratches, so the printed product has a longer life and more environmentally friendly, and I believe that UV flatbed printer will be the mainstream printing equipment in the future.
