UV Led printing

 

This method is a type of digital printing that utilizes ultraviolet lights to dry up ink during the printing process. While the printer produces ink on the surface of the object (also called a "substrate"), the specially made UV lights will follow close behind, drying the ink immediately. This method was first developed for quick-dry gel nail polishes. It was then expanded into other industries around the world.

Pros

  • Finer details are obtained through UV printing because the dots of wet ink don’t have a chance to spread out once printed;
  • UV prints are more resilient to environmental factors and fade more slowly;
  • Does not use solvent inks that release harmful compounds, like the traditional printing method;
  • It speeds up production time and delivers higher quality prints;
  • UV printers can accommodate oddly-shaped objects.

Cons

  • The high upfront cost of the printer;
  • Does not produce good results on silicone substrate;
  • Not suitable for items that are subjected to repeated dish washing, such as drink ware;
  • Not suitable for garments;
  • Has a big learning curve for printing operators.

This method can be used to print on almost anything, but is not recommended for items that require frequent washing at high temperature.
