What are the disadvantages of UV printer? UV printer is a digital printer widely used in printing, signage, furniture, decoration and other fields, featuring high speed, high quality and variety. However, like any technology, UV printers have their drawbacks. This article will introduce some disadvantages of UV printer and provide some ways to solve them.
1. Material restrictions
UV printer needs to apply coatings or inks in a special way to print, so only materials suitable for specific UV printers can be printed. This means that some special materials may not be suitable for UV printers. Therefore, when choosing a UV printer, you need to carefully consider the type of material that needs to be printed.
2. Monotone colors
The color range of UV printer is limited and cannot display too many color levels. Due to its weak color positioning ability, the gloss and color of UV print may not be as good as other digital printers. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the color and the number of colors required for UV printing when designing.
3. Environmental issues
UV printer needs to use a lot of chemicals in the printing process, such as coatings, solvents, etc. These substances will produce some harmful substances and pollute the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to set up UV printer in a suitable place, use chemicals in strict accordance with the operating procedures, and prevent damage to the environment.
4. High cost
The price of UV printer will be higher compared to other digital printers, because it has some special technologies, such as UV curing and high resolution. At the same time, UV printing requires the use of special consumables and inks, and its cost is relatively high. This means that the cost of using a UV printer is relatively high, and production planning needs to be reasonably arranged.
In order to solve these problems, we can take the following measures:
1. Select the material suitable for UV printer;
2. Redesign the materials to be printed to make them more in line with the requirements of UV printer;
3. Strictly abide by the operating procedures, use chemical substances correctly, and reduce environmental pollution;
4. Reasonably arrange the production plan, reduce the frequency of use of UV printer, and reduce costs.
To sum up, although UV printer has the advantages of high speed, high quality, and variety, there are also some unavoidable shortcomings in practical applications. Only by carefully discovering and analyzing problems and taking corresponding improvement measures can we make better use of the advantages of UV printers, improve production efficiency and quality, and reduce production costs.
