In the past few years, the term of UV printing has become more popular and we are seeing more products hitting the market. The Prinsystech PST250 UV Printer is one of them. Let’s check out some features of the printer and how it is better than conventional printers.
UV Printer vs Conventional Printer
The printers that we are using every day to print on paper are the most common ones. However, they have some limitations due to the fact that they use solvent inks which will evaporate into the air and be absorbed into the paper. Therefore, the printing quality is always a concern and it doesn’t work well with most other materials.
On the other hand, UV printers use UV inks which will be turned from liquid to solid instantly while being exposed to UV lights. Therefore, there is little evaporation and absorption into the printing material. Consequently, the printers can be used to print on most materials, including plastic, foil, and acrylics. Another huge advantage is that the details of your image would be retained since the ink doesn’t have a chance to spread out. Besides, your printing is water-resistant and doesn’t fade out much by time.
The UV printer helps us print directly onto substrates like acrylic, PVC card, or ceramic with an impressive speed and amazing details while being more eco-friendly during printing processes.
PST Jet 250 UV Printer Features
The printer allows us to print directly on virtually any solid material and object with the thickness of up to 10 cm. It is ideal to make personalized gifts, awards, labels, decals, signs, packaging, etc. It offers a print table area of 290mm x 550mm.
If you use it on materials like metal, glass, or ceramic, it’s recommended to use a primer to increase adhesion.
The printer is equipped with an energy-efficient LED UV lamp which can reduce working temperature and allow us to print on heat-sensitive substrates. Its lifespan could reach up to 10,000 hours.
The final output will always be sharp and meet requirements of most customers. You can check out some samples here.
