For several years now, inkjet printing has been an integral part of the international print market. It boasts a number of advantages in comparison to the more traditional printing processes – especially for UV users. Equally UV systems as well as LED and IR systems are used for curing technology. The most varied of materials can be printed, with options stretching far beyond simply paper or cardboard.
The main difference between inkjet printing and other printing processes is that there is no printing form required for transferring the image to the material. The image is printed directly and contact-free onto the substrate. This is done using what is known as a “Computer-to-Print” process.
UV technology makes it possible to print across a wide substrate spectrum. The split-second curing of the ink means products can be processed immediately afterwards. UV systems also boast high process reliability and limited print quantities can be produced economically.
