What are a UV Inkjet Printer’s Capabilities?
Inkjet printing equipment can print full-color images at incredible detail direct from a digital image. Inkjet printing gives the operator the flexibility to change over artwork on the fly. In addition, inkjet printing is great for product sampling, short-runs, and personalization. While a wide variety of inkjet printing equipment exists, some utilize an ink cartridge system, however, most offer a bulk ink system that allows for longer, continuous printing. Printing large images is best suited on an inkjet printing machine because of the extremely large print area. Fine detailed images and text are also best suited for inkjet printing because a machine can print up to 1200 dots per inch (dpi).
What are a UV Inkjet Printer’s Limitations?
An inkjet printer is best suited for flat or slightly-curved parts. The reason is due to the print head’s distance away from the part, the closer the head is to the substrate, the greater the detail. Speed is also a factor when it comes to industrial production runs. Other types of printing equipment may be best suited if speed over quality is required. With continuous innovation in the inkjet printing industry, the limitations of what a machine can accomplish are diminishing day by day.
