Typical Applications

Typical flatbed printing applications include;

  • Signs and poster boards.
  • Point-of-purchase displays.
  • Exhibition graphics/signs.
  • Backlit panels.
  • Interior decor.
  • Packaging prototypes.
  • Specialty and industrial applications.
  • Acrylics.
  • Polycarbonates.

Application versatility offers a wider variety of media choices.

The capability to print on media and substrates up to 50mm thick,
along with a 2500mm x 1300mm bed size, allows for a diverse range of printing
options. UV inks are durable in both indoor and outdoor conditions
and offer a high level of abrasion resistance.

What is UV Printing

Flatbed printing is the reproduction of digital images, typically on plastic or paperboard, although a wide variety of materials can be printed ( acrylics, foamboard, ABS Plastic, Glass and wood).

UV Flatbed printers use inks made of acrylic monomers that are then exposed to strong UV-light to cure, or polymerize them. This process allows for printing on a wide variety of surfaces such as wood or metal, carpet, tile, and even glass.

The adjustable print head makes it possible to print on surfaces ranging in thickness from a sheet of paper often up to as much as 100 mm.

Typically used for commercial applications (retail and event signage), flatbed printing is often a substitute for screen-printing. Since no printing plates or silkscreens must be produced, digital printing technology allows shorter runs of signs to be produced economically.

Kind on the Environment

Environmentally, flatbed digital printing is based on a more sustainable system than its commercial predecessor of solvent printing as it produces fewer waste cartridges and less indoor air pollution.The resolution of flatbed printers range from 72 DPI (dots per inch) to about 1700 DPI.

The main advantage of a flatbed printer is the variety in printable materials although this is limited to only flat materials.
