UV inks cure instantly, greatly simplifying printing especially on non-absorbent materials such as plastic films or metalized papers. Therefore products can be finished more rapidly, enabling higher throughput and turnaround, even on two-sided jobs.
UV printing is notable for its results. It can achieve great outcomes on difficult substrates, from uncoated paper and board to foil and especially plastic, including synthetic papers, static cling vinyl and lenticular. UV inks also perform exceptionally well on recycled products.
Unlike conventional offset inks, energy-curable UV inks are solventfree and dry via exposure to high-energy electrical power, a process that generates no by-products and is free of emissions.
Sounds great!… but UV printing is not for everyone. Challenges include cost-containment – plants need to do ROI analysis to determine the practical wisdom of moving to UV. A correctly equipped UV press usually costs more than a conventional press.
Discussions at this seminar will include:
