Wide format uv digital printer-how to adjust the ink thickness of it?

Wide format uv digital printers are becoming more and more popular in the digital printing market, but friends who have just entered the industry will be more or less unfamiliar with UV printers, although UV printers have many advantages compared with traditional machines. On the other hand, many manufacturers are still in the period of exploring and summing up experience for newly purchased UV flatbed printers, and the quality of UV printers is still very testable. This article will introduce whether the UV printer can change the ink thickness, how to change it, and what is the detailed method.

1. In the printing software, the UV inkjet printer can set the percentage of the inkjet volume and the number of printing passes, and then change the ink thickness. This has the advantages of saving ink on the one hand, and improving the quality of printing on the other.

2. UV printers set the ink thickness in advance, and an auxiliary function is the percentage of feathering, usually between 0%-200%. If the pattern printed by the system becomes more delicate and the color becomes richer, the feathering function needs to be registered. The larger the value, the better the printed effect. Similarly, the production speed will also be reduced, and the details should be determined according to the actual needs of users.

3. Domestic UV printing machines are usually four-color, and industrial equipment standards are six-color and eight-color. Adjusting the thickness of the ink mainly depends on three factors. The first is the variety and background color of the raw materials. If the raw material has a softer appearance, large gaps, and a darker background color, the ink volume needs to be increased by 20%-40%. The second is the request to look at the image. If the color of the image is darker and the color is more beautiful, the appropriate ink thickness is required. If you are seeking relief 3D effect, you need to add the thickness of white ink.

4. It should be noted that the ink thickness of the UV flatbed printer is not the thicker the better. If the setting is unreasonable, it will affect the color quality of the print.
