Expand into the Growing Market of UV-LED Printing

Michael Perrelli, Direct Color Systems, shares insight on the value of this developing technology.

The goal for most UV-LED printer owners is to leverage the technology to add value (profit) to a certain product or group of products. Others use it to make current processes better or more efficient. OK, you might say, “That’s awesome, but what’s new? Can I print faster, better, and more profitable products than I could a few years ago?” The answer to that question is yes. Though still young when compared to other technologies, UV-LED printer applications and advancements are developed and released at a rapid rate.

Recent developments in ink formulations have seen the advent of flexible and stretchable ink options for UV-LED printers. These options have opened up new application and product streams that weren’t available for this technology a few short years ago. Whether it’s leather, T-shirts, or foam rafts, flexible inks have opened completely new revenue streams for some printer owners.
