What exactly are UV-LED printers?

UV-LED printers jet a curable ink through an inkjet print head. Printers are equipped with a UV-LED lamp(s) that offer instant curing of the digitally printed image. The instant curing and durability of the inks allow operators to print on a wide variety of substrates. In addition to photo-quality prints, higher amounts of ink can be jetted to produce texture or raised printing effects that provide a dimensional (tactile) print.

As it is a digital process, UV-LED printers provide all the ease and short-run profitability that can’t be matched by analog technologies. Whether it’s a one-up job or thousands of printed products, UV-LED printers are seen as an optimal and durable solution in numerous industries.
