As less heat is dissipated from a LED lamp, it is easier to keep the media flat under the shuttle, so printing on wax is easier because the printer is not melting the substrate. Less operating heat also prevents material distortion, making it easier to rewind and re-register colors. And because of the uniformity and long-term consistency of LED lights, designers can develop safer, more stable and more reliable processes for low-migration printing.

The light sources deliver high uniformity and consistency over time, giving the end user confidence in the quality of the process. Now that UV LED curing has gained worldwide acceptance, more and more users are recognizing the real-world benefits.

Understanding the artis BR U1800 print and software

How to print on bottles? Are you ready to get started? Follow these easy to use steps to begin.

artis BR U1800 gives you unlimited substrate color choices so you don’t have to settle for only printing on white or light colored cylindrical objects. Simply select the desired artwork size and preferred color settings, load your product into the rotary fixture and you’re ready to print.

The first step is the adjustment of the rotary attachment (1). Put the media on the rollers and ensure the line at the highest point of the media shall be distanced about 5 mm away from the back of center line of the ink pump. This is necessary to follow to avoid ink spray from the print head when printing on the arc of bottles. The next step is to drive installation of the software for bottle printing.

There are a few characteristics of software setting: The printing resolution is 1440*1440 dpi; Bottle print only refers to three print types: Color only, White & Color only, White & Color simultaneously; (INK: CMYK- Optional for color only; White: Optional for white only or White & Color simultaneously.)

White Mode: It decides the way of printing white ink as a background layer.

artisJet’s RIP software allows the setup of white ink based on the printing requirements. One of these requirements is to: print white inks according to the nature of the bottle’s substrate color (dark or light). The darker the substrate, the more white inks.

Another white ink setup capability is White (Simulate Spot Color): whenever there is color element, white inks will be printed, with the same volume. Add to this, the White Density allows you to adjust the volume of white inks, while the White Channel num can adjust the concentration of the white inks.

White and color relation: This can change print mode for white and color inks. White only: Optional for white only; Two layer: White+ Color print at on pass (color follows White); Two layer: White+ Color print at on pass (White follows Color).

White invaginate: This is capable of covering white edge. Choose “Big” to avoid white edge when printing white and color simultaneously. Make a difference in covering the whole white edge.

For a better understanding we want to show you two cases of printing:
1.White bottle for color only;
2.Transparent bottle for white& color simultaneously.

For first case steps:

a) Measure the circumference of body of bottle and height of artwork. Make the artwork size within the circumference (figure 2).
b) Input the artwork into Rip software and set up its size and location. Pay attention to: print direction and print location. The setup software should have the follow ticks: INK-CMYK; White Invaginate- Big; Feather- Auto.
c) Adjust the height of bottle according to print head (Attention: Adjust manually the height of bottle a little far away from the print head to ensure no collision.)
d) Start printing.

Case 2 (figure 3): same steps less the software setup. You have to choose: Ink- white; white mode- white (simulate spot color); white channel rum-4; white & color relation- two layer, base white.

It’s time to bring your personalized products to life by using amazing, high quality, full vivid colors direct-to-substrate printing with artisJet and its bottle printing attachment of artis BR U1800, 360 degrees printing on a wide range of substrates, user-friendly print settings and functions via artisRIP v 9.0 software.

UV VARNISH AND SPOT LED UV VARNISH

Is UV Varnish the same thing as Spot LED UV Varnish, or is it something else altogether?
While many people use the word varnish as a catch-all concept, you must know there are varnishes (clear inks), aqueous coatings (water-based), and UV coatings.
UV Varnish is nearly instantly cured by UV light, but usually it fully covers the substrate, acting as a protective layer.

Spot LED UV Varnish is a clear ink that implies partial coverage on the chosen spots or area of the printed surface. With the Spot LED UV varnishing, the LED UV inks will highlight specific texts or images, logos, and anything else you want to drag the attention to.
When the Spot LED UV Varnish is applied, it creates an elegant gloss effect (or matte effect, depending on the printing needs) which contrasts with the rest of the printed sheet or substrate and gives an attractive look to the printed item.

It can be successfully used for wood printing, business cards printing, wedding invitations and wedding cards printing, packaging printing, interior design items such as photo frames and wall decorations, special gift ideas, promotional items, corporate items, gift boxes, cosmetic packaging boxes, luxury paper bags, phone cases, personalized mobile accessories, book covers printing, brand logo printing on boxes to much more.

WHAT IS VARNISH?

Varnish ink allows you to enhance and protect the quality of the printed image, artwork, text or logo. It’s mainly clear and can be applied either before or after the printing work.

Varnish is considered to be one of the best methods available to enhance the appearance of a printed substrate. You can see the difference once you apply the UV varnish ink and you can add profits to your bottom line.

Its use brings value in every aspect of the printing industry. Varnish is basically clear ink and can give glossy, satin or matte printing finishes. You can add varnish to the printing area for shiny effect or to highlight specific areas of a printed piece by adding depth to a logo or image.

APPLICATIONS OF DIRECT VARNISH PRINTING

The glossy varnish offers a smooth, shiny and glossy surface of the printed substrate. In the sunshine, the surface reflects light and that is why the printed media has the very bright and lustrous color. A glossy varnish increases the saturation and depth of colors while improving image contrast and adding anti-scratch features.

Moreover, it provides excellent protective quality as well as a raised touchable effect as the 3D embossed effect and Braille tactile effect, often used in direct to signage printing.

A matte varnish is the most popular finish used for printing different products such as wood frames, wood packaging and many more. Using a matte varnish in the case of imagery printing tends to soften the image, giving it a vintage matte look as well as a lush tactile quality to the printing surface.

ARTISJET DIGITAL LED UV VARNISH PRINTING BENEFITS

Varnish can be printed first, as a base for the CMYK colors to ensure color performance and even raised effect. Also, it can be applied after the artwork colors were printed to provide a glossy look or vintage matte finish, depending on what result you aim for.

Believe it or not, varnishing makes easy to clean and handle a LED UV digitally printed image. To sustain this idea, find out that varnishing can offer durable prints by making them water resistant prints. Being able to splash water on a varnish printed item can add value for customers because this way they have the possibility to print applications such as direct LED UV signage printing that can last longer even outdoors.

By varnish printing, the colors appear noticeably richer and vibrant and add the benefit of the fast drying of print on the production line due to LED UV drying process.
Another important feature for varnish printing is that the varnishing is typically cost effective.

No matter the effect you aim to achieve from varnish printing, you have to take advantage of the features from this type of printing and incorporate it to your business.
