What is UV printing?
The advantages of UV printing
1. Using printing directly on print and directly on objects gives you the flexibility you need to quickly and easily print customized designs on a variety of products. In addition, each UV printer comes with excellent customer service and software, so you can get the training and support you need to maintain smooth production operation.
2. Due to the fact that UV printers use UV lamps to fix a printed image, no solvents are used. This means that this method of printing requires no ventilation. Optimize drying time, the ink is dry the second it comes off the press, allowing you to fold, bind or perform any other finishing operations almost straight away.
3. All UV printers can be used with a variety of different materials, including paper and non-paper substrates. UV-cured ink is less prone to scratches, fading, scuffs, or smudges during handling and transportation process. The UV printing process is kinder to the environment. Because UV-cured inks are not solvent-based, there are no harmful substances to evaporate.
4. Enjoy sharper, crisp and more vibrant results. However, one of the main advantages of UV printing is the quality of the printing results. Printing done on a UV printer is much better quality, as the ink does not have a chance to absorb or spread due to the rapid drying time.

Our easy to use Print Factory raster image processor (RIP) allows users to edit the graphics and create spot colors easily. As a result, users can avoid using multiple software programs and print directly using the Print Factory RIP.
UV DTF PRINTING
What is UV DTF printing?
UV DTF Printer or Conventional UV printer
However, the UV DTF printing is to print the patterns on the PET film. By adding the glue, the transfer film and PET film are sticker together. When finish the printing, you will get the patterns in the two films. Then, you peel out the transfer film and press the PET film with your fingers for seconds. Finally, you carefully peel out the other PET film left on the pattern. You will surprised to find that the patterns had been transferred into the objects with smooth surface successfully. Solvent ink is widely used in traditional printing. This is not the environmental friendly option – because they will Evaporate into the air and release volatile organic compounds. Traditional printing usually need extra spray powder to help the patterns dry, because they are absorbed into the paper, the color will fade and less bright. Depending on the properties and weight of the paper, drying can increase each work by several days. Traditional ink must be absorbed by the substrate printed on them, so you’d better not use them on materials such as plastic, foil or acrylic.
Difference Between UV DTF & DTF .
Compared with DTF printing, DTF requires a DTF printer, a shake powder machine and a heat press. UV DTF requires a UV flatbed printer and a laminating machine. DTF is mainly used for the transfer of fabrics, the new technology is mainly used for the transfer of hard materials. Also, UV DTF printing requires a UV LED flatbed printer and two kinds of films – PET film and transfer film. It uses UV hard ink. This process needs to print C/M/Y/K/W color ink, varnish and a special glue to achieve the best effect.
How to do UV DTF printing, please follow the steps below:
1. Print the pattern on film A.
2. After printing, use a laminating machine to compress film A and film B, it can also be operated manually.
3. Cut out the pattern and paste it on the material to be pasted.
4. Press the pattern repeatedly, slowly peel off the film then finished.
