Versatility in a UV Roll-based Printer
The UCJV300-160 model can produce a wide variety of applications, from backlits to window clings and nearly anything in between. UV-LED curing technology enables print service providers to use a wider range of media that may be too sensitive for latex or solvent systems that require heat to fix the ink.
One Graphic, Two Views
Four-layer printing – color, black, white, color – offers an enhanced print capability that allows designers to build layered transformative graphics for backlit applications. This gives you the opportunity to offer something unique – a dynamic graphic that ‘changes’ its image or color scheme depending on the light source. This distinctive capability means you can produce high impact, premium margin output while maintaining low operational costs and reducing production time.
Integrated Cutting Capability
The integrated cut functionality enables volume production of labels, decals, window clings, floor graphics, POP displays, vehicle markings, packaging and prototypes, and more in a single unit. Additionally, the ability to pre-cut before printing prevents common problems such as film separation and other issues related to post-cutting on thin materials.
Instant-dry for Instant Use
UCJV300-160 prints are instantly-cured at even the highest production speeds meaning you can quickly print and immediately move to finished product, unlike other technologies that require slower production to accommodate for dry time or out-gassing. For many jobs, instant-dry, durable, UV printing and cutting can also eliminate the need for additional finishing, so you can reduce time to sale while recognizing additional cost savings.
White Ink Adds Value
The combination of white and color inks available on the UCJV300-160 model adds value to applications utilizing transparent or semi-opaque films. Compared to alternative inks such as solvent and latex, UV-curable inks deliver greater opacity with less ink consumption per square foot of coverage while maintaining image vibrancy and density. High opacity white ink also enables block out printing within a single print, so you can easily and efficiently create window graphics that can be viewed differently from either side, as in a PUSH / PULL door sign. These features ensure higher throughput, reduced waste, perfectly registered double sided graphics with lower overhead costs per print.
ID Cut Function in RasterLink6 Plus Software
The UCJV300-160 will ship with updated RasterLink6 plus software that includes an ID Cut function to make printing and cutting easier and faster. Along with registration marks, RasterLink6 plus software will include a bar code on the print. The barcode, read by the crop mark sensor on the UCJV300-160, contains cutting and rotation information allowing the UCJV300-160 to automate the cutting process. This function is particularly useful when running nested print-cut jobs, as the printer continuously reads the data for both single and ganged jobs.
