How do large printers work?

Large Format Printers can be categorized into the following

  • Dissolvent Based These are inkjet printers that use an oil or oil substitute, for example, Acetone ink framework. As of late “Eco-Solvent” inks are being synthesized that use Glycol or Glycol Ether based framework. Glycol ink carriers require extra restoring time. EcoSolvent based printers can be utilized in an office setup with oil-based inks frequently requiring extra ventilation. Once completely dry, the prints are waterproof and can be displayed on uncoated vinyl and rigid materials, for example, PVC and Foam board. This technique is regularly utilized on vehicle wrapping as the designs can be stretched as the ink will stay intact with the material wherever required.
  • UV Process This print procedure utilizes UV (UltraViolet) curable ink frameworks. The inks in this procedure are cured with UV lights and are restored very quickly. When completely dry, the inks are totally waterproof, embossed, and dynamic. The UV-based ink prints are incredibly sturdy and don’t require any layer of lamination for safety. The UV procedure permits practically any substrate to be utilized, for example, earthenware, ceramic, glass, polycarbonate, acrylic, foam board, aluminum, and treated steel and then some smooth white surfaces, for example, cardboard, Coated Dibond, etc.
  • Based on water Inkjet printers have a water-based ink framework. While classed as water-based a few inks can contain a substitute liquid customized for that printer. Mostly, printers with a water-based system have a warm cushion to dry the print as it leaves the machine speeding up the curing time to generate bulk printing but a few materials and applications may require extra restoring time. There are two types of water-based inks commonly used these days, UV-based and Dye-based. UV inks are relatively blunt in appearance than Dye but can withstand direct daylight without blurring.
