UV Ink Environmental Printing Equipment Began To Develop Rapidly

- Feb 11, 2019-

The digital printing method changed the skill revolutionary era, and inkjet printing was agile. As an environmentally-friendly green printing method, UV inkjet printing has increased the market share, especially in the beginning of UV inks used in flat-panel UV inkjet printing equipment. Four years ago, at the ChinaPrint exhibition in 2009, only 2-3 companies entered the category of UV inkjet, but from the beginning of the second half of 2012, with the weak development of pure flat-panel UV inkjet equipment, UV inkjet inks began to enter various equipment manufacturers and The view of the end user. At an inkjet printing exhibition in Guangzhou held in March this year, the competition situation of domestic inkjet printing malls has now taken shape. This kind of competition is not only on the current UV flatbed printing equipment, but also the use of LDE skills in the field of inkjet printing.

Compared with domestic inkjet printing, foreign inkjet printing has paid more attention to the development of inkjet technology, especially the development of nozzles, UV lamps/LED lamps and digital inkjet inks. The development of foreign UV inks started earlier. Europe's 2000 UV ink products totaled 20,500 tons. Asian UV ink malls started late compared to Europe and the Americas, but the growth rate is very fast. When recalling CHINAPRINT2009, the size of the global ink mall reached $5.8 billion. In the future, inkjet printing will be carried out in the direction of standardization, popularization and specialization. For inkjet printing skills, whether it is nozzle technology, inkjet ink skills, UV/LED lamp skills, or inkjet printing devices themselves will be standardized. For example, in the future, the nozzle will be moved in a more and more fine direction, and the ink dots will become smaller and smaller. Depending on the size of the ink dots, the development of inkjet inks will also move in the direction of standardization. The color and other characteristics of inkjet inks will not change behind the consistency of ink dots. Standardization of inkjet ink development and standardization of ink curing speed will be the focus of future inkjet ink development

Pira International's latest survey shows that the global market for environmentally friendly (environmentally friendly) inks is expected to reach $7.2 billion in 2014, with a CAGR of 4.5%. As far as the use is concerned, the first priority in foreign countries is to go far in some small batches and variable data printing. In domestic inkjet printing, the citations are more extensive, such as flooring, ceramics, labels, packaging and decoration, etc. have achieved good use.
