In the past, the printing industry was only known for paper and cardboard, but with the introduction of bad printing, printing on surfaces and objects is no longer a dream!

Introduction of bad flatbed printing or UV printing

Flatbed Print is an English word that means printing on the surface of flat objects. Flat bad printing is also called UV printing. A bad flatbed printing machine has a flat and wide table. The desired object is placed on the surface of this table and printed on it; Bearing in mind that the desired object must have a smooth and uniform surface. That is, this method is not applicable to spherical and round objects. Bad flat printing technology is UV type. These printers typically use inks that are made from acrylic monomers.

The printing process is such that the printing material is first placed on the surface of the machine table and fixed, in order to prevent any possible movement. Then its surface is thoroughly cleaned of dust. In the next step, the ink is sprayed onto the surface of the object, and at the same time it is exposed to strong ultraviolet light and polymerizes. With UV rays, the design is printed on the surface of the object for a long time with the best quality. This process makes it possible to print a wide variety of materials such as wood, tiles, glass, etc. The foul print can be completely adjusted in length, width and height of objects and it is possible to print on different surfaces with variable thicknesses.

Bad flatbed printing or UV printing features

Bad flatbed printing is only done on things that have a perfectly smooth and flat surface, such as: wood, tiles, ceramics, bodywork, license plates, plexiglass, metal, various shapes, and even phone cases!

This type of printing cannot be applied to round or curved objects such as glass or spheres, or similar concave and convex surfaces. Because the ink slides on the surface of the spherical body before printing. The other bad thing about flatbed printing is the surface color required for printing. Bad felt printing is mainly 4 colors, any design can be printed by it, but the surface color of the object must be white or light. In cases where the surface of the object is not white, a layer of white as a fifth color is first printed on the surface of the object and inside the design frame, and then the original design is printed to preserve the beauty and quality of its colors. This will increase the accuracy of the printed design.
