Why Use Flatbed Printing?

Flatbed digital printing uses UV curable inks made of acrylic monomers that are exposed to strong UV-light to cure or polymerise them. The process has many benefits for commercial use, specifically retail and event signage.

Multiple Surface Printing

The flatbed printing process allows for printing on a wide variety of surfaces, including wood, metal, glass, acrylic, plastic, ceramic, leather, and even photographic paper or film. The multitude of choices makes it an ideal option for digitally printed signs for trade shows, events and exhibitions.

Economical Digital Printing

Flatbed printing is often viewed as a better and more cost-efficient substitute for screen-printing as there is no need for additional printing plates or silkscreens to be used in the process. It is why flatbed printing is extremely popular with the fast production of signage.a [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1520838442969{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-right: 10px !important;padding-bottom: 10px !important;padding-left: 10px !important;background-color: #f2f2f2 !important;}”]

Speed and Flexibility

Flatbed printing distributes ink on the surface of material while specially designed UV lights cure or dry the ink instantly. The printing of banners and signage can be achieved relatively fast, a feature that is especially helpful for short lead-time production deadlines.

Flatbed digital printing machines also have an adjustable printing bed that makes it possible to print on surfaces ranging in thickness from a sheet of paper to thicker material such as metal or glass, adding much-needed flexibility.

UV Resistance and Longevity

Aside from the above, flatbed printing offers high printing resolution and UV resistance for non-fade longevity, the latter convenient for signage and banners that need to be exposed outdoors.

Overall, flatbed printing guarantees cost-efficiency, accuracy and quality of the printing process.
