  2. Tech Tip Tuesday: Maximize The Production Life of Print Heads

    2 Comments

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It is very important that whether it is an operator or maintenance that care is always taken when working with print heads. They are generally expensive and delicate. If you want to maximize the production life of print heads only trained personal should be handling them. A filtration of some sort should be used between the supply of ink and print head to filter out impurities before reaching the head. For UV curable inks with heads stray UV should be limited and take precaution to keep from over exposure and curing of the face plate.

    To maximize the production life of print heads care must be taken by keeping the head and especially the face plate clean. Use the appropriate flush for the ink set being used. Not all flush is compatible so if not certain call your ink supplier. Wipe the heads prior to printing with the flush and a clean lint free head wipe. Maintenance jetting or head cleaning should be done daily/weekly to exercise all jets in the head depending on usage. While printing all nozzles may not be printing so this exercise ensures all nozzles fire. It is then best to perform a jet test. By doing so you will actually print on to a substrate to witness a pattern/image of the individual nozzles firing. Doing this routine on a daily basis ensures you see a possible problem before it become unrecoverable. Many heads are recoverable if taken care of and signs of blockage are caught early enough and no physical damage to the head. Talk to your ink/head supplier for possible head recovery procedures or service.

  3. SGIA 2013 Journal Round-Up of UV-LED Flatbeds: EPS’s fJET-24 Is Hi-Res for Hi-Quality

    Leave a Comment

    In the most recent SGIA Journal, Julian Joffe, CEO of Engineered Printing Solutions, was asked to participate in the article on “Compact UV-LED Flatbeds Take Inkjet Printing to New Heights” by freelance writer Eileen Fritsch.

    Last October the fJET-24 flatbed printer was added to our inkjet product line. This printer supports single- or bi-directional CMYK printing and is excellent for personalized souvenirs, customized gifts, industrial products and special promotional items.

    Adding the fJET-24 capabilities in any print shop would be a good way for a print-service provider to diversify their business. This unit is designed as a “high-speed Industrial flatbed” printer and offers high-quality graphics on most flat surfaces.  It allows the production of any image directly from standard graphic files to the product with no need for intermediate steps. It effectively replaces screen printing or pad printing and allows technically-proficient wide-format printers to break into new markets without the introduction of new, unfamiliar types of printing processes.

    Three major advantages:

    1. Allows direct production from a graphic file to print with no need for clichés or pads. Plus, multicolor imaging is accomplished without the need for image registration between colors. Extremely simple CYMK set-ups, compared to CYMK printing in the pad printing world – not that easy to do – where creating separations can be … well, challenging. The fJET-24 is equipped with an internal RIP that allows almost instantaneous creation of a separation file that is then sent directly to the printer in seconds.
    2. Reduction in set-up costs that enable CYMK printing with no additional set-up charges needed.
    3. Large image areas can easily be printed – up to 20″ x 24″ – in either CYMK multicolor or spot colors.

    Reduction in set-up time and elimination of components such as plates and pads translates into a cheaper printing. Inkjet has many advantages, but it will not replace pad printing, which is a better solution for products with curved and recessed surfaces.
