After we developed the first A3 size UV LED printer at the beginning of 2013, we finally develop another A1 size LED UV printer at the end of 2013. This LED UV flatbed printer was converted from Epson R7800 model, printing size is 60*150cm, and max printing height is 12cm, vacuum table inside.
There was a toy factory in Guangzhou, China looking some new printing technology for their toy covers printing. They did a lot of research about the latest printing technology and knew that the UV printing was new & popular direct substrate printing at that time.
They searched the UV printer manufacturers in internet and found our Acro Enterprise was the professional digital UV flatbed printer factory with 10 years manufacture experience. Their R&D team brought all kind of their toy cover samples for testing by our UV printers.
After they tested our printed samples, they were impressed by the UV printing quality. And finally they placed the first demo LED UV printer order to us. In order to improve our future UV printers, we decided to send one technician to work for them for 1 week. During 1 week testing, our technician taught their staff how to use & maintain the LED UV printer in a good condition.
In the past, they were using silk screen printing for their products. But sometimes, they got some orders with many designs which silk screen printing was not economic. So UV printing will be the best choice for either small orders or mass production.
Compare to silk screen printing, UV printing is much more flexible, can handle small orders and big orders with different designs.
In the video, it was the real mass production in our customer’s factory. One worker can handle all the jobs by loading empty toy covers and packed up the printed toy covers.
