A UV flatbed printer is an inkjet machine that utilizes a traveling fixture to send the part into the machine to be printed and then back out. UV flatbed printers are best for flat or slightly curved surfaces and for printing on one side at a time. While automation is possible, there are no production improvements as the bed needs to be loaded and unloaded before a new bed can be printed.
UV flatbed printers utilize UV inkjet inks to print on product. These inks are cured using this machine's UV/LED light.
