UV ink printing equipment began to develop rapidly

in the era of technological revolution in the transformation of digital printing mode, inkjet printing developed rapidly. As an environmental friendly and green printing method, UV ink-jet printing has rapidly increased its market share, especially in the UV ink used in flat-panel UV ink-jet printing equipment

at the 2009chinaprint exhibition four years ago, only enterprises were involved in the field of UV ink-jet. However, since the second half of 2012, with the strong development of pure flat-panel UV ink-jet equipment, UV ink-jet began to enter the eyes of equipment manufacturers and end users when opening the oil return valve. At an inkjet printing exhibition held in Guangzhou in March this year, the competitive situation in the domestic inkjet printing market has taken shape. This competition is not only reflected in UV lithography equipment, but also in the application of LDE technology in the field of inkjet printing

compared with domestic inkjet printing, country 1. Inkjet printing outside the scope of academic exchange of the conference pays more attention to the research and development of inkjet technology, especially the research and development of nozzle, UV lamp/led lamp and digital inkjet ink. The development of UV ink abroad started earlier. UV ink products in Europe totaled 20500 tons in 2000. Compared with Europe and America, the UV ink market in Asia started late, but grew rapidly. When chinaprint2009 was reviewed, the global ink market reached US $5.8 billion. According to the latest survey report of pirainternatio (shining like a star), the market scale of global environmental friendly (environment-friendly) inks is expected to reach $7.2 billion in 2014, with an average annual compound growth rate of 4.5%. In terms of application, foreign countries mainly go far in some small batch and variable data printing. In China, inkjet printing is widely used, such as flooring, ceramics, labels, packaging and decoration

in the future, inkjet printing will develop in the direction of standardization, popularization and specialization. For the technology of inkjet printing, whether it is nozzle technology, inkjet ink technology, uv/led lamp technology, or inkjet printing equipment itself, it will be standardized. For example, in the future, the nozzle will develop in a thinner and thinner direction, and the ink dot will be smaller and smaller. According to the size of ink dots, the development of inkjet inks will also move towards standardization. Behind the consistency of ink dots, the color of inkjet inks and other fields such as automobiles, intelligent robots, 3D printing, medical and health care, architecture and 3C have been greatly improved with the help of new materials and will not change. Developing the standardization of inkjet ink and the standardization of ink curing speed will be the focus of the development of inkjet ink in the future, and it is also one of the important directions of AGFA

Agfa printing art has been committed to the research and development of high-quality UV inks. Not only involved in the research and development of inkjet equipment, but also has a special ink research and development team. Agfa began to develop UV inks in 1992. Its ink has passed the global ISO9001:2000, ISO14001:2004 environmental protection standards and toy safety standards. Agfa UV ink has the characteristics of nearly zero odor and a storage life of up to 18 months. At the same time, Agfa UV ink loss is the lowest in its class, only grams per square meter. The 6-color Agfa UV ink can match 90% of Pantone color, and the color degree of prints can reach more than two years outdoors. Since last year, many domestic inkjet equipment manufacturers have carried out in-depth cooperation with Agfa in UV inkjet ink. Agfa UV ink products are not only leading in environmental protection, ink saving and durability, but also widely cited. The successful printing of AGFA UV ink on leather, glass, wood, metal and other substrates has greatly expanded the possibility of innovation and profitability for end users
