Flatbed UV Experience?

Posted on Thu, 8 Dec 2005 at 14:39



I'm looking for people that have UV flatbed printers who can share their experince. How do the heads hold up? Does ink adhere well to substrates? Are any machines really past the testing stages? No sales guys please! Only end users with machines for longer than 3 months!

Have been using the Durst Rho 205 (16 head)for 15 months over here in England,I am just about to swop for a new 32 head Rho 600. The Rho has been fantastic, runs on double day shifts often 24 hours still on the same heads, with only one breakdown last xmas day, (yes we where that busy) evan then that was only a blocked filter. Have only had to replace one component, that been a u/v lamp. Evan more impressive is the Rho ink, it matches a cmyk set and adheres to just about any substrate, have not had one issue with ink problems.Having run early Inca's the Rho's versatility (able to print flexible materials) and ability to produce banding free solids regardless of colour, sets the standard for other "flat beds" to aspire to. I did look again at other options before deciding on the 600 but pound for pound, versatily, reliabilty and quality made it a easy decision to make.
