On the return pass, a built-in UV LED system exposes the screen more quickly than traditional curing units and with less energy.
Many screen printers working in commercial markets such as display graphics have long since confronted the reality that digital printing is changing their businesses. The question was how quickly they needed to embrace the technology to ensure success in their businesses for years to come.
