Unparalleled image quality
– Produce higher print quality with reduced color bleed and
sharper images with Konica Minolta’s newly-developed UV
ink.
– UV printing produces prints with a nice finish. Rather
than being absorbed into the substrate, the UV ink tends
to sit on top of the printed surface, providing a sharper
and crisper printed result.
– With print quality consistent from substrate to substrate,
job to job, problems such as curling of the finished prints
are eliminated - as UV ink does not require any heating
or drying.

WATER-BASED INK PROCESS
Image formation
Merits of using UV ink. Because processes such as permeation of the paper with solvents and drying are unnecessary, paper waviness is minimised and outstanding
registration accuracy and high quality prints are realised.
Durable performance
Print performance and reliability are maximised, which
increases the overall productivity and avoids the risk of the
ink drying prematurely.
Prints are available instantly after production. With UV printing,
the ink is dry the moment it comes off the press ... there’s no
waiting time for the ink to dry. UV inkjet eliminates ghosting
of images, aparent with other types technologies. Instead,
press checks are quick, and you can move on to binding and
finishing straight away. Proof and print on the same device
saves time and money.
Highest reliability
UV ink is highly durable. It offers excellent resistance against
sun exposure, scratching and rubbing, often associated with
other printing processes. Its colour consistency is outstanding. Your customers will love that their large promotional
pieces won’t become tired and sun-worn after a few weeks.
Professional media handling
UV ink gives you the flexibility to print on almost any
substrate – from heavy textured stock, folding cartons,
through to never tear expanding your application list and
market potential. UV Printing achieves excellent results for
a wide range of small retail items, including book covers,
clings, cards, banners, and many more. It is also ideally
suited to package printing.
Caring about the environment
As UV inks do not need extensive heat drying or harmful
pre-coating of media, they create less waste in materials,
labour and energy. There are no VOCs (volatile organic
compounds) or air pollutants involved. Ink wastage is
minimised as well as energy consumption reduced. All this
makes for an environmentally sound production process.
