Direct printing on glass that works

Industrial Solutions Wide Format Solutions

swissQprint has launched a new total solution for UV flatbed printing on glass, comprising the glass option and an adhesion optimised ink set.

Individually printed glass elements are all the rage in interior design: for kitchen splashbacks, shower and room partitions, glass doors, lift cabin panelling, wall art, and more. For those already providing such services – and others with plans to do so – the company has put together a new package: a mechanical solution for an efficient, clean process, supplemented by an ink set for optimum adhesion.

A pivoting alignment edge with five steplessly adjustable horizontal stops ensures precise positioning of glass panels on the printbed. The latter is covered by special protective paper that is air permeable. So, the vacuum holds down the media but the paper retains ink printed in the bleed margin. The print bed stays clean, and with the roll to roll option the operator advances the paper at the touch of a button. This means short set up times between jobs.

The ink set optimised for glass printing includes process and light colours, as well as white and effect varnish. A bonding agent is unnecessary, which eliminates one process step. The varnish is used for finishing, for example to produce partial frosted glass or gloss effects.

With the new solution, both newcomers and existing users can pick up on the trend and specialise in direct printing on glass. The glass option and inks are retrofittable to swissQprint LED printers.
