Digital ceramic printing on glass is a new technology used for the use of imagery, pattern or text to the surface of flat glass. It has allowed for new possibilities and improvements in glass decoration and treatment, especially in architectural glass. The newest possibilities include high amounts of customization, translucency and opacity control, light diffusion and transmission, and solar heat gain co-efficiency calculation.
Because of the extreme durability of the Coffee Printer, our prime degree of customization it enables, along with its suitability for too long and short runs, digital ceramic printing is an ideal solution for interior and exterior architectural glass applications. This process does not require screens, as well as the files are stored digitally. Therefore, you will find no setup, storage, or maintenance costs; and printing of all sizes of the panel is straightforward.
The essential elements that contribute to the general advancement of digital ceramic printing on glass are digital glass printers, ceramic inks, and image processing software.
An electronic glass printer for digital ceramic printing on glass is a flatbed digital printer with print heads that jet ceramic inks directly onto the glass. The glass remains stationary, while just the printer carriage sweeps over the print table.
A key feature of the Led UV Printer is drop fixation, where ink droplets are dried immediately to prevent drop gain. The fixation from the ink enables a single pass of the print carriage even when printing multi-layer and multi-color files. The drop fixation also makes inline double vision printing possible. Double vision involves creating a graphic that looks different depending on which side of the glass will be viewed. It is achieved by printing different graphics one on top of another. An inline dryer was developed to permit real-time drying as well as maximize factory space. A smooth color switching method is included so that machine operators can simply shift between print jobs and increase throughput. The top-resolution print quality (approximately 720 dpi) as well as the precision of the printing together allow glass processors to print anything from fine, sharp and small elements to complex, full-color images on glass panels as much as 3.3 x 18 m (10.8 x 32.8 ft) in dimensions.
Digital ceramic printing on glass uses digital ceramic inks that mimic the CMYK color model and are made of ceramic composition and inorganic pigments and elements. The inks are made tfnjul an extremely controlled production process to get rid of any variability in the final product. The consistency in replication of the inks brings about high compatibility with the entire color palette of inks. The inks can therefore be digitally mixed and designers knows the particular results of the colour each and every time. Printed architectural glass panels can also be replaced when needed without the chance of the brand new panels not matching the colours in the existing panels.
Design-to-glass workflow software bridges the DTG Printer as well as the inks and it is the design tool for preparing the graphic apply for printing. It calculates ink usage to manage degrees of translucency and opacity, to manage color matching and mixing, as well as make up for different glass sizes and thicknesses.
