Common Repairs of Latex, Solvent, and UV Grand Format Printers

| Large Format Printers | March 3, 2014

Repairs of Latex, Solvent, and UV Grand Format Printers

large format printer service_repairsWhen making the important decision about buying a large or grand format printer, you will need to consider not only what your customers are requesting now, but the new trending products your customers may request in the future.   Additionally, you should take the following into consideration; the initial cost of the printer, consumable costs (media and ink), maintenance and repair costs.  Many business people today are considering which type of printer is the best option; latex, solvent, and/or UV grand format printers.  Some of these options, however, can run into more problems than others. Here are some of the more common problems and questions people ask about their latex, solvent, and UV grand format printer repairs.

  • The ink smears with my UV printer.  Are you using poor quality inks? The chemistry of the ink used is very important and manufactures go to great lengths to get the viscosity just right. The ink needs to flow easily but dry quickly. If you are looking for a low cost solution to manufacturer inks, you must be careful and consider using the AGIS high quality third party inks.  We at AGIS offer quality third party inks that simply plug and play.  The inks we offer are the correct chemical make up for your particular printer and are of good quality. Another reason for inks it smear is that you may be using the wrong media for your printer.  Are you using UV inks on material that is not UV compatible? This will cause the UV ink to sit on top of the paper, or whatever material you are using, instead of being absorbed by the paper to dry.
  • Latex, solvent, water based wide format printer and copier repairMy paper curls up, is there something wrong with my solvent based grand format printer? No, this is simply the result of moisture evaporating from your paper. This causes the coating to harden, and then shrink. Try adding a small humidifier to your room or store your paper in a room with the same humidity levels as your production room. The easiest and cheapest solution to this problem is simply adding a few weighted clips to the edge of the paper when you begin printing.
  • My printer didn’t need repair, only recalibration, is calibration that important? Proper calibration allows your grand format printer to print the exact same colors today, tomorrow, even two months from now. The smallest things can affect the inks; from the humidity in the air to the age of the print heads. Calibration is something you can learn to do yourself as it is generally included in the printer’s firmware or the RIP software.
  • My latex printer dries prints immediately, is this normal?  One of the best things about the new latex inks is that they dry extremely fast after printing, no drying time is necessary nor is the use of an external dryer. You can laminate your prints immediately after printing, a big plus in the turnaround time of your product.

As you can see, many of the more common questions and problems have nothing to do with your latex, solvent, and UV grand format printer repair issues, but rather these are external matters or even normal operating systems. If none of the above seem to cover your exact problem then perhaps it’s time to call someone regarding your latex, solvent, and UV grand format printer repair technician.

Large Format Printing Basics

| Large Format Printing | February 3, 2014

The demand for large format printing services continues to grow. Large format printing has become extremely versatile and is now used for both retail outlet, professions, advertisers, and private, home usage.

large format printingWhat exactly is large format printing? Most people thing of poster or architectural drawings but it actually encompasses much more. Large formats are prints that can be up to 16 feet wide and virtually any length. Does your project call for something larger than 16 feet wide? This I not a problem as there are procedures to simply join pieces together to seamlessly create ventures that can exceed 16 feet.

With smaller printing jobs it used to be common that the larger the number of prints that were ordered the cheaper each item would cost, more commonly referred to as “offset printing.” However this is not true of digital printing since there is no minimum volume limitations this allows small quantities jobs to be as equally cost effective as larger quantity jobs.

Large Format Printing Basics – Considerations

Proper consideration can help the quality and durability of your design go from acceptable to outstanding. For example, you need to consider bleeds in your project, especially if it will need to be pieced together. Bleeds are an important part of a successful large format print as they are frequently made from multiple pieces that will need to be joined. These bleeds are the 3 to 5mm zones on the boundaries of the design that allow for small errors and will give the finished product fluidity with no gaps or white lines showing through. Another consideration that technical support can help you with is the images themselves that you have chosen. You should not rely on images that were copied or found on the internet. Although this can successfully be printed on a small scale on a home printer it does not work well in a large format. Pictures such as those found on the internet expanded to 10 feet wide will look blurry, unsatisfactory, and unprofessional. Depending on the size of your project technical support can help you decide which resolution will make your project look its best. Generally a resolution of at least 300DPI (dots per inch) will generate a high resolution reproduction, avoiding your finished product from looking grainy.

Many different types of materials can now be used in large format printing. What type of substrate you use will depend on the application you intend the project to be used for and the durability it will require. For example, a poster inside a building will not need to be protected from the elements but a billboard outside will most likely need to be laminated ( coated with a plastic sealer) to keep it looking fresh. Other types of materials used are clear plastics with adhesives for floors, and windows, vinyl, even canvas. The possibilities are almost endless and limited only by imagination.

We at AGIS offer print supplies at a great value.  Quality items at amazing prices is what we are known for.  Just give us a call and ask about our printing media and supply.
