UV Printing:

Process:

Flatbed UV printing involves using a flat surface (the bed) onto which the material to be printed is placed. UV-curable inks are then applied directly onto the surface of the material. UV light is used to cure (dry) the ink almost instantly.

Applications:

This method is suitable for printing on rigid materials such as glass, wood, metal, acrylic, and plastic sheets. It’s often used for signage, promotional items, architectural décor, and packaging prototypes. The UV curing process allows for printing on a wide range of substrates, including both porous and non-porous materials.

Rotary Printing:

Process:

Rotary printing, also known as rotary screen printing, involves a cylindrical screen through which ink is forced to print onto the substrate. The substrate is fed continuously through the rotary press, and the cylindrical screen rotates as the ink is applied, transferring the design onto the material.

Applications:

This method is commonly used for high-volume printing on flexible materials such as textiles (e.g., fabric rolls for clothing, upholstery), wallpapers, and labels. Rotary printing is efficient for large-scale production runs due to its high-speed capabilities and the ability to print continuously.

While both methods are used for different purposes, they can complement each other in certain printing workflows. For instance, a printing company might use flatbed UV printing for producing customized promotional items on rigid materials and rotary printing for large-scale textile printing. Each method offers distinct advantages depending on the specific requirements of the printing job.
