How to Choose Different Brand Printer Head When Buy a UV Printer

At present, UV printer heads in the industry Epson, Toshiba, Ricoh are generally the most common brands. Nozzle life, Accuracy, Stability of these factors directly affect the use of subsequent equipment. The core is to look at the price of the nozzle, cheap nozzle is not good as expensive one. In fact, there are lots of customers who are not particularly understanding for the nozzles, so APEX here will popularize some of the UV printer nozzle tips for everyone.

From the print level, Epson's nozzle is the most finest, followed by Toshiba, then Ricoh. The colors printed by Epson printheads are more saturated because they have finer orifices and smaller ink spots, which improves the overall print quality. The Toshiba nozzle is second only to Epson, and Ricoh's nozzles are larger, and the comparison of the three types of machines will be more obvious.

We know that the print speed is determined by the fineness of the print head, the quality of the picture, and the size of the print format. The same print material, print pattern, and print format for comparison, Epson's print speed is the slowest, followed by Ricoh, and finally Toshiba. Toshiba nozzles print twice as fast as Epson.
