Beispiele aus dem UV-Drucker - zu finden im FabLab Schauregal

The device mentors for the UV printer are Bjarne and Ian. If you have any questions or problems with the device, please do not hesitate to contact us.

On this page you will find everything you need to know to operate the printer. This includes the maximum printing area and which material is compatible with the printer.

With our UV printer you can print photos, logos or any other image files on almost any surface. In addition to standard full-color printing, you can also print white as a special color and use certain lacquers. This means you can give your project a tactile pattern or create Braille.

Vorbereitung für die Einweisung

Eine Einweisung für den UV-Drucker ist momentan noch in der Vorbereitung. Trotzdem hat jeder schon jetzt die Möglichkeit, seine Ideen umzusetzen. Ian und Bjarne sind spontan erreichbar und unterstützen euch bei der Umsetzung. Kontaktiert uns dazu einfach unter uvplotter@fablab-luebeck.de und wir setzten uns mit euch in Verbindung.

Printable materials and restrictions

Basically, you can print on any object that fits the printing area and is mostly flat. Please note that the ink is not suitable for food related producs. There are also some limitations with reflective surfaces.


Surface texture

The print object must not be reflective, otherwise the curing light from the UV lamp will be directed back onto the print head.

Unevenness on the object

Slight unevenness on the print object up to approx. 2 mm is okay. Even round objects (e.g. ballpoint pens, golf balls) can be printed.
As the print head moves over the entire object, only smooth surfaces can be printed.

Printing with special inks and varnish

Our UV printer has different ink configurations. The possible ink configurations are as follows:

  • CMYK + Gloss + White
  • CMYK + Primer + White (Primer must be ordered on request)
  • CMYK + White + White

The color white can also be used to print on dark objects. In addition, white can also be used as a primer, so that the colours will look more brillant;

With the varnish function a matt or glossy finish can be added to the printed product. A special embosing technique makes it possible to create tactile surfaces. Thus for example a surface structure can be realized or Braille can be produced.
