How much does a uv printer cost ?

As we know there are many printers in the open market with different prices, HOW to choose the right one?

The following points are of concern to many customers: brand, type, quality, head configuration, printable materials, support and warranty guarantee.


Normally uv printer brand from Japan and America is well-known, mature technology and stable system, but the price is too expensive.

Chinese printer market is very big, with different prices and quality, and more cost-effective.

2.Type of UV Printer:

Modified printer, professional uv printer. Modified printer is modified from broken EPSON office printer, very cheap price and small size.

But the disadvantages are obvious, poor machine is too unstable to work for business.

There are a sea of sensors, always ink error and paper jam. And cleaning unit is made by plastic, not suitable for corrosive uv ink.

Professional uv printer adopts professional printing control system, high development and manufacturing cost, so the price is matched, can provide you with stable printing system.

3.Printer quality:

There are many determinants of printer quality. If necessary, we will introduce it next time.

4.Head configurations:

UV Printer has different head configurations, it is related to print quality and maintenance cost.The amount of print heads will affect print speed, different print head has different print quality.

For uv printer, besides the common Epson model, there are Ricoh, Kyocera, Konica and other brand heads for your choice.

*EPSON print head features are cost-effective, sufficient supply, mainly used for uv printer with low price. Meanwhile, short lifespan, more maintenance cost and time are the disadvantages.

*Ricoh print head is mainly for industrial large format printer, Gen5, Gen6 and other models, long lifespan, less maintenance. But high price, need specific expensive mainboard to match Ricoh head.

*Kyocera print head is one of the best performing print heads in the world. Best print quality, working attitude. Generally, top industrial uv printers use Kyocera printheads.

Choose machine according to your needs (meet printing size, speed, quality, print head configuration)

The last not at least point, the most important point: good after-sale service.

After-sales service can’t be measured by price, but maintenance costs (time, money) need to be considered, if after-sales service isn’t guaranteed, then the printer will become useless and waste your money and time, which is a headache matter.
