UV printing doesn't have to be hard. Direct Color Systems® has mastered the art and science of UV LED ink and UV LED printing with this family of class-leading small-format UV LED inkjet printers. And with a Bulk Ink System™ standard on most models, UV LED printing need not break the bank.
When using the IRF4 inks, specifically calibrated for UVMVP F4 Editions, cracking and peeling of prints is eliminated or minimized on flexible items like leather belts, printer cables, ribbons and much more. The F4 Editions feature the same 6 ink colors in 8 channels as the standard UVMVP series printers – C, M, Y ,K, Cl, Cl, Wh, Wh. Users of the F4 Edition machines and IRF4 inks still maintain the industry-best print quality, speeds and capabilities like TEXTUR3D™ and EasyCyl that have made the standard UVMVP series so popular around the globe.

 While the components of the ADA signage produced on Direct Jet UV LED printers have tested to be in compliance with federal USA ADA signage guidelines outlined in the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, it is the responsibility of the signage manufacturer to ensure compliance with the governing local, state and federal authorities. ADA/Braille option is not available on F4 Editions.
 When utilizing the Y-axis Heavy-Duty Direct Drive Module.
Standard machines are calibrated for IR2 inks. F4 Editions are calibrated for IRF4 inks. To prevent contamination of the ink system, operators of the machine must only use the compatible ink specified for each machine. Failure to do so will harm the machine and void the warranty.
Specifications are subject to change without notice. Competitor data collected from published literature and/or electronic sites of manufacturer and authorized distributors as of 10/15/13. DCS recommends that individuals verify data on all printers with the manufacturer of each model for accuracy prior to making any purchasing decision.
Contact DCS or your nearest Authorized Representative today for additional information, to receive custom-printed samples or to schedule a demonstration of these tabletop/desktop UV printers.
Note about white ink: White ink contains Titanium Dioxide, which will settle out of the ink over a period of time. If the a cartridge-based printer has been resting for 6 hours or more, DCS recommends that the white ink cartridge be removed, shaken and reinstalled to ensure that the white pigment is properly mixed back into the ink before use. Machines equipped with the Bulk Ink System will automatically circulate the entire white ink tank and lines.
UV LED Light Caution: You are dealing with an LED UV light source that may harm your health. Do not look directly into the UV light source or expose your hand or any part of your body/skin directly to the UV LED light source.
UV Ink Caution: LED UV inks contain mild skin irritants in their liquid form. Always wear safety goggles and gloves when handling the liquid LED UV ink. There may be some VOCs emitted from the uncured inks during and after the printing process that could slightly irritate the nose, eyes and throat. If the printer is running in a small confined area, the VOCs could build up and increase the irritation. DCS strongly recommends that the printer be operated in a well ventilated area to keep the VOCs to a minimum.
