Why Digital UV Printers Are So Expensive?

UV printing seems to be taking on a life of its own. For several years now, it has all but dominated the trade shows with some really big names taking a marked interest in showing their printers, even though they knew they were out of the price range for 95 percent of the people walking the floor. However, do you know why digital uv printers are so expensive?

UV printers are more expensive because of the following points:
1. UV printers are non-standard machines and cannot be mass-produced in large quantities.
2. UV printers have higher requirements for machine sheet metal and assembly.
3. The core cost of UV printers is higher. 

 
1. Non-standardized
Most UV printers are customized according to customer needs, such as size, configuration, etc. For example, LC, LM, varnish, white ink functions, even for machines of the same size and the same configuration, customers may also request to add some personalized functions. As a result, the sheet metal of UV printers cannot be scaled and batched, and there is no scale effect, so the cost has been high.
 
2. High standards
If the UV printer wants to produce good results, the machining accuracy and assembly requirements must have higher and stricter standards, so the production cost is higher.
 
3. The cost of core components is high
The core parts of UV printers, such as boards, nozzles, and gratings, have higher procurement costs, which also leads to the high cost of UV printers. Taking Ricoh Gen5 as an example, the cost of four nozzles is about 80,000. The whole machine The price is more difficult to cheap.
