UV Inkjet Applications

Why Choose UV Inkjet?


Colordyne Technologies’ UV inkjet printers provide industry-leading print speeds and resolution for label and packaging production. Label converters and brand owners can produce labels at resolutions up to 600 x 600 dpi while running 246 ft/min (75 m/min). Plus, UV inks offer enhanced durability for industrial and outdoor applications needing fade and water resistance.


Retrofitting a UV inkjet printer from Colordyne onto existing equipment provides a lower capital investment option for converters and brand owners looking to add digital production to their business for the first time. Plus, the 3800 Series UV – Retrofit easily integrates with existing tooling and finishing equipment that has already been invested in.


Reduce setup and changeover times by printing variable text, images and data digitally, while printing static content with a traditional flexo process. This digital hybrid UV inkjet combination creates a powerful tool for label converters and delivers a quicker ROI.
