This video features an inkjet pen printer, the X5 UV flatbed printer printing full color on pens. This high-performance digital printer is ideal for continuous printing on pens, notebooks and other promotional products as well as industrial products and more. Since pens are not inherently flat, a tooling fixture must be created to hold the objects in place on the flatbed. To start the printing process, the pens are loaded into the inkjet pen printer’s fixture. Once the start button is pressed, a printhead goes back and forth across the pens, jetting ink onto the surface of the pens and replicating the desired artwork. In this video, one row of 22 pens is printed at a time (although this machine can print many more at a time). The X5 prints CMYK plus two highly opaque UV LED-curable white inks, with an optional varnish for additional visual impact. Each print head holds 2 colors of ink. Black and magenta ink are stored in one, while yellow and cyan are in other. The S1 ink series was chosen for this application as it offers excellent adhesion to plastics. The artwork is transferred digitally from data stored in the inkjet pen printer. Once this inkjet pen printer works its magic, the fixture will travel out of the machine and be ready for unloading. Your pens will be instantly cured and ready to give-away.
