Sun UK will shortly be bringing the first UV LED hybrid digital printing machine into the UK, capable of printing onto Glass, Granite, ceramics, aluminium, and wood to name a few substrates, with sales in Italy, France, Spain and Dubai to name a few, the UK will be playing catch up with the rest of Europe. This 2.5 meter wide digital machine handles glass with a weight up to 200 kilos and 20cm in thickness.

So prefabricated units can also be accommodated by this industrial printing machine.

This machine will be used predominately for glass decoration, both commercial and artistic with photo quality printing in seven colours. Applications include single colour back painting, with good resistance to acetone, alcohol and silicones. Inks will withstand temperatures up to 160 degrees, allowing pre-printed glass to be laminated. The ink has also been tested with liquid lamination systems.

The printing machine can create raised print effects, so snake skin, Cow hide and other raised patterns such as intricate lead window effects can be applied to the front of glass and glass mirrors and other architectural glass projects. As the machine is digital and cured with a powerful LED UV light source, curing is instantaneous and allows for quick turnaround of work.

On the horizon the manufacturer SUN LLC who produces ink as will as manufacturing the machine and the LED units, is currently developing a ceramic ink, and a metallic ink.
