About the difference between PVC inkjet printing and laser printing
Wuhan Wenlin Technology Co.,Ltd is focus on card-making equipment for 20 years, long-term supply of card products of various specifications and models. Such as PVC inkjet printing materials, PVC laser printing materials, PVC overlay film, magnetic strip film, PVC materials, smart card core materials and so on. There are a variety of different color and size specifications, good card making machine must choose good card consumables from Wenlin.
There are always customers who ask questions: Can inkjet printing sheet be printed on a laser printer, and can laser printing sheet be printed on an inkjet printer? The answer is these behavior is not recommended.
Inkjet printing material: A printing paper with an ink receptive layer that can print high-quality images. It is a kind of coating method to apply various types of ink absorbing materials to paper on different papers. The finished paper, not including ordinary office paper or copy paper.
Laser printing material: One side is shiny and white, and this side should be printed when printing. The effect is very good.
Inkjet printer photographic paper, it is not suitable for color laser printers. This is because the color laser printer needs to produce high temperature when printing photos. Ordinary photographic paper will be curled and deformed at high temperatures, which may cause paper jams and even damage the printer in several cases.
At the same time, different materials can only be printed on the corresponding equipment.
The difference between laser printers and inkjet printers:
The difference between a laser printer and an inkjet printer is mainly reflected in the principle.
Laser printers: It uses a laser beam to quickly "project" a digital graphic or document onto a photosensitive drum. Electron discharge occurs at a position hit by the laser beam. Then, like a magnet, attract some fine toner particles, image and transfer onto paper.
The laser printer transfers the toner to the paper through the electrostatic discharge of the toner cartridge, and melts the toner on the paper through the heating shaft.
The water can't be scattered, the effect is the effect of our printed fonts.
The pigment of a laser printer is a solid particle.
Inkjet printers generally use thermal bubble inkjet technology to inject ink into the printing paper to form ink dots by heating, expanding and compressing the ink in a short time, thereby increasing the stability of the ink droplet color and achieving high speed and high speed. Quality printing.
Inkjet printers: The ink is sprayed through the micron-sized nozzles onto the paper to form a pattern. Generally, the paper will spread out when it meets water.
The pigment of an inkjet printer is a liquid.
Inkjet printer photographic paper, it is not suitable for color laser printers. This is because the color laser printer needs to produce high temperature when printing photos. Ordinary photographic paper will be curled and deformed at high temperatures, which may cause paper jams and even damage the printer in severe cases.
Advantages and disadvantages of laser printers and inkjet printers:
The advantages of laser printer: printing with toner cartridge and toner, printing speed is fast, the daily printing volume is large, the total number of printed sheets is large, the writing is clear, the color of the handwriting is adjustable, and the inkjet printer is not afraid of being placed for a long time. The laser printer must purchase a printer with a drum and a powder separation structure. (The toner cartridge must be replaced after the toner is used up. When the toner is used, pay attention to it when purchasing the machine.) After the toner is used up, you can add powder separately.
Disadvantages of laser printer: Laser printers are usually more expensive than inkjet printers, which means that one-time investments are relatively high.
Advantages of inkjet printer: Inkjet printers are relatively inexpensive (especially low-end products), print faster, simple to add ink, and lower cost per sheet. Be sure to buy a printer with separate nozzles and ink cartridges to avoid the disadvantage of replacing the nozzles with the ink when it is used up.
Disadvantages of inkjet printer: For users with a small amount of printing, there is no need to block the nozzle for a long time; after the ink is used up, the original ink must be used, and the compatible ink is prone to problems until it cannot be printed (printing manufacturers force consumers to consume) .
In addition, inkjet printers print at a slower speed and print a relatively small total number of sheets.
Summary: The biggest advantage of laser printers is that the speed is fast. After all, the toner cartridges are rolled out one page. The greater the print volume, the more obvious the advantage. In terms of color and print quality, inkjet printers still have great advantages, while inkjet printers are generally cheaper and smaller.
So, is the printer inkjet or laser good? There is no unified answer to this question. The main reason is to look at the use and budget. For example, it is necessary to consider inkjet printers when it is necessary to use it frequently and require high color reproduction. Laser printers can be considered for home users who require fast printing speeds and are not so high in color reproduction.
In general, everything depends on the needs, if it is the ordinary office level, the first is your print volume, followed by your print speed requirements; if it is the pursuit of print quality, such as photos or something, it is definitely better.
In a word, Wenlin focus on card making equipment for 20 years, good card making machine must choose good card consumables.
