The world of printing is constantly evolving, driven by innovative technologies that push the boundaries of what's possible. Among these advancements, UV DTF printers are emerging as a game-changer, offering unparalleled versatility, precision, and durability in printing solutions. At DTF ULTRA, we take pride in staying at the forefront of this technological revolution, providing you with cutting-edge UV DTF printing solutions that elevate your printing experience to new heights.

What is UV DTF Printing and its process?

UV DTF printing (self-adhesive AB film transfer stickers) is a revolutionary technique that combines the power of UV printing with the convenience of direct-to-film technology. With our state-of-the-art UV DTF printers, you can effortlessly bring your designs to life with unparalleled precision and clarity, especially on objects with challenging surfaces.

The Printing Process Made Simple

With UV DTF printing, you have two options. The first option involves using a UV printer along with a laminating machine, also known as a laminator. The second option is a single-process 2-in-1 UV DTF machine that streamlines the printing and laminating process into one seamless operation.

UV Printer + Laminating Machine Method

This traditional two-step approach involves:

  1. Design Creation: Utilizing graphic design software or RIP software to craft your perfect design. Attention to detail at this stage ensures your final product captures the intended aesthetic and message.
  2. Printing on 'A Film': The design is printed onto a special transparent film, known as 'A film', designed for ink retention and detail preservation.
  3. Laminating with 'B Film': The printed 'A film' is then laminated onto an adhesive-backed 'B film' using a laminating machine, creating a durable sticker.
  4. Application: The final step involves applying the sticker to your chosen object, allowing for the customization of a wide variety of surfaces.

 

Single Process 2-in-1 UV DTF Machine

For those seeking efficiency and simplicity, the 2-in-1 UV DTF machine combines printing and lamination into one seamless step:

  1. Design Creation: Create your desired design that you want to print on a graphic design or RIP software(raster image processing) to process the image. Ensure that the design is formatted correctly and adjusted to the dimensions of the object.
  2. Printing and Lamination: A 2-in-1 UV DTF machine combines the printing and lamination processes into one step. Start the Single Process 2-in-1 UV DTF machine and let it warm up to the required temperature. Prepare the printing film or substrate as per the machine's specifications. Make sure it is loaded correctly and make any necessary adjustments for alignment. Once everything is ready, start the printing process using the software interface. The UV DTF machine will use UV ink to directly print the design onto the film. As it prints, the machine will automatically laminate the design, making it more durable and high-quality. Let the machine complete the printing and lamination process.
  3. Application: Once the printing and lamination process is finished, carefully peel off the printed design from the backing film. Apply the generated sticker to your desired object by gently pressing it onto the surface. Ensure that the surface is clean and free from dust or debris for better adhesion. Smooth out any air bubbles or wrinkles using a squeegee or soft cloth, ensuring that the sticker is securely attached to the object. Allow sufficient time for the adhesive to bond with the surface before handling or using the object.


Versatility and Applications

One of the key advantages of UV DTF printing is its versatility. These printers can handle a wide range of materials and surfaces, making them suitable for various applications. Whether you're printing on flat objects like phone cases and ceramic tiles or tackling challenging surfaces like curved or irregularly shaped items, UV DTF printers can get the job done.

Here are just a few examples of what you can print:

  • Phone cases
  • Pens
  • Bottles
  • Cans
  • USB dongles
  • CDs
  • Metal and wooden plaques
  • Wallets
  • Passport holders
  • Belts
  • Ceramic tiles


Whether you're working with challenging surfaces, irregular shapes, curved objects, exceptionally tall items, or very large objects, UV DTF printing rises to the occasion. Unlike direct UV printing, UV DTF printing eliminates limitations by allowing you to peel the printed sticker and apply it seamlessly to the object.

Benefits of UV DTF Printing

  • Versatility: Print on a wide range of materials and surfaces.
  • Quality: Achieve vibrant, high-quality prints with crisp details.
  • Efficiency: Streamline your workflow with the single-process printing and lamination option.
  • Flexibility: Print on objects of various shapes and sizes, eliminating limitations.
  • Ease of Use: With UV DTF printing, applying the sticker to the object is quick and simple.
