1800z UV LED Inkjet Printers
UV printing doesn't have to be hard. Direct Color Systems® has mastered the art and science of UV LED ink and UV LED printing with this family of class-leading small-format UV LED inkjet printers. And with a Bulk Ink System™ standard on most models, UV LED printing need not break the bank.
UV printing has been around for about a decade, but the cost and size of the equipment has been prohibitive. Utilizing a low-watt LED UV light and specialized proprietary UV LED inks, DCS has made a breakthrough to bring this technology to a line of economical, small-format flatbed printers.Direct Jet UV printers have solved print durability issues related to abrasion and solvents, while also delivering more effective, opaque white ink performance for higher-quality printing on dark materials.
Our latest UV advancement, the Direct Jet 1800z Series, is designed to increase profitability by producing more, in less time, with industry-leading print quality and features.
Direct Jet prints directly onto surfaces including, but not limited to: wood, metals, ceramic tiles, plastics, glass and plastic. Our UV LED inks are very flexible and won't crack or flake off, even in very flexible vinyl applications.

Please note: The MVP range video's below have been replaced by the 1800z pictured above. The 1800z has a larger print area and is approx 30% faster than the MVP range.
Being able to print a massive range of promotional items and textiles on the same printer with the same ink, makes the 1800z range a very cost effective solution. Until now you would need to purchase two different systems to print in this way, the 1800z has broken the mould on promotional printing and is the only system available that can do this.
One very important point we must make, the UV ink used in the 1800z is not a standard UV ink. It is specially designed for the applications including textiles and is fully tested to make sure it is safe to use in this way. The F6 range of UV inks is the only ink of its kind and is not sold to be used in other UV printers.
