At Longier it is our aim and target offering a complete range of printers for most suited sizes as well as all kind of applications as there are UV-applications, glass, ceramic, enamel, textile and whatever is possible and come next. So you can decide for yourself whether you need a flatbed printer with manual or automatic feeding, whether you need UV inks with LED-curing system or printers with ceramic / inorganic inks and an IR drying system or roll to roll printers for signage or textile applications.Since we use the same platform just changing the parts needed for the used inks or the special application driving and maintaining the printers is quite common. In this way, the printers can be optimally configured for graphic and industrial applications for ceramic printing, printing on glass or various fabrics.Recognized partners for the inks enable the best possible properties for print results with regard to adhesion, color space, abrasion resistance and other requirements.
Glass-, Ceramic - Printers
Printing on ceramic tiles, glass, metal sheets can be done with UV curing inks, no doubt, but if special requirements are in place, so called inorganic or ceramic inks have to be used. Those inks are available for firing temperatures at 720°C , 850°C and 1,200°C either containing just the ceramic pigments where so called glaze has to be applied in a separate step or containing the frits. Depending on the ink, the ink system inside the printers have to be specially designed. So Longier offers a wide range of printers for manual or automatic feeding whereas FG stands for glass ink system and TC for ceramic ink system without frits included in the ink.However, thanks to the modular approach, FG printers can become TC or FP regarding the needed configuration.
Roll to roll textile printing is going to replace traditional printing methods since it is much more environmental friendly and allows much faster and even better color matching.
