The Compress LED UV Printer is a flatbed uv printer that occupies a unique place in the market. It’s a “small format” uv printer, but has a 17.7” x 24” bed size. That’s significantly larger than any similar product on the market. Most small format uv printers are 14x16” only – you’ll see why that’s important in the ROI section below.
The other unique feature, which you will not see demonstrated here, is that you can print on items up to 11.8” deep. We’re printing on standard tiles here but why limit your opportunities?
We are showing printing 4 here, but the Compress iUV600s flatbed uv printer will fil up to 12 on its 17.7” x 24” bed.
• Rough tile dimensions of 5.75” x 5.75”
• Ink cost per tile about $.35
• Total materials cost per tile approximately $1.35
• 4 Tiles printed in approximately 8 minutes
• No adhesion promoter used. Just cleaned with alcohol
The 4 custom tiles we printed took about 8 minutes to print. Because of the way the Compress led uv printer uses bidirectional printing, printing the entire bed of a dozen blank clay tiles should take 12 minutes using the same setting we did for this job.
Easy ROI Calculations:
A quick search only shows unique clay tiles selling for as little at $9.95 each but none that offered on demand custom printing or decoration.
Custom ceramic tiles, which will be shown in another video, sell for $18 to $35 each depending on size and vendor.
• You can print 12 Custom Tiles per Print Run
• It will take 12 minutes to print all 12
• You will be able to produce 48 of these custom tiles per hour
• Materials cost per hour = 48 X $1.35 = $64.80
Even at $9.95 each that is $477.60/hour in revenues.
Less your $64.80 in materials cost you have over $412.80 for labor, profits and overhead.
