Using your golf ball jig for more than just golf balls – Mutoh XpertJet 461UF
Golf balls must be at least 1.68” in diameter, ping pong balls are 1.57” in diameter. Because of this minimal difference in diameter, ping pong balls will fit nicely into the golf ball jig sold on Colman and Company - colmanandcompany.com/MUV-Golf-Ball-Jig-M.html
We decided to give printing on ping pong balls a try because we hadn’t tried to print on them before – do we really need any other reason?
Here’s what we found.
- They print beautifully at fine print mode, no need for extra fine mode
- When cleaned with isopropyl alcohol the adhesion is excellent
- You can print 60 balls on the jig – making it an efficient process – full bed print time would be approximately 6 minutes.
- They are inexpensive to print – we printed 20 ping pong balls and the total ink cost for all 20 balls was one half a penny! A bed of 60 balls would cost slightly more and a penny and half to print.
- It is totally conceivable that you could print 540+ ping pong balls per hour.
Ping pong balls don’t need to be used just for ping pong – games like beer pong use these balls, bingo and lottery machines use these type balls, they can be decorative like “eyes” for Halloween – the list goes on.
