You may have been wondering why we need to compare the CD/DVD Digital Printing with a CD/DVD Label Maker Printer. To begin with, the CD/DVD Digital Printer can print up to 185 discs per hour while the CD/DVD Label Maker Printer can print up to 100 discs in a day. The CD/DVD Digital printer is an industrial machine while the Label Maker Printer is not. Aside from these facts, what other aspects of these two machines are worth comparing?
What we need digital inkjet printing machine to compare is the quality of the output of these 2 machines. The CD/DVD Label Maker uses an inkjet technology with a high resolution of about 1440 dpi. This enables it to create a high quality print and a crisp text. However, the Label Maker Printer is a water-based ink. There is, therefore, going to be a problem since smudges may be created on the prints. Furthermore, it has a very weak resistance to water. Customers usually want a CD or DVD print that is smudge-proof and waterproof. They demand prints that can last a very long time.
The CD/DVD Digital Printing Machine, on the other hand, is a robust machine. Although it only has a resolution of 300 dpi, but with a state of the art technology greyscale printhead, it makes its visual resolution up to 900 dpi. It also has a high quality of its image and crispness of text. It uses a UV Curable Ink (it only cures when UV light passes through the ink) which emits a little, or no VOC solvent at all, that reduces exposure to hazardous substances and pollution. It also produces durable abrasion and chemical-resistant prints. Unlike solvent or water-based desktop printers, it does not produce smudges even when the prints come in contact with sweaty palms.
So by quality, the CD/DVD Label Printer has a higher resolution. However, the CD/DVD digital printer is not way off for its quality. The CD/DVD Digital Printer is best with feeding and take-out automation of the CD/DVD. With the use of UV inks, the print output waterproof and smudge proof.
