It is suitable for sublimation transfer large banners, flags, T-shirts, nonwoven fabrics, apparel fabrics, towels, blankets, mousepads, and other products in the piece, especially the continuous transfer of the cloth. Capable of continuous printing speed, to meet the needs of large volume printing the customer

2. The UV printer is the principle of using UV ink, which is to do the dry.

So, the material is the biggest difference between them, they can not replace the material used for the UV printer, the UV lamp is equipped with a special lamp, much heat, for thin PVC, organic glass plate materials such as printing medium is heated and deformed, so be careful in print.

How to Change Chip on Ink Cartridges of Dye Sublimation Printer?

Most dye sublimation printer use a smart chip to keep track of the ink level in your cartridge. Some clients choose to reuse their cartridges by refilling them with ink for saving the cost. Many office supply and discount stores sell affordable ink refill kits. Used cartridges can be refilled two to three times before having to be thrown away. In order for your dye sublimation printer to recognize the newly-filled ink cartridge as full, you will need to replace the cartridge chip.

Use a sharp, thin tool to do this, such as a Swiss army knife or utility knife. Slide the blade of the knife under one of the plastic tabs. Gently pry up. Repeat to remove the other plastic tab.
5. Lift the chip from the cartridge.
6. Place the new chip over the two plastic tabs used to secure the chip onto the cartridge. Gently press down until the chip properly falls into place under the tabs. You can either use your index finger to do this or a pair of tweezers.
7. Take a paper towel and lay it out on a flat surface, such as a table or desk. This is where you will be pouring the new ink into the empty ink cartridge. Place the empty cartridge on top of the paper towel, with the top of the cartridge facing up.

9. Locate the fill holes on the top of your old cartridge. You can feel for the depressions by rubbing your finger across the top.
10. Pierce the refill hole — check your refill manual, as some cartridges will have more than one refill hole — with a sharp point, such as a needle or a thin pencil. The hole size should be minimal and the size of the long needle attached to the refill ink bottle.
11. Insert the long needle of the refill ink bottle into the correct ink hole on your cartridge. Try not to push any air into the cartridge while refilling. Very slowly and carefully, add the ink. Stop as soon as you see a bit of ink coming out of the hole.
12. Remove the needle completely.
13. Daub the top of the cartridge very lightly and carefully with the paper towel. A splotch of ink should leak out onto the paper towel.
14. Tape the hole with a small piece of clear tape. Before putting the cartridge back in, make sure that no ink is leaking out of the hole.
15. Insert the cartridge back into the digital inkjet printer.

 2. Printer print head disconnected

The printer’s working ink has a specified working environment. In other words, the viscosity of the ink may vary with temperature. The viscosity of the ink will have an impact on the print head. Therefore, As the temperature rises, the viscosity of the ink decreases. Ink can easily form bubbles in the tube causing the printer to break.
