Creation LJ-2508uv curable wide-format inkjet printer Print

 

This model is no longer available new, but you might find it as a used printer. Regardless of what brand and model, before buying any used printer, we recommend that you realize spare parts may be an issue for printers no longer manufactured. Plus, the main reason why a model is retired is because engineers have developed new (and hopefully better) printheads, ink delivery systems, substrate transport systems, etc. So what may have been an acceptable printer when it was fresh and new, may be not as viable today.

Plus undersand that there are so many old models that it is not realistic for us to update each and every web page going back so many years. So if you need personal assistance, to decide which used printer is worth the risk, you can hire Dr. Nicholas Hellmuth for a personalized consultancy.

FLAAR is working at evaluating entry-level and mid-range UV-curable flatbed printers because we get so many requests for information from franchise sign shops as well as independent family-run sign shops.

Our first step was to visit DEC (Digital Equipment Company) and LexJet, to inspect the printer and do testing over a two-day period.

Second step will be to make time to visit a printshop that has one in service to take notes on how this Legend 72HUV printer functions in the real world. In the meantime, our initial comments are in the FLAAR Reports that can easily be downloaded on this page (and all other pages of this web site on UV printers).

Legend 72HUV hybrid flatbed UV now available from LexJet, Lloyds and more

To start with the Legend 72HUV is available from LexJet, Lloyd’s of Indiana, with more resources still to come. I know LexJet for many years as one of the more sophisticated suppliers of inkjet media to photographers. But LexJet has grown considerably and is now also an Epson, HP, and Canon dealer too, and now they offer the UV hybrid from DEC as well.
