Luescher JetPrint 3530 UV-curable inkjet flatbed 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.

We first saw the impressive looking Luescher JetPrint UV-cured ink flatbed printer at the DRUPA 2004 trade show. We have continued to inspect this printer every year, most recently at ISA 2006. The FLAAR Reports has now finished a full evaluation of the Luescher JetPrint 3530 UV-curable inkjet flatbed printer.

We check print quality, whether the printer’s inks can achieve acceptable colors (remember, most UV-cured inks are poor in reds; the reds tend to look orange; yellows tend to be green and greens tend to have too much yellow).

If you are about to spend half a million dollars or Euros, you would be well advised to order Dr Nicholas Hellmuth’s penetrating analysis of the Luescher JetPrint 3530 UV-cured inkjet flatbed printer. For example, he takes the advertising claims, one by one, and suggests whether the ad claims are realistic, or not.

In our update last summer (2007) we also raised the question, "Why did Luscher pull out and not display their UV printer at ISA '07? Why did Luscher not have any more UV printer at FESPA '07 in Berlin."

FLAAR also offers a Report on the NUR Tempo, and on Inca flatbeds, as well as two reports on the Gandinnovations Jeti UV flatbed printer.

A second Site-Visit Case Study by Nicholas Hellmuth on the Luscher JetPrint 3530

For June 2006 we have added a site-visit case study of the Luescher printer. Dr Hellmuth visited a large print shop in Greece that had this printer (plus two Gandy Jeti solvent printers, Scitex Vision solvent printers, many Mimaki printers, a d-gen textile printer, etc). We list everything about the Luescher JetPrint that worked well and describe its quirks and features that are still being worked on. We also indicate whether the owner feels the printer is worth purchasing.

In September we did a second site-visit case study of another Luscher printer, this time in Missouri.

What a convenient way to have everything prepared by an independent university-based research institute.

Spelling footnote: Luescher, Luscher or Lüscher

Footnote: Luescher is spelled with an umlaut in Swiss-German, Lüscher. In English it can also be spelled Luscher, since accents give most American laser printers indigestion.
