uv printer control systemFOIF System–Flash On Ink Firing System.
Intelligently powered by BrotherJet FOIF system, BJ UV1800 printer electronically activates the UV LEDs when firing ink only, maximizing the Printer Head value(8 months) and lamp life value to 25,000 working hours. Its protecting the whole ink system at the same including ink pump, wiper, damper, and cap tops.

COD System—Control On Demand System.
Designed for flexibility and simplicity, BrotherJet COD system is offering digital controls for the UV LED Working way for different materials and working environments. It allows to control the UV LED in more flexibility of Curing direction( Bi-direction, Uni-direction) on printing demand and delivers the best printing color quality and drying speed. I.E, for glass print in cold environment, we would work with BI-Direction printing to ensure the best printing quality . Controlled by one click on BrotherJet control panels.

SWCC System—Safe Water Cooling Control System.
Designed for safety and simplicity, ArtisJet SWCC system is working with digital industrial chilling system and liquid in low running cost. With 300ML of industrial cooling liquid recycling system ,the SWCC liquid inside lasts for 1 year until refilled. The chilling liquid level is visible and refillable on demand to avoid the burn of UV lamps due to the lack of liquid in the recycling chilling system.

Y Axis Movement Control SystemY Axis Movement Control System
Y axis movement refers to the paper/media feeding system when the working table moves front or back.
