United Barcode Systems (UBS) Aplink UV2 and UVX Series printers allow high definition text, graphics, barcodes and 2D codes to be printed onto non-porous surfaces including plastic, metal, glass, coated carton and EPS polystyrene. All printers use the renowned Seiko 72mm piezo-electric print engine with polymer based inks that are cured instantly by a UV LED array.

High-reolution printing for non-porous surfaces

Aplink UV2 and UVX systems employ advanced UV LED array technology to cure polymer-based inks instantly allowing printing onto non-porous materials including plastic, metal, glass, coated carton, packaging films and EPS ploystyrene. No solvents are used ensuring printheads do not dry up even when left for prolonged periods without printing. Once cured, print is durable, high-contrast and waterproof.

Aplink UVX Up to 4 x 72mm printheads from one controller with separate UV LED arrays


Easy to Operate

Aplink UV2 systems include a built-in 5.7" colour touch screen controller. UVX systems have a separate 8" colour touch screen terminal. In both cases, print messages may be created remotely using UBS Label software and stored on the controller for stand-alone printing or a host system may be permanenty connected.
