Advantages and Disadvantages of Hybrid Printer

The hybrid printing platform enables the printing of roll material and rigid materials on a single device, which is useful for companies with less room space or who often need to print two materials.

The hybrid / tape system can shorten the delivery time between printed boards. Because the operator can stack the board, input the material almost no lag time. In addition, the hybrid printing platform usually has two forms: reel to the flatbed (RTF) and flatbed to the reel (FTR). In other words, the printer can first consider the roll to roll printing, and then matching the platform and printer convergence, to ensure that can handle the plane material. Of course, you can also consider the platform equipment, and then optional reel feeding system to ensure that the equipment can handle the roll material.
One drawback that hybrid printer need to be mentioned is that some functions on roll-to-roll printing devices, such as dual axes, front-end overprint systems, are not configured on hybrid print platforms.
