Can I use any type of metal for printing photos with the Roland Metaza MPX80?

The Roland Metaza MPX-80 is capable of imprinting photos to many different types of metals. However, some metals will produce better results than others. HMH Australia offers a wide range of Official Roland Metaza Consumables that have been designed specifically for imprinting photos with the Metaza MPX-80, and will therefore, not tarnish like many of the cheap imitations available on the market.

Can the Roland Metaza MPX80 Imprint to curved surfaces?

YES, the Roland Metaza MPX-80 can imprint to curved surfaces. The Metaza MPX-80 is the first machine in a long line of Roland Metaza machines that CAN print to a curved surface. The Metaza MPX-80 uses a nose-cone that follows along the curve, allowing the User to Engrave or Imprint images to items, such as hip flasks or keyrings. As the Metaza MPX-80 does not have a rotational attachment, it does not have the ability to rotate a pen to do the full circumference, however, using the included Vice to secure the pen in place, the Roland Metaza MPX-80 will comfortably engrave text along a pen.

Diameter Aluminium Standoffs Brass Standoffs
Diameter 13 mm up to 20 kgs up to 40 kgs
Diameter 19 mm up to 50 kgs up to 80 kgs

What is the curing time required for the Excel Glaze in the Excel 5000 Polymenr Curing Unit?

While the curing time of the Excel Glaze in the Excel 5000 Polymer Curing Unit is dependent on a number of factors it can take just 30-45 seconds to harden making it the fastest Ultra Violet Curing unit available.

What is the Difference between the 'Economy' Excel Glaze & the 'Premium' Excel Glaze?

The main difference between the Economy Excel Glaze and the Premium Excel Glaze is that we guarantee the Premium Excel Glaze will stay crystal clear after hardening, without discolouring, for up to 10 years even if it used outdoors. There are other subtle differences between the Premium Excel Glaze and Economy Excel Glaze besides the price, and these can be answered by our Technical Sales Representatives. Please feel free to visit our Contacts page to ask for more information.

Can I use my current Ultra Violet curing unit to produce the Crystal Creations Products?

Due to the potentially damaging nature of high-powered UV light, most Ultra Violet Curing Units are enclosed for User Safety. The Crystal Creations Unit uses very mild Ultra Violet lights so they do not pose a risk to the User. Other ultra violet curing units will be able to cure the UV Glue used in the Crystal Creations process, however, it would be very difficult to ensure that there are no bubbles or imperfections in the Crystals if the Curing Unit is covered. HMH Australia has further information on Crystal Creations and its procsedures, so please feel free to contact us via the detail found on our Contacts page.

Can the Crystal Printer print to other Substrates besides Crystals?

YES the Crystal Printer can print to a wide variety of other products. Our range of Crystal Products suitable for the printer have been pre-coated. Therefore, a very large range of products including wood, tiles, metals and plastics can also be used with this printer if a suitable pre-coat has been applied.

What does 'Direct to Substrate' mean?

Direct to Substrate' is a term used when a printing machine places printed graphics directly on to the substrate being printed to without the use of Intemediate substrates or Heat Presses. The advantages of having this technology in your printer include the speed and ease of producing high quality prints on a variety of substrates, as well as the over all cost, not having to purchase additional equipment or consumables.

The Direct Jet Printer can produce prints on to a large range of substrates including; ceramic tiles, wood, PVC, acrylic, aluminium, stainless steel, glass, electrical cases and fixtures, stone, and much more.
