Bubble film machines are excellent for the home and small business. They are often purchased with a home business in mind, but they can be used in a variety of other businesses. The machines are low cost alternatives to photo paper and create professional-quality results. The advantage of using them is that the finished product can be used on all sizes of projects without additional work being done.
Bubble film machines are designed with a head that can be opened and closed. The heads can be configured to turn the film roll, or the machine can be set to push the film into the roll. The company that makes the machine has taken the time to ensure that there is sufficient oxygen in the chambers. This ensures that the heat of the film does not escape and burn the ink used in the print. For home use, machines can be programmed so that they automatically turn on and off during the project.
Bubble machines do not have a cooling system. This means that once the job is done the film is ready to be used. There is a warming system to keep the film warm while it cools before printing. The bubble will cool over a period of time depending on how long the job was and the air temperature outside. A drying system prevents excessive drying of the film.
Bubble film machines use black ink, which is compatible with almost all printers, including laser, ink jet, fax and copier. Inkjet printers typically are not compatible, though ink jet printers often will print successfully if a toner cartridge is added. Bubble printers, which use carbon-based ink, are not compatible with laser and fax printers. The machines do not require a power supply or cooling system, and generally work in complete darkness.
Bubble film machines will typically print six to eight sheets of 12 x 16 inch paper. This allows for varied sizes, depending on the size of the client. Many printer ink cartridges are compatible with this printer, and the machines should have a choice of cartridges. This is an economical choice for a home printer.
Billed ink that has been properly formulated is available from the manufacturers of the machine, and is guaranteed to produce high quality, guaranteed results. The cartridges can be used with any printer without the need for changing cartridges. Automatic rewinding mechanisms assure the film remains secure while the film is being printed. Manual rewinds can slow down the printing process. This can cause a problem when the document is delivered as a PDF.
Bubble film machines have become increasingly popular in the home. They allow the home to produce professionally-produced and attractive photos with little extra effort. A printer with a carbon based ink film can produce professional-quality results. It is easy to use, and also economical. Inexpensive and practical, this machine will save the home-office budget.
