Desktop Size UV LED Flatbed printers seem to be commonly used to print on plastic objects such as cell phone cases, promotional pens, etc.

Besides Mimaki UJF-3042, there are a lot of desktop size Chinese printers using the Epson DX5 printhead. However it seems that all these printers, including the Mimaki, are using solvent-based inks - which would make them not suitable to print on plastic toys (children could lick toxic ink).

1) Does anyone in this community know about desktop size printers that use water-based inks and that would meet safety regulations?

2) Since the Epson DX5 printhead exists in two versions (solvent-based ink and water-based version ink), I wanted to explore a solution where the printhead would be simply switched? Is that a simplistic approach? Would there be issues?

I was burnt badly with a chinese printer from RedDot and I would avoid them completely.
Bought new but never worked, and still not working over a year later. Returned for repair by courier but not fixed initially. Email only support.
They mean well but they will only do money back if 7 days but they told us to await new software and not to install etc which rook a month before we even opened the box.
I will avoid chinese stuff!
