  • Detail

The industry has a popular explanation of the roadmap for the development of printing technology. The color sequence is to say goodbye to lead and fire, walk through light and electricity, and enter 0 and 1. From a technical point of view, lead and fire belong to the era of analog technology, light and electricity belong to the era of policies and regulations in which analog and digital coexist, and 0 and 1 belong to the digital era. Digital printing is an important development direction of the printing industry in the digital era. It is opening up a blue ocean of printing, with both challenges and opportunities

digital printing is a printing method that uses digital signals to directly control the position and intensity of the colorant attached to the substrate, rather than forming the final visual image by other means. In essence, it belongs to a printing method with no plate and 100% variable information

digital printing has the advantages of plate free, pressure free and non-contact. There is no need to make plates without plates, and there is no input of corresponding equipment, consumables and other costs; Pressure free equipment operation means that digital printing can image on media of different materials and mechanical strength (inkjet) with low noise; Non contact refers to the non-contact state between the ink jet and the substrate. According to the different imaging methods, the distance between the two is 1mm ~ 10mm, which makes digital printing (especially the digital printing system based on ink jet imaging) able to image on flat media or even curved media of different thickness, and on media of different formats

the above advantages determine that digital printing technology has variable information and personalized production capacity. Printing detection is particularly suitable for building on-demand printing production and service system. Because digital printing does not have the input of plate making and related costs, the final prints do not need to share the related costs, so digital printing has a price advantage in the short version market, especially in the very short version market

anti counterfeiting printing based on digital and network platform

digital printing needs a complete system solution suitable for digital printing, that is, it needs digital printing machine, supporting digital environment and resource composition, and it also needs to build a suitable production and operation mode. Of course, there is no doubt that digital printing machine is the core of digital printing

as a new printing production method, printing only creates part of the product value in the whole value chain of digital printing, such as 1/6 ticket printing, while other values are realized by the digital environment, digital resource integration, network transmission, prepress design and processing, on-demand post press, delivery network and channel, and site construction. Therefore, such a way of sales before production based on digital and network platform needs to build a new business network and operation management mode

for example, ABCDE is five stores connected by networks. They are a virtual overall over packaging, distributed in regions with developed commerce, economy and entertainment. Each store can cover a certain area to ensure that the final product can be delivered to customers within 24 hours after receiving the order; Different stores can cover a city, region or even cross-border coverage, just like the current popular cellular mobile system that reaches 3.125 times. Consumers can order at store a and pick up the goods at store a or deliver them by store a; It can also be ordered in store B, delivered in store C or delivered by store C; You can also order in any area covered by the network, deliver at the designated store or deliver by the designated store

mature technology packaging anti-counterfeiting

digital printing technology has been very mature. At present, electrostatic photography technology and inkjet imaging technology are the most widely used. Take inkjet imaging technology as an example. Ink can be applied in a wide range of sizes, ranging from a few millimeters to several meters or even more than 10 meters. The printing speed can reach 1000 square meters per hour (wide width system) or more than 2000 A4 pages per minute (narrow width system). In the field of wide width printing, inkjet system has completely driven silk printing and offset printing out of the market. However, the resolution of electrostatic photography system can exceed 1000dpi, and each pixel can show multiple gray levels, and the resolution of inkjet system can even exceed 2400dpiefi. Both of them can reach the level of offset printing quality in terms of comprehensive printing quality, because the low quality of digital printing has become history. Digital printing can use various inks and ordinary paper. The inkjet digital printing system using UV ink can spray on all media except water and air, such as glass, metal, ceramics, food, plastics, paper, etc. Electronic supervision code

digital printing is widely used in the market, including large format color printing, display and advertising offset printing machines, digital color proofing, personalized marketing printing, variable data printing and data printing services, digital printing, internal text printing and personalized print out, government policies and supervision, personalized label and electronic supervision code printing, etc. Online publishing

output value increased by two digits ticket printing

unfortunately, there is no systematic statistical data on the market growth of digital printing at present, but some sporadic data can still have a quantitative grasp of the growth of digital printing from one side. According to the data released by Yingchuan company, the average annual growth rate of the total output value of global printing from 2005 to 2010 was 1.7%, while the average annual growth rate of the output value of digital printing was as high as 12.4%; The average annual growth rate of China's total output value of printing in the same period was 17% variable data printing, of which the average annual growth rate of digital printing output value was as high as 66%

let's take a look at the sampling survey results of keyin media on domestic mainstream digital printer brand suppliers. In the year from June 2006 to May 2007, China installed 5480 new inkjet equipment, accounting for 18.9% of the total installed capacity; 1591 new black-and-white toner equipment, accounting for 86.5% of the total installed capacity; 489 EFIS of newly installed color toner equipment, accounting for 52.1% of the total installed capacity. From these data, it can be inferred that the annual growth rate of digital printing installed capacity in the same year should be at least at a high two digit or even three digit growth level

all the printing equipment of digital printing

digital printing can be applied in a wide range of fields. First, digital printing can be applied to the field of on-demand publishing. Printing on demand is to sell first and then produce. Printing one copy after selling can not only avoid the waste of product inventory caused by overestimation of the market, but also avoid the embarrassment of product out of stock caused by underestimation of the market. These problems are completely inevitable in the publishing system based on traditional printing

secondly, digital printing can be applied to bookstores in the future. As shown in the figure, bookstores in the future can also be called cafes, printing houses and color separations, and maybe they can also be seen as publishing houses. In such bookstores, there are neither bookshelves nor paper samples, but only computer touch screens. One end of the touch screen is connected to the networked digital resource library. The capacity and space of this resource library are completely free from the physical space of the bookstore, and should be unlimited in technology; The other end is connected with the digital printing system. Chinese printing enterprises are strong, and you can complete the printing and binding of your choice and purchase products at any time. You can find and determine the products you need on the touch screen (print personalized service strategies, brushes and publications based on the needs of different customer groups), and enjoy a cup of free coffee. Before you finish drinking coffee, your book or magazine has been printed and packaged in front of you. Such bookstores are gradually becoming a reality

thirdly, digital printing can also be applied to the "China Printing blue book" in the field of security printing, that is, personalized information such as identity can be embedded in tickets, vouchers, whole, cards, train tickets, and personalized information such as identity can also be embedded in printed products (such as internal documents) for tracking and inquiry (such as gloss printing, fluorescent printing, etc.), all of which can be completed without adding additional costs and introducing additional processes, It is beyond the reach of traditional printing
