Eight trends of future printing development can not be ignored

with the emergence of CTP, the digital development of printing industry is also faster and faster. In such a trend, what is the development trend of enterprises? In short, there are the following eight development trends

1. Digital connection with customers

printing operations are made into electronic documents, and all documents are transmitted through high-speed remote communication. In some cases, it may be a T-1 or T-3 line or ISDN or any other communication method; in other cases, it may be the transmission of files through the Internet or intranet. The transmitted documents include electronic work orders and self-processing documents used for different steps in the process of digital workflow, which organically connect customers and printing services, which has never been seen before

2. Remote Proofing

proofing is the most important part of the printing industry. It is very meaningful to proofing before entering the workflow, and it is more meaningful to produce proofs in the customer's own office. The problem is how to manage the color of the documents sent back to the customer. Whether it is inkjet proofing, thermal sublimation proofing, or other types of printing, documents need to be professionally processed before they are transmitted to customers, so that the documents have certain color control. The debate with and without points will continue into the next century

3. Waterless printing

the advantages of waterless printing in reducing waste and improving quality are obvious. However, there are only a few printing plate suppliers, and printing is also very special, which greatly limits its wide acceptance. At present, CTP system produces digital waterless version through several suppliers, and some printing machines have prepared refrigeration system to wait for the access of waterless printing. Waterless printing uses only one kind of liquid ink instead of fountain solution. The market demand for this new printing method is increasing

random addition - without film CTP system makes FM plus easier, and the era of FM plus is coming. Using CTP system can make the work better, and its market share is also growing. In 1992, FM points just appeared, and few users used them. Dr. Achala de Mel found that 3D printing allows multiple combinations to be created in the scaffold (it is difficult for traditional manufacturing methods to achieve such efficiency and repeatability). Now he is interested in it again. LG, SK and meimeike have all purchased 3-yuan material patents from 3m

4. CTP technology

ctp technology has several advantages: A. it eliminates some problems that may be caused by the process from film to plate

b. it can locate faster because CTP equipment can make the position of points more accurate

c. the printing cycle can be shortened by omitting the operation steps; d. In most cases, better quality can be guaranteed

the current sales figures show that CTP is occupying this market

5. Digital to point to print

pixel to page to product. Process control is always automatic, from the digital page to the final product. Consider using the internal barcode for tracking. You can know the progress of all aspects of the operation in the current state from the establishment of a job. If CIP3 is an open, non private method, it is an acceptable method. Otherwise, the market has to find a better way

6. Technology integration

an example of technology integration is to put an inkjet system sent by the Chinese side to assist Mongolia in restoring the historical and cultural sites of Liao Dynasty ancient pagodas into the printing press. The best example of system integration heard recently is the color printing service jointly provided by indigo and Xeikon printers. First, use Xeikon printing machine to print a large number of sheets, and then print black ink on indigo machine to make the prints more distinctive. With the integration of offset press and inkjet printer, these efforts are better for printing reproduction

multiple output of a digital file it is possible to output from one file - the file between the application file and the rip file - to any proofing or printing equipment. Acrobat PDF is the most promising method. It can move files from the device that generates files to the device that copies files, eliminating the incompetence of postscript and speeding up the workflow

7. Variable data printing

whether toner or inkjet is used, electronic printing is developing rapidly, just as some new mid-range digital color printing systems are entering the market. In less than a year, the sales volume of Xerox docucolor system and cannon clc1000 system has exceeded all the sales volume of high-end digital printers. They have the ability to output direct mail and customize products. (7) international cooperation and exchange has accelerated the expansion. The typical application is new anti-counterfeiting printing

8. Digital advertising

whether in tiffit or PDF format, advertisements will be inserted into newspapers and magazines in the form of electronic files, because these publications will be output by CTP. The biggest thing mentioned here is that the placed PDF will allow these smart files to be directly inserted into quarkpress or PageMaker pages. The files can include text, images, colors, fonts and other information
