Hot printing technology in today's global printing industry
Printing was able to still standing today, has its own reason.Almost every a technological innovation or revolution, will take a new step, printing industry and arouse people's unlimited reverie.In recent years, digital technology has become a hot topic in printing industry, global printing and publishing company also gradually formed the three major groups: the early adopters of digital technique, supporters of the offset printing technology, as well as the creator of the organic combination of digital and offset printing technology.Then, as time goes by, today's printing industry and what are the notable or hot technology new markets?Let's go to inventory.
A controllable white ink and diverse technologies
Printing white text on a dark background or design is never a simple thing, fortunately, a "white ink" technology.This is designed for the HP company Indigo digital printing machine and the development of a product, its opacity is mainly determined by ejecting ink droplets of the number.Printers use white drops, the more the printed text or pattern, the more opaque.Although its price is more expensive, but it can give users a better visual effect.
In the process of digital printing, equipment can walk in a paper in the process of by adjusting the number of drops of ink jet to control the printing effect.The offset printing process, in order to get the same printing effect, users must be at least 5 times for the same substrates printed.Despite the emergence of "white ink" technology for white hot stamping, silk printing or plastic thermal transfer printing provides a cheaper solution, but in the aspect of the texture and feel it was a lesser than manual processing.The biggest characteristic of this technology is, in short, can count the droplets ejected by controlling the printer ink printed different visual effect, especially in all kinds of color printing substrates.
For designers, "white ink" technology for its brought infinite possibility.It can be on the transparent material printing labels and packaging into a reality.For the production supervisor, can now be abandoned before the first use dark ink printed on white paper, and then you will need to present the practice of text or image area space.Nevertheless, in white ink printing text or image elements are still facing many challenges, such as alignment problem, whether in the digital printing machine or offset press, have not find a satisfactory solution.
Second, fill the blank of nano printing technology
Invented by the father of the digital printing, benny landa, nano printing technology (nanography), since the date of birth is placed the fill gaps between offset printing and digital printing market.It works like this: the print head first into landa nano ink, it is a water-based ink containing nanoscale pigment particles.When the printing ink to transfer to a heating blanket, and then transfer to the substrates, can be compatible with the substrates are mainly without special processing standard coated paper or coated paper and plastic packaging film or label paper, etc.
The biggest advantage of nano printing technology lies in its ultra small ink particles.After reach nanoscale size, many characteristics of the material will change.The nano ink performance is outstanding in this field.Due to a hard, this kind of ink has strong resistance to abrasion and scratch resistance.Nano ink can absorb more light, therefore can provide a wider CMYK color gamut (15% more than offset printing).In addition, the tiny pigment particles can also make it more uniform ink film, the image clearer.
Once the nano ink transferred to the heating of rubber cloth, it contains moisture will evaporate, and leave a thin ink film.So people don't use the ink membrane drying - such as this are common in offset printing and digital printing process, can be directly into the next production steps.In addition, the nanometer printing also can let users printing more in the area of the printing color, and the supersaturated problem will not occur.Nano ink up to eight kinds of color printing, in 600 dpi resolution to 1200 dpi, on sheet-fed and web press speed can reach 13000 pages per hour and 200 m/min.
Benny, landa in 2012 drew the first nano printing press of the exhibition on display caused strong repercussions in the industry.But so far, there has been no any enterprise purchase or use of the device.
3, magical creation of 3 d printing technology
Made in 3 d printing, also known as a "material", is a kind of additive materials according to the 3 d data model entities in a part, usually in plastic, metal and other materials into one layer overlay.Its production process is to use software to make a first article 3 d perspective, and then send it to the 3 d printers are layered, final reoccupy laser printers, such as the material solidified layers.
With the continuous improvement of technical level, 3 d printing will bring infinite possibility to many fields.For example, in the medical field, the technique can through the production of artificial heart-lung to extend the life of the people;And in the field of construction, the students can use the technology to watch and study their design effect.In addition, parents can also use the book made in toys or other props to achieve the goal of learning through.
The biggest obstacle facing the 3 d printing is that people lack of imagination and high cost of 3 d printing.Thankfully, 3 d printing consumables and equipment prices are falling, especially in some big brand suppliers in the fight for a bigger share of the market and fierce competition.Recently, Microsoft announced that it will make using ordinary computer print 3 d objects with written in Word document and send it to the printer to print.The company's latest update Windows8.1 system adds a 3 d print file support module.All in all, we will soon be able to see affordable desktop 3 d printer, as we have experienced in the presence of desktop publishing system just before.
