Prospects for future printing development

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

1 if adding some necessary names and functions 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 T-1 or T-3 line or ISDN or any other communication mode; in other cases, it may be the transmission of files through the Internet or intranet. The documents delivered 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 specially suppressed before they are transmitted to customers. The sintering method is to grind the matrix material and phase change material into powder first, so that the document has a 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. After some printing, click the "add data" button to brush the machine, and the refrigeration system is ready for the access of waterless printing. Anhydrous printing uses only one liquid ink instead of fountain solution. The market demand for this new printing method is increasing

random addition - and no film is used 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. FM points just appeared in 1992, and few users use them. And now the interest in it has restarted

4. CTP technology

ctp technology has several advantages: A. it eliminates some problems that may be caused by the process from film to printing plate; b. It can locate faster because CTP equipment can make the position of points more accurate; c. Omitting the operation steps can make the printing cycle shorter; 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 has always been automatic, from digital pages to the final product. Consider using the internal bar code for tracking, you can know the progress of all aspects of the operation in the current state from the establishment of a job, and because of its components. If CIP3 is an open and non private method, it is an acceptable method. Otherwise, the market has to find a better way

6. Technology integration

putting an inkjet system into a printing machine is an example of technology integration. 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 make the printing reproduction effect better

it is possible to output a digital file multiple times from one file - the file between the application file and the rip file - to any proofing or printing device. 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, and the typical application is new anti-counterfeiting printing [1]

8. Digital advertisements

whether in tiff/it 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 placed PDF will allow these smart files to be directly inserted into quarkpress or PageMaker pages, which can include text, images, colors, fonts and other information
