Eight trends of printing development in the future cannot be ignored
With the appearance of CTP, the digital development of printing industry is more and more rapid. In such a trend, what is the development trend of the enterprise? 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 long-distance communication. In some cases, it may be a T-1 or T-3 line or ISDN or any other mode of communication; in other cases, it may be the transmission of files through the Internet or intranet. The transferred documents include electronic work orders and self-processing documents for different steps in the process of digital workflow, which organically connect customers and printing services, which has never been the case 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 proofing in the customer's own office. The problem is how to manage the color of the files sent back to the customer. Whether it is ink-jet proofing, heat sublimation proofing, or other types of printing, documents need to be processed professionally before they are transferred to customers, so that the documents have certain color control. The debate between with and without outlets will continue into the next century.
3. Waterless printing
The advantages of waterless printing in reducing waste and improving quality are obvious. But there are only a few plate suppliers, and printing is very special, which greatly limits its wide acceptance. At present, CTP system produces digital watermark free version through several suppliers, and some printing machines are ready for refrigeration system to wait for the access of waterless printing. In waterless printing, only one kind of liquid ink is used instead of fountain solution. The market demand for this new printing method is increasing.
Random screening - and do not use film. CTP system makes FM screening easier, FM screening era is coming. Using CTP system can make the work better, and its market share is also increasing. In 1992, the FM network just appeared, almost no users use this network. And now interest in it has begun anew.
4. CTP Technology
Several advantages of CTP technology are as follows: A. some problems caused by the process from film to plate are eliminated;
b. It can be located faster because CTP equipment can make the location of dots more accurate;
c. The printing cycle can be shortened by eliminating the operation steps; D. in most cases, the quality can be guaranteed to be better.
Current sales figures show that CTP is occupying the market.
5. Digital to dot to print
Pixel to page to product. Process control is always automatic, from digital pages to final products. Consider the use of internal barcode for tracking, you can start to know the status of all aspects of job progress in the current state from the establishment of a job. If CIP3 is an open, non private method, it is an acceptable one. Otherwise, the market has to find a better way.
6. Technology integration
Putting an inkjet system into a printer is an example of technology integration. One of the best examples of system integration heard recently is the color printing service provided by indigo and Xeikon printers. First of all, use Xeikon printing machine to print a large number of sheets, and then print black ink on indigo machine to make the print more distinctive. The integration of offset press and inkjet printer, these efforts are to print and copy better results.
Multiple output of a digital document from a document between an application document and a rip document to any proofing or printing device becomes possible. Acrobat PDF is the most promising method. It can move files from the device that generates files to the device that copies files, eliminating postscript's incompetence and speeding up the workflow.
7. Variable data printing
No matter using toner or inkjet, 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 of Xerox docucolor system and cannon clc1000 system have exceeded all sales of high-end digital printing machines. They have the ability to output direct mail and customized products. The typical application is the new anti-counterfeiting printing.
8. Digital advertising
Whether in TIFF / it or PDF format, advertisements will be inserted into newspapers and magazines in the form of electronic documents, because these publications will be output by CTP. The biggest news mentioned here is that "placed PDF" will allow these smart files to be inserted directly into quarkpress or PageMaker pages, which can include text, images, colors, fonts and other information.
