About the development and trend of inkjet printing

the first is Kodak's thermal CTP. Kodak's plate making machine has a thermal sensitivity of 300 sheets/second, which is very difficult. The reason why it can do this is that the plate used is a thermal plate with special sensitivity, about 70 MJ, which is much higher than the traditional one. And the total power of its two groups of lasers can reach 45 watts, which is probably much higher than many thermal laser heads at present. This is why it can reach such a high speed

today, I will mainly talk about inkjet technology and its development trend

I. technical highlights of drupa in 2008

second, the characteristics of inkjet imaging technology

third, the development of inkjet imaging technology

IV. application fields and development trends

when we talk about the highlights of drupa, we still want to show you from the perspective of a broad vision. You must know the development direction of industry technology. If you don't know this, you will have everything in all kinds. As I just told you about SEBS foaming, their folding technology is very fancy. When I went to their booth to see the folding machine, I was basically dazzled and made it very professional

show you the overall technological development trend of the printing industry. In terms of our country's excess, it is to say goodbye to lead and fire, walk through light and electricity, and move towards 0 and 1. That is to say, we have gone through the analog era and the analog + digital era, and we are moving towards the digital era

What does

cip/cim stand for

bending and compression modulus of elasticity is the application of computer integrated manufacturing technology in the printing field. Among the several manufacturers mentioned today, digital workflow is mentioned without exception. In fact, digital workflow is only a part of computer production. Secondly, you can see the automation of printing equipment, including post press equipment. One emphasizes automation and the other emphasizes digitalization. If we want to realize the integrated production of computers, we can't do it without the automation of printing machines. Secondly, you can also see the integration of various information systems. Gaobao and Heidelberg [special topics, products, encyclopedia] [special topics, products, encyclopedia] have all shown you this aspect. The integration of this information system has gone beyond our imagination. In fact, it has integrated the control information at the level of printing production, the management information of printing production design, and the enterprise resource information and business information we are involved in. We say that the information at the three levels has been integrated into a whole, which is also a very worthwhile place to see. Maybe different manufacturers provide different products, and they are all working in this direction. The fourth is the integration of production management. We are talking about some concepts of CIP3 and CIP4, which are developed in this aspect

there is also a CTP. In CTP, I mainly want to talk to you about a technical basis for the development of on-demand printing, that is, digital printing

there are many digital printing, but two are the most important. One is based on toner imaging system and technology, and the other is based on inkjet imaging system and technology, so all the content I'm talking about today is based on inkjet imaging digital printing technology. This development in the future may be beyond our expectation. It is a huge development. Why take this question? Looking at the previous exhibitions in CTP drupa, I can see that I have given examples of the last four exhibitions

from the beginning of CEPS technology in the 1970s to the disappearance of CTF technology in the late 1990s, to the rise of CTF technology in the 1980s to the disappearance of this technology today, to the rise of CTP in the early 1990s to the vigorous development now, and the development of CIM computer integration technology is the same, in the key to the development of these technologies. For example, drupa 95, although it was not called CTP drupa at the beginning, CTP has moved from laboratory to industrialized application after 95 drupa. We boil it down to this first year

finally, let's show you its application fields and development trends

the application fields of inkjet are probably the following. In fact, to sum up, the field of printing is omnipresent, and the non printing field is constantly developing its own imaging. There are probably several typical ones

1. Large format color printing. This was first done with silk printing or even large format offset printing. Basically, these things are not applicable in this field. All are painted with large format color. In the form of monopoly

2. The mainstream of home/office digital color output terminals. There are two options for this terminal, one is toner, and the other is inkjet. It can be said that inkjet printing is the mainstream way

3. Digital color proofing (including contract proofing) is the mainstream. This is basically the dominant position of monopoly in our country

4. The main technology used in high-speed variable digital printing. Among them, toner is a good performance, but inkjet will also be a trend

5. The main technology used in the output of digital color photos. Now it is silver salt sensitive paper with laser scanning equipment for washing. But after the development, digital inkjet will probably become the most mainstream equipment. Now many manufacturers, such as Epson. HP competes desperately in this field, because this market will change completely in the future, and everyone hopes to occupy a place in this market field in the future

6. Textile spray painting. This field has been used for a long time, and there should be a lot of development in the future. The growth of China's plastic machinery industry has ushered in the golden age of Kemen growth and rapid growth

7. In other areas that we have thought of and haven't thought of, maybe inkjet will work

to sum up, how important is inkjet technology? So far, we have always regarded inkjet technology as a special printing method. Maybe in the future, it may become a basic printing method by the time of this century, and it will play its most important role in the field of printing and printing related fields, with two-level limit protection of program control and machinery

therefore, inkjet technology, including the computer integrated production technology I mentioned earlier, is our biggest focus in drupa this time. You may see that different manufacturers can display different devices
