The future offset printing will become more intelligent after more multicolor printing

Nowadays, offset printing is developing towards more colorization (such as 12 colors), double-sided printing, multi-function, and high automation. For the different needs of packaging and printing, from the paper printing, coating, bronzing, die-cutting the entire process of on-line production, in full compliance with the ClP3, CIP4 integrated production requirements, is a universal trend.
In the past few years, the relatively poor DI direct imaging printing on the machine, has now launched a different number, more varieties. Such as Mitsubishi's direct imaging press in the machine. It pays more attention to the development trend of high efficiency, flexibility, and versatility of printers. At the same time in Heidelberg [Topics, Products, Encyclopedia], Roland, KBA, Komori, Mitsubishi. The new products of famous manufacturers such as Akiyama are reflected in different degrees to meet the current needs of printing multiple varieties, fewer prints, high quality, and short cycle.
For example, in Drupa 2004, Komori presented a variety of new offset printing machines in seven exhibition areas in a hall covering an area of ​​2,000 square meters with the concept of “freedom without limits”. The new offset printing rotary press is particularly attractive in this printing press. In the live demonstration, 15 minutes for three editions, each printing 2,000 sheets of 4 colors on both sides, plus on-line glazing, drying, folding, cutting, etc. at one go, to provide qualified products in the terminal of the printing press, change the version, ink pre Settings, registrations and other operations are all operated by only one person, and its high efficiency and versatility are amazing.
Waterless offset printing is still a “minority”, and only Toray Industries of Japan and KBA of Germany have this type of molding products. Although the advantages of waterless offset printing are obvious in terms of quality and environmental protection, due to the dedicated machines and main consumables used, the cost is higher. Especially in the current situation of competitively lowering the printing price, unless the state strengthens environmental protection, it is generally not easy. Promote use.
For post-press production suppliers, it is generally considered that post-printing and printing systems are integrated and integrated with production. It is a trend to focus on equipment automation and intelligent control. With the development of information technology, post-printing process equipment is connected to data networks. From manual to automatic control. The automation and intelligence of postpress equipment is the key to achieving the integration of digital printing and web platform in the whole process of printing production. It has far-reaching significance. The well-known Martini company has launched a large-scale, highly automated production line for newspapers and large-scale and super-large-scale publications. It can be integrated with integrated production and digital printing to realize personalized production systems based on India and India. Involved in post-print folding, matching, packaging, ordering, cutting and other aspects, the product is rich and varied, the variety is complete, forming a landscape.
According to Japan's Horizon Corporation, which accepts prepress data, the equipment for integrated production uses the specially designed logo “i2i” to mark the design pattern and the company name prefix “H”, which is similar to the two “i” English. The use of "smart interface" headers indicates that the post-press equipment is the key to adapting to digital integrated production technology. MBO's 20-fold discount multi-spec, high-performance, high-speed folding machine has great significance in simplifying hardcover production processes and reducing the cost of sewing books.
