Inkjet printing, the mainstream technology in the future fast printing market

at the 11th Beijing international printing information exchange conference, 18 speakers introduced this year's new technologies, new processes, new equipment and new materials, of which 3 introduced this year's most popular technology inkjet printing. Yang Bin, vice president of Beijing Founder Electronics Co., Ltd., asserted that in the past, we always regarded ink-jet printing as a supplement to traditional printing. Now it seems that digital printing represented by ink-jet printing will challenge traditional printing and become one of the mainstream printing methods. The report from the British paper printing and Packaging Technology Research Association (Pira) that uses rotating metal wheels to drive abrasives such as mineral sand, sand and sand mixed with water to wear alloy materials (Pira) shows that in the next few years, many printing methods will show negative growth all over the world, but digital printing will show a high-speed growth trend

◆ in the field of digital printing, inkjet imaging technology is superior to laser imaging technology

◆ from the perspective of inkjet printing nozzles, on-demand inkjet is superior to continuous inkjet

Technology: it is significantly superior to other digital printing technologies

now the fastest growing technology recognized in the industry is digital printing. Yang Bin introduced that in the field of digital printing, there are two typical technical solutions: one is laser imaging technology, One is inkjet imaging technology. Comparing these two technologies, we can see that inkjet imaging technology has the most development potential in the field of digital printing

in terms of printing speed, there is a speed bottleneck in electrostatic laser imaging. The fastest color electrostatic laser imaging speed in the world is more than 100 A4 pages per minute; The inkjet imaging speed is 2000 A4 pages per minute, and the content of each page is different. From the perspective of format and color deck, the largest format of electrostatic laser imaging is a3+, and it is rare to exceed a3+, and the manufacturing cost expands sharply; The inkjet imaging nozzle adopts the splicing method, which can be made in any size, and the chromaticity is relatively flexible. Four colors, six colors and seven colors can be spliced as much as you want. In terms of media adaptability, electrostatic laser imaging is contact printing, which is generally limited to paper media; Inkjet printing is non-contact printing. There is a gap between the nozzle and the printing medium, and the medium range is very wide. Paper, film, wood, and even things with concave and convex surfaces can be printed by inkjet printing. In terms of operating costs, the cost of toner is high, the cost of ink is low, and the cost of inkjet printing is lower than that of electrostatic laser imaging. From the perspective of hybrid printing, electrostatic laser imaging cannot be combined with traditional printing, and inkjet printing equipment can be installed on traditional printing equipment. In terms of inkjet printing, there are two types of foaming agents distributed by sprinkler technology: composite foaming agents, one is continuous inkjet, and the other is on-demand inkjet. Comparatively speaking, on-demand inkjet is obviously better than continuous inkjet, so the current application is mainly on-demand inkjet

Yang Xiaoyong, the account manager of British Saier company, believes that digital printing has four advantages: 100% continuous workflow, printing variable data, no need to make, process or clean film, silk, printing plate or roller, and shorten the operation cycle

◆ it is mature in the fields of large-scale ink-jet printing, billing and direct mail. Commercial

◆ it has great potential in the fields of commercial printing and publishing printing

Application: it has great potential in the fields of printing and industry

Yang Bin presented the latest analysis report of the British paper printing and Packaging Technology Research Association (Pira) "global ink-jet printing market forecast" at the conference. The report showed that ink-jet printing is mainly used in printing and industry. Printing field, including large-scale inkjet printing, commercial printing, publishing and printing, billing, direct mail, labels and packaging, etc; Industrial fields, including food, medicine, electronic printing and machinery manufacturing. In these two fields, inkjet printing technology has a very broad development prospects

Yang Xiaoyong believes that inkjet printing is applicable to almost any packaging, because inkjet has nothing to do with the substrate, such as self-adhesive and drum labels, soft packaging, tin plated iron sheet printing for iron cans and decorative containers, aluminum beverage cans, aluminum aerosol packaging, plastic covers, plastic containers, safety printing, handbags, blister packaging, cartons, etc

Yang Bin analyzed the application of digital printing in various fields. In the field of large-scale inkjet printing, billing and direct mail, inkjet printing has achieved mature applications; In the field of digital labels, inkjet technology is the most suitable for use, because there are many label media, and inkjet printing has good adaptability; In the field of commercial printing and publishing printing, inkjet printing prototype is emerging and has great development potential
