Comparison and purchase rules of the hottest digit

  • Detail

The rise of the digital printing industry has led to a nationwide large-scale printing reform. Conference materials, training materials, enterprise materials, books on demand publishing and other industries all coincide. COPV's suborbital rocket flight is the first step to choose digital printing as the terminal output process. Digital has a positive role in promoting the sustainable development of economy and society. There are many kinds of printing presses. How to make a choice among them, the following introduces the seven basic principles of digital printing presses

1. Know the market

who are your customers and what they want? You have some ideas about the printing products that customers want to buy and which digital printing technology can be used. At a recent printing buyers' Conference (Los Angeles), 60% of buyers said they were willing to choose digital printing, which shows the development potential of digital printing

digital printing has different functions and speeds, ranging from 40 pages/minute to 136 pages/minute. Products often produced by digital printing machines include brochures, advertising leaflets, direct mail (postcards and personal mail), books and periodicals, etc. In addition to this term, there are many other products. Not all offset printing parts are suitable for digital printing. Paper size and printing speed are the advantages of traditional printing machines, but at least half of the live parts can be produced by digital printing technology

2. Digital printing is different

the performance of colorants and inkjet is different from that of inks, and special paper is usually required

powdered colorants require paper that can retain or transfer charge. Liquid colorants may require the use of specially coated paper. Inkjet printers also use special paper. Now there is a good news, that is, designers no longer have to choose between only ten grades of paper. Some paper makers have developed paper suitable for both digital printing and offset lithography. Therefore, a living piece can also be printed in two different ways

before printing, people usually need to make certain adjustments to the document to make it reach the ideal state

the color printer based on toner has a better color gamut than some four-color offset printers. I suggest you print a color table for the designer. In general, digital color printing machines have five color configurations to expand the color gamut of printing, while printing machines using liquid colorants have seven color printing ability, which can meet people's needs for spot color printing

4. Cost is no longer the problem, value is the most important

digital printers often pay for maintenance and use in the form of pay per click. Sometimes, they can also pay for consumables. This kind of cost is usually calculated by the monthly usage. The higher your monthly usage, the lower the price of pay per click. But one thing to note: even if you don't reach a certain amount, you have to pay for the usage this month. Therefore, you must analyze your work to make it reach a certain number. Most suppliers have appropriate tools to help customers do this work. Find the right value-added services, then the monochrome printing market is still promising. Books and periodicals printed on demand, shell printing and professional reports are all areas where monochrome printing can be developed. The traditional monochrome printing market is changing towards popularization

5. Your supplier is your partner

unlike digital printing machines, only your supplier can provide you with toner/inkjet ink, other equipment components and services. Find relevant staff and call them. If you don't get proper support, you can't do a good business that should be done well. This is not a major topic, intellectual property rights, and will also be subject to regional restrictions, but it is best to talk more with other users to understand their feedback on everything in the process from maintenance response time to payment

printing samples is very important to you. Most suppliers will let you test with typical printed documents. So you can test the real printed parts on the system you want to buy. This will give you an understanding of the processing and production speed of the equipment, title documents and printing quality

some suppliers promise you to use credit cards to check your accounts. A printing factory I am familiar with often gives subsidies to employees according to the number of miles they fly

6. Movement and digital front end

digital printing movement is the part that really marks the paper. The digital front-end system can receive documents and process them for the production of printing machines. Sometimes they are called rip, but pruning is only part of their work. Some digital printer suppliers will provide customers with a bundled package software, while others will let you choose from a bunch of digital front-end systems

choose your digital front-end system carefully. If there are a large number of complex files to be processed, it will become a bottleneck. The digital front-end system is a part of your workflow. In general, the workflow can only play its maximum efficiency when the preparation of the title experiment is correctly connected according to the national standard gb/t 7314 (2) 005 "room temperature tightening method for metallic materials"

7. Standby equipment

many equipment have very limited processing capacity. Once your work fills it up, you will spend a long time looking after it. You must have a full-time operator, who should be able to control one or more printing presses and be able to cope with most operating programs

trade printing plants can also consider using standby equipment when encountering important live parts with tight construction period. Although it may not be as correct as the main production equipment, it can at least have the digital front-end function and printing quality similar to the main equipment

some suppliers have designed a variety of models for their product lines, which enables consumers to upgrade their devices to the latest and fastest models at any time

reasonable selection of digital printing machines suitable for enterprise development can bring more value-added services and create greater business value

3. Digital printing machines are different from those we know.

digital printing machines and ordinary printing machines are very different in speed, page size, color printing ability and other aspects. There are two types of digital printing machines: sheet fed and web. The maximum page size of single sheet printer is 1422 inches, while the maximum imaging width of web printer is 19 inches. Most digital printers can easily print 8.511 inch and 1117 inch images, and some can also print on 1218 inch pages

primary color printers often generate static electricity, so humidity control is very important. Some digital printing machines have fixed temperature and humidity control systems, which can make these machines work in a suitable environment. However, there are some models with exceptions. People need to provide special placement space for these machines in order to better control the environment around the machines

quality is no longer a problem. Although some customers will use a small magnifying glass to check the quantity of printed matter, most printing buyers stop to check and replace gaskets and fasteners. What they care about is the reaction rate, goods circulation and sales. Digital printing can bring them all the digital publishing they want, and even more benefits
