Today in the new era, digital printing has gradually replaced traditional printing as the primary choice for major companies and individual printing needs. However, everyone’s consultation found that many people still have a lot of misunderstandings about digital printing. These questions will give you a brief explanation.
Misunderstanding 1: Digital printing machine is a simple process of digitization
Since the digital printing process is directly printed from the computer or printed on paper, it is required that the digital printing machine should have the automatic functions of the whole process such as imposition, correction, and binding. Therefore, the software function of the system is very important.
Misunderstanding 2: High printing cost
Cost usually consists of three elements: depreciation, materials, and labor. However, the high degree of automation of the digital system will reduce the labor cost to a certain extent; the depreciation of the equipment is determined by the investment when purchasing the equipment; the material cost, taking the toner-type medium as an example, the digital machine is mostly separated from the drum. , And the life of most equipment drums is more than hundreds of thousands of sheets, the price of powder should be gradually reduced as the application expands; compared with traditional offset printing, digital printing does not require plate making, so plate-making costs will be saved. It is worth mentioning that with the increase of users and the maturity of technology, the overall price level of digital printing presses has fallen. This also allows the cost of digital printing to be controlled, prompting more customers to accept digital printing.
Misunderstanding 3: Printed products cannot be retained for a long time
First of all, you can do your own experiment to see the difference in the storage time of the digital printing presses. Put the printed products printed with traditional inks, electronic inks, and toners in the sun. After a few days, you will find that the printed products printed by digital printers have better color durability than traditional inks.
Secondly, many people think that the prints of digital printers are not stored for a long time like the prints of traditional laser printers and copiers. The actual situation is not the case. Take dry toner as an example. With the continuous improvement of the high resolution of digital printers, the toner used by digital printers is finer than those used by traditional copiers and laser printers. During the high-temperature melting process , Toner can dissolve in the gap of paper like ink drops.
Misunderstanding 4: The printing quality of digital printing presses cannot be guaranteed
Although the quality of digital printing is not completely on par with traditional printing due to the different mechanical structure and use of consumables, in general, with the continuous improvement of the imaging system, the improvement of imaging accuracy and output resolution, and the increase in media latitude Enhanced, the digital printing presses introduced by various manufacturers have been able to meet the needs of high-end printing, and are still developing in the direction of higher quality. In particular, there are more and more multi-color digital printing systems, which can be four-color or even six-color at the same time, and spot-color printing can also satisfy.
