The development of software control promotes the continuous progress of printing technology

printing machine is the core of a printing factory, which usually determines the success of printers. Keeping the printing press running and keeping the printed matter produced by it at the best effect can achieve any printing enterprise. Many printers can provide customers with services related to the models they use. It is a difficult challenge for printers, control systems and printer operators to take into account high speed and high quality. Printing machine manufacturers are competing to provide customers with simple operation methods and flexible technologies by providing interfaces connected to the printing machine control system

for a long time, the printing industry seems to have been moving forward twists and turns without being affected by the transformation of other industries. Other industries, such as electronics and automobile manufacturing, must constantly improve quality and delivery accuracy. Buyers of printed matter seem to be more tolerant of printers. In recent years, people's requirements for printers have increased steadily. Although this may not be very popular, it can make the printing level of printers reach a higher level

the development of printing press

everything starts with the printing press. A few years ago, printers did not pay special attention to maintaining stable temperature and air humidity, but now we know that these are the key factors to obtain high-quality and reproducible prints. Fortunately, the manufacturer of the printing machine can keep the temperature of the printing machine and its surroundings constant through an air control and built-in cooling cylinder. By adding weight and heavy metals to the high-precision printing machine and its components, the vibration of the printing machine can be minimized

although the printing press has made progress, it still needs to be improved. In terms of hardware, the double-sided printing function needs to be improved. The printer hopes to complete the double-sided printing of single sheet of paper in the process of one impression, but on the printing machine, the paper seems to be very active and difficult to control. Traditional sheet fed printing machines now print on one side of the paper, and then print on the other side when they are dry. While printing on both sides at one time, a small private enterprise finds life on the ruins of the plant. Printing is an ideal choice, which will not bring loss of quality or speed, and will not cause ink smearing in the printing process. Double sided printing machine is a proven technology, and its sales have also achieved rapid growth in recent years

software control promotes the continuous progress of printing

with the maturity and peak of printing machine design and structure, there is no longer a difference between hardware, and the biggest difference is software. All modern printing machines are controlled by computers. Their printing machine control system is closely connected with the prepress system and has a certain relationship with the business system, so that they can operate live parts more effectively, including work planning, work evaluation, cost calculation and invoicing. The most important thing is that the control system of the printing machine should formulate a maintenance plan to avoid the downtime of the printing machine in the production process. In short, this requires the software to be easy to use and considerate. For many printers, evaluating software is much more difficult than evaluating a beautifully designed metal product, which they can see and touch, and people can even judge its characteristics by listening

design trend

there are three obvious trends in the development of printing machine control system. The first is to have the same color management ability as the prepress department. Many printing machine control systems are pursuing this point, for example: ICC feature description files are generated on the basis of actual printing. In this way, it is no longer necessary to carry out special printing tests to correct ICC characteristic description files, otherwise normal production will be disturbed. This is a new technology, but it does not mean that buyers of printed matter need to provide ICC characteristic documents for each kind of paper and each printing machine. Many printers will choose some ICC characteristic description documents of papers commonly used in daily production, and recommend customers to use one of them for document preparation, such as color image conversion. The use of special ICC characteristic description documents can give printers the opportunity to convert CMYK to CMYK, adjust the possible differences between printers, and calibrate the input documents when necessary

the second development trend is to switch from using only densitometer for quality control to using spectrophotometer for quality control. Mass spectrophotometer can not only be used as a densitometer, but also read spectral values, which is the only way to accurately measure spot color

the third development trend of printer control system - which may also be the most attractive point for printer operators - is the support for faster preparation. For a specific paper and work, its best printer setting value will be saved for reuse of similar work. In this way, the preset parameter values include not only the settings of the ink bucket, but also the air volume parameters of the blower, the powder spraying data and the required printing pressure - and so on. All these data are based on the lightweight structure of thermoplastic composites, which will be conducive to the reduction of prepress preparation time and startup waste


we are looking for the second generation printing and control system. In the first generation system, we use CIP3 data to preset the printing machine. This standard was first proposed in 1995, but it is a one-way street of information. Ten years later, the second generation printing machine control system can support two-way information exchange. This kind of dual data optimizes the configuration of mold machinery and 5 gold plastics. In addition, the exchange of industrial supply chain and value chain is the core of JDF (CIP4) standard, and it is also a key factor to ensure that traditional printing machine technology is respected and competitive in this rapidly changing world

buyers of printing materials and operators of printing machines are very optimistic about the high quality and speed that modern printing machine control systems and printing machines can provide. The new requirements of customers for printing substrates have increased the pressure of printers. We hope that the purchasers of printed matter can give sufficient remuneration to the printers, so that they can invest in the software and hardware of the printing factory and train their employees in these systems
