The new development of printing industry

just in time is popular all over the world

Economic integration and the development of network economy have made the current production get rid of the traditional mode. Like the production of automobiles and other industrial products, it is no longer what enterprises produce and what customers buy, but what customers order and what enterprises produce. Whether it is book printing or packaging printing, you can order first or even charge first for reproduction. The batch production may not be tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, but thousands, hundreds, dozens, or even one, one. That is the so-called "zero inventory" production

Xerox demonstrated a short edition book production system, which can produce a Book comparable to traditional books for customers; "Freedom without limit" is a concept introduced by Komori company. The DONet system proposed by Komori in 19981 under the influence of fixtures is an open system and digital product based on the network and compatible with other manufacturers' technologies and products. The printing room develops in the direction of short edition and diversification

driven by small batch and multiple varieties in the printing market, direct plate making technology (CTP) has developed rapidly. According to the ranking statistics of the American Printing Technology Foundation (GATF) on major international printing and publishing technologies, the technology of direct plate making by computer has ranked first for three consecutive years. At present, nearly 5000 direct plate making systems have been installed all over the world. In 1996, 55% of the top 100 large printing enterprises in the United States have adopted the direct plate making system

in machine direct imaging (DI) technology has achieved rapid development because it can output graphic information from the computer to the printing plate of the printing machine and directly complete printing. The gto-di printing press of Heidelberg company has been used 1400 sets in the world. The DICOweb printing machine launched by MAN Roland company in the exhibition no longer uses disposable plates. It is printed through a washable metal sleeve and is positioned for short version live printing. Komori Co., Ltd. and creo-scitex Co., Ltd. launched project D on-line direct imaging printer, which uses non flushing thermal plate imaging, and is the largest direct imaging printer in the market at present

in this exhibition, there were 78 flexographic machine exhibitors, more than 38 gravure machine exhibitors, reflecting the rapid development of flexographic printing in recent years, which is the fastest-growing one of a variety of printing methods. The flexo printing machine of folding carton, a typical product in the packaging industry, is a major feature of this exhibition. The quality and production efficiency of flexo printing have been greatly improved, which has changed the dominant situation of offset printing in folding carton printing

although CTP (direct plate making technology) using traditional plates appeared in this exhibition, it also proved that thermal CTP plates have matured and occupied a dominant market position. With the further reduction of the cost of thermal plate, it will replace the ordinary PS plate and become the mainstream of plate production

digital printing technology has advanced by leaps and bounds

since indigo launched the world's first color digital printing machine in 1993, digital printing has been greatly improved in terms of printing quality, printing format, low noise in the process of printing experiments, stable operation speed and so on. Digital printing has occupied a large part of the original offset printing market. At present, nearly 4000 digital printing machines have been installed all over the world

at this exhibition, some super offset printing machine manufacturers entered the digital printing machine market one after another, which attracted people's attention. The nexpress2100 digital printing machine launched by the joint venture between Heidelberg and Kodak has become the focus of attention. This machine not only has the quality and speed of offset printing machine, but also has the flexibility and convenience of printer. It will be introduced to the market in 2001, and the price will be less than 350000 US dollars

network and printing are closely combined

in today's world, enterprises cannot participate in world-wide competition if they cannot order goods on the Internet, transmit, produce and settle accounts through the network

digital workflow is the highlight of this exhibition. It realizes all digital processing of the whole process of prepress, printing and post printing of the printing plant, and connects the printing plant with users, publishers and equipment and material suppliers through interconnection, so as to realize remote ordering, proofing and settlement. Fuji company launched a remarkable station, which provides printing enterprises with B to B to B (between businesses) tools for e-commerce

cross media publishing technology competes with traditional printing. Using cross media publishing technology, words, a zigzag experimental image, audio and video signals can be formed into different media products, such as printed matter, videotape, CD-ROM (compact disc), web publications, etc. According to the statistics of Heidelberg company: in 1995, the market share of print media was 70%, and that of electronic media was only 30%; By 2010, print media will account for 48% of the market share, and electronic media will account for 52%
