In the current market, digital printing is becoming more and more popular. In addition to the “digital printing” as the keyword on the enterprise’s official website, product website, and other websites, some online businesses also take digital printing as their own keyword. In fact, there are reasons for these. Firstly, because digital printing has the advantages of bright colors, high saturation, 3D realistic printing effect, etc., more and more printing enterprises begin to transform from traditional printing to digital printing, so as to create higher products in terms of design and quality.
With the rapid development of digital printing, it constantly makes up for its own defects. In recent years, the digital printing equipment participating in the exhibition has greatly improved the processing speed and printing fineness of digital printing. The cost of printing ink is also decreasing year by year. The continuous price reduction of ink is expected to promote the further development of digital printing.
The speed of digital printing is accelerated, and the return on investment is increased
In the early years of digital printing, the most obvious drawback was that the printing speed was too slow. However, now this door frame has been broken, and the printing speed has been significantly improved.
The new machines introduced by some companies can print two T-shirts on cotton, polyester, nylon, and other T-shirt fabrics at the same time. The printing speed can reach 22 pieces /h. They can also print samples on-site. Customers do not need to wait for a long time, and the operation is simple and easy to use.
At the same time, in addition to the improvement of the printing speed of digital printing, we must say that ink. The reduction of ink cost year by year accelerates the return to downstream printing customers. In recent years, the development and research of inks in China is no less than that in foreign countries. In order to reduce the applicable cost of inks, Honghua has also developed and issued internationally certified digital printing series inks, which are suitable for polyester direct printing active and high-energy dispersive dyeing inks, including heat dissipation sublimation, acid and pigment inks. They have the advantages of complete varieties and stable quality. The price of ink has also dropped from more than 800 yuan/kg in the early years to about 100 yuan/kg now. At the same time, the printing factory no longer needs to buy screens and rollers, but only needs to change the digital files, so that the printing factory can use high-quality and low-cost ink, while reducing the cost of cleaning and the cost of preparing fabrics, maintenance, and downtime, thus saving more time.
Breaking the monopoly of sprinkler technology and promoting the rapid development of the digital printing industry
In addition to the need to accelerate the speed of digital printing, the nozzle, as the core accessory of the digital printing machine, is also an important component that affects the effect of digital printing. As we all know, digital printing is CMYK mixed color printing. All colors are mixed with four-color ink. If there are some subtle changes between nozzles, it may affect the accuracy of a series of color mixing.
Because Chinese enterprises have not mastered the core technology of sprinklers, and the assembly threshold of digital printing machines is low, the digital printing industry is highly dispersed. Many unknown digital printing machines are pouring into the printing market, thus intensifying the competition in the digital printing industry. The shortage of sprinkler technology and the high purchase price of sprinklers make the digital printing equipment manufacturers and digital printing enterprises lose the right to negotiate prices. The production and manufacturing of digital printing nozzles involve advanced technologies in many fields, such as piezoelectric ceramic materials, precision casting, microelectronics, etc., and manufacturing is very difficult.
