1 technology before hot transfer printing
As the beginning of the whole printing process, pre heat transfer has always been the field with the fastest technology upgrading and the highest degree of digitalization in the printing process. Green, digitalization and diversification have become the new development direction in the field of pre press under the new situation. Before heat transfer printing, it is in the center of data control, which is the highest level of digitalization and automation in all printing processes. Among them, digital workflow and color management system are the two most widely used digital technologies in the field of prepress.
2. Green CTP version becomes the mainstream
Green plate is one of the main trends of prepress raw material development in recent years. At present, prepress CTP technology has completely replaced the traditional CTF technology, and the use of film is less and less.
In addition to a small number of publishing houses still use the way of film output for the purpose of copyright protection, and some packaging and printing factories use film plate making due to the single product and less demand for output plate, most printing enterprises have introduced CTP plate making system.
In recent years, the government’s environmental protection requirements for printing enterprises have been continuously improved, and a series of policy measures have been introduced, such as the certification system for green printing enterprises, printing VOCs emission standards, etc.
