Worthy of attention to the emerging screen printing technology and ink technology
The current packaging and printing market momentum is very strong. Screen printing process is only reflected in the packaging surface, which is because the current array of goods sold on the market, supermarkets and shopping malls as if the shelves has evolved into a fierce competition in the brand "battlefield", advanced screen printing technology enables commodity packaging Become more lifelike, more quickly attract the attention of consumers.
In the printing industry, the ability to express details is one of the most important criteria for judging the quality of printed matter, which makes it possible for the potential application of nanotechnology. Nano printer integrated digital printing flexibility as well as the traditional high-efficiency offset printing and economic characteristics, not only to achieve higher productivity, but also with the printing business existing work environment seamlessly.
Graphene conductive ink
In the smart packaging and printed electronics markets, silver paste and copper paste conductive inks have dominated, but in 2011 graphene conductive inks started to exert influence and bring new hope to the market. Graphene conductive ink has excellent conductivity, but also has other advantages silver paste conductive ink, such as lower prices, more flexible - the material can be wrinkled or bent without affecting the performance. Because of its outstanding advantages, graphene conductive ink will become a new force in the conductive ink market.
Waterless offset printing
Waterless offset printing is an offset printing process that does not use water or a wetting system. Traditionally, the printing and packaging industry has been wary of dry printing. But over the past two years, great progress has been made in the waterless offset printing process through a combination of press manufacturers, paper and ink manufacturers. Waterless offset printing with silicone rubber coated plate, a special ink and temperature control of the printing press. Waterless offset printing makes it simpler and more efficient to print more substrates, including paper and a variety of non-absorbent substrates.
With the continuous rising of green environmental protection, sustainable development has drawn much attention in the packaging industry and its importance has become increasingly prominent. And the printing and printing ink market in the packaging industry, also place greater emphasis on environmental protection and sustainable development. Therefore, a new generation of environmentally friendly inks and printing processes continue to emerge.
Thermal inkjet code
Traditionally, packers have had a choice of three printing processes for laser marking on their production lines in their own facilities: laser marking, continuous ink jetting and thermal transfer coding. Now, they have another choice, that is, thermal inkjet code. In fact, thermal inkjet technology has been successfully used in the office for many years, but until recently it entered the field of industrial applications. Moreover, thermal inkjet technology continues to improve in terms of ink, drying speed, and substrate suitability, and its appeal to packagers is also growing.
