Technology and Its Effect on the Printing Process 31/01/2013
The printing industry in Brisbane has changed and transformed with the technology improvements and new equipment over the last 50 years.
corflute sheet printing was originally a purely mechanical or analogue process with no digital technology or controls. All adjustment to speed, paper pick ups, colour channels etc were completed manually by the press operator, using dials, knobs and wheels.
Over the last 50 years the offset printing press has slowly become more and more digitally controlled, but the core offset printing process has remained remarkably unchanged. Digital technology has allowed for much more precise adjustments and control, but the offset printing process using analogue plates, blankets, rollers etc have proven to print faster and at a higher resolution that a digital printer. Much the same as Vinyl records produce higher sound quality than CDs and Film cameras produce sharper images than digital camera.
In Brisbane, Offset printing is still the most cost effective and practical method for printing medium - large volumes. This style of printing is most often used in Brisbane for medium-long runs of business cards, flyers, drop cards, brochures, posters
Although the Offset press still operates in a fundamentally similar manner, there have been huge leaps in technology in Brisbanes digital printing sector. A number of different sub categories have emerged, such as Wide Format Printing, Digital Press Printing, Flat Bed Printing, Solvent Ink Printing etc
The digital press is essentially a very high quality photocopier, which prints using toner instead of ink like and offset printing press. This type of equipment is most commonly used to print very short runs of Business cards Brisbane CBD, Flyers, Brochures, Annual Reports, Booklets, Catalogues, Drop Cards, Xmas Cards etc. Most digital press can run up to a maximum off 300gsm sheet weight.
Wide Format Digital Printers are used to print very short runs of posters, as well as most Banners, canvas, vinyl, vinyl stickers etc. They can be printed using solvent or UV inks which will extend the product life outdoors in sunlight.
Flat bed printing has come a long way in recent years, and is starting to replace roll fed wide format printers as the equipment of choice for printing signage, corflute panels, PVC board, doors, table tops etc. The 2nd generation flat bed printers in Brisbane print at 720dpi images and is more cost effective than printing on vinyl and adhering the vinyl to a substrate or medium.
