Prospects for the development of large format printers

the process of informatization has promoted the development of the market in the field of CAD and GIS, and the prosperity of the advertising market has also driven the demand for printing proofing and color inkjet painting. Nowadays, the traditional manual drawing is gradually eliminated and replaced by large-scale printout. According to IDC's "quarterly survey of large format printers in the Asia Pacific region", in the first quarter of 2004 alone, the shipment of large format printers used in CAD, GIS and advertising increased by 14.7% year-on-year. Due to the requirements of environmental protection, China will stop external printing next year and stop using lead materials, which virtually brings huge business opportunities to the large format inkjet printing market, Facing the huge market demand of hundreds of billions of dollars large format inkjet printing market, how will many printer manufacturers compete? How to develop large format printers

CAD mainly refers to the computer engineering drawing system, which includes architectural engineering design and mechanical engineering design. In 2005, with the rapid launch of the latest version of AutoCAD 2005 in Chinese, the domestic CAD market share will rise significantly. In the next three years, China's CAD market will not be calm, and large format inkjet printers will benefit from it. (this part of information is too old) nowadays, the promotion of CAD software and large format inkjet system has completely liberated the shackles of manual drawing in terms of efficiency. After the computer draws the drawing, it can be directly sprayed on sulfuric acid paper through large format inkjet equipment, which omits the tedious manual drawing and tracing, and greatly improves the work efficiency of designers. With the increasing complexity of the design of automated buildings, modern buildings and precision instruments and meters, the layers that need to be designed are becoming more and more complex. The new application requirements put forward a new topic for the print quality of large format printers

GIS remote sensing mapping is an effective means of mapping at present. At present, the huge development potential of the domestic GIS market provides a huge development space for the domestic GIS industry. Today, China's geographic information technology has been widely used in urban planning and real estate management, advanced digital cutting equipment, fully automatic manufacturing technology, industrial robots, land management, public security, agriculture, forestry, water conservancy, geology and minerals, commerce, transportation, civil aviation and other fields. One after another is how to implement the mapping map on paper. Drawing a map includes a whole set of processes and technical specifications such as "topic planning -- Market Research -- determining topic selection -- map design -- data processing -- map compilation -- spray proofing -- level proofreading -- film proofing -- map printing", and spray proofing is an important factor that determines the quality of map publishing houses

digital studio printing tends to be popular

with the improvement of people's material living standards, portrait and wedding photography have become the hottest businesses in studios. The high profit characteristics of studios have attracted more developers to join in, and also brought more market opportunities for large format inkjet painting. However, photography itself is an art, which has high requirements for composition and color level. Therefore, digital studio printing also puts forward higher requirements for the color and quality of large format spray painting. Excellent color performance and rich color level are essential conditions for achieving super photo output effect

products are in urgent need of innovation

due to historical reasons, large format printing has created a traditional concept that speed and format are the first and output is the second to further improve the development quality of China's new material industry in the CAD and GIS industries, making output quality, printing speed and format become the most important indicators that people pursue in this industry at the same time. However, with the continuous improvement of people's material living standards, the era of monochrome printing has gradually gone away from us and become history, and the large format inkjet market displayed in front of us is a new colorful world. Therefore, in the printing application fields of GIS, CAD, printing, image and GA industries, people have higher and higher requirements for the color of large format printing. For printer manufacturers, the innovation of ink color system is an important link to further improve the application level of CAD and GIS industries

at present, from the perspective of the printing technology used by large format printers, the core printing technology is mainly micro piezoelectric and thermal inkjet (hot bubble). In terms of color, products using 4-color ink technology have basically been washed out, while large format inkjet printers using 6-color and 7-color ink have become the mainstream at present. However, for the current growing demand for color printing, 6-color and 7-color inks are obviously inadequate for applications, and the market is eager for new inks with a higher number of primary colors. The launch of the world's first Epson style Pro 4800 with a new "eight color" color system just fills this gap

"century rainbow" vs dye ink

friends familiar with inkjet printers should know that the inks used in inkjet printers at present are mainly divided into pigment ink and dye ink. In terms of use, pigment ink and dye ink have their own advantages and disadvantages. Generally speaking, because dye ink (dye) is not conducive to the preservation of print works, large format printer manufacturers are competing to develop print inks that can keep print works for a long time, so pigment ink (UV) was born. However, although the early pigment ink is resistant to preservation, it is disappointing in terms of printing color effect. In this way, users will consider whether the printing results are used indoors or outdoors when choosing spray printing. For banner hanging boards used indoors, dye inks with better colors will be used, while for hanging boards used outdoors, durable pigment inks will be used. For the same printer, the type of heat resistance of polylactic acid that improves the printing ink cannot be replaced, so if the business undertaking inkjet printing has only one type of printer, it will lose many opportunities to undertake business. If you want to buy more large format printers, it will virtually increase the cost of purchasing equipment

2005 is a year when Epson's new generation of "century rainbow series inks" carried out the ink revolution to the end. Now Epson's latest "century rainbow" K3 pigment ink completely solves this problem. Epson's "century rainbow" pigment ink is far better than other general pigment inks, and even surpasses the embodiment of dye ink in color in terms of color gamut and color scale. Compared with previous pigment inks, the color density of magenta, cyan and yellow in Epson's "century rainbow" pigment ink has been doubled, while the particle density of rough black ink has been tripled, and the extremely delicate ink particles reproduce vivid colors. Therefore, the color gamut of Epson "century rainbow" pigment ink is far more than that of ordinary lithography and silver salt photos, which can meet the needs of all-round large format printing output. In addition, because Epson's "century rainbow" ink has the advantage of non-proliferation in printing, the area printed on the paper using the 4 microliters of "century rainbow" ink is equivalent to the actual area generated by the 2 microliters of ordinary dye ink. Therefore, we can think that the 4 microliters of Epson's "century rainbow" ink is equivalent to the 2 microliters of ordinary dye ink

performance upgrading leads the new development trend of the printing industry

in the field of CAD and GIS, only the printing accuracy of 2880dpi*1440dpi and the paper feeding accuracy of 0.1mm/m can accurately reproduce high-definition drawings. Unlike ordinary inkjet printers, large format printers are productive operations. Unlike ordinary inkjet printers, the core value of large format inkjet printers is to bring more abundant operating profits to the customers they serve. Therefore, the inkjet quality and efficiency of large format printers have become the most concerned problems of users. Users who have used Epson style Pro 4000 large format printer may still have a new memory. Its most perfect high-precision and high-speed printing has left a deep memory for all users. The newly launched Epson style Pro 4800, the world's first "eight color" large format printer, with its rich color levels, high-precision, clear line expression, meets a variety of high-definition, high fidelity color and line performance requirements, and has become the first choice to meet the high requirements of the cad/gis industry. The performance will be more perfect

in the field of printing proofing, the early digital proofing solutions have not been recognized by domestic users due to the output equipment. Many problems raised by customers, but since Epson launched Epson style Pro 9600/7600 printer, due to the excellent performance of Epson large format printer in color gamut performance, output accuracy, printing speed, printing cost and other aspects, many puzzles were solved. Digital proofing was gradually recognized by the printing industry, and more and more printing plants and output centers began to use digital proofing. The domestic digital proofing market shows a good momentum of development. This year, Epson launched the revolutionary Epson style Pro 4800, which takes on the important task of many digital proofing industries with richer and accurate color restoration and accurate printing effects! And promote the further development of digital proofing

eight color ink creates an accurate color world

the color base color of inkjet printer is an important factor that determines the quality of inkjet printing. Nowadays, products using 4-color ink technology have been washed out, otherwise it will cause studio gas leakage, and products using 6-color and 7-color ink occupy the market and become the mainstream. However, the newly launched Epson style Pro 4800 uses the independent eight color high-capacity ink cartridge and "century rainbow" K3 pigment ink newly developed by Epson. Eight color printing technology brings more accurate colors to Epson style Pro 4800. The base colors of 7-color inks of large format printers are yellow, magenta, cyan, black, light magenta, light cyan, and light black respectively, while 8-color printing adds light black on this basis. We know that the addition of light magenta and light cyan to the 6-color printer makes the printed works less grainy than the 4-color printer, which is caused by the fact that the 4-color printer needs more color ink to print transition colors; In the seven color printing, the addition of light black makes the printing transition to light color, and the use of color ink is greatly reduced. Therefore, the picture particles we see are significantly reduced. After adding light black to Epson style Pro 4800 large format printing, by adding this color, the graininess of the printed picture almost disappears, further enriching the hierarchical expressiveness in black-and-white images, significantly improving the color hierarchy and details in dark areas, showing excellent gray balance effect, and making black-and-white photos more realistic; Secondly, the gloss of the printing surface in the light tone area is stronger, and the color level in the dark tone area is strengthened, which truly restores the unique charm of black-and-white photography. The printing effect of light black (LLK) ink can not be achieved by using a single black ink. In addition, the use of the new magenta (m) will make the image more shiny, fuller in color, and greatly reduce the phenomenon of "same color and different spectrum"; The new color system adopts a new generation of resin layer, which has stronger scratch resistance, and the final output will have higher water resistance and strong durability. These colors
