The third analysis of the key technologies for the survival of printing plants: other key technologies

in today's era of fierce competition and meager profits, how can printing plants survive and succeed? In September this year, the 12th executive outlook conference was held at the same time of graphexpo2007, the largest exhibition in the Western Hemisphere. The theme of the conference is the Quartet of Printing Factory Success: economy, market, technology and talent. At this conference on discovering poor lubrication conditions, the mustsee EMS (must see technical express mail) technology and product selection committee recently released the list of six survival technologies of the printing factory. These technologies will have a far-reaching impact on the business of the printing factory and play a decisive role in their future success

six key technologies for the survival of printing plants:

1 Management information system (MIS); 2. Digital production printing; 3. Traditional workflow and digital application; 4. Information technology (it); 5. Web to print; 6. Color management

key technologies for secondary survival:

7 Automatic control of lithographic press; 8. Computer direct plate making technology (with ink preset); 9. Pre inspection software and technology; 10. Application of unique functions

other technologies that have a significant impact on the success of printing plants:

11 Integrated production; ID (radio frequency smart tag); 13. Post press binding and processing; 14. Integrated services

III. other technologies that have a significant impact on the success of printing plants

11 The development direction of integrated production printing enterprises

cim is computer integrated manufacturing. The biggest feature of this new technology is that in any printing environment, the printer only needs to input the data of all live parts once, and can realize the real barrier free file conversion and communication between different devices and platforms. At the same time, using this technology can effectively carry out color management and other quality control at any stage. In CIM Environment, design, prepress, printing and Postpress work will be integrated into a single all digital workflow -- more importantly, this workflow will be further combined with other aspects of a set operation. From sequential supply to scheduling, from the delivery of finished products to the estimation and listing of the whole production process, each step will be generated according to a shared data center

because CIM embodies the excellent achievements of modern printing, its successful development and application can not only reduce the cost of enterprises, but also greatly improve the efficiency. Therefore, this technology has attracted the attention of the printing industry. In order to improve the economic bottom line of enterprises, many printing plant operators are actively adopting CIM

id- huge business opportunities

rfid (radio frequency smart tag) is also considered to be a promising technology. The huge market demand for RFID and the rapid growth of demand have brought huge business opportunities to enterprises, and the investment in radio frequency identification system (RFID) will bring high returns

rfid market has achieved significant growth in the past two years. Over the past 60 years, RFID tags have sold a total of 3.752 billion units, 1.02 billion units in 2006, accounting for 27% and 19% in 2005. It is predicted that the global RFID tag shipments will reach 1.71 billion units in 2007, and the total size of the RFID market (including hardware, systems, and integration) will reach US $4.96 billion, and will reach US $27.9 billion in 2017. At present, RFID card is the largest market, with a non card RFID market size of 1.97 billion US dollars in 2007

rfid technology is considered by experts as one of the ten most promising technologies in the 11th century because of its excellent recognition performance. At the same time, it can try to display experimental curves or view the measured values of sensors in real time. It can be applied to industrial production, company management, military activities, daily life and other aspects of society

with the increasing development of RFID technology and the increasing attention and support of governments for RFID technology, we believe that the time of RFID application blowout is not far away

13. Post press binding and processing - profit growth point

in order to be invincible in today's increasingly fierce competition, more and more printing enterprises are looking for a way to provide more services and meet more needs of customers. Many enterprises focus on customer service, printing quality and production costs, but they do not realize that improving the surface finishing effect of printed matter is the best way to increase added value

post press processing is a very important link in the printing and processing of printed matter. Especially today, post press is not only a post press process, but also an important art processing process and a key link to greatly increase the value of the printing value chain. In the future, the development trend of the printing industry is that the prepress is becoming simpler and simpler, and the post press is becoming more and more complex, the company said

post press processing is a field that is most affected by digital technology. With the continuous rise of printing in which digital plastics lose most of their energy absorption characteristics, one of the most urgent needs of digital printing enterprises is to obtain a fast, one-step on-demand post printing processing method, but at the same time, there can be no difference in accuracy and quality. Providing fast post press processing services to meet customers' requirements for delivery time has become the key to the success of digital printers. It was pointed out that the profits earned by post press processing of some Express Printing stores accounted for about 70% of the total profits of Express Printing stores. There is no doubt that post press processing has become the profit growth point of printing enterprises

14. Integrated Services - new value-added point

printers will be able to form favorable competitiveness by providing customers with complete products/services. To provide extended services and value-added services for customers, printing enterprises are doing different services and businesses. They do not simply rely on printing to make money, but printing is only a part of serving customers. We should see that printing is a way and a link of information transmission. In addition to printing, we also need to provide extended services and value-added services to customers to attract and retain customers to maximize their benefits. The content of this product/service will include printing and related businesses extending upstream and downstream, including data processing, printing, packaging and mailing services

the proportion of printing industry profits from non printing service items will gradually increase, and integrated services will be the value-added point of the new profits of the printing industry
