  2. Digital Printing History • The Digital Printing Revolution... How many people realize how computers are revolutionizing the printing industry? This revolution is called Digital Printing. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  3. Digital Printing History Analogue Printing • Before we delve into what digital printing is lets take a moment to look at Analog printing technology to better help us understand the differences. • Traditional printing is an analog technology. Analog is defined as a continuously varying event such as sound or pressure, while a digital signal is either on or off, thus making it a more predictable. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  4. How Digital Printing Works Digital Printing • takes a different approach assembling each image from a complex set numbers and mathematical formulas. • These images are captured from a matrix of dots, generally called pixels, this process is called digitizing. • The digitized image is then used to digitally controlled deposition of ink, toner or exposure to electromagnetic energy, such as light, to reproduce images. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  5. How Digital Printing Works • One of the most important advantages that Digital printing offers is a quicker response time due to its minimal press setup and it’s built in multicolor registration system. • This eliminates many of the upfront, time consuming processes that can cause analog printing methods to have a slower turn-around time. • Another advantage of Digital printing is the ability of offer variable printing; this means that each printed piece can have different information on it providing personalization and customization unmatched by analog processes. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  6. The Advantages of Digital Printing • Digital printing technologies give the designer more options of substrates to print on due to its non-contact printing. • This eliminates the distortion of images that occurs in analog process, like screen printing. It also requires less harsh methods of holding the substrate in the press, thereby giving more options of substrates. • This means that substrates such as fabrics, very thin paper, and even ceramics can be safely printed on offering the customer more choices in designing. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  7. The Advantages of Digital Printing • The market is driving the desire for digital printing and therefore pushing it’s development and adoption. • Print buyers want to eliminate the risks and expenses of maintaining inventory. • Mass and Batch printing runs are giving way to the digital printer’s ability to have shorter print runs, mass customization, and less turn-around time. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  8. The Advantages of Digital Printing • Digital printing best serves the demand for: variable data printing, personalization, customization, less spoilage, faster proof cycle, smaller archival storage, quick response, just-in-time delivery, and short to medium print runs. While printers are still employing analog print methods they have the ability, with digital printing, to offer their customers more options and provide better service. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  17. UV Printing • UV printing is different from conventional printing in many ways. It is still ink on paper but the ink dries through a completely different process • Instead of having solvents in the ink that evaporate into the air and absorb into the paper, UV inks dry through a photomechanical process. When the inks are exposed to ultraviolet lights they turn from a liquid, or paste, to a solid. • There is significantly less evaporation of solvents and much less absorption of the ink into the Media Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  18. UV Printing This is advantageous for many reasons. • One of the biggest advantages of UV printing is that there are fewer emissions of volatile organic compounds into the environment since there is no evaporation of the solvents like with conventional inks. • Another advantage of UV printing is that the inks can dry on plastic and other non-porous substrates. Because the inks dry through a photomechanical process it is not necessary for the ink solvent to absorb into the Media. Basically, if you can get the media through the press you can print on it on UV. • Printers have even been known to print on substrates as unusual as wooden doors, Simi-corrugated materials. Agfa Graphics: an introduction

  19. UV Printing • Since UV inks dry when exposed to UV light, the inks do not have the time to soak into the paper. • The ink dot is left sitting on top of the uncoated sheet, where it presents a cleaner less contaminated dot, ultimately giving more vibrant color. • The key to printing with UV inks successfully lies in exposing the UV ink to enough ultraviolet energy to cure the ink while not making the substrate too brittle and also achieving an acceptable level of adherence to the substrate. • This is extremely difficult because every different substrate has very different characteristics. • All-in-all, UV printing is an excellent way to produce printed material on unusual substrates and on uncoated Medias.
