Characteristics of digital proofing technology

proofing is an intermediate link between prepress and printing. It is not only to check the work quality of plate making and proofreading personnel. It provides the basis and standard for the printing process, and is also an important means of quality management in the production process. As the post process of plate making. It is the reproduction process of image synthesis. It is the inspection of plate making effect 2 as the pre printing process. It is a standard for simulating printing for pilot production, seeking the best condition matching and providing ink color for formal printing

a qualified sample can be analog output with color separation film in the traditional way, and can also be output on the digital proofing equipment. in other words; Proofing can be divided into analog proofing and digital proofing. The fundamental difference between these two proofing methods is whether there is traditional film output. With the development of prepress digitization and networking technology, the digital process of prepress "metafilm" began to enter the prepress field as a powerful force, and the proofing technology is experiencing a new digital revolution

characteristics of digital proofing

the so-called digital proofing is a new proofing technology that directly outputs electronic originals after digital processing in electronic export. It uses a large format printer to directly output proofing in a digital way to replace the complicated process of film and printing in analog proofing

in the oncoming digital wave. People in the printing industry have high hopes for digital proofing. Industry experts believe that speed and stability have become the two major advantages of digital proofing. Mainly reflected in; First, good reducibility and stable color. Because the simulated proofing is mainly carried out by manual inking and pressure adjustment; Therefore, the effect cannot remain stable. If there is no digital proofing, the full digital process is adopted, so as to avoid the uncertainty of manpower in traditional proofing. Second; Fast proofing speed; Save time. Suitable for short edition printing. Print a high-quality folio sample, and digital proofing can be completed within 20 minutes. Simulation proofing takes 30-40 minutes. Third, there are few intermediate links, and the use of film is eliminated. On the one hand, it reduces the printing, film production and other links in the traditional proofing process. On the other hand, it also caters to the development trend of green printing, which is conducive to environmental protection. Fourth, because the whole process adopts digital operation, it is convenient to use and easy to operate. Fifth, remote digital proofing can be realized. Due to the application and development of network technology, digital files are transmitted to remote sites, and digital proofing is carried out by using proofing equipment, so as to provide users with digital proofs. This remote digital proofing breaks through the limitation of time and space, which is simple and practical

of course, digital proofing shows its style; Its shortcomings have also been revealed, mainly reflected in: first, although the development of digital proofing technology is becoming more and more mature. But the technology of digital proofing is not very mature; In particular, the current digital proofing equipment lacks a unified standard, and the shock spectrum curves obtained from 4 consecutive shocks are all within the tolerance band; It makes it difficult for operators and customers to adapt. Second, because some digital proofing uses frequency modulation points, the operation technology of this point is more complex in front of the diagram, which is also difficult for insiders who are used to amplitude modulation points. Third, the application scope of digital proofing is not widespread, and it can not meet the requirements of spot color proofing such as bronzing and silver ironing, which can be easily solved by traditional proofing. Fourth, the problem of consumables is relatively prominent. At present, special paper is required for digital proofing, which increases the printing cost and affects the credibility of the sample. Fifthly, the matching between the management software of digital proofing and the printing machine, imagesetter and other supporting equipment is still inconsistent. Therefore, in terms of the current development status of digital proofing; Due to its slow popularization and the cost of consumables, if the requirements for the cycle of live source are not tight, the general practitioners still choose the traditional simulation proofing

looking at the development of the printing industry, from the foreign situation, at present, advanced countries have begun to popularize digital proofing, and some developing countries have just begun to use it; Judging from the domestic situation, digital proofing technology has been widely used in gravure printing, but the development of offset printing is still in its infancy. At present, the promotion and popularization of digital proofing technology in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other places is at the leading level in China

today, with the coexistence of digital proofing and analog ordering, although the characteristics of digital proofing have undoubtedly played a driving role, there are still some areas that need to be improved in the development and application. Therefore, the comprehensive promotion also needs a process. Simply from the perspective of technological development, the digital proofing technology eliminates the interference of human and other external factors, greatly improves the reliability and stability of proofing output, and shortens the process flow as much as possible. In addition, the digital proofing can modify the samples at any time, which theoretically reduces the cost. With the popularization and popularization of digital proofing technology, it can completely solve many problems in analog proofing, such as long production cycle, unstable proofing quality and high cost, which has led to another digital revolution in the printing field to the grass-roots level and the people. It is foreseeable that digital proofing will replace analog proofing
