  • 8. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Sounds like a joke … • But it’s not • There are lots of companies who have pretty much done that • A press sells on: • Print formats (size, roll vs sheet etc) • Supported media • Print/color quality • … and how well it fits into the rest of the printing and finishing/converting workflow • Which includes software connectivity
  • 9. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Message #1 • Every bit of your press system is vital • No ink? • No press • No paper transport? • No press • No software for your Digital Front End? • No press • No press? • No revenue!
  • 10. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Quality matters! Brand managers and buyers are driving change by pushing the boundaries. They need high-quality at high-speed Inkjet press manufacturers are frustrated with output quality. They are reaching the limits of what can be achieved with mechanical improvements The faster the press runs, the harder it is to control drop placement precisely Coated and impermeable media suffer more from ink/surface artifacts
  • 11. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Quality matters! Brand managers and buyers are driving change by pushing the boundaries. They need high-quality at high-speed Inkjet press manufacturers are frustrated with output quality. They are reaching the limits of what can be achieved with mechanical improvements The vendors know they need to significantly improve output quality and operate at high speeds to keep pages fed to the press It’s often not financially viable to fix these press problems in hardware But they can frequently be compensated for in software
  • 12. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Fixing hardware with software • Sometimes the right software can solve a problem elsewhere • In hardware, inks, etc • It may be fixable at source • But sometimes that’s not viable financially or in time-to-market • Compensating for many things, such as • Over-inking • Mottling & streaking • Head-to-head (or nozzle to nozzle) variation
  • 13. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Limiting ink is vital in inkjet • Using too much ink can • Make drying/curing harder/slower/more expensive • Require the press to run more slowly • Increase ink mixing on the substrate surface • Reducing the readability of barcodes and small text • Lead to cockling or paper stretch • Reduce media tensile strength in web presses • But printing companies want to make their own ICC color profiles for new media • So ink limiting and media profiling must be kept separate
  • 14. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 High-speed inkjet drop placement • Ink drops should ideally form a regular grid on the media They usually don’t You can see straight lines along the media (up and down), but uneven lines across the media
  • 15. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Causes common quality issues Irregular drop positioning leads to drops ‘randomly’ coalescing on the media: These microscopic effects cause visible artefacts, often described as mottling or streaking: Synthetic image with exaggerated artefacts in order to be visible on a projector, or reproduced on another print process
  • 16. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Single pass inkjet non-uniformity • Head to head variation in manufacture and head wear can lead to banding along the print • This can be compensated for in software in the DFE
  • 17. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Message #2 • Think about hardware and software in parallel • Each one affects the other, and software may be able to resolve a ‘hardware’ problem faster and at lower cost than adjusting the hardware itself
  • 18. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 In our experience … • We’ve worked with many digital press vendors • Most under-estimate the effort/time needed for their first inkjet press • Both the physical press and the software • We recommend you address both in parallel • For minimum time to market • To enable best cooperation between the two • And remember, if it’s going to take you a few years to get to market … Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.
  • 19. Copyright © Global Graphics Software Limited 2016 Message #3 • The market is constantly evolving • Design for the future; It may be years until you hit ROI • You will need to respond to changing customer demands • Your DFE/software must be part of that • Your customers may tell you they only want to print runs of 5000 copies right now • They’ll probably want variable data and every-page-different when your press ships • What does that mean for your data rates?
