The development status of the world printing machinery industry

the world printing machinery has made great progress since the 1980s. Over the past 20 years, the development of printing machinery has experienced three stages. The first stage is from the early 1980s to the early 1990s. This stage is the heyday of the development of offset printing technology. There are a large number of offset printing machinery manufacturers all over the world. Famous ones include Heidelberg, Manroland, gaobao, Miller in Germany, Planeta in former East Germany, polygraph, Komori, Hamada, Akiyama, Mitsubishi Heavy Industry in Japan, Solna in Sweden, omsca in Italy, Nebiolo, Harris in the United States, etc. The maximum printing speed of the sheet fed offset press in this period was 10000 prints/hour. The pre adjustment preparation time of a four-color printing machine before printing is generally about 2 hours. The automatic control of printing machine mainly focuses on automatic paper binding, automatic paper receiving, automatic cleaning, automatic detection of ink color, automatic adjustment of ink volume and registration remote control. During this period, in addition to monochrome and two-color machines, almost every single sheet fed offset press manufacturer also had the manufacturing capacity of four-color machines. Most manufacturers were able to manufacture paper turnover mechanisms for double-sided printing. The second stage is the 2018 annual meeting of the wood plastic composite Professional Committee and the 20th anniversary celebration/award ceremony of China's wood plastic industry from the early 1990s to the afternoon of December 18 and the morning of December 19, respectively. In the 1990s, marked by the sheet fed offset press, the design and manufacturing level of printing machinery in the world has taken a big step forward. Heidelberg company, Roland company, gaobao company in Germany and Komori company in Japan have all launched their new generation of representative models. Compared with the first stage model, the speed of the new generation model is further improved, from 10000 prints/hour to 15000 prints/hour, and the pre press adjustment time is greatly shortened from about 2 hours in the first stage to about 15 minutes. The automation level and production efficiency of the machine have also been greatly improved. Since entering the 21st century, printing machinery has ushered in "This is the third development stage of all cutting. At present, some models of sheet fed offset printing machines can reach 17000-18000 prints/hour, but manufacturers do not strive to improve the maximum printing speed of the printing machine, but through the application of information technology, further shorten the pre press preparation time and the time to replace live parts, and pursue higher production efficiency. In the automation of printing machinery, networking, production integration and digitization work Processes, links with management information systems (MIS) and other technologies have become the focus of development under normal circumstances. The CP2000 automatic control system of Heidelberg company not only presets, regulates and diagnoses each working link of the whole machine from paper feeding, paper feeding and paper guiding, ink feeding, water conveyance, plate changing, registration, cleaning, drying, polishing and coating, powder spraying and paper receiving, but also has the functions of networking all production processes of printing enterprises and transmitting prepress image processing data (CIP3/PPF or CIP4/JDF data). The pecom system of Roland, DONet system of Komori and opera system of gaobao also have similar functions. In the new century, most offset printing machine manufacturers have developed corresponding Di digital printing machines. For example, Komori's lithrone s40d printing machine (B1 format), leyoubi's 3404di printing machine, gaobao's 74karat model, Heidelberg's sm74di printing machine (B2 format) and Heidelberg's fifth generation kuaibao model - qmdipro machine (B3 format), etc. In addition, in order to meet people's demand for high-end color printing, multi-color double-sided printing with 8 or even 10 color groups and additional online post-processing functions have become the development trend of all kinds of sheet fed offset printing machines (including small offset printing machines, di direct plate making machines and large offset printing machines), and the technology is becoming more and more mature. This type of printing machine has begun to occupy part of the market that originally belonged to web printing machines. According to the statistics of the European Federation of printing and paper processing machinery manufacturers' associations (eumaprint), due to the impact of the world economic downturn, the sales of printing machinery and equipment in Germany, France, the United States, Italy, Switzerland and other seven countries decreased by 13.08% in 2002 compared with 2001. From the analysis of economic prosperity index, among the 11 countries in Europe, America, China, Russia and Japan, only China and Russia are on the rise, while the rest are on the decline. Among them, the sales volume of Germany in 2002 was about 6.8 billion US dollars, a decrease of 12% over 2001; The sales volume of the United States is about 2 new rounds of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reform. Its core is to improve the production efficiency of the manufacturing industry and reduce labor by 270Million US dollars, down 16% from 2001; The sales volume of Britain in 2002 decreased by 24% compared with that in 2001, which was about US $1.064 billion; Italy fell by 8% to about $763million. In 2001, the top five countries in the annual output value of printing machinery and equipment were: Germany $7.73 billion, Japan $3.918 billion, the United States $2.702 billion, Britain $1.4 billion, Italy $829 million. In 2001, the top five countries in the export of printing machinery and equipment were Germany with us $6.325 billion, Japan with us $1.578 billion, the United States with us $1.246 billion, Italy with us $1.06 billion and Britain with us $940 million. In 2001, the top six imports of printing machinery and equipment were: US $2.2 billion, China $1.3 billion, Germany $1.228 billion, Italy $922 million, Britain $920 million and Japan $798 million. In 2002, China's printing machinery market blossomed alone, and the sales of printing machinery and equipment increased by 13.8%, becoming a must for the world's printing and equipment manufacturers. In addition, according to the latest statistics of the printing branch of the German machinery and Equipment Manufacturers Association (VDMA), the output value of the German printing machinery industry was about 7billion euros in 2003, a decrease of 13% over 2002. Among them, printing machinery accounts for 4.8 billion euros, paper processing machinery accounts for 1.1 billion euros, and the rest are paper production machinery. At present, German printing technology still occupies a leading position in the world, with a global market share of more than 30% and a product export rate of 80%, mainly exported to the United States, China and EU Member States. In 2003, Germany exported 370million euros of printing machinery to China, accounting for 9.8% of the total exports of German printing machinery. China has become the second largest single export market of German printing machinery. The United States is still the largest importer of German printing machinery, accounting for 1/6 of the total exports of German printing machinery. Source: Sea intelligence service platform
