What is DIGITAL PRINTING?

Digital Printing refers to the methods of printing from a digital based image directly to a variety of media (e.g. paper). It usually refers to professional printing where small run jobs from desktop publishing and other digital sources are printed using large format and / or high volume laser or inkjet printers.

Benefits
of Digital Printing

  • It allows on demand printing, short turn around (quicker and less expensive) and variable data printing.
  • Despite having a higher cost per printed page than more traditional offset printing methods, it saves costs by avoiding the need of printing plates, thus becoming especially competitive in small run jobs.
  • The increased technological capabilities of digital presses also means savings in labour and cost-efficient larger print runs.

Features overview

BEST PERFORMANCE

  • Ideal thickness / stiffness ratio To reduce printing waste such as paper jamming, misfeeding and multifeeding.
  • Controlled humidity values To provide good post-printing flatness.
  • Optimized stiffness Suited for both frontal and lateral machine feeding and to minimize post-printing curl.
  • Minimal dust levels To avoid wear on machine parts and subsequent runnability issues.
  • Good cutting quality For stable, trouble-free larger print runs.
  • Engineered smoothness To minimize runnability issues, as well as providing a high quality tactile sensation.

SUPERIOR PRINTING QUALITY

  • Even sheet formation and porosity To guarantee uniform ink/toner application onto the paper surface.
  • High whiteness To increase printing contrast.
  • Excellent opacity To avoid show-through and print-through in duplex printing applications.
  • Specially treated surface To ensure adequate ink-paper interaction and better toner adhesion.
