of various printing technologies
technology has its advantages
and drawbacks. Some companies offer
a choice between powder and polymer
as the material from which the object
emerges. Generally, the main considerations
used to determine the best are speed,
cost of the printed prototype, cost
of the printer, choice of materials,
color capabilities, etc. Some of
the printing technologies
available in the market
are as follows:
prototyping printing technology
was not a speedy process and costs
of the skilled labor were also not
cheap. Hence a faster and cheaper
prototyping technology called rapid
prototyping technology was developed.
3D printing is
a category of rapid prototyping
technology. In this technology,
a three dimensional object is created
by layering and connecting successive
cross sections of material. 3D printers
are generally faster, more affordable
and easier to use than other technologies.
3D printing technology
uses inkjet printing system. This
technology is the only one that
allows for the printing of full
color prototypes. It is also the
fastest printing method. 3D printing
is optimized for speed, low cost,
and ease-of-use. These features
make it suitable for visualizing
during the conceptual stages of
engineering design when dimensional
accuracy and mechanical strength
of prototypes are less important.
3D printing technology requires
no toxic chemicals like those used
in stereolithography printing technology.
It requires minimal post printing
Printing technology has
facilitated manufactures to make
a digital sampling and have advantages
of change in designs before engraving.
By adopting digital printing techniques
you can re-adjust conventional printing
design and can able to give new
looks in design.
enables you to have latest innovative
and creative deigns like concepts
of shadow, shimmering, vibration,
reflection, moire, optical, translucent,
netting, blurring, layering, superimposing,
etc. By using digital printing
technology, design can
be achieved with greater flexibility,
without the limitation of on repeat
size, colors, engineered designs
and outstanding photographic image
depiction. It decreases the use
of water, dyes & solutions,
industrial waste and print loss,
and is an environmentally friendly.
. The digital printing equipment
not requires much infrastructure
and it is comparatively available
in less cost. The digital printing
can be operated at greater speed
to produce high resolution prints.
Today, the printing technology developed
so much and has become eco-friendly
technology is used to perform
digital art printing on canvas with
oil based acid free inks. Prints
are extremely durable, waterproof
and fade resistant. Digitograf are
mostly suited for the reproduction
of oil paintings.
technology is mostly suited
for the reproduction of oil paintings.
Prints can be made from slides or
negatives only and, thus can not
be altered on the computer.
textile printing technology
is a flexible textile printing technology.
Digital fabric printing
technology provide noteworthy
benefits like quick turn-around,
efficient set-up and speed, economical
and great flexibility, takes less
time, alteration possible etc.
There are various
types of digital fabric printing
technology available in market.
They are thermal DOD Ink
Piezoelectric DOD ink jet fabric
printing technology, Airbrush/valve
jet fabric printing technology,
Electrostatic Sublimation Transfer
fabric printing technology, thermal
transfer fabric printing technology,
electro photography (Laser, LED)
fabric printing technology, photographic
development fabric printing technology,
Direct ink jet transfer fabric printing
technology, Continuous ink jet (CIJ)
fabric printing technology, etc.
