The First thing you need to know is Nano-printing is one of the most innovative discoveries in the dominion of the print industry. Printing wasn’t common until, in the early 1400s, Gutenberg discovered the first printer of the world.
After that, the printing technology keeps on developing itself quite impressively. Apple and Hewlett-Packard compositely worked on laser technology in the late 80s. This laser tech was the foundation where dry ink was used. We all know that after this Apple may have struggled but HP thrives in this technology.
And then began a new era of printing revolution. But it was the Drupa 2012 trade fair where a man named Benny Landa introduced the nano printing technology. He phrases this methodology as nanography. Later in 2016 Drupa trade fair, new and innovative ways were introduced about how nanography can improve printing.
In this post, we will address all the major aspects through which you will understand how nanography can be used and become the future of printing.
Without further ado, let’s get you started
What Is A Nanography?
The first thing you need to understand is, Nanography works similarly to the traditional printing. But this method is way too faster. This method allows you to extract even more colours from the CMYK spectrum. The party doesn’t stop there, it gives you the ability to get it printed on the variety of materials and paper types as well.
So, what do we understand from this?
Nanography is nothing but an inkjet process that makes use of a special type of ink which is first put on the belt and then it applies to the substrate. It is safe to say that many web presses are faster than the Landa’s W10, but yes, we cannot compare the quality delivered by the nanography as there are infinite colours produced from CMYK spectrum.
So in a nutshell, Nanography has the potential to guide the printing realm in the coming future.
Let’s now understand how nanography is different from traditional printing.
Different Tenets You Must Know About Nanography
In this section of the post, we will discuss some of the tenets that makes Nanography a candidate for being the future of printing. Let’s discuss them briefly.
■ It Uses Nano Pigments
Printing in Nanography is basically a rain of billions of nano pigments or you can say microscopic droplets on the land. These nano pigments land on the image that is in the conveyor belt.
■ A Timed Ink Drop Ejection
In order to attain the high level of accuracy, nanography uses a timed ink drop ejection between the separation of inks and it gives high-end yields as well.
■ It Dries Ink Faster
In the process of nanography, each droplet of the nano pigments drops on a heated sheet of the blanket. The heat dries up the water in the pigment drop which allows you to process it faster.
■ Uses Ultra Thin Ink
When the water of the ink dries, the polymeric film in the ink makes the ink ultra thin. It is claimed and well observed that no other printing method has thinner ink as nanography.
■ No Penetration Of Colours
Generally in traditional printing techniques, when the paint dries, it loses its texture which leads to the penetration of the colours. In nanography, the ink is 500-nm thin ink instantly bond with the surface which avoids any sort of penetration in the actual texture of the paint.
■ No Post Dry Requirement
As the layer of the paint is thin and it lands on a hot surface. This makes the colour drop lose the water content in it. This gives a great texture which does not require to dry off post printing.
■ Faster Printed Output
As there is no requirement of post dry treatment after printing, the final product is always ready to take away as soon as it gets printed.
■ Low Consumption Of Energy
The nanographic printing is well known for its low consumption of energy. It is also best to have the lowest per-page of digital printing among the present printing technologies.
■ Less Costly Ink Carrier
As I mentioned above, nanographics has the lowest per-page printing. And as they are water-based ink, the ink carriers are cheaper than that of UV-based or solvent based inks.
■ Low-Cost Printing
Printing with nanographic on any substrate is very cheap in comparison to other printing techniques. Whether it is coated or uncoated paper, the cost-yield is significantly different from other traditional printing techniques.
Nanographics Printing Technique: The Future?
Well, looking at the aforementioned points, it seems likely. It is safe to say that the technique we always look for printing that is friendly to our environment and cost-effective as well. Nanographics suits all of these criteria. We hope that in the coming days we will see large scale of use of nano-printing techniques.
