Advantages of Using Three-D Printing Processes


There are mainly three ways to print; glossy, semi-gloss, matte and CMYK printing. The three major printing methods are; inkjet printing, digital printing and platelet printing. Printing is the process that involves the use of chemicals or ink, to print on paper, plastic, metal etc. There are many methods of printing, but printing development is the most important part of all.

Woodblock printing is one of the most common methods for mass printing development. This is because the woodblocks come in a very large format, which can be easily reproduced on a printing press. However, printing from a woodblock printing press is very time consuming. After the development of the wood blocks, the images need to be transferred onto paper and then dried. It usually takes around 30 days to dry, but this depends on the quality of the ink used.

There are many advantages of using three-dimensional printing. With the help of three-dimensional printing machines manufacturers can get the best-looking surface out of their products. Three-dimensional printers can be used to print on a wide range of materials including metals, ceramics, plastics, fiberglass etc. Most three-dimensional printers use solid ink cartridges. This type of ink is produced by spraying the ink on the three-dimensional surface that you want to print.

Another popular printing process is screen printing process. In this method, an image is printed by pressing the print head against a surface that has ink emulsion. The emulsion that is formed on the surface of the printhead allows the image that is printed on the material to be seen clearly.

In both offset printing and digital printing there are two ways to develop the image such as, traditional setup printing as well as laser printing. Both these methods use different techniques that are suitable for the requirements of the customers. In case of traditional setup printing a copy of the original document is made which is run through a press and then it is copied several times on paper to create a copy that is mounted on the press. For the purpose of offset printing the first copy is printed by the offset machine and later it is fed into the press via a roll cutter.

In case of digital printing the image is being created from computerized software such as Photoshop, Corel draw, etc. After creating the image through these programs the image gets moved to a press via the help of conventional printing equipment. The image gets printed on a special type of paper that is coated with inkjet material. This inkjet material is specially made for emitting light when it is needed. This process is known as digital printing, as it uses much less paper as compared to the traditional printing process.

The other benefit of using three-dimensional printing is that it provides an unlimited number of copies of an original document. Unlike the conventional manufacturing methods this process creates a high quality result in lesser time. Printing on three-dimensional surfaces such as plastic, metal, glass also creates unique effects and results in unique looking final products. The reason behind this is the fact that printing on these surfaces allows the designers to merge various textures and colors in order to give better results.

Nowadays printing technology has advanced a lot and new and better printers have been developed along with the printers. These printers are available in various price ranges and with various features. There are digital printers that print in full color, sepia, or gray scale, along with various other options. You can choose a printer according to your printing needs and budget. Also, you can find three-d printers that are ideal for printing large volumes. So, the next time you need to print any document you can surely rely on additive manufacturing methods.
