The current situation and development trend of Japan's printing industry (III)

issues facing Japan's printing industry. The so-called market maturity means that the output value is not high, which is a fundamental problem in operation. In addition, the decline of unit price has been a major problem for many years. It is speculated that the unit price has decreased by 20% in the past 6 ~ 7 years. In the industry, there is a trend to avoid excessive price competition. At the same time, some people believe that the pre press digitalization has led to the reduction of added value, and the oversupply will further reduce the price by 20%

as for the delivery time, it has been reduced by 40% in the last 6-7 years. However, it is still required to shorten the delivery time


the Japanese printing industry solves the above problems through various ways

1. In order to improve the quality of printing, we are promoting the standardization of printing and color management. In addition, the application of quality inspection device and tone management device especially suitable for thick paper printing is also promoted

2. In order to improve the operation rate of equipment, promote the equipment maintenance activity called TPM (total productive maintenance). It also promotes preventive maintenance to prevent failures

3. promote multi-color unit structure

4. promote high added value in order to improve the added value of prints, including high-quality printing, surface processing, coating and polishing, one-time double-sided printing, and the use of special materials

5. promote the automation of production process, so that the small editor of Jinan new era assaying Instrument Co., Ltd. can give you a detailed understanding of how the plastic zigzag detection is operated. Through the application of CIM, MIS and JDF, we can eliminate the unprofitable consumption of resources between processes, and then achieve rationalization. In the printing industry of Japan, the reform in this regard is being actively promoted to make the printing industry develop in a profitable and attractive direction

in order to adapt to the four major changes in the industry, the all Japan printing industry association, which is composed of Japanese printing enterprises, is established: ① internationalization; ② High informatization; ③ Minority Aging; ④ Maturation. Last year, a plan called "2008 Plan" was launched to promote industrial change. It is proposed to change the printing industry into an information value creation industry

in order to solve the problems of the printing industry in Japan, Komori company, which I served as the president, has manufactured various types of offset printing machines. For example, various automatic devices, such as the sheet fed offset press litheron S40, offset rotary press system 38S, double-sided printing machine with turnover mechanism, double-sided special printing machine, full-automatic plate changing device, improve the ability to meet the market demand of on-demand printing, and further strive to reduce the waste paper rate. In addition, the technical content of DONet (Digital open architecture netwo interface/digital open network system) has been further improved, and the after-sales service and pre inspection service will be further strengthened


in order to cope with the production of multiple varieties and small batches, Japan's machine tool machinery industry has introduced a variety of mature technologies in the world to the market in the 1980s. It pays attention to the use of FMS (flexible manufacturing system), a local enterprise manufacturing system from coastal and riverside towns. In the first half of the 1990s, it began to turn its attention to CIM (Computer Integrated Manufacturing). In addition, in the global competition, in order to make up for Japan's high labor cost and talent shortage caused by aging, FA (factory automation) factory automation activities have been promoted to make the factory realize roboticization and automation

in the printing industry in Japan, CIM is valued. It is speculated that its development process should be the same as that of the machine tool machinery industry. In view of the situation of multi variety and small batch production and global competition, China will also be forced to carry out technological innovation and business innovation in the future

it is hoped that in the future, China's printing industry will pay attention to observing the trends of developed printing countries such as Europe, America and Japan, and learn from their strengths in their own printing operations
