(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR HIGH SPEED VARIABLE PRINTING
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS D'IMPRESSION VARIABLE HAUTE VITESSE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for high-speed variable printing are provided. Ink jet technology and lithographic systems may be combined in such a way to create a fully variable and high-quality print system. An aqueous solution is applied to a cylinder to produce a first negative image. A positive image in ink is transferred to a print medium. Residue ink and aqueous solution is then cleaned from the cylinder and aqueous solution is applied to the cylinder to produce a second negative image. The systems and methods described herein may be used to create high-quality one-to-one marketing applications.

L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés d'impression variable haute vitesse. La technologie à jet d'encre et des systèmes lithographiques peuvent être combinés de manière à créer un système d'impression de haute qualité entièrement variable. Une solution aqueuse est appliquée sur un cylindre pour obtenir une première image négative. Une image positive est transférée dans l'encre vers un moyen d'impression. L'encre résiduelle et la solution aqueuse sont alors éliminées du cylindre, et la solution aqueuse est appliquée sur le cylindre pour obtenir une seconde image négative. Les systèmes et procédés de l'invention peuvent être utilisés pour créer des applications de marketing individuelles de haute qualité.
