LATEX PRINTING - large format latex printing technology allows printing on cheap and specialised media using latex (also on the other side) and water for instant application due to the consolidation process. Latex large printing technology has characteristics of pigment printing, allowing high resistance to outdoor conditions and UV rays, which is also and advantage of solvent printing.
SOLVENT PRINTING - can be applied to almost all substrates containing PVC, especially this technology is used for printing substrates which do not allow printing with water inks. Practical usage of solvent printing are large format prints for (ex. banners) which are resistant to long term external factors. The disadvantage of this technology is less precision than other technologies however in large format printing this does not really change the quality of the print as products are usually seen from distance.
OFFSET PRINTING - industrial flat printing form in which the image is transferred from flat form to the substrate (for ex. paper) through the cylinder covered with rubber. Offset printing is now one of the most popular printing techniques.
TRANSPARENT PRINTING - technology which allows printing without the use of white color on the surface. It gives the effect of color depth. This technique is used for transparent materials such as acrylic or glass. Lack of white color on the printout is replaced with the color of the substrate (for ex. wall).
PRINTING PLOTTER OCE Arizona 350XT/480GT - amazing printers can create huge, high quality prints on a variety of rigid media to suit nearly any display graphic application. A Roll Media Option enables printing onto flexible media. A White Ink Option expands printing capabilities by enabling printing on non-white and transparent substrates. The Océ Arizona 350 XT / 480 GT printer series complies with all relevant health and safety directives including CE, UL, CSA, BG, CCC and others. It also complies with the European RoHS directives for heavy metal content. The Océ Arizona's uses UV-curable inks that do not contain volatile organic compounds.
OCE VariaDot IMAGING TECHNOLOGY - Océ VariaDot imaging technology ensures realistic, photo-like image quality. It delivers finer details and smoother gradients in highlight areas, as well as crisp colours in the mid tones, plus incredible density in shadows and areas of solid colour. Images look far superior to those printed on a conventional, fixed-droplet, 6-colour inkjet printer. The Océ VariaDot imaging technology dispenses ink droplets that vary in size from 6 to 42 picoliters.
BRITON - in simple words it is a piece of wallpaper (stripe), if the size of the product (ex. wallpaper, vinyl) is wider than 75cm it will be delivered in few separate britons (stripes).
PAPER GRAMMAGE - it's a paper weight, mass of 1m2 of the paper expressed in grams.
LAMINATION PROCESS – covering the surface of the product with laminate to obtain additional resistance, such as resistance to moisture, mechanical resistance or for decorative effects.
IMAGE RESOLUTION - describes the detail an image holds. The term applies to raster digital images, film images, and other types of images. Higher resolution means more image detail.
PIXEL - in digital imaging, a pixel is a single point in a raster image, or the smallest addressable screen element in a display device. It is the smallest unit of picture that can be represented or controlled. Each pixel has its own address. The address of a pixel corresponds to its coordinates. Pixels are normally arranged in a two-dimensional grid, and are often represented using dots or squares. Each pixel is a sample of an original image; more samples typically provide more accurate representations of the original. The intensity of each pixel is variable. In color image systems, a color is typically represented by three or four component intensities such as red, green, and blue, or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. The pixel's quantity is the most relevant factor in printing from the raster images.
DPI (Dots Per Inch) - is a measure of spatial printing or video dot density, in particular the number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch (2.54 cm). The DPI value tends to correlate with image resolution, but is related only indirectly. DPI is used to describe the resolution number of dots per inch in a digital print and the printing resolution of a hard copy print dot gain; the increase in the size of the halftone dots during printing. This is caused by the spreading of ink on the surface of the media. Up to a point, printers with higher DPI produce clearer and more detailed output. A printer does not necessarily have a single DPI measurement, it is dependent on print mode, which is usually influenced by driver settings. The range of DPI supported by a printer is most dependent on the print head technology it uses.
