Water Transfer Printing.

Now the water transfer printing method more popular, especially for Helmet Printing, Mug and other material printing with round shape. Water Transfer Printing is very easy to transfer to other media like helmet, so the process more efficient. Water Transfer Printing also called as curve coating printing (a printing method for print at surface that is not flat) this method overcomes the problem facing offset printing that can't reach the tongued and grooved face and the disadvantage from paying higher expense for the equipment.
Water Transfer Printing process can be applied to surface of the materials such as ceramic, wood, plastic, fiber, stone, hardware, glass, metal, etc. The cost for applied with this method is relative low, while their added value multiples.

Forum Percetakan | The Offset Printing

The Offset Printing Offset printing is the most commonly used printing method today. More than 50% of all printing jobs is using offset printing technique. Offset printing works with a simple manner. Offset printing uses three cylinder to transfer the printed image to the substrate. First cylinder in offset printing is mounted with offset printing plate. The image on offset printing plate is readable. The first cylinder inked and transfer image onto the rubber blanket (second cylinder). The image in rubber blanket is unreadable. After that image transferred from rubber blanket onto third cylinder or the substrate. Substrate is mounted on the third cylinder or The Impression Cylinder. The image in Impression Cylinder becomes readable again. Image in offset printing have a unique characteristic, the printed image and non-printed image are on same surface level. The printing method used a chemical process that ink and water not mixed from a single surface level. In fact, offset printing acq…

Screen Printing Technique

Screen Printing Technique
A screen is made of a piece of porous, finely woven fabric called mesh stretched over a frame of aluminum or wood. Originally human hair then silk was woven into screen mesh; currently most mesh is made of man-made materials such as steel, nylon, and polyester. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non-permeable material to form a stencil, which is a negative of the image to be printed; that is, the open spaces are where the ink will appear.
The screen is placed atop a substrate such as paper or fabric. Ink is placed on top of the screen, and a fill bar (also known as a floodbar) is used to fill the mesh openings with ink. The operator begins with the fill bar at the rear of the screen and behind a reservoir of ink. The operator lifts the screen to prevent contact with the substrate and then using a slight amount of downward force pulls the fill bar to the front of the screen. This effectively fills the mesh openings with ink and moves the ink reservoir to…

Screen Printing (Sablon)

Screen Printing
Screen printing (sablon) is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh (screen) to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.

Watermark

Watermark
A picture, text or character motif, which is incorporated into the paper during manufacture by displacement of the paper fibres, leading to a varying thickness of the paper. The watermark can be observed using transmitted light. Where the paper is thinner, we can see more light and a clearer image. Where the paper is thicker we will see a darker image. The watermark should not appear under UV light.

UV Light (UltraViolet Light)

UV Light (UltraViolet Light)
Belongs to the electromagnetic waves at the lower boundary of visible light (200 - 400 nm). A source of light that is frequently used in document examination to analyse paper brightness, fluorescent inks and other security features as well as tampering. The main UV sources used in document examination are UV sources with 365/366 nm (long-wave UV), 313 nm (medium wave UV) and 254 nm (short-wave UV) wavelength radiation. Ultraviolet "light" is not visible itself, only its effect, i.e. the visible fluorescence stimulated by UV light can be seen ( fluorescent ink, etc.).

Thermal Transfer Printing

Thermal Transfer Printing
Printing takes place by applying heat to a heat-sensitive ribbon containing wax- or resin-based ink. The coloured ink ribbon is heated over a certain area, and the melted ink is then fully transferred from the ribbon on to the substrate. Depending on the heating process the size of the transferred area of ink can be varied. Halftones are generated by rasterisation (screening). The transfer of a homogeneous layer of colour leads to dots or areas with sharp edges. Special ink ribbons, e.g. with metallic pigments, can also be used. Thermal transfer printing is a possible integration technique for biodata / photo / signature integration.

Tank Tracking - Perforation

sTank Tracking - Perforation
A method of securing a conventionally fixed (e.g. glued) image of the holder (authentication), applied with a (hand) press in the form of a pattern of lines; between the lines there are often perforated holes.

Thermal Dye Sublimation

Thermal Dye Sublimation
Like thermal transfer printers, sublimation printers use an ink ribbon. The dye on the foil is heated to a specific temperature at which it evaporates and then diffuses into the substrate. For that diffusion process a specially coated substrate is necessary. Depending on the temperature applied, a varying amount of dye is diffused into the substrate. This facilitates the production of an image with continuous tone colours. Thermal dye sublimation is a possible integration technique for biodata / photo / signature integration.

Synthetic Fibres

Synthetic Fibres
Synthetic fibres are used as a main component in some special papers; they make the paper highly durable and resistant (example: old (pink, folded) German driving licence). Not to be confused with coloured fibres, which do not contribute to the mechanical properties of a paper.

Substrate Without Optical Brightener

Substrate Without Optical Brightener
Security paper (e.g. passport paper): Does not contain optical brighteners and thus remains dark under UV light. The use of paper substrate with optical brighteners in passports is, however, also possible (but they are not used very often): Optical brighteners are substances which are incorporated during manufacture into the paper pulp (which consists mainly of wood fibres), in order to make the paper appear whiter. The presence of optical brighteners can be detected by their bluish fluorescence under UV light.

Security Thread

Security Thread
A strip (plastic, metallic, or other material) incorporated in the substrate during manufacture to serve as an additional security feature. A broad range of security threads exists, from polymer to metal-coated, coloured and micro-printed laminate strips, to highly complex threads, which possess machine-readable properties.

See-trough Register

See-trough Register
Images in accurate front-to-back register. Designs or partial motifs seemingly printed at random on the front and back of the substrate, but which match up perfectly or form a complete motif when viewed by transmitted light. Imperfect register in counterfeits will produce a blurred image when viewed by transmitted light.

Screen Printing

Screen Printing
A printing technique also known as silk-screen printing in which the print is produced by the ink being pressed with a so-called doctor blade through the permeable areas of a screen (mesh) on to the substrate below. Screen printing enables a thicker layer of ink to be applied in one operation than any other printing process. Characteristics: Generally dense covering of ink, thick layer; net structure with saw-tooth edges. In security printing, screen printing is mainly used for laminate overprints or printing of OVI.

Scrambled(Encrypted) Image

Scrambled(Encrypted) Image
By means of special software tools : individual information such as the passport number, or the holder's name, is embedded in the photograph of the holder or static information such as a country’s name, is embedded in the background printing of travel documents. This information is invisible to the human eye, as it is printed in "scrambled" format and can only be seen using a decoder lens (a special viewer) or laboratory equipment (scanner or camera with a computer with image processing software). Not to be confused with latent image, nor with tilting effect.

Schablon (stencil) Multiple Colouring Process

Schablon (stencil) Multiple Colouring Process
This colouring process - sometimes also referred to as Orlof (Orlov) process - is used in intaglio printing and enables more than one colour to be printed simultaneously and accurately with one printing plate. A modern printing press can often print several colours (e.g. 3, 4, or 5). The individual colours are applied via individual stencils that match the elements or parts of the required final design. These stencils are also referred to as schablons (or chablons). The inks may overlap to a small extent and in the final printed image a slight colour transition can therefore be seen. The colour transitions need not, as in rainbow colouring (offset printing), run parallel to the direction of printing.
