The development of the times, the progress of society, and the improvement of the public's aesthetic needs make printed matter no longer limited to the simple model of information carrier, but appear in an image with more aesthetic value and use value. Taking printing and packaging products as an example, according to relevant statistics, good packaging can increase commodity sales by 15% - 18%. As a result, the market began to emphasize the importance of design, layout, color and decoration processing, and turned the growing demand into a challenge to all links of printing, especially post press processing

post press processing is an important means to ensure the quality of printing products and realize value-added. Through modification and decoration, the product grade is greatly improved and its special functions are increased. So in a sense, post press processing is the key to the success or failure of printing products. The key to determine the post press processing lies in people and equipment. Labor shortage threatens post press development, which increases the stretching space (with the advantage of increasing the demographic dividend to more than 210 meters, Chinese printing enterprises have been seizing the global printing market share with a smile. However, in recent years, this advantage has gradually lost its dazzling aura. The shortage of labor and the rise of labor costs have become a barrier to the growth of enterprise profits. I remember that there were at least fiveorsix people competing to recruit a worker 2000 years ago. Now, although the salary has more than doubled, it is difficult to find a contract Suitable talents. In my opinion, the rise in labor costs can be attributed to the following points. ① The shortage of front-line staff has become an unavoidable topic for many enterprises. ② The new generation of post-80s and post-90s employees have strong personalities, many of whom are unwilling to engage in repetitive and boring work, and choose to leave when they are slightly unhappy, which greatly increases the pressure on the employment and training links of enterprises. ③ The development of emerging industries and challenging jobs attract more young employees, which directly leads to the increase of employee turnover rate in printing enterprises. ④ The average working cycle of newly recruited employees in the enterprise is relatively short, resulting in an increase in skill training costs. Compared with prepress and printing, post press is the most concentrated corner of labor, which is determined by its own characteristics of complex and diversified processes and relatively low degree of automation. Therefore, the post press, which is characterized by labor-intensive, has more deeply felt the threat of labor shortage. On the one hand is the rising labor costs, on the other hand is the stable post press processing wages, this profit scissors difference makes the printing enterprises face the crisis of difficult development, or even survival. Perhaps, for printing enterprises, especially those mainly after printing, only by facing up to the changes in labor, breaking away from the dependence on cheap labor, and realizing the transformation from extensive labor price advantage to intensive technology advantage, can we find a breakthrough in the bottleneck. The results of the intelligent force assisted printing experiment can be automatically saved and developed after printing. Post printing equipment refers to a kind of equipment that further processes the semi-finished printing products to strengthen or beautify their binding, appearance, flatness, anti-counterfeiting, packaging and other aspects. Such as paper cutting equipment, folding and sewing equipment, glazing and calendering equipment, film coating and gluing equipment, bronzing and coding equipment, punching and binding equipment, etc. The development of post press equipment in modern times can be classified as three changes. The first change: in the mid-1950s, the change from manual to single machine; The second change: in the early 1980s, some enterprises' experiments on the production of solvent-free synthetic leather have achieved new achievements, from semi-automatic single machine to full-automatic online change; The third change: since the mid-1990s, everything has moved closer to international standards, and fully automatic single machine and linkage have entered the advanced level. Since the third reform, the post press can no longer rely on cheap labor. Through the development of automation and intelligent coupling line, printing enterprises can get out of the post press profit bottlenecks, such as poor compatibility with matrix resin, poor dispersion effect in molten thermoplastic, poor mobility, and difficult extrusion processing. On the contrary, the rise of labor costs has also forced printing enterprises to begin to understand and accept automatic post press equipment. In addition, customers are increasingly demanding for production efficiency, so it is imperative to improve the intelligent level of post press production. The focus of post press intelligence is to use high-tech and practical technology to transform and improve the automation, intelligence and networking level of paperback linkage line, hardcover linkage line, die cutting linkage line and paper cutting linkage line, so as to ensure the stability and reliability of quality, improve labor production efficiency, reduce workers' labor intensity and improve the working environment. Market research shows that the printing industry has an urgent demand for high-end automatic printing equipment, especially post press automation equipment. However, how to help their enterprises counter attack printing profits through a suitable intelligent device is another choice in front of printing enterprises. Chinese enterprises challenge the post press market. At present, the current situation of China's post press equipment manufacturing market is that there are surplus low-end products and a large number of medium and high-end products rely on imports, which seems to run counter to the reality that printing enterprises' demand for post press equipment is mainly concentrated in medium and high-end equipment. As a result, Chinese post press equipment manufacturing enterprises began to work hard to develop and manufacture domestic equipment that can replace imported equipment in the field of medium and high-end post press equipment. In fact, the cost of purchasing domestic equipment is only one third of the cost of purchasing imported equipment, so purchasing domestic intelligent equipment is the best way for printing enterprises, especially small and medium-sized printing enterprises with weak capital accumulation, to improve their production capacity and reduce production costs. At present, in China, some equipment manufacturing enterprises are tirelessly developing medium and high-end post press equipment that can be in line with international standards, and have made breakthroughs. Shanghai Zihong Machinery Co., Ltd. is one of them. It has always been a leading enterprise in the manufacturing field of folding machine, three side book cutting machine, hardbound single machine and intelligent coupling machine in China. On the basis of years of experience, through technical integration and innovation, it has developed an intelligent hardbound coupling line product group, filling the domestic gap and breaking the monopoly situation of foreign enterprises, Provide strong technical support for the development of hardcover printing enterprises in China, and provide substantive help for enterprises to reduce labor costs. At the China print 2013 exhibition held in May 2013, Shanghai Zihong's intelligent hardcover linkage production line has been officially demonstrated and launched. Throughout the development of the international printing industry, the mainstream direction of the progress of post press technology is clear, that is, online, intelligent, automated, reduce dependence on people, and reduce intermediate duplication, low efficiency, and physical labor. Invested in this technological progress, printing enterprises can naturally be invincible
