Analysis of the post press binding market of books and periodicals (I)

wireless adhesive binding of books and periodicals is a popular way of book block binding after an experiment in the 1970s. Due to the characteristics of less working procedures, fast processing speed, short production cycle, stable quality, low labor intensity and beautiful binding, the wireless adhesive binding process has been recognized by more and more consumers and publishers. It has developed rapidly in modern book printing, and has gradually become the main way of modern binding since the 1980s. In the future, the decoration level of the printing and binding process of books and periodicals will continue to improve, and the degree of equipment automation will also continue to improve

the development of wireless binding technology from a simple wireless binding machine to today's complex wireless binding linkage production line is a great progress in book printing. Now, the wireless adhesive binding process has spread all over the country, and the wireless adhesive binding linkage production line has become the main equipment for paperback books

in order to fully understand the application and market situation of the wireless adhesive binding linkage production line in mainland China, we conducted a preliminary investigation on the overall situation of the wireless adhesive binding linkage production line used by mainland printing enterprises for the first time, so as to increase the understanding of the wireless adhesive binding linkage production line in the industry. In the investigation and interview, we strive to have a comprehensive and accurate grasp of the market, but due to the constraints of some objective factors, it is not satisfactory. Here, I would like to thank Mr. Wang huaizhu, a post press binding expert interviewed by us, Mr. Chen Zhen, manager of marketing department in northern China of Martini Beijing company, Mr. Wei Ming, chief representative of Beijing Office of Gaohua Equipment Co., Ltd., Mr. Zhang Jianfa, general manager of North China of Manroland (China) Co., Ltd., relevant personnel of beiren group, Mr. Chen Guomin, chairman and general manager of Hangzhou Changming printing factory Panjianhong, director of the equipment department of Suzhou general printing factory, and Mr. Zhang of Beijing Jincheng publishing house

current situation of book binding

at present, the main methods of book binding in China include hardcover, horseback binding and wireless adhesive binding

hardcover: for important classic works, academic works, important historical materials, picture books, Atlas, reference books and other books with preservation value, hardcover binding is mostly used in China. Hardcover books have a hard shell, and some are also sealed, which has a good protective effect on the book block. Due to the different nature of publications of various publishing houses, the proportion of hardcover books is also different. In general, the varieties and output of hardcover books in the Chinese market are much less than paperback books. Only weigh the raw materials according to the formula first, accounting for 4% - 5% of the total bookbinding volume. The hardcover books published by each publishing house are generally less than 10% every year. For example, Beijing Jincheng Publishing House published only three kinds of hardcover books in 2004. This figure is obviously very few for publishing houses and the book market. The small market and high cost are the bottleneck restricting the development of hardcover books

horse riding binding: it is mainly used for small format books and periodicals that can only be bound with about 100 pages. Generally, it is a journal with large demand and need to be published in time. The speed of ordering books on horseback is fast and the cost is low. When browsing, the books and periodicals can be spread flat for easy reading, but the iron wire is easy to rust and has low fastness, which is not conducive to the preservation of books and periodicals. Horse riding binding has a market share of about 30%

wireless adhesive binding: high quality and beautiful books come from mature binding technology. Wireless adhesive binding is the most commonly used efficient binding method in the printing industry at present. Wireless adhesive binding technology is mainly used for paperback books, magazines, annual reports, corporate image manuals and other printed materials. Due to the beautiful appearance of wireless adhesive binding products, this process is usually used for binding products with a thickness of more than 10mm. At present, more than 60% of books in China use wireless binding technology, and this proportion will continue to grow

compared with the difficulty of hardcover and the step-by-step ordering of books and periodicals, the development of wireless adhesive binding has a bright future. Since the large-scale technological transformation of China's printing industry began in the 1980s, the development scale of the printing industry has become larger and larger, and the market has higher and higher requirements for binding quality, which has promoted the promotion of wireless adhesive binding linkage production line in the Chinese market

in the "development plan for the publishing industry in 2000 and 2010" issued by the General Administration of publishing, it is proposed that the development speed of publishing and printing in China within 10 years, that is, the total printing volume of books and periodicals increases by 7% annually, and the total printing volume of newspapers increases by 10% annually. It can be predicted that the demand of the book market will show a rapid growth trend in the future, and the prosperity of the book market will further promote the development of wireless adhesive binding technology

although post press processing has also made great achievements in the overall development process of the printing industry, it is still the weakest link in the printing industry. The uneven distribution of interests in the three links of publishing, printing and binding in China has led to serious problems in the quality of post press binding. In recent years, affected by the rapid development of post press processing technology in foreign developed countries, some domestic peers have clearly realized that under the background of increasingly improved printing technology and equipment, the competitive hot spot of the printing industry will shift from the field of post press binding and finishing with complex processes and diverse forms. Prepress, printing and post press are a systematic project, which jointly determines the quality of printed products. It has become a consensus to pay attention to post press processing. In addition, the post press processing equipment is also gradually developing in the direction of automation and deep level. The launch of a large number of wireless adhesive binding linkage production lines has injected new vitality into the book market, greatly improved the quality of book forming, shortened the publishing cycle, and laid a good foundation for the development of the mainland book publishing industry

however, Mr. Wang huaizhu pointed out that the development of adhesive binding technology in China seems to have entered a misunderstanding. Books and periodicals that should have been bound by hardcover, horse riding or other methods also use wireless adhesive binding, resulting in many problems in post press binding. Moreover, the wireless adhesive binding process mainly uses EVA hot melt adhesive, whose characteristics determine that the colloid will inevitably age, but the aging cycle is unknown, which has buried a great hidden danger for the wireless adhesive binding books. With the increasing tightening of coal supply at the beginning of the year, it is not conducive to the long-term preservation of the wireless adhesive binding books. The binding process should be the coexistence of various methods, and different binding methods should be adopted according to the different characteristics of books and periodicals. The phenomenon of one binding method taking the lead deviates from the development track of binding technology

the production line is dominated by disputes all over the world

China has a history of more than 20 years since Shanghai printing system introduced the first paperback adhesive binding linkage production line in the early 1980s. It is reported that the development of wireless adhesive binding linkage production line in China has experienced two peaks:

(1) the mid-1980s. The world bank, including financial organization bidding and other international economic changes have affected the development of wireless adhesive binding linkage production lines, and domestic enterprises have begun to introduce some wireless adhesive binding linkage production lines

(2) from the late 1990s to the early 21st century. Driven by the "Tenth Five Year Plan" and China's accession to the WTO and other favorable conditions, the General Administration of publication has carried out institutional reform and technical equipment transformation of some major printing enterprises under it. State owned enterprises have been introduced to the market, and private enterprises have also developed rapidly. At this stage, the sales of wireless adhesive binding combined production lines are booming

after that, under the situation of good macro environment, sustained economic growth and increasingly fierce competition in the printing industry, the wireless adhesive binding linkage production line entered a stage of steady development. At present, China has more than 200 wireless adhesive binding linkage production lines, mainly imported brands, and domestic equipment also accounts for a certain proportion. The imported wireless adhesive binding linkage production line mainly comes from the agent of Kolbus Gaohua printing equipment Co., Ltd. in Germany, the agent of Wallenberg Manroland (China) Co., Ltd., and martini in Switzerland. The domestic manufacturers include beiren group - beiren group formally reached an agreement with Tokyo publishing Machinery Co., Ltd. (TSK) on January 15, 2002, using OEM cooperation. The zxjd series single copy and double copy non-linear adhesive binding linkage production line produced by Tokyo publishing Machinery Co., Ltd. (TSK) is sold in China under the "beiren" brand and Shanghai Ziguang Machinery Co., Ltd
