Why do you say that the more manufacturers of high-speed cylindrical bottle printers with the same head, the more problems there will be?

Shouldn’t it be that the more there are, the more mature the technology is, and the lower the cost of replacement and maintenance of later parts, how can it be the other way around? If it is in a mature industry, it is correct. But if you are in an immature, developing industry, this sentence is correct.

Then analyze it from three angles:

The first thing to understand is that the high-speed cylindrical bottle printer is an industry that has only been developed for more than 10 years, and it is a traditional industrial equipment field, not a mass consumer product, but a very small field. Even the big brands in the first line still have many technical bottlenecks, and the failure rate of equipment is much higher than that of civilian electronic products.

Secondly, the high-speed cylinder bottle printer is an industry with a technology monopoly and resource monopoly. In terms of technology, the R&D expenses, manpower, and material resources invested by large manufacturers are far from being able to participate and compete during small holidays, and the products they make are aimed at different market groups. Resource monopoly refers to the head and core function design. The more expensive the head, the more only a few manufacturers are doing it.

Finally, is the high-speed cylindrical bottle printer with fewer heads of the same type necessarily better? This is not, it depends on the price of the head, the higher the price of the head, the higher the technical level of the manufacturer required, if the price of the head is very low, and few manufacturers do it, it can only show that this kind of spraying is not suitable In the field of high-speed cylindrical bottle printers, it is only used to fool customers.

After understanding the common sense of these two industries, let’s look at:

1. The more manufacturers of the same type of head are doing it, the more it means that the entry-level is relatively low and the technical level requirements are low. Of course, some of them have done well, but the proportion in the overall proportion is very low. For uninitiated consumers, it is easy to buy inferior equipment without professional knowledge.

2. The price of heads fluctuates greatly. Since there is no fixed channel or agent for the supply of heads, most of the heads in the hands of end users have gone through 2-3 hands, and the price has directly increased. Just like the Ricoh 5 print head in 2016, it was fired from $2,600 to $3,880. Customers have to pay an extra $1,280 for each print head, and an extra $6,700 for a machine.

3. It is difficult to maintain in the later stage. Most of these types appear in a swarm. The more common ones are Epson heads in the first 2 years, Konica heads in the next 2 years, and Ricoh heads in the next 2 years. Most of them The appearance is the same, the system motherboard is bought by someone else, and it is sold to consumers after a little modification. When choosing, I would rather have a UV printer manufacturer with one head type for 3 years than a manufacturer with 3-4 types of heads for seven or eight years.

The key to buying industrial equipment is professionalism, not variety. A sprinkler head can be made well and professionally, and the precipitation of six or seven years is indispensable. Blindly following the trend, most of the pits are customers. Especially in the past few years, many new brands have emerged, and many have closed down one after another.
