Transcript of Industrial Revolution: The Printing Press

Industrial Revolution The Printing Press The Printing Press The printing press was invented to be more efficient and faster than making manual copies. The industrial revolution introduced printing presses that required 90% less force but allowed for more than double area for printing.The industrial revolution first explored a cast iron printing press but eventually went to a steam printing press that was faster producing 1100 copies an hour rather than 250 from the cast iron press. Lastly, printing press evolved into a much faster and more efficient printing press called rotary press. with this you could print 1 million copies a day. The industrial revolution helped to advance the printing press and enhance the production. Also employing many people to operate the machines. Contributions to the high success of printing • Gutenberg’s first printing press with interchangeable parts
a) Made the process quicker and easier
• Low literacy rate
a) There weren't any books to be read
b) Before the printing press, there were only two repositories, that each held around two thousand books.
c) After the printing press an estimated 10 million copies of 40 thousand different titles were created within 50 years. How Has Printing Changed? Before the printing press, documents were kept by hand, on regular paper
With the original printing press, there was only block printing
Modern Printing is now quicker and more efficent, using Introduction The industrial revolution was the start of more technology being made to help increase productivity rates, and decrease the need for manual labor. A very important part of the industrial revolution was the invention of the printing press. The end of Printing? We do believe that printing has reached its climax. With more and more things becoming electronic, we are starting to use paper in general, less and less. We no longer have to send letters, with the invention of email, and we don't have to print out papers to hand them in to our professors, we just upload it to a certain site, or again, use email. Another example of how printing has climaxed, is the fact that no one really reads news papers anymore. Back in the older times, the news paper was the only source of information that they had to let people know what was going on in the world. Now all we have to do, is watch the news on television or go online. Conclusion There always has been press, but with the invention of the printing press in 1463, brought us where we are in the western world today. Johannnes Gutenberg, the inventor of the original printing press, also invented the oil-based ink, which was more durable than the water based inks. With the invention of the printing press, it became easier to document important findings, a huge help to the scientist back then. It also helped in making the documents more legible, or easier to read. Throughout the decade there have been many different versions of the printing press, each one a little faster and more efficient than the last. Overall, the printing press was a huge part of ancient society, especially during the industrial revolution. It’s still a part of modern society, even though not as much.
