The Inventor Of The Printing Machine

Johann Gutenberg was born in Germany around the year 1400 in Mainz city. He is considered the inventor of the printing machine. What he actually did was develop the first method is the use of font print move and print machine in the form such that various kinds of written material can be printed quickly and precisely. there’s no discovery that way they skip from the thought of someone, not a machine print. The seal and the orb seal that the process adheres to the principles similar to block printing was already known in China centuries before Gutenberg was born and the evidence shows that in the year 868 M a book mold has been discovered in China. A similar process is also already known to people in Europe before Gutenberg.

Block printing


Block printing allows printing many copies of a specific book. This process has one drawback: because a set of new as well as complete of carved wood or metal should be made for a book so it is not practical to print a wide variety of books.

the Donation of the most important Gutenberg’s invention in the field of printing letters that can move. In this case, also something similar is already found in China around the mid-11th century by a man named Pi Sheng. The letters of the print original are made of a kind of soil that could not be durable. Meanwhile, some Chinese and Korean been doing a spate of improvements and managed well before Gutenberg. Korean people use the letters printed metal and the Korean government helped a smelter to produce printed letters at the beginning of the 15th century. Escape from all this, are mistaken also if you think Pi Sheng a that have special. On the first level, Europeans do not learn the letters of the print move from China but on his own. The second, scored by way of printed letters move has never been used in general in China itself until recently when the procedure of printing modern they learn from the West.

There are four components of the essential ways of modern printing. First, the letter print deal, here are some setup procedures and the laying of the letters is well established. Second, the printing machine itself. Third, the ink that is harmonious to produce the mold. Fourth, materials such as paper to print it. That’s the only element of the process of printing Gutenberg’s ready so. Although other people never do the kinds of work against each component, Gutenberg had successfully done various improvements. For example, he developed metal mixed metal for printed letters; pouring the liquid metal for the letters of the printing block in a proper and thoroughly; oil printing inks and presses required to print.

Contributions in the Gutenberg Bible as a whole is larger than anyone also in terms of the refinement of the printing machine. Its importance mainly lies in its success combining all the elements of the printing machine into a system that is effective and productive. Therefore the printing machine is different from the other contrivances previously, which is the process of large-scale production the main. A book the print results not much different from a book written by the hand. The advantages of machine printing thus lie in terms of the production of large-magnitude. What has been developed by Gutenberg was not by a tool or the invention of sense and not just a spate of improvements, but a complete production process.

Gutenberg has never looked like a businessman; he really had no desire to can money from the invention. He is often involved with the court indictment which resulted in the necessity for him to pay a ransom in the form of tools equipment to his friend named Johann Fust. Gutenberg died in 1468 in Mainz city.

one of the influences of Gutenberg in the history of the world can be profitable if we connect with developments in China and Europe in subsequent periods. At the time Gutenberg was born the two regions were almost the same rapid advancement. But after Gutenberg invented the printing press, the European darted forward with a rapid while the Chinese are still using a printing block of its development is rather slow. It may be excessive if we say the development of printing the only factor that causes the difference in the rate of progress but the invention of it clearly has important meaning that can’t be removed.
