Interview of the General Manager of Shenyang Sky Air-ship Digital Printing Equipment Co., Ltd.: The Magic of Double Side Printing



Double-sided printing is an effective means to increase the added value of printed products. However, the double-sided printing products on the market tend to be cumbersome in production process, not only increase the cost of manpower and time, but also the quality is uneven, which runs counter to the original intention of the people.

Shenyang Sky Air-ship Digital Printing Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as " Sky Air-ship") create the double-sided digital printing one-step molding technology, which has changed the status quo of the industry, from the perspective of innovation, to give users the right to speak in the market.

Double-sided printing The opportunity from the advertising industry to the textile industry

“In fact, double-sided printing technology is not a new technology.” The general manager of Sky Air-ship Wanghui said that as one of the earliest and large-scale digital printing equipment manufacturers in China, the Sky Air-ship has accumulated 14 years printing technology in the advertising industry and obtained invention patents from China, Japan, the United States, the European Union and other countries and regions.

At present, the Sky Air-ship has reached cooperation with major high-end advertising brands at home and abroad, using double-sided printing technology for advanced application services, like the advertising light box of Shanghai Airport and the double-sided hanging flag of Apple store, which are all powerful demonstrations of this technical achievement. The double-sided printing equipment can provide end users with double-sided printing products with excellent color and texture according to different printing needs.





Opportunities are always for those who are prepared. Sky Air-ship with deep technical background had accepted the problem of the textile field handed over by Wensli – “double-sided printing” last year.

Miss Wang told the reporters that "compared with traditional printing, the ink penetration of ordinary digital printing is poor, resulting in obvious color difference between the front and back of the printed product, and the double-sided printing process of two printing is not only complicated and error-prone, but also more picky with pattern. Customers are eager to have a technology that brings breakthroughs to overcome process defects and improve productivity, so they found us.”

Sky Air-ship began to think about how to transfer the application of double-sided printing technology from advertising products to textile fabrics, and carried out a series of design and research and development. At that time, a common problem faced by the textile printing industry was that the textile fabrics were various and varied, which brought great challenge to the printing equipment, and need to be produced with different inks, printing heads and processes, which has invisibly increased the cost.





To this end, Sky Air-ship classifies fabrics into two types: easy to deform and not easy to deform. In order to reduce the workload of manual intervention in the double-sided printing process, an automatic alignment printing system has been developed to intelligently track and identify the displacement, deformation of the fabrics, automatic adjust the printing parameters to ensure the quality and effect of printing.

On this basis, the TD1800S printing machine, which carries the double-sided digital printing and one-step molding technology, was shocked and made a sensation in the textile industry. Since then, Sky Air-ship has officially conducted its business backed up by advertising and start with textile products.

Technological innovation brings "discourse power" to users

The world's first double-sided digital printing technology has stirred up the calm situation of the printing market. Many people are very curious about what kind of printing effect the technology can produce and what practical benefits it will bring to the user.

According to Miss Wang, the double-sided printing of Sky Air-ship is not limited by the type of fabric and ink, which is suitable for printing complex patterns and can realize three processes:

1. Same pattern, same color. Solve the problem of poor ink penetration, and achieve no color difference between two sides of the printing.

2. Same pattern, different color. Create a creative contrast color and increase the added value of the product.

3. Different pattern, different color. Presenting a two-sided pattern overlay, designers are free to create new and fashionable print fabrics that are difficult to imitate.





It is worth noting that the time required for the double-side printing of the TD1800S printing machine is the same as that of the ordinary single-sided printing. Compared with two times printing, one-step printing has greatly improved the production efficiency. Its operation is also very simple, allowing users to use it freely in the actual production process.

The double-sided printing technology of Sky Air-ship is regarded as a significant technological innovation in the textile field. It has been recognized by many professionals in the textile industry, and often reaped rewards like “technical content” and “technical level”.





Miss Wang believes that the particularity of technology and process is the competitiveness of Sky Air-ship. Today, with the overflow of homogenized products, only innovation can go a long way. The machine structure and pattern alignment program of TD1800S printing machine are all patented technologies independently developed by Sky Air-ship, which are non-reproducible. This not only allowed Sky Air-ship to establish its own market position, but also brought the discourse power to the clothing brand and printing brand that it served.

"What brands want is that they have something that others have not so as to create differentiation to improve product value." Miss Wang said. Double-sided printing has drew away from other homogenized processes, not easily to imitate and surpass, break blindly comparing production capacity and price constraints, providing high-end users with broad profit margins and becoming  one of the key factors for the brand to stand out in the market game.

Further, constantly overcome customer problems

Last year, according to the problems raised by Wensli, Sky Air-ship combined the double-sided printing technology with the digital printing process to develop a high-precision double-sided printing machine suitable for silk fabrics, and printed many silk samples for users.

This year, Sky Air-ship has customized a new model for the needs of Erdos, using Star nozzles and a larger structure to make the machine more suitable for wool and cashmere fabrics.



Miss Wang said, "Customers raise questions and requests, we have to solve them." With the development of the industry, people have put forward various requirements for the speed, quality and convenience of printing. Sky Air-ship will carry out research and development according to the customer's process needs, discuss with customers, promote technology upgrade and improve machine performance. .

She said that Sky Air-ship will continue to use double-sided printing technology as the core competitiveness of the company, deepen the market segment of double-sided printing, horizontally to the side, vertically to the end, continuously improve printing technology, adapt to different printing needs, and serve the top brands.

Presumably driven by innovation, Sky Air-ship will go higher and further.
