Creative theme – enter the era of intelligent printing
In the 1990s, the United States firstly put forward the concept of intelligent manufacturing. Nowadays, the Industry 4.0 of Germany, industrial internet of the U.S., and Made in China 2025 all essentially point to a core, known as intelligent manufacturing. Made in China 2025 will focus on accelerating new generation information technology and manufacturing, and make efforts to promote intelligent manufacturing. It will take ten years to realize the historic breakthrough in manufacturing and transfer the focus from quantity to quality.
In this historic backdrop, upgrading to intelligent processes in the field of printing is being initiated. Meanwhile, the intelligent transformation of printing and packaging enterprises has also begun with the technical support from printing device corporations. Intelligent manufacturing and production combine to form the printing industry environment, which will define the future of intelligent printing. This promising initiative requires joint efforts of all stakeholders in the industry chain. The theme of AIP China 2018―Enter the Era of Intelligent Printing―aims to lead the trend and facilitate the realization of the plan.
