Curved image overlay positioning technology improves positioning accuracy, combined with smart pattern design, to produce exquisite customized shoes.
With the rapid development of Internet technology and digital media, the printing market has been consolidated and packaging printing and industrial printing have become key sectors for the transformation by printing companies. Now, with the support of smart technology and digital printing, cross-domain printing has been uplifted to the new heights.

Since 2021, Industrial Development Administration has promoted the Printing Technology Research Institute (referred to as PTRI) to establish the "Advanced Graphic Design Application Center" to develop intelligent high-end graphic image processing and application technology. By means of integrating the common technical guidance required in cross-industry domains such as design, intelligent image processing, and pre-press processing, the IDC significantly promotes product innovation and quality upgrading. In 2022, PTRI applied this technology to assist Make Sense Co., Ltd. (image design), INKSUN Co., Ltd. (printing), and JipinIndustrial Co., Ltd. (interior decoration) to upgrade "Intelligent Image Processing and Reproduction Technology for Painted Transparent Building Materials Alliance. Compared with the stained glass on the market currently, which has monotonous images and is mostly printed in a combination of single colors, the alliance has introduced intelligent image processing technology that can quickly produce rich imitation natural materials, and applied mask processing to achieve the visual effect of gradual light transmission. Finally, combined with digital full-color direct inkjet technology increases the added value of building materials and glass products, and connected upstream and downstream partnerships from design, printing , decoration and construction to create diversified interior decoration design options, which is expected to increase the turnover of alliance members by 30 million TWD and beyond.

In addition, with the rapid development of digital printing technology, the customized market has become mainstream. In order to meet the diverse surface decoration needs of consumers, production technology is gradually moving towards semi-finished products/finished products for printing and reprocessing, targeting three-dimensional products, PTRI cooperates with Inkcom Technology Co., Ltd. to apply digital camera image positioning technology to directly perform color printing on warped surfaces. It is also equipped with smart pattern style conversion and online 3D design platform to provide customers with real-time product patterns. Design tools and apply technological progress to Travel Fox Co., Ltd. for customizing inkjet shoes. In the future, PTRI will constantly provide the related technology support to help printing companies to expand into high value-added customized boutique markets such as sports caps, T-shirts, bags, and canvas shoes.

The application of smart technology to printing-related industries is not limited to printing production, but also helps the industry develop a consistent creative service operation model from front-end design to back-end customized production, achieving a cross-domain multiplication effect. The Industry Development Administration will continue to promote the application of AI smart technology further to printing and processing, facilitate the printing industry turn around, strengthen manufacturing resilience and adaptability, and become a middle stand  in the manufacturing supply chain.
