NEra printers make a huge impression on the Chinese market
New Era Technology has made its way to China, and in a big way, with two companies now printing on Dip-Tech NEra printers – Hai Nan Wallkingdon Glass and Zhejiang Narking Glass, the latter with its second Dip-Tech printer.
With the huge impression it’s made (literally), Dip-Tech technology is quickly opening new horizons, with extended abilities and unprecedented opportunities for NEra printer owners and customers alike.
Wallkingdon debuts with digitally printed headquarters and a stunning showroom
Based in Haikou in the Hainan province of China, Wallkingdon specializes in glass processing, producing various types of glass and developing new energy-saving glass. The President of the company, Mr. Ho, first became interested in digital printed glass at the China Glass Expo in Beijing in 2013 when he saw Dip-Tech’s printer. He recalls that there and then, he made up his mind to invest in a digital printed glass production line. It took him a few years of preparation and unwavering confidence in the digital printed glass business to finally “achieve his dream” (yes, his actual words) by acquiring a latest generation NEra-D 460 printer from Dip-Tech at the Glasstec 2016 show. The NEra printer that was manufactured for Walkingdon was presented at China Glass in Beijing, May 2017, and right after the show, was delivered to Haikou.
With the acquisition of its Dip-Tech NEra printer, Wallkingdon began filling the gap in the glass processing industry chain throughout the Hainan province.
In addition to adopting digital glass printing, Wallkingdon built a new 36,000 sqm facility, with a factory area of 27,000 sqm housing the world’s most advanced machineries for glass production. To show-off the power and performance of digital glass printing, Walkingdon decided that the entire façade of its new building would be printed on glass using Dip-Tech technology, with a stunning glass showroom within. A challenging deadline was set for this project, with the goal of having the factory ready to host an event on September.
