      Benefits to you

      Innovative packaging for your products

      Contrary to conventional labels, the targeted application of the direct print grooved and relief structures is possible. This provides entirely new chances for consumer products which make them stand out from the mass of competitive products.

      Large decoration surface

      Even with very complex designs, the printing height of 205 millimetres leaves much space for a lot of text information on the packaging.

      Easy start

      In addition to machine and colour, the Dekron all-around package also includes set-up of the entire work flow on site. This way, you can use the new technology immediately and profitably –at the push of a button and in all its facets.

      Less logistics, more flexibility

      No labels, no stock keeping: DecoType Select creates the decoration directly at the line, and during the production process it is adjusted within seconds to the new artwork.

      High OEE at small batches

      Due to just-in-time production of the artwork, small batches can be produced flexibly and economically –for example, for testing different design variants on the market or to individualise your packaging.
