    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 KRONES all-around package also comprises setting up 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 in the line and during the production process and is adjusted within seconds to the new artwork.

    High OEE at small batches

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