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.
