The equipment has capability to print and convert with diverse print and converting technologies. The 430mm wide press features 10 colour Flexographic printing stations, Rotogravure printing station and Hot Foiling etc. with Converting section for Cartons, Labels, Flexible Packaging and Lami-tubes etc. It has capability to handle from 12mic films to 600mic board and also has fully automatic registration control.
