Manufacturing Process


For the production of self-adhesive labels, we uses various printing methods. In order to maintain high quality and durability, only UV-inks are used: 

Following machines are available:

  • UV-letterpress     
    (max. 3 colors, in one pass)
  • UV-flexo print     
    (max. 6 colors, in one pass)
  • UV-rotation screen printing    
    (max. 2 colors, in one pass)
  • Digital printing    
    (up to 4 colors in one pass) with TT- ribbon
  • Digital printing in offset quality  
    (up to 7 colors)


Multi colored labels can be produced with our special insetting process. These special inks increase the label’s resistance to aggressive medias and mechanical abrasion. For print-on-demand at the customer’s site, we incorporates thermal transfer printing. The quality of the thermal transfer print ultimately depends on the print system and ribbon quality. Thus, we uses only print systems and resin ribbons of the highest quality.
