Complementary technologies.

At Essentra Packaging, we have the best offset technology of the market. Moreover, to have a better understanding of the needs of each client, we have digital printing technology within our large variety of equipment. This technology complements traditional offset printing, encouraging more creative packaging production, smaller batches, and designs that change frequently.

Technical aspects.

  • Half sheet (50×70)
  • Flexibility for small batches
  • Waste reduction

Advantages of combining offset and digital technologies

  • Optimisation of resources in short runs and high productivity in large batches.
  • Use of both technologies to deal with the demands of different markets.
  • Production flexibility, improves to meet different requirements.
  • Optimisation of production waste, contributes to fulfil sustainability objectives.
  • Offset printing provides the application of different anti-counterfeiting measures: invisible inks, reactive inks, special inks, etc.
