About us

Who we are

Our mission is to deliver highly innovative solutions for the flexographic industry. We strive to save costs, while increasing efficiency for our customers.

We believe it is possible to prevent all prepress-related downtime, while at the same time increase prepress department’s efficiency and overall productivity. We achieve this by digitalizing traditional workflows and continuously improving on existing equipment with advanced technology and inventing new equipment.

By being a customer-oriented company, our machines are made for our customers, by our customers.
