Our company participated in ERA Packaging and Decorative Conference that took place in Novara ,Italy last November .After the presentation of our innovative cylinder concept ‘Light Aluminum Cylinders ‘ we have been awarded with an Innovation Prize.
As aluminium is significantly lighter than steel – the traditional material for gravure cylinders – the weight of the standard cylinder for packaging gravure with a web width of 1,20 m is reduced to below 20 kg, allowing shipment to the customers by conventional parcel services.
