We work with the latest versions of software and hardware available in the market, and an innovative color engine that manages the color of each printing line, guaranteeing the color requested by the customer and certifying the same quality in different runs. We have software that can calculate the distortions of any type of metal, regardless of thickness or hardness, for optimum pre-distortion. This tool is generally used to print two-piece containers or lids. We have the capability as well of developing and delivering a 3D PDF file of the Product to our customers.
