Accuracy better than 2/100 of a mm...
Punch system – shorter down period – shortens your set-up time
To ensure a quick setup time on your screen machines we have invented and built an automatic punching system, which gives you 100% register. All your printing machine settings and pin/hole details are stored in our IT workflow. This gives you perfect fit again and again from job to job.

Are you in the process of launching a new product
The design and print quality of your packaging play a role to generate higher sales.
Are you launching a new product, then give it that extra sharp look it deserves in order to catch the eyes of the consumers. This can be essential for the success, especially if you are launching the product at an expensive Pay-4-Space area at the stores and shopping centers.
Packaging containers for such products as e.g. cosmetics, food, juices and beverages, paint, cleaning utilities – in all aluminium cans and plastic cups and buckets.
Regardless of what you produce – from cosmetics, dairy products, paint, cleaning products to beverages like juice, soda even wine or beer – the design and print quality of your packaging play a role in generating higher sales.

Minimizing the color contamination
Did you know that when you are using our printing plates it saves you up to 25% ink?
Jørgen Windelev A/S has invented and continuously further developed and refined a unique product to enable printing of complex High Quality Illustrated Designs – HQID – work on aluminum cans, plastic cups, tubes, buckets and other packaging containers for the consumer market. This quality print will make your product stand out from the crowd!
The idea originally sprung from the need to solve the problem of contamination at the decorator and ink station for 2 piece can printing and at the printing machine for tubes, cups and buckets. That became a succes immediately.
To ensure the technology always provides the latest available functionalities and meets the customers expectations, the major packaging manufacturers have always been consulted when developing new processes or techniques.
