ColorGATE Digital Output Solutions GmbH

Industrial Printing

In Industrial Printing the printing is merely one process in the overall production process that serves to decorate the goods produced.

The inkjet process is often used to apply an ink or another liquid to any kind or shape of image carrier, which is then decorated or to which new functions are added. The advantages include the small production lots right down to the batch size of “1” as well as the option of changing décor or print image without having to retrofit or convert the printing systems.

Customized products and packaging can be produced for specific target groups with no increase in costs. 

ColorGATE offers solutions for the following application areas:
