The company Sächsische Walzengravur (SWG), based in Frankenberg, Saxony, is now officially one of the users of the HD-Gravure quality standard from Hell Gravure Systems. In it, both hardware and software are optimally matched to each other in order to, for example, bring out even finer motif details and the smallest lettering even better.
This also documents SWEG’s continuous investment in state-of-the-art technologies, which are constantly being further developed in the company’s own R&D department as well as in cooperation with suppliers. Therefore, the award of the certificate thus reflects a level of quality that has been achieved by the company for some time.
