With its unique customized configuration, the servo-driven press offers optimized job changeover times, minimized material waste and outstanding print quality.

With the expansion, we will be able to offer lottery and gaming operators the latest technologies, improved flexibility in production scheduling and a wider variety of products, to help support their sales growth.”
