Quadpack Impressions has been upgraded with a brand new decorating line. The installation offers high-precision screen printing and hot-stamping on glass bottles, as well as other materials. The plant now offers a complete, Europe-based decoration service for all types of beauty packaging.

"Glass needs careful treatment to obtain optimal results," said Ernesto Cara, head of Quadpack's Manufacturing Division. "Our new line is finely calibrated to deal with the characteristics of this particular material."

The production line consists of a pre-treatment station, a one-colour screen-printing machine, a UV oven, a hot-stamping machine and an infra-red drying tunnel. Both the screen printing and thermal printing machines are CNC-driven, which enables decoration of not only cylindrical packs, but also ovals and other shapes.

Quadpack Impressions' glass decorating line has a production capacity of 2,000 units per hour, or 10m units a year for screen and thermal printing, depending on the size and shape of the item.

Louvrette one year on: a successful journey

What happens when German engineering excellence meets creativity born in Barcelona? A raft of innovative solutions, developed, produced and delivered in a way that’s sustainable, creative and efficient. That is just one of the outcomes of the rare but successful ‘marriage’ between German manufacturer Louvrette and Quadpack. A lot has happened in the year since the acquisition, which pushed Quadpack into the Top 10 of European beauty packaging providers.

As Sustainability and Innovation are key priorities for Quadpack and the global consumer market, the organisation feels the responsibility to work with supply partners from all regions to establish a new way of doing business, where collaboration is the new competition.
