Thanks to our advanced printing equipment, alcohol is no longer needed for basic processing. Our alcohol-free ink has a thicker consistency, which prevents splattering during printing. It also dries considerably quicker. This not only helps the environment and our employees, but also optimises turnover times for your print orders.
The ink we use for printing replaces mineral oil with other raw materials such as plant oils. These are more biodegradable and provide the same high-quality print results. Also, we store our inks exclusively in large-volume containers to reduce waste.
We use a collective print process. Multiple orders are arranged on sheets of paper in such a way as to ensure that as little paper as possible remains unused. Thanks to our modern equipment, we also use 50% fewer print sheets to set up the print process than with conventional printing machines. Our high quality standards in our production processes help us to avoid rejects and production surpluses. Unavoidable waste is collected in large containers and then recycled.
Every SAXOPRINT employee is committed to reducing consumption of paper, water and fuel. We have reduced our energy consumption by using energy-efficient equipment, modern lighting and making the most of waste heat from our machines to heat the production facilities. SAXOPRINT is also committed to environmental protection outside of its production halls, providing employees with subsidised tickets for local public transportation.
