The Norbert Schläfli machinery company based in Zofingen, Switzerland, was founded in 1985 and specialises in the development, design, manufacture and worldwide sales of special machinery for the printing industry. Their product range includes a great variety of printing and coating machines for test and production runs.
Norbert Schläfli and his team are known for the implementation of projects which nobody else has dared to tackle. “Start where others finish,” is the motto of the company. The participation in numerous international R&D projects focusing on functional printing underlines this claim. The company is embedded in a global network for this purpose. When it comes to utmost precision, the mechanical engineers from Zofingen are in great demand.
“The printing techniques have changed significantly during the past few years. Where a hundredth millimetre used to be the smallest unit, the limit now exceeds a thousandth and is approaching the nanometre range. Precision has thus increased by a multiple in all areas of functional printing. The printing precision, which is in the invisible range, is a daily challenge that fascinates us and exceeds the limit.”
