    Calvo can assure that it’s the best machine you can buy for lidding. It’s a good investmemt because you can take advantages of the machine from the beginning. It’s really efficient. By the way, if there’s any problem you are in touch with the technicians and the electricians by remote control and it’s very easy to solve everything by the screen. The attention from Berhalter people is fantastic and we’re very happy with our B350.
