    Our CUBIC PRINTING and E-CUBIC are three-dimensional decoration technologies, by floating special films with a diverse range of designs on top of water and applying printing to target objects using water pressure.
    These technologies can handle a wide range of materials and complex shapes. These versatilities make it possible to be used in a wide range of applications for automobiles, electric appliances, mobile phones, interior decorations and more.
    *CUBIC PRINTING: A pioneering three-dimensional decoration technology developed by Taica Corporation. Through our network of approximately 80 partners processing plants in over 20 countries, we support global procurement of leading companies both in Japan and abroad.

    *E-CUBIC: A new three-dimensional decoration technology. This brings three dimensional effects by making appearance of wood pattern more real or adding texture along the geometric patterns.
