Nilpeter showcased their all new FA flexo press at the LabelExpo Europe at thier booth.
According to the Shyam Babu, director of Nilpeter ME, “The new FA is the most versatile flexo press on the market – designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs, and built around the modern press operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls.”
He further added about the features, “The FA provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates. Based on Nilpeter’s Clean-Hand design approach, the FA ensures clean hands during press operation, with a minimum of hands-on press interaction; all data is saved, jobs are easily recalled, and the press will auto register. Last but not least, the new FA allows printers to enhance the performance and capability of their press with Value-Adding Units as well as Application and Automation Packages, according to application needs and budget.”
Babu explains about their product display at their booth, “The 8-colour 17” FA modular flexo press with Quick-Change Die, Lamination Towers, Turnbar, and the Nilpeter Cross-Over Unit ran two Demo Jobs on PP White at LabelExpo Europe 2017, both with the same setup and colour sequence; CMYK, K2, PANTONE 485, silver, and varnish. Nilpeter demonstrated a complete 8-colour job-change, including change of die, in less than 3 minutes.”
Prior to LabelExpo, two customers had already installed the first new FA-presses in their production halls. The very first customer installation of the new FA took place at Cograf Etichette just outside of Torino, Italy, in the last week of June, 2017. Secondly, the Aarhus-based printer Green-Label has installed the new FA at its production facilities in mid-August.
According to Nilpeter ME, the FA flexo press can be seen at their Technology centres. Also, samples can be arranged to customers on their request.
The FA flexo press comes as two variants, one with 17” and other with 14” for the customer requirements.
