Nilpeter to Introduce Two Flexo Presses at LabelExpo
Nilpeter’s new FB-3 flexo press for high performance production is based on a completely new ground-up platform.
The PMC on Nilpeter’s feature-rich FA-4* flexo press is augmented by the Air Control Satellite (ACS) for wireless press operation.
'NEXT—Your Challenge—Our Commitment' is the overall theme of Nilpeter's stand.
SLAGELSE, DENMARK—July 15, 2013—’NEXT—Your Challenge—Our Commitment’ is the overall theme on Nilpeter‘s two adjoining stands, occupying 600 square meters at LabelExpo Europe 2013, held in Brussels September 24-27. With its customary focus on innovation, the Danish press manufacturer will introduce two new flexo presses for the first time at a European event. The FB-3 and FA-4* occupy two distinct niches and are based on new ground-up platforms. They include many innovative features designed to optimize production and maximize users’ investments, with the accent on adding value to premium-quality labels. Press demonstrations will feature the production of value-added self-adhesive labels for the wines and spirits, food and health and beauty sectors.
Adding value is a major feature of two other exhibits: The new FP-4 flatbed hot foil and embossing system for flexible in-line production; also the G-4 in-line gravure unit for printing value-adding metallic inks and other coatings on Nilpeter presses.

NEW in Europe: The High Performance FB-3
Nilpeter’s FB-3 flexo press is one of the fastest label presses on the market. It delivers a top speed of 228 m/min. (750 ft/min.) with no compromises to print quality on webs up to 350 mm (13.75 in) wide. Although a high-performance press, the FB-3 remains competitive over a wide range of run lengths, including short runs. For example, the short web path allows fast job changeovers with minimum start-up waste. Each of the ergonomically-designed printing units include five servo systems to automate all adjustments for saving, loading and changing jobs, as well as for job pre-setting, impression settings, and side register load. A dual axis servo transport system ensures high levels of print reproduction and precise registration.
Standard equipment includes Nilpeter’s Press Management Center (PMC) giving central control over press functions. It is augmented by the Air Control Satellite (ACS) for wireless press operation, and Nilpeter’s Automatic Plate Positioning Systems (APPS). The press runs with either hot air dryers or inter-deck UV-curing lamp units. Other options include freely-positioned units for rotary UV-screen, as well as hot and cold foil.
