Three Nilpeter presses are making their US debuts at Labelexpo Americas 2018

On its stand, the press manufacturer shows the new FA and the Panorama Hybrid press, while the new FB-350 is on display at the Kurz booth. Nilpeter’s new offerings are said to be ideally suited to the next generation of printers, and the needs of Industry 4.0, thanks to their automating of almost all processes.

The new FA, for example, offers complete clean-hand operation from wireless tablets, hand held or positioned anywhere on the front of the machine. All new machines offer total job store and recall, completely automated controls and full connectivity.

The FA is the latest addition to Nilpeter’s flexo program. The FA provides ‘a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates,’ says the company.

Nilpeter’s digital product line, Panorama, covers a wide spectrum of customer requirements – from stand-alone to hybrid configurations. The Panorama Hybrid on display features a 5-color inkjet print engine, UV lamination and a semi-rotary die station.

The FB-350, on the Kurz stand, is packed with new features, such as Automated Plate Positioning System (APPS), pre-register and re-register functionality, in a new design. The press on display features both hot foil and the new DM-Liner UV-Iink Roll-to-Roll Built-on unit from Kurz.

Paul Teachout, VP sales and marketing, Nilpeter USA, said: ‘With three new products on display, saying we’re excited would be an understatement. We’re triple excited! The all new FA will be making its North American debut after a very successful launch in Brussels last year. It will be running the award-winning Bellissima DMS technology in expanded gamut. We will also debut the new Panorama UV inkjet digital hybrid solution with Nilpeter’s own semi-rotary die station.

‘Last but not least, we will debut the new FB-350, the latest generation of our workhorse FB-Line, on the Kurz booth. Kurz will present their new DM-Liner UV-Iink Roll-to-Roll Built-on unit on the FB-350, showing just how flexible this press is in adapting the latest UV inkjet offerings.

Nilpeter will run live press demonstrations throughout Labelexpo Americas 2018, every hour on the hour from 10am to 4pm. Tuesday and Thursday are dedicated to labels, while Wednesday is dedicated to shrink sleeves.
