National Labels of Pennsylvania, USA, takes over its first MO-4 in Nilpeter A/S, Denmark

Growing business for National Labels in the high-end sector of value-added health & beauty labels made Nilpeter's introduction as the first sleeve-based narrow web combination offset press the dream come through. This led to the investment in the first MO-4 - and plans for more to come.

The new MO-4 was taken over after several days of production simulation on live commercial blue chip cosmetic labels – with an exceptional result. It will be the first MO-4 Nilpeter delivers to the American market.
Jim Shacklett, III, Chief Executive Officer, National Label Company, says, “The Nilpeter offset presses are vital to achieving our goals of increased quality, performance, and flexibility in today's competitive world. The new MO-4 allows us to improve our quality and reduce our waste of time, material, and set-up resources. The performance of the Nilpeter MO-3300 Servo is a benchmark in our industry; however, after intensive testing on our new MO-4, we are pleased to see further improved quality and productivity. We now look forward to implementing this new combination machine which will certainly increase our productivity.”
Lars Eriksen, Nilpeter President & CEO, adds, "I am very proud to have National Labels as our valued partner. The MO-4 is a strategic product for us – and I am sure that it will bring a lot of new business opportunities to both of our companies. There is so much new technology available – and we have focused on utilizing it for the benefit of the processes and the press operators. The main focus, however, has been on saving tooling costs, time, and waste aiming this new offset press at short as well as long runs.”
The new MO-4 is an integrated part of Nilpeter's Dream Concept and compatible with UV-flexo, UV-screen, UV and Solvent Gravure, hot foil, cold foil, CASLON UV-InkJet as well as numerous in-line converting principles. The major advantage to other combination offset solutions in the narrow web industry is the Easy-Load lightweight sleeve system that has replaced the old-fashioned cassettes. This has reduced setup time and waste considerably.
