Italian adhesive label specialist Nuceria Adesivi installs twelfth PRATI JUPITER labels inspection machine

Nuceria Adesivi Group, one of Italy’s leading packaging companies, has boosted its label quality control after installing the PRATI JUPITER TC280 inspection and finishing machine. This latest installation means the Group now uses 12 PRATI inspection and finishing systems at its three production sites.
Nuceria Adesivi employs 150 staff and specializes in self-adhesive labels, wateradhesive
labels, and folding cartons and boxes.

Quality control on a wide range of materials
The JUPITER TC280 ensures a top-quality finished product. It can handle a wide
range of materials at high speed, including self-adhesive labels, flexible packaging, cardboard, laminates, multi-page labels and other sensitive materials.
Outstanding label quality is guaranteed by the VARYCONTROL program, which
offers total control for managing three different types of rewinding tension:
constant on the axis for self-adhesive labels, constant on the web for flexible
materials, and mixed for special jobs.
"The quality control afforded by PRATI inspection machines is very impressive,"
says Guido Iannone, Plant Manager at Nuceria Adesivi’s San Giuliano Milanese
site. "They’re also extremely easy to use and very reliable – which is essential for
an operation as busy as ours. Plus the low maintenance costs mean we’ll see a
faster return on our investment. Another important aspect for us is that the
different models of PRATI inspection machines have very similar user interfaces.
This means it’s no problem to move operators to different machines when
