Nilpeter’s representative in the Spanish region, Barcelona-based Esagraf, held an Open House event on 23rd-27th March with a focus on high-productivity narrow-web flexo printing and finishing of adhesive labels and films in a LEAN environment. More than 150 printers attended the 5-day-event.
The live demonstrations showcased two of Nilpeter’s flagship presses: The FA-4* and the FB-3, as well as equipment by Prati, GM, Nikka, and Flexowash.
”It has been an intense week with more than 150 visitors from 74 label companies coming into our house”, says Director of Esagraf Eduardo Sa. ”The FA-4* and the FB-3 have run perfectly, and the demos impressed the customers, so we are nothing but satisfied”, Eduardo Sa concludes.
The demonstration of the sleeve-based FA-4* for producing high quality labels and flexible packaging featured a changeover from a 6- and 5-colour job in less than three minutes, with less than 30 meters of waste. The 5-colour wine job featured two hot foils printed by Nilpeter’s inline flatbed unit for value-adding hot foil and embossing, the FP-4.
The visitors witnessed a fast changeover and a speed test on the FB-3, which is one of the fastest in its class. The FB-3 proved its high consistency, as it went from 0-180 m/min. and stopping without any movement in register.
