Over 140 visitors were shown three of the most sophisticated narrow-web flexo presses available. New and emerging trends were displayed, discussed, and demonstrated.
On first base the FB-3300 showed visitors a multi-web Extended Content Label application.
Visitors on second base had the opportunity to see the FB-3 running two Expanded Gamut Printing samples showing the full fixed pallet application and the total job save and recall automation of the press.
On third base was the highly evolved, fully automated FA-4*, running wine and spirit labels with full flatbed processing of hot foil and embossing.
We also announced the release of our new PANORAMA product line of digital solutions. Available first quarter 2016 in North America, the combined DP-3 digital press and complete converting solution will be coming to the Nilpeter Technology Center in Cincinnati.
The day was full of Nilpeter’s Clean-Hand Technology solutions for tomorrow’s generation of packaging professionals.
On November 12, Nilpeter USA held a Bases Loaded Open House to showcase the newly renovated Technology Center.
Keynote Speaker, Dr. Charles "Chip" Tonkin, provided an in depth review of The Future of Packaging Design with a deeper look at the consumer research being done to identify with packaging trends, packaging life cycle, and sustainability concerns, and rounding home with a look into the future of functional printing and printed electronics. All key indicators of the new and emerging trends of tomorrow’s packaging.
Nilpeter also proudly announced our commitment to this ongoing educational endeavor. In the first quarter of 2016, Nilpeter will be placing a completely outfitted FB-3 13-inch fully automated servo press at Clemson University Graphics Communication Center. This press will allow a new generation of packaging innovators to research and create dynamic packaging solutions for the future. A generation raised on disruptive technologies will now have a Nilpeter Clean-Hand Technology press to engage and grow our industry at every level. We could not be more pleased to announce this collaboration with Clemson University.
Nilpeter would like to thank all our customers and partners who made this a very special and rewarding event, it was a walk off home run in every sense!
