In addition to increased capacity, the FA-4* adds in-line flatbed foiling and embossing with the FP-4 and QC-Die value-adding units, a big factor for Miguel Alemao, CEO of Cork Supply Australia & Studio Labels.
“Flatbed systems are commonplace nowadays, but more frequent on offset presses or offline finishing lines. You don’t see many fitted on new, top of the range flexo presses – I dare to say none in Australia. Combining a state-of-the-art flexo press with an FP-system will allow us to compete in the short run, highly embellished space typically associated with digital printing,” says Alemao.
He goes on to praise Nilpeter’s customer service during the acquisition. “The whole commercial process was excellent – they did a terrific job, ticking all the right boxes. We expect and hope for that to continue.”
