Netpack Italy adds Nilpeter FA-Line press

Netpack, a part of Sorma Group, has acquired a Nilpeter FA-Line for the company facility in Cesena, Italy.

“The new press has considerably exceeded our expectations. We have introduced a lean process for job-change, which has resulted in a remarkable reduction of waste and time spent. The new generation UV-lamp has added efficiency and reduced our power consumption, limiting emissions, which is part of our company policy," says Giorgini Mariano, production mgr.-Netpack Italy.

"The operators working on our new FA-Line have really appreciated the reduction of moving parts, the need for cleaning, and all the lightweight components, so our printers are quite excited. Only a few weeks after commissioning we are running at production speeds double that of our Nilpeter FB-3300 and FA-3300,“ he concludes.

Built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user-interface and fully mobile print controls, the Nilpeter FA-Line provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates: All normal self-adhesive materials, including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper. The FA features Nilpeter’s lightweight, easy-load sleeves for reduced setup times, easy handling, increased production speeds, higher printing quality, and impressive durability, not to mention a lower cost per label.

Besides great appreciation for the quality and stability of the press, Netpack has built a new lean converting setup around the press, which has greatly improved performance. The high level of automation, and the average speed of the press, has required a re-organization of cliché and paper feeding to satisfy the new equipment.
