ABG's finishing solutions enable Nordvalls to increase productivity

Leading finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG), has installed advanced finishing solutions at Nordvalls, Scandinavia's top label supplier, with further solutions now agreed. The move has enabled Nordvalls to meet the increasing demands of digital printing with unparalleled efficiency and speed.

With a long-standing reputation for excellence in the label manufacturing industry, Nordvalls offers a wide range of adhesive labels, including innovative multi-coloured and speciality labels. In response to the installation of an HP Indigo V12 Digital Press in late 2023, Nordvalls sought to enhance its production line to keep pace with the output of this advanced printing press.

This enhancement involved the purchase of ABG's Non-Stop Unwinder and Rewinder systems. Designed in partnership with HP, the systems integrate seamlessly with the HP Indigo V12 Digital Press, featuring state-of-the-art guarding and unparalleled tension control. This setup not only complements the press’s capabilities but also helps increase overall productivity by maintaining continuous operation.

Building on this success, Nordvalls also invested in ABG's flagship Digicon Series 3 with Turret Rewinder. This finishing solution transforms printed rolls into finished products with exceptional speed and precision. The inclusion of ABG’s patented fast-track die, which now reaches speeds of up to 180 meters per minute (semi-rotary), marks a significant advancement in the efficiency of label production.

After the recent triumph of Drupa, the top exhibition for printing technologies, Nordvalls invested in a second HP Indigo V12 Digital Press. This then led to a purchase of another Non-Stop Unwinder and Rewinder from ABG, as well as another Digicon Series 3, allowing Nordvalls to take their production capacity to the next level. This showcases the position of ABG as market leaders, within the finishing industry worldwide.

Matt Burton, global sales director at ABG, said: “We are dedicated to developing cutting-edge solutions that address the evolving needs of digital printing. Our collaboration with Nordvalls exemplifies this commitment, as we continue to focus on enhancing our technologies to support our customers’ growth and success.”

“We have had a strong working relationship with ABG both in England and Sweden for many years,” added Patrik Jenemark, managing director at Nordvalls.  “They understand our needs and we strongly believe their product offering is not just innovative but also suits our production requirements now and for the future.”

ABG remains at the forefront of the digital printing industry, consistently innovating and adapting to meet the challenges of a dynamic market. The partnership with Nordvalls highlights its role as a key player in the global printing landscape, driving the industry forward with technology and creativity.
