Green-Label Adds Second Nilpeter FA-17
Long-time Nilpeter customer, Green-Label of Aarhus, Denmark, has acquired a second Nilpeter FA-17, adding capacity in order to meet increasing customer demands. Nilpeter is pleased to continue the great, long-standing relationship with Green-Label.
Green-Label’s new 8-colour FA-17 features the added registration and film application packages, a rail system for value-adding options, soft-tension unwind and UV-lamination, and more. The FA-Line offers easy press operation for both flexible packaging and label jobs, with quick job setup and changeovers. The press is scheduled for installation in the third quarter of 2020.
Tailored for Quick Turnarounds
“The new press is tailored for quick turnarounds, and a perfect fit for the majority of our orders; 6-7-8 colours with lamination, setup, go. Changing from one six-colour job to another typically takes around 15 minutes – that’s as fast, if not faster, than on our smaller machines. That’s why we bought it, and we’re positive it will add to our flexibility and competitiveness,” says co-owner of Green-Label, Claus Grønning.
“We’ve seen the reliability of the FA-17 first hand, and the limited need for service. Colour change, sleeve change etc. is very easy, the user friendliness is way up there, and the print quality is second-to-none. And obviously, having all the sleeves, dies, and tooling from the first press is an added bonus,” he continues.
“This latest press installation makes five in total from the popular FA-Line program at Green-Label, and we are very pleased to continue the great, long-standing relationship. In the past three months we have sold three FA-Line presses to three Danish label printers, who have all experienced decent growth in spite of recent COVID-19 challenges,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.
Green-Label’s First Nilpeter FA-17
The first FA-17, installed in August 2017, hit the ground running with a crisp-bag collaboration between specialists in pre-press, material, press, inks, and curing. The result was on display at LabelExpo Europe 2017. This press has since been fitted with a cross-over unit and lamination tower, among other equipment upgrades, to better serve customers with more advanced, high specialty jobs and projects.
