Gujarat, India-based converter Novelty Creations has invested in an 8-color Nilpeter FB3300 press as the offset printer looks to diversify into roll-to-roll label production.
Baby Joseph of Novelty Creations said: ‘We are an offset label printer and print high volume jobs from 50,000 to 100,000 labels for the agrochemical industry, and we cater to pharmaceutical industry as well.
‘We felt the need to convert labels in roll-to-roll form so have opted for a UV flexo press with value-added features such as cold foil, delam/relam and turnbar, among others. This will not only speed up production but also will give high quality labels to our customers.’
‘It is a modular machine and any unit can be retrofitted to it according to the customer’s requirement,’ said Manish Kapoor, country head of sales at Nilpeter India.
Novelty Creations will soon open a new factory for its flexo business in Ankleshwar, Gujarat. The company is also evaluating slitting, rewinding and inspection systems at Labelexpo India.
Of the response received at the show, Kapoor added: ‘We have seen people from Bangladesh, Rajkot, Kochi and Sri Lanka who we met at roadshows and who have visited Labelexpo India this time. We are pleased with the response received here this year.’
