Nilpeter FA-26

Chromatic Labels has purchased a new 8-color Nilpeter FA-26 to improve response times and offer new solutions to existing and new customers. Additionally, the company has moved into a new 35,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility.

The FA-26 is the latest and widest flexo press Nilpeter has ever developed. Designed to print with water-based and solvent inks, with UV, LED, and E-beam processes - in any combination, the FA-26 is a new press for short run flexible packaging.

The FA-26 is fully sleeve-based, both for anilox and plate rollers, with a closed ink chamber system. According to the company, this construction, combined with the new landscape design, ensures high-quality printing and unique production performance.

‘We are very excited with the purchase of this new state-of-the-art, mid-web flexographic press, which is scheduled to be up-and-running by the end of August,’ said Mark Gaw, vice president and general manager of Chromatic Labels.

The FA-26 will enable us to improve our response times on existing business as well as offer new solutions,’ he continued. ‘The purchase of the new equipment required more space, so we have moved into an impressive, new 35,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility half a mile from our previous location.’

‘We appreciate our long relationships with all of our customers and suppliers and expect these relationships to improve, as we have better resources to support everyone,’ he concluded.

‘By investing in the new FA-26, Chromatic has put themselves on the leading edge of manufacturing capabilities for flexible packaging,’ said John Crammer, sales consultant, Nilpeter USA.

‘The FA-26 was designed from the ground up for quick-change and high-speed capabilities with in-line lamination. With top speeds of 820 feet per minute, and 2-3 minute print station changeovers, this truly is a game-changer for the mid-web market,’ he continued.

‘With a full 26" web width, this addition to Chromatic’s Nilpeter-based platform gives them the ability to significantly expand their offerings to their customer base. We, at Nilpeter, appreciate the trust Chromatic has put in us in choosing their printing partner,’ Crammer concluded.
