Danish converter Green-Label has acquired a second Nilpeter FA-17 to increase its production capacity and meet increasing customer demand. The press is scheduled for installation in the third quarter of 2020.
Green-Label’s new 8-color 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 new press is tailored for quick turnarounds, and a perfect fit for the majority of our orders; from six to 8-colors with lamination. Changing from one 6-color 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,’ said Claus Grønning, co-owner of Green-Label.
‘We’ve seen the reliability of the FA-17 firsthand, and the limited need for service. Color change and sleeve changes are very easy, the user friendliness is outstanding, 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,’ concluded Claus Grønning.
‘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 a decent growth in spite of recent Covid-19 challenges,’ added Jesper Jørgensen, global sales manager at Nilpeter.
