Inkas has invested in a 9-color FA-17 from Nilpeter to improve quality and expand its production capabilities. This is the first press of its kind to be installed in Kazakhstan.
Inkas was founded in 2002 and has since established itself as one of the leading printing companies in Kazakhstan, cooperating with the companies at home and abroad in the market for flexible packaging of food and non-food products.
‘We have more than 140 employees with a lot of practical experience, operate 24-hours a day, and print all kinds of jobs - food, pharmacy, textile or household chemicals,’ said Ivan Pivovarov, director of Inkas. ‘More than 5,000 customers from Kazakhstan and other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries trust us, and we work hard to bring happiness to them, as well as the people who use goods packed with our labels and flexible packaging.
‘We’re striving to improve quality, expand our product range, and remain leaders in our industry. The market keeps moving, and we received requests for products that could not be produced on our existing equipment, with queues building, negatively affecting deadlines.’
The 9-colour FA-17 installed at Inkas is fitted with Nilpeter’s Advanced Automation, Registration, and Film Application Packages and completed with features such as UV-curing and cooling technology, rail system, turn bar for filmic material, de- and re-lamination equipment, UV-lamination, rotary die-cutting with GAP-master, an embossing cassette, back-side slitting for edge trimming, automatic matrix removal, video inspection, and more.
‘The FA-Line’s optimal price-to-quality ratio, and a good selection of additional options, were decisive factors. With the new Nilpeter flexo printing press, we plan to produce new types of products that we could not produce before, and we hope the business will grow rapidly,’ added Pivovarov.
‘Nilpeter is delighted and highly appreciative that Inkas has decided to invest in our FA-17, which, as stated earlier, is the first of its kind in Kazakhstan. Inkas is a very important player in the market, and we are proud to announce the cooperation between our companies. The project was established in October 2019 and was spearheaded by our new agent for Russia and CIS, Prima Scelta,’ added Dan Wissing, area sales manager at Nilpeter.
