Wisconsin-based Inland Packaging has installed a new Nilpeter FA-17 to increase capacity and expand product lines in label and flexible packaging production for a variety of markets, including household, food, beverage, health and wellness.
Nilpeter FA-17 provides printing on multiple substrates such as all normal self-adhesive materials, including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper.
Chad Nellis, process and technology manager, Inland Packaging, said: ‘We had an excellent factory acceptance test with Nilpeter’s demo team. The press held register very accurately, and we were able to push the limits on speed. This is transferring well to the production floor.’
Mike Skroch, vice president operations, added: ‘We appreciate the partnership and Nilpeter’s ability to continue to make their equipment more operator-friendly in today’s tight market.’
Walt Mesik, senior sales consultant, Nilpeter USA, said that when Inland Packaging started investigating new equipment to optimize its production demands, the focus was to achieve maximum efficiency and machine uptime. ‘The automation and quick-change features built into every Nilpeter FA-Line provided the foundation to meet all the Inland Packaging objectives. We look forward to a bright future with Inland Packaging as our printing partner.’
