California-based Lotus Labels has invested in a new Nilpeter FA-17 press to expand its production capacity and meet increasing customer demands.
Lotus, established in 1992, specializes in made-to-order, pressure-sensitive labels. The company operates from over 42,000 sq ft production site offering up to 12 colors in-line printing capability on digital, letterpress, and flexo printing presses.
‘I’ve been in the label industry for over 30 years, bought many printing presses from different brands, and in my opinion, the Nilpeter press offers the most satisfying quality and production. On top of that, Nilpeter has very strong and professional technical support and service,’ said George Wu, president of Lotus Labels. ‘Fortunately, we haven’t been severely impacted by the pandemic, and instead, we have seen many business opportunities come our way. In that respect, the FA-17 meets all our requirements. It’s very easy to manage for our operators, most material can be converted on this press, the quality is good, and the speed is a real strength. In short, the FA-17 reinforces our business and our company goals.’
The FA-Line has been designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs and built around the modern operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls.
‘Lotus Labels considered all major brands before they chose our FA-17,’ said John Crammer, sales consultant for Nilpeter USA. ‘Now, they are seeing the payback in their decision. Nilpeter is proud to have Lotus Label as a member of our printing partner family. As a producer of many pressure-sensitive label substrates, they have increased their throughput dramatically with the 600 ft/min press speeds and 10-minute complete quick changeover capabilities of the FA-17. In addition, they can explore new flexible packaging markets with the ability to run unsupported films and flexible packaging substrates with the highest quality available for registration and color management. Thank you, Lotus Labels, for putting your trust in Nilpeter.’
