Italian converter Rifa Etichette has added a Nilpeter FA-17 press to its 10-line production floor to further expand the production capacity.
Rifa has manufactured self-adhesive labels since 1972, serving various high-end label markets from wine and olive oil to cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemistry, and food.
The 8-colour FA-17 installed in Italy includes quick-change die-cutting, cross-over unit for multi-layer label capabilities, cold foil, de- and re-lamination, UV-lamination, and more.
‘We are very pleased with our new Nilpeter press. The best solution for each graphic project is only possible with technology that is up to par, and the new FA-17 exceeds our expectations every day,’ commented Rinaldo Fanchin, CEO of Rifa Etichette. ‘It is extremely easy to operate, so my printers are happy, and the quality is second-to-none. This will no doubt help us provide customized, precise, and flawless products to our customers.’
‘The new Nilpeter FA-17 will join our ten other production lines. For this new investment, we have chosen Nilpeter, as we did in 2019 with the purchase of an MO-4. We are very pleased with the stability and the quality of Nilpeter’s presses, and with the excellent technical support provided by Nilpeter Italia,’ added Alessio Fanchin, product manager for Rifa Etichette.
‘Despite all of the challenges presented by Covid-19, we have conducted both remote and in-person meetings, tests, and training, of course, adhering to all public health guidelines,’ said Angelo Tribocco, sales manager at Nilpeter. ‘Installation was a success, and I’m delighted to continue our partnership with Rifa, helping them produce the most beautiful, high-quality labels.’
‘After seeing so many new presses launched by Nilpeter in my 36-year career, I’m inclined to say the new FA provides the most exciting experience - even our engineers love to install it, kind of a “plug, play & fly” solution. Printers and owners smile from ear to ear after the first weeks of production,’ concludes Tribocco.
