South Korean converter Youngshin P&L, located in the new industrial zone in the Hanam city of Gyeong-gi province South Korea, has installed a Nilpeter FA-17, which marks the purchase of its first flexo press.

With nine letterpress machines, Youngshin is a well-established converter serving many premium brands in FMCG, food, beverage, and cosmetics markets.

‘We were able to run our first production on the FA-Line within six weeks of arrival on site, which by far exceeded our expectations,’ commented Lee Seung Hyun, managing director of Youngshin P&L. ‘In further anticipation of replacing many of our aging letterpress machines, we are now looking into buying a second FA-Line, which will take us into the future as one of South-Korea’s flexo pioneers.’

According to Nilpeter, the FA-Line, built around the modern printing operator, with an intuitive user-interface and fully mobile print controls, provides stability, tight register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper. The FA-Line features Nilpeter’s lightweight, easy-load sleeves for reduced setup times, easy handling, increased production speeds, higher printing quality, and durability.

‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank Nilpeter and its world-class team for assisting us in every manner possible, to enable our business to make a smooth transition from letterpress to flexo. It has been truly impressive,’ concluded Seung Hyun.
