“The new press has considerably exceeded our expectations. We have introduced a lean process for job-change, which has resulted in a remarkable reduction of waste and time spent. The new generation UV-lamp has added efficiency and reduced our power consumption, limiting emissions, which is part of our company policy," says Giorgini Mariano, Production Manager of Netpack Italy.

"The operators working on our new FA-Line have really appreciated the reduction of moving parts, the need for cleaning, and all the lightweight components, so our printers are quite excited. Only a few weeks after commissioning we are running at production speeds double that of our Nilpeter FB-3300 and FA-3300,“ he concludes.

Built Around the Modern Printing Operator
Built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user-interface and fully mobile print controls, the Nilpeter FA-Line provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates: All normal self-adhesive materials, including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper. The FA features Nilpeter’s lightweight, easy-load sleeves for reduced setup times, easy handling, increased production speeds, higher printing quality, and impressive durability, not to mention a lower cost per label.

Validating the Plug and Play Concept
"The installation at Netpack has once again validated the plug and play concept, which has almost gone “viral” among Italian label printers, when talking about the Nilpeter FA-Line," says Angelo Tribocco, Sales Manager, Nilpeter srl.

"Besides great appreciation for the quality and stability of the press, Netpack has built a new lean converting setup around the press, which has greatly improved performance. The high level of automation, and the average speed of the press, has required a re-organization of cliché and paper feeding to satisfy the new equipment," he concludes.

Netpack – A Part of Sorma Group
Netpack was founded in the late 1980’s and specializes in the production of flexible packaging in net and film. The entire production is carried out in-house; from graphic design and printing plates, to processing of raw materials, printing, and lamination. The company strives to provide eye-catching packaging, which can add value to customer products. Netpack is widely known for the Vertbag, which revolutionized the 90’s way of packaging fruit and vegetables, thanks to its wide space for advertisement and production information. To this day, the Vertbag is still one of the most sought-after forms of packaging by large-scale retail companies, in Italy and abroad. The experience accrued over the years, the high levels of technology, and the qualified team working closely with fruit and vegetables companies, has contributed to Netpack becoming a leader in this market sector.

Sorma Group was founded in 1973 and is currently the only group of companies in the world able to offer the entire line of machinery and technical material needed to automatically select, weigh, and package fruit and vegetables. Sorma Group offers more that 160 automatic machines, entirely developed by a team of 35 engineers, and protected by 60 patents. Sorma Group has offices in Spain, Germany, France, Turkey, The Netherlands, USA, and Brazil, with more than 40 specialized distributors operating globally.

Primoreels Purchases Second FA-17 After Devastating Fire
The renowned Danish dairy lidding manufacturer, Primoreels, is no stranger to Nilpeter, having acquired a 9-colour FA-17 in 2018. That press was, however, damaged in a devastating fire in September 2020, that affected much of Primoreels’ production and significantly reduced the company’s manufacturing capacity.

Through hard work and determination, not to mention the help of close partners and suppliers, the company is now back in full force and has invested in a new FA-17. During the restart, Primoreels purchased a refurbished Nilpeter FA-2500 to run production as quickly as possible after the fire.

A Remarkable Effort
“When your entire factory with production equipment, inventory, and development projects burns to the ground, it feels as if the rug is pulled out from under you,” Henrik Sahlberg, CEO, Primoreels A/S begins.

“Our contingency plan was, however, launched with full force on the day of the fire, so uncovering usable converting and printing machines in the market was initiated, spare stocks of raw materials were dispensed, and several different printing partners were immediately activated with preparation of clichés and converting tools,” he continues.

“The contingency plan was followed to the letter, which meant that all of Primoreels’ customers were kept running, and not a single one experienced production stoppage due to the fire. That is a remarkable effort, and something we can be proud of,” Henrik Sahlberg concludes.

Helping in a time of need
“Obviously, the fire was very, very unfortunate, but we are pleased that we were able to help Primoreels in a time of need, alongside our industry partners, and make sure they could sustain production during the rebuild. We’re very happy to continue the partnership, and expect great things now that Primoreels is 100% re-established,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.

Intuitive User-Interface
Built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user-interface and fully mobile print controls, the Nilpeter FA-17 provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates: All normal self-adhesive materials, including flexible packaging films, polymer films, metallic films, and paper.

The FA-17 features Nilpeter’s lightweight, easy-load sleeves for reduced setup times, easy handling, increased production speeds, higher printing quality, and impressive durability, not to mention a lower cost per label.

Smyth Invests in Three FA-Presses in Three Years
Partnership, performance, simple operation, and service are all reasons for Smyth advancing its relationship with Nilpeter.
nilpeter-expand
nilpeter-collapsed
Image collection:

Until 2019, Smyth Companies’ Minneapolis facility had eight narrow-web flexographic presses from four different press manufacturers. The label and flexible packaging converter was experiencing growth in short runs and anticipated more, so leadership had become focused on changeover time, speed, and throughput.

The company’s leadership and management teams recognize, how its old gear presses are cumbersome to change over, requiring skills in a sector that’s challenged with finding experienced operators. The automation built into new narrow-web presses was appealing both for operational advantages and operator usability.

Partnership & Performance
Ultimately, to be more competitive, it was time for Smyth to invest in new press technology. The team’s objective with their next press selection was to find a partner for their future development in Minneapolis. At the same time, Scott Fisher, President, Smyth Companies, envisioned a fleet of flexographic assets, that would meet any of Smyth’s customers’ extensive requirements. This strategy would also make it easier to train and move operators around the shop floor from press to press.

The first Nilpeter FA-Line, that Smyth installed, is a 17” flexographic 10-color press with laminating and cold foil capability. The focus on the first investment was to take work off of the other presses, to shorten changeover time, and to reduce waste. Smyth’s data has shown the team, that it can put thirty per cent more footage through the FA-Line, when compared to any other asset in their plant.

By 2020, Smyth installed its second Nilpeter FA-Line, also 17” wide, but with 12 flexo printing units and two screen units on a rail, each with its own curing system, plus cold foil and hot stamping units. In June of this year, the converter will install it’s third FA-Line, moving even closer to the leadership’s vision for its Minneapolis facility.

Jim Stark, General Manager, Smyth-Minneapolis, says, “Nilpeter has excelled in the sense that they are extremely interested in our success. This is what led to us buying the second press within a year, and a third one again this year, because of the support we have, and the partnership.”

Fisher adds, “We see benefits with the FA-Line that we do not see with other manufacturers. One standout feature is the registration. I’ve never seen a flexo press holds register the way the FA does. We can run up to 400 ft per min., and we laugh that the crosshairs aren’t moving.”

The machine’s ability to hold ultra-tight register can be attributed to the modern machining process at Nilpeter’s US facility. In a traditional shop, presses had been made up of 8-10 pieces of metal. Today, the Nilpeter FA is made from a single piece of steel, which greatly minimizes fractional movement in a printing run. The full unit goes into a large CNC machine. This helps make each unit almost identical, and it requires very little assembly.

Nilpeter’s investment in automation has simplified the press manufacturing process to improve on consistency, quality, and lead time. All machines are tested to ensure, that side-to-side and front-to-back registrations meet the tight tolerance of +/- .001 of an inch in movement, or it’s rejected.

Says Fisher, “They’ve made some serious investments here in the US, which made the decision to choose them as a partner easier, as well in that they are going to be able to deliver on what they have promised. We appreciate their move for redundancy in manufacturing globally, their quality objectives, and their overall philosophy on how they are building their machines. And the stability in their business is reassuring.”

Overcoming workforce challenges
Simplified operator usability is a feature of the FA-Line that has helped Smyth overcome what might be the biggest challenge in the label manufacturing industry: Finding skilled press operators. The pressure to find human resources has only intensified in recent years with no sign of improvement soon.

In today’s manufacturing environment, a modern user interface and automation are key to luring and keeping younger talent in the narrow-web printed packaging sector. Lenny DeGirolmo, President & Managing Director, Nilpeter USA, says, "When our R&D and engineering teams designed the FA-press, they knew we needed to come up with something that is easy to run. This is why the FA has very friendly interface icons that allow for monitoring a lot of the functionality of the machine. The simplicity in user operation allows our customers to put people on presses that have never run one before.”

Stark agrees, “The interface of the FA-press combined with the auto-functionality has certainly helped relieve some of the challenge in finding operators, and in our experience with this new equipment, the younger workforce likes what they see, and want the opportunity to learn the new technology.”

The FA-press saves all the data for a given job, so an operator can easily recall parameters to re-run the next order. Anilox and print cylinders are automatically set to near kiss impression, when the user enters the print cylinder size. And while other press options in the market also deliver quick-change, Smyth has found the changeover with the Nilpeter FA to be less mechanical and command far less tooling to get up and running quickly and consistently.

“Our other presses require experience to problem solving as things come up,” Stark continues. “We have two operators running our new Nilpeter presses that have never been operators before. In a short amount of time, they are becoming efficient and effective.”

“Running the machine is almost intuitive,” says Fisher. “There’s less buttons and minimal settings, that need operator direction, which eliminates the human variable, that we all have been dealing with.”

With the initial installation, Nilpeter’s technician trained four Smyth operators equipped with headsets on the same shift for a week. By the second week, they split the operators into shifts, moving into a special schedule for an 8-week period to allow the production manager to spend time with each operator on every shift, serving as an internal support hub.

Stark says, “Our training strategy built everyone’s confidence. All four operators felt they were on the same team, sharing the same knowledge and any other opportunities to learn.”

Service
With their global headquarters in Denmark, and manufacturing locations in the US and India, Nilpeter has established a 24-7 service system to support all of its customers globally. They have their service process set up, so that customers in any region can call a hotline and reach someone at any time of the day.

DeGirolmo, President & Managing Director, Nilpeter USA, explains, “With anything, support is everything after the fact. We went side by side with the Smyth team on the whole journey.”

Smyth ran into some trouble with the integrated die station and were grateful for Nilpeter’s responsiveness and steadfast support. Explains Stark, “With Nilpeter, if we have any adversity at all, they will do what they can to help us. They are focused on understanding our business and know how important our uptime is to servicing customers. With Nilpeter, it’s about us, and this is a differentiator in the market place that is real.”

Smyth’s maintenance team loves the partnership it has developed with Nilpeter’s technical group. The technicians take pride in getting a press up again after it’s gone down, and with this new relationship, Smyth’s maintenance team has been able to keep presses up and running better than ever before.

Fisher shares, “The machines are performing exactly how they predicted they would, and in some cases even better. I have always been a fan of Nilpeter technology. Their equipment is well-made and well-constructed; it’s high-performance."

“But what impresses me the most with Nilpeter is their service and commitment. There has been a tremendous amount of trust, respect, and sharing to make each other successful. Nilpeter made the promise to be our partner, and spent the time to learn about our needs – not just current state, but where we want to go.”

Color Label Makes A Sustainable Choice With Refurbished FA-2500
Danish Color Label, owners of no less than 10 Nilpeter presses, has made another sustainable press investment by acquiring a fully refurbished, pre-owned Nilpeter FA-2500. An absolutely beautiful classic, according to Nilpeter’s own Nick Hughes.

Image collection:

“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again - for us, Nilpeter is the Mercedes of flexo label printing presses, and we have never considered investing in anything else,” says Erik Grønning, CEO & Owner of Color Label.

Pre-Owned Program
Nilpeter’s Pre-Owned Program is a part of a strategic objective to create sustainable initiatives. Pre-Owned printing presses are often traded in as part of a new purchasing decision. The presses are then fully refurbished to improve the condition and lifetime, providing many years of stabile press performance to a new owner.

The newly refurbished 8-colour UV FA-2500 installed at Color Label is the second of its kind to land on the production floor in Aarhus, Denmark. The press software has been upgraded considerably and all vital mechanical parts and electrical components controlled and/or changed. Cosmetically, all panels and covers have been treated and received a powder coating to factory standards. The result is quite simply an “absolutely beautiful classic,” if you ask Nilpeter Ltd. Managing Director, Nick Hughes.

“With the purchase of our second newly refurbished FA-2500, we now have a total of ten Nilpeter presses on the factory floor, ranging from 10 to 16 inches. And this one looks and feels brand new. They’ve really done an outstanding job on the refurbishment,” Erik Grønning adds.

A Pleasure Working With Color Label
“This is the second press in which we have performed a nut and bolt rebuild for Color Label. It has been a pleasure working with Erik Grønning and Lonnie Melskens, as we have the same expectations when it comes to quality and standards,” says Nick Hughes.

The Sustainable Choice
“The newly refurbished FA-2500 fits right in. We know it’s reliable, and it’s a sustainable choice that allows us to reuse existing tooling, and continue producing green and cost-effective linerless labels. All jobs can be run on all machines, enabling us to always deliver on time, which is in our DNA,” Erik Grønning concludes.

A Leading Label Supplier
Established in 1980, Color Label A/S is one of the leading Danish suppliers of self-adhesive labels to the food industry, the chemical industry, and for retail trade. Color Label is a service-oriented and innovative company that strives to solve any label challenge regardless of the printing and delivery requirements.

Over the years, capacity has multiplied through investments in new and more efficient machinery, strong IT management, and the optimal physical facilities. After the latest expansion with an increased buffer storage, among other things, Color Label now has more than 3,600 sq.m. at their disposal.

Thanks to the fast make-ready, low waste, and increased productivity of the FA-17, Grif plans to reach more competitive label markets in South America. The increased production and cost efficiency will enable Grif to achieve better and lower pricing structures.

Nilpeter Presses in São Paulo
Grif operates a total of 15 flexo presses in São Paulo, Brazil. The first Nilpeter press, an MO-3300S, was acquired in 2008. This was followed by a number of FB-Lines, and now, two new FA-17 presses. This year, 2021, Grif celebrates 35 years in existence, with several different activities planned to mark the occasion.

Better Service & Value-Added Solutions
Grif’s main focus is set on pressure sensitive labels and aims to better service segments, where price plays a larger role with the new presses, while offering value-added solutions to market segments, where they are already represented.

“Having 10 colours with inline process combinations such as cold foil, screen, and different types of lamination, will allow us to present more creative solutions to the market,” says Francisco Paz, Owner, Grif Rótulos e Etiquetas Adhesivas.

“Nilpeter provides outstanding support that gives us the operational security we need, which translates into confidence in our ability to print high quality labels, in high speeds, with the least operational cost possible,” he continues.

Lower Cost Per Label

The Italian printer specializes in self-adhesive labels and shrink sleeves and will be able to perform even faster job changeovers with the new press.

A Spaceship has Landed in Palermo
“A spaceship has landed in Palermo,” Marco Mussumarra, AM Etichette, begins. “Yes, the new FA-17 is installed with great pride in our company, confirming the professionalism and friendship that connects us with Nilpeter, ever since the installation of our first press, the workhorse Nilpeter FB-3300,” he continues.

AM Etichette is an Italian family-owned business based in Palermo, Sicily. The company was founded in 2000 and specializes in the production of self-adhesive labels and shrink sleeves. AM Etichette has always chosen the best and most innovative presses on the market, out of respect for the quality of their products.

FlexoPrint Becomes The First Danish Printer To Install An FA-26
FlexoPrint A/S in Randers, a part of Optimum Group, recently became the first Danish printer to install the new Nilpeter FA-26.

nilpeter-collapsed
Image collection:

FlexoPrint chose the FA-26 after months of comprehensive research, production job tests, and calculations. In the following interview with Inkish TV, FlexoPrint CEO Lars Ole Nauta describes his thoughts behind the company's latest investment.


Investment Decision
“We identified a lot of customer products that could be run better and more efficiently on the FA-26,” Lars Ole Nauta, CEO of FlexoPrint, begins.

“In addition to that, we see a gap in the market between the big foil printers and the narrow-web business. The foil printers usually have very long lead times, where we in the label business are used to very, very short lead times. So if we can combine our label world into the foil world, perhaps there’s a market there,”
he continues. 

“That was one of the reasons why we decided to make this investment and take this chance of investing in the Nilpeter FA-26,” 
Nauta concludes.

FlexoPrint & The Optimum Group
Optimum Group is a versatile group of specialized printing companies that collectively offer a total package of self-adhesive labels and flexible packaging solutions. Optimum Group’s 12 member companies from Holland, Belgium, Denmark, and Germany specialise in UV-Flexo rotary printing and digital printed matter for customers in the Food, Retail, Cosmetics, Pharma, Home & Personal Care, Logistics, and the Chemical industry. 

With the Optimum Green Portfolio, the group serves as a model in the field of sustainability, developing sustainable packaging and labelling solutions through a structured and environmentally friendly approach. Optimum Group’s combined expertise in design and development, the supply chain, management, and efficient processing in the production environment, ensures optimum service for their customers.

The Right Choice For Us
“We have followed the development of the FA-26 over the last few years, and it’s just like we want it. It’s very lean. It’s very simple,” says Nauta. “Efficiency in pricing and competitiveness is very important for FlexoPrint, and also for the Optimum Group, when we purchase machines. It’s not something we take lightly. Actually, I’ve always said buying hardware is one of the most difficult jobs as a CEO. It will follow you for many years. So we did a thorough investigation, months and months of calculating, and thinking about which way to go. At the end of the day, we thought that the FA-26 was the right choice for us.”

Value-Added Short Run Flexible Packaging
The FA-26 is the latest and widest flexo press Nilpeter has ever developed. Designed for value-added short run flexible packaging and labels, all inline, and fully sleeve-based, both for anilox and plate rollers. 

The FA-26 robust unit construction, compact footprint, and landscape design ensure optimum register and consistent high printing quality at all speeds. Designed to print with water-based and solvent inks, with UV, LED, and E-beam processes – in any combination, the FA-26 is a game-changer in short and long run flexible packaging printing. From pouches and sachets, to wrap-arounds, shrink sleeves, labels, and more.

A Part Of Us In The Future
“Of course, I know Nilpeter as a Danish company. But I have to say that we have three competitor machines, and at that time we didn’t think the FA was ready. If we had seen the press now, looking back, we would definitely have chosen Nilpeter. So we think Nilpeter will be a part of us in the future. Also regarding narrower flexo presses,” Nauta adds.

Productivity and ROI
“It is a bit early to look at ROI, but we can see that the speed is basically what we have calculated with. We still have to work a bit on the changeover times, get comfortable, and speed things up. But when we get that right, and we can put our old flexo spirit into our new presses, it will definitely be a good investment,” Lars Ole Nauta concludes.

The Right Mindset
"We are proud to install the first FA-26 in Denmark. FlexoPrint has the right mindset to get the most out of this new printing technology. The company has a strong focus on creating bottom line value through high printing quality and production efficiency, and before deciding to purchase the press, FlexoPrint actually ran their own production jobs on the press in order to calculate ROI and justify the new investment," says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.
