Important Player in the Nordic Region
Etiflex A/S was founded in 1973 on the pillars of quality, innovation, and delivery assurance. Today, Etiflex is one of the most important players in the Nordic region producing a high volume of labels and flexible packaging for customers such as Carlsberg, Velux, Tican, and more. The FA-22 is Etiflex' third Nilpeter printing press, in addition to their FB-4200 and FA-4.

There’s No Denying of Nilpeter’s Impact
“We’ve worked with Nilpeter since 2005, and to be frank, there’s no denying of their impact; having a stable, high quality press is probably the most import part of our business,” says Brian Sandgaard, Technical Director and Partner, Etiflex A/S.

”The pandemic has affected everyone, us included, but Nilpeter actually managed to install the FA-22 in the start of December, at the height of the second wave, by adhering to all restrictions and guidelines. They have been extremely helpful,” Brian Sandgaard continues.

Business is Good
”A very successful installation by the way – the press has run perfectly since day 1! With self-adhesive labels, monofilms, and carton,” Brian Sandgaard concludes, before leaving the door open for new Nilpeter equipment in the future, ”We just bought one, however, business is good, so who knows.”

Incredibly Easy to Operate
”The new FA-22 is incredibly easy to operate. It goes into register in seconds and stays there no matter what material is in the press, and at any speed. I really enjoy operating this piece of equipment,” says Jesper Nielsen, Printer & Team Leader, Etiflex A/S.

Built Around the Modern Printing Operator
The FA-22 is the perfect fit for an ambitious printer like Etiflex. The press is designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs and built around the modern printing operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. A benchmark of flexibility and modularity, the FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with a high level of automation. Last but not least, all main components are produced in-house at Nilpeter in Denmark and the United States, meaning higher production quality and control.

Delighted to Continue The Partnership
“Despite everything going on we were able to conduct both remote and in-person meetings, tests, and training, of course following all health guidelines and policies put into place by both companies,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S. “We’ve established a great partnership with Etiflex over the years, and we’re delighted to see it grow,” Jesper Jørgensen concludes.

Safe Throughout
“We are very happy to work with Nilpeter. Their experience and knowledge will help us improve, and the short 90-minute drive to Slagelse is a great, added bonus,” Leif Persson says. “COVID-19 obviously changed and slowed down the process, but we have still been able to meet under current restrictions, and we feel very safe,” Leif Persson continues when asked how the global pandemic has affected current activities.

“Hopefully, this investment will lift our business so we will have demand for new equipment in the near future,”
Leif Persson concludes.

A Long and Constructive Partnership
“We are very proud to partner with StrongPoint Labels, a highly significant company in the graphic industry, and in security printing in Scandinavia. We look forward to a long and constructive partnership,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.

A Part Of The Family
Already a part of the Nilpeter family, having operated FB-Line presses since the early 2000s, Niagara Label is looking to become more cost-effective with the quick-change features of the new FA-17. The FA-17 has been on Niagara Label General Manager Keith Hatswell’s radar for quite some time, and checks all the boxes to address the company’s diverse product portfolio.

“The new FA expands our capacity and capabilities, which we expect will bring in new opportunities. Furthermore, it will help us remain competitive, especially with longer run jobs, and up against larger companies with wider presses,” says Keith Hatswell, General Manager, Niagara Label.

Can-Do Approach
Niagara Label is a mid-sized, label manufacturer near Buffalo, NY, conveniently located to serve the American Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions. With over 33 years of experience, Niagara Label is poised to ensure the highest quality of prime product labels for every market sector. Their responsive, can-do approach lends itself perfectly to the just-in-time requirements of the industry. Like Nilpeter, they think of customers as partners, and work hard to ensure the feeling is mutual.

“Having watched Niagara Label’s continued growth utilizing our Nilpeter FB-Line technology, we are confident the FA-17 automation and Quick-Change features will provide the efficiency needed to address their capacity issues, and the flexibility to grow into new markets. Nilpeter is excited to be Niagara Label’s printing partner,” says Walt Mesik, Senior Sales Consultant, Nilpeter USA.

The Most Versatile Flexo Press on the Market
Designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs, Nilpeter’s FA-Line is built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user-interface, and fully mobile print controls. Furthermore, the FA-Line features a vertical auto-lock system, driven chill rollers, the latest generation CLEANINKING system, multi-substrate printing, and more.

Western Shield Runs Faster with the New Nilpeter FA-17
Western Shield Label Company has installed a new Nilpeter FA-17 at the company’s location in Los Angeles, California, USA. With the new FA, Western Shield’s general focus is long-run prime, pressure sensitive labels, and specialty labels with in-line cold foil embellishment.

”This is our second Nilpeter press. We previously bought an FB-Line and were very pleased with the performance. The experience with the FB-Line and the Nilpeter team was a key factor in our ultimate decision to purchase the FA-17,” says Dan Stadler, Director of Marketing, Western Shield Label Company.

An Excellent Fit All Around
”We have been working with Nilpeter on and off for many years. As far as purchasing an actual press, we initiated the discussions on the FB-Line in 2016. We had acquired a large new account that required us to substantially increase our capacity. We were pleased with the speed and registration of the FB-Line, and wanted to improve set-up times, and reduce waste. The FB-Line, which we use for long-run jobs particularly focused on the beverage segment, was and has been an excellent fit for us all around,” says Mike Ornelas, Director of Procurement, Western Shield Label Company.

A Means to Enter the Flexible Packaging Space
“The new FA-17 was installed in the spring of 2020. The logic behind the purchase was quite simply, that the FA-Line has advanced technology that allows us to run faster and reduce waste. The additional width, this being our first 17’’ press in the Los Angeles facility, was a factor as well. Lastly, we are using the FA-Line’s capabilities as a means to enter the flexible packaging space,” Dan Stadler adds.

Partnership Is Key
”Nilpeter partnered with us first by understanding our business model, and then assisting us in making the best decisions on the equipment, that most clearly fits our needs. More specifically, Nilpeter took the time, upfront, to understand our current state, and proposed future state, and then helped us fill the gaps equipment-wise,” says Nizar Elias, CEO, Western Shield Label Company.

”We are looking to continue building capacity and capabilities across our 5 locations. Through our recent new locations, we inherited additional Nilpeter equipment, and we certainly see a path for additional purchases,” Dan Stadler concludes.

”Western Shield’s commitment to producing a high quality product in a timely, competitive, and efficient manner makes their choice of the Nilpeter FA-Line a natural fit. Nilpeter knows, that in today’s business environment, choosing the right printing partner has never been more important. We at Nilpeter appreciate the trust Western Shield has put in us,” John Crammer, Sales Consultant, Nilpeter USA, adds.

Built Around the Modern Print Operator
Designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs, Nilpeter’s FA-Line is built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. A benchmark of flexibility and modularity, the FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with Value-Adding Units, Application and Automation Packages, according to application needs and budget. Last but not least, all main components are produced in-house, meaning higher production quality and control.


First Ever Nilpeter FA-17 Installed in Kazakhstan
Inkas LLC has purchased a 9-colour FA-17 from Nilpeter, the first of its kind to be installed in Kazakhstan.

Inkas LLC was founded in 2002 and has since established itself as one of the leading printing companies in Kazakhstan, cooperating with the best companies at home and abroad, in the market for flexible packaging of food and non-food products.

“We have more than 140 employees with a lot of practical experience, operate 24-hours a day, and print all kinds of jobs - food, pharmacy, textile or household chemicals,“ says Ivan Pivovarov, Director, Inkas LLC. “More than 5,000 customers from Kazakhstan and other CIS countries trust us, and we work hard to bring happiness to them, as well as the people who use goods packed with our labels and flexible packaging,” Ivan Pivovarov adds.

In addition to flexographic printing of all kinds of labels, Inkas LLC produces receipt tape for all types of cash register devices, paper rolls for fax machines, printers, teletypes and ATMs, and thermal labels with bar code for retail scales and printers.

Remain Leaders in The Industry
”We’re striving to improve quality, expand our product range, and remain leaders in our industry. The market keeps moving, and we received requests for products that could not be produced on our existing equipment, with queues building, negatively affecting deadlines,” Ivan Pivovarov continues.

“The FA-Line’s optimal price-to-quality ratio, and good selection of additional options, were decisive factors. With the new Nilpeter flexo printing press we are planning to produce new types of products that we could not produce before, and we hope the business will grow rapidly,” Ivan Pivovarov concludes.

A Very Important Player in the Market
“Nilpeter is delighted and highly appreciative that Inkas LLC has decided to invest in our FA-17, which, as stated earlier, is the first of its kind in Kazakhstan. Inkas LLC is a very important player in the market, and we are proud to announce the cooperation between our companies. The project was established in October 2019, and was spearheaded by our new agent for Russia and CIS, company "Prima Scelta"” says Dan Wissing, Area Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.

The 9-colour FA-17 installed at Inkas LLC in Kazakhstan is fitted with Nilpeter’s Advanced Automation, Registration, and Film Application Packages, and completed with features such as UV-curing and cooling technology, rail system, turn bar for filmic material, de- and re-lamination equipment, UV-lamination, rotary die-cutting with GAP-master, an embossing cassette, back-side slitting for edge trimming, automatic matrix removal, video inspection, and more.

Experienced Leadership and Skilled Specialists
Inkas LLC covers the full production cycle - from the development of layouts, to colour separation, manufacturing of photopolymer forms, and the release of finished high-quality products. To achieve the best results for their customers, Inkas LLC prides itself on experienced leadership and skilled specialists, working with modern, high-class equipment from Western manufacturers, and raw materials from the very best suppliers.

eAgile Installs New Nilpeter FA-17 in the Midst of a Global Pandemic
RFID-specialists, eAgile Inc. of Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, have invested in a new Nilpeter FA-17 to meet specific process needs within their pharmaceutical and nutraceutical product portfolios.
Image collection:

Nilpeter’s FA-Line is built around the modern print operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. The FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with Value-Adding Units, Application and Automation Packages, according to application needs and budget. All main components are produced in-house, meaning higher production quality and control.

High Demands for Tolerances and Re-register
”Our search started back in March, after we identified a need to add new flexo processes – we have primarily been a digital print house up to this point,” says Zach Wagner, Process Engineer, eAgile Inc. ”We specialize in RFID-products – primarily for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical customers, where our new FA is used to produce labels with RFID-inlays. The medical industry demands very tight tolerances, which the FA-17 is able to achieve, in addition to instant re-register with pre-printed materials,” Zach Wagner continues.

In Complete Control
”Fortunately, we were able to visit Nilpeter in Cincinnati before the strictest COVID-19 restrictions were imposed, and got to see their incredibly accurate manufacturing processes - the CNC-machines, the framing and mounting, the assembly lines, etc. From start to finish a very consistent process, which confirmed our belief that Nilpeter and the FA-17 would meet the high standards and requirements from our side of the table” Zach Wagner adds.

Safely Navigating COVID-19 Restrictions
eAgile’s new FA-17 was installed in October, with manufacturing, assembly, installation, and training, safely navigating the COVID-19 restrictions set by local and state governments. In addition to their visit to Nilpeter facilities in March, eAgile reports a number of virtual conferences, Zoom meetings, phone calls, and similar, where various details were discussed.

”We also made the usual rounds, asking our friends and partners in the industry, and Nilpeter has a great reputation – from the machinery to the service. I was also very impressed with Nilpeter’s ability to maintain such an ambitious timeline for delivery of our FA-17, considering the unique circumstances of the past few months. It was a positive experience, and I’m very excited about what our relationship with them will bring in the future,” Zach Wagner concludes.

Future Upgrades and Additions
The FA-17 fulfills eAgile’s production needs for now, but according to Zach Wagner, they will undoubtedly turn to Nilpeter for future upgrades and new additions.

Rewarding on All Fronts 
“Working with eAgile has been rewarding on all fronts. The Nilpeter FA-17 literally sold itself as the perfect fit to achieve all of eAgile’s needs. Initially, we encouraged eAgile to execute their due diligence and allow an "apples to apples" comparison with any flexo manufacturerer, that claims their machine is as robust and capable to deliver the tight registration and automation of the Nilpeter FA-Line," Walt Mesik, Senior Sales Consultant, Nilpeter USA Inc., begins.

"When it was time to prove the Nilpeter FA-technology, the FA-17 checked all the boxes for eAgile from manufacturing to assembly to specific performance testing. The Nilpeter FA-17 provides the state-of-the-art platform that is synonymous with the eAgile product line. It is safe to say the Nilpeter/eAgile partnership was meant to be,” Walt Mesik concludes.


Texas Converter Strengthens Position in Short-Run Flexible Packaging with Nilpeter FA-26
TQL Packaging Solutions continue its advancement in packaging films printing with Nilpeter’s multi-faceted, in-line FA-26 flexographic press. By Danielle Jerschefske.

TQL Packaging Solutions (TQL), based in Dallas, Texas, will continue its advancement in packaging films printing with an exciting investment in Nilpeter’s multi-faceted, in-line FA-26 flexographic press. With 10-color stations, UV-LED curing lamps, and both UV and E-Beam lamination capability all in-line, the flexibility of TQL’s FA-26 flexo press is truly distinctive.

The FA-26 is the widest press released to the global market to date by the Danish manufacturer, and this installation is the first of any in Nilpeter’s press series to include in-line E-Beam lamination. The press has been designed to maximize the profitability of short-run conversion of film structures for pouches, sachets, stick packs and shrink sleeves.

The FA-26 carries the same features and benefits the Nilpeter brand is regarded for in narrow web printing market combined with wider throughput, and a new a printhead design – all supported by comprehensive and advanced automation systems.

“It is rare for a piece of equipment to exceed my expectations,“ says Scott Smith, TQL Packaging Solutions founder. “I knew the Nilpeter FA-26 would be a great press, but it has delivered beyond what I expected in performance.“

Already realizing growth in flexible packaging and shrink sleeve label markets using narrow web films presses, it made sense to advance into a wider format press. “We’ve done well to jump to 26 inches,“ says Smith. “At this width, we’re able to address a piece of the market that we had not been wide enough to service previously.”

The increased width has greatly improved the converter’s hourly throughput. Additionally, the wider web brings greater opportunity to capture new business in several popular formats and designs that require a printing web greater than twenty inches.

The FA-26 brings a new landscape printhead design to the in-line flexo machine that supports execution of premium print quality across the additional web width. Eight motors drive and control each printhead with closed loop feed back to the PLC.

Smith explains, “Nilpeter’s technology in the FA-26 has jumped from previous films presses. The landscape design of the printhead is awesome. It greatly minimizes the bounce that some images produce on our traditional film presses, and it allows us to increase speed.”

TQL is effectively running jobs at or below 25,000 feet, setting up faster than its narrower equipment with set-up automation, and doubling the speeds it regularly runs on 16” presses. With job memory and auto-register, TQL operators are able to efficiently web the press and dial-in settings to produce saleable product quickly with less waste and higher quality.

Adds Smith, “We are noticing far better efficiencies in set-up, and less waste, even with a much wider web than we’re used to running.”

Flexo Competes with Gravure Quality
TQL targets business with complex graphics that require photo image quality and soft edges. Traditionally flexible packaging and other printed films markets have demanded offset and gravure printing to produce the crisp, fade-to-zero images that catch a shopper’s eye on pouches and sachets, enticing them to purchase.

Smith explains, “There’s a huge number of buyers out there that want the super high quality and consistency that they’re used to getting from gravure. This new press allows us to deliver on that expectation with quicker turnaround and lower cost.”

Jakob Landberg, Global Sales Director at Nilpeter, explains, “All our presses are manufactured to the highest accuracy in-house. The frames are welded together and powder coated, with all drilling, grinding and threading processes completed in one step. In this way, when our customers store positions in the job files, jobs can be recalled to the tightest tolerance with the presses holding ultra-tight register over the run length, and consistency from job to job.”

The advancement in flexographic technology – digital artwork development and HD plating, new ink and curing systems and more – throughout the print market supports the precision and flexibility designed into the FA-26 press.

Flexibility and Sustainability
The packaging converter selected options for its FA-26 press to bring the business distinct advantages in flexibility and sustainability. With UV-LED curing and in-line E-Beam lamination, TQL is stronger in servicing customer short-run flexible packaging requirements with any variety of materials coupled with various ink systems and laminating technologies.

TQL chose a UV-LED curing system, with lamps that are cool to touch, making them more compatible with heat sensitive substrates. A UV-LED system uses significantly less energy than traditional LED systems, and can be turned on and used instantly with the intensity required to fully cure inks, bringing more speed to the converter’s turnaround time. The UV-LED lamps are also highly durable when compared to traditional mercury systems, lasting longer and demanding fewer part changes to meet performance needs over time.

TQL’s FA-26 is equipped to cure UV and E-Beam lamination adhesives to produce a wide variety of flexible packaging. E-Beam lamination has proven film-bonding properties with multiple substrates including BOPP, PET and LDPE based sealant films, aluminum foil, and papers. EB laminated structures exhibit good water, and food resistance, are suitable for food packaging with FDA compliance, and are odorless.

Smith admits, “Nilpeter’s ability to integrate E-Beam lamination into the press, achieving the smooth level of communication required to meet the quality and speed we need to service our customers has been impressive.”

Pandemic Aside
Twenty-five percent of the work TQL produces is for the food and beverage market. Once COVID-19 hit and consumer demand spiked, the converter produced a year’s worth of volume between March and May 1.

Smith tells, “The challenges of COVID-19 have been moderately high for us as a company. However, we had less challenges in the installation of this press than in most previous new press installations. Now consider that this is a beta press with a major retrofit piece of equipment, the first of its design, and the challenges that typically come with a beta press, I think Nilpeter did exceptionally well.”

Landberg says, “The installation success can be attributed to Nilpeter’s strong local technical support in North America and our close collaboration with the TQL team. The press was flown to Texas from Denmark, installed, and integrated with the lamination unit with very few challenges.”

TQL expects to hit capacity on its new press in the next six months with its financial trends showing growth between 30-40 percent for the end of 2020, and a pipeline that could promise 100 percent growth to kick off 2021.

Smith continues, “The market for what the machine can do is so much greater than what we estimated. Between new work and cutting in on traditional gravure business, the future looks bright for our business, and I expect we’ll need a second FA-26 very soon.”

Australian MAXTEQ Appointed as New Nilpeter Agent
Nilpeter Asia Pacific is pleased to announce that Australian based MAXTEQ has been appointed as the new local Nilpeter agent.

For many years, Nilpeter Asia Pacific has managed sales in Australia and New Zealand from their regional headquarters in Bangkok, Thailand, but have now decided to engage a local partner to further support Nilpeter’s existing set-up in Australia and to drive future sales.

”The Australia and New Zealand markets have always been special to Nilpeter, both historically, as well as from a more recent perspective,” comments Erik Blankenstein, Sales Director for Nilpeter Asia Pacific.
”These markets are not only diverse, they are foremost quality-driven. And generally, this is where the Nilpeter proposition comes in best.”

”Having MAXTEQ on board will enhance our market approach and improve our local availability. Furthermore, the level of expertise of Andrew Maxwell and his team at MAXTEQ has impressed us,” adds Jeff Novice, Nilpeter Service Australia. ”We are excited, and believe this partnership will create a beneficial mix of commercial and technical knowledge that, in the end, will allow us to better address customer requirements locally.”

Founded in 1919 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nilpeter has since grown into one of the most recognised and renowned narrow-web press manufacturers in the world.

With major production facilities in Europe, the USA and South-Asia, Nilpeter operates in more than 70 countries worldwide, and markets a well-defined range of press-lines; offering complete printing solutions and aiming to create simplicity for customers in their desired press selection and optimisation of their production workflow.

Since its introduction in 2017, the latest edition of the popular FA-Line has proven to be an unparalleled asset in adding value to both printing-quality and productivity in a wide variety of market segments.

Green-Label Adds Second Nilpeter FA-17
Long-time Nilpeter customer, Green-Label of Aarhus, Denmark, has acquired a second Nilpeter FA-17, adding capacity in order to meet increasing customer demands. Nilpeter is pleased to continue the great, long-standing relationship with Green-Label.

Value-Adding Options
Green-Label’s new 8-colour FA-17 features the added registration and film application packages, a rail system for value-adding options, soft-tension unwind and UV-lamination, and more. The FA-Line offers easy press operation for both flexible packaging and label jobs, with quick job setup and changeovers. The press is scheduled for installation in the third quarter of 2020.

Tailored for Quick Turnarounds
“The new press is tailored for quick turnarounds, and a perfect fit for the majority of our orders; 6-7-8 colours with lamination, setup, go. Changing from one six-colour job to another typically takes around 15 minutes – that’s as fast, if not faster, than on our smaller machines. That’s why we bought it, and we’re positive it will add to our flexibility and competitiveness,” says co-owner of Green-Label, Claus Grønning.

“We’ve seen the reliability of the FA-17 first hand, and the limited need for service. Colour change, sleeve change etc. is very easy, the user friendliness is way up there, and the print quality is second-to-none. And obviously, having all the sleeves, dies, and tooling from the first press is an added bonus,” he continues.

“This latest press installation makes five in total from the popular FA-Line program at Green-Label, and we are very pleased to continue the great, long-standing relationship. In the past three months we have sold three FA-Line presses to three Danish label printers, who have all experienced decent growth in spite of recent COVID-19 challenges,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S.

Green-Label’s First Nilpeter FA-17
The first FA-17, installed in August 2017, hit the ground running with a crisp-bag collaboration between specialists in pre-press, material, press, inks, and curing. The result was on display at LabelExpo Europe 2017. This press has since been fitted with a cross-over unit and lamination tower, among other equipment upgrades, to better serve customers with more advanced, high specialty jobs and projects.
