Growing demand for labels prompted the purchase of the 10-colour FB-3 flexo press that reaches a top speed of 750 fpm.
A bump in business prompted 3C! Packaging to add more than 3,000 square feet of additional facility space, as well as hire several new front-end personnel.
On the production side, to accommodate the growing demand for its label operations, 3C! Packaging has installed a new Nilpeter FB-3 flexo press, one of the fastest on the market. The 10-colour press delivers a top speed of 228 m/min. (750 fpm) with no compromises to print quality on webs up to 350 mm (13.75″) wide. Despite being designed as a high-performance press, the FB-3 remains competitive over a wide range of run lengths, including short runs.
The new Nilpeter press is especially versatile: The machine’s movable unwind/rewind towers with rail system allow multiple label configurations, while its short web path yields fast job changeovers with minimum start-up waste. Each of the ergonomically-designed printing units includes five servo systems to automate all adjustments for saving, loading, and changing jobs, as well as for job pre-setting, impression settings, and side register load.
