Baker Labels to install the first FB-3 in the UK this September

Two years into their new Brentwood home, Baker Labels continue to invest in top of the range presses during their 40th Anniversary planned expansion. With four successful decades behind them, they confidently meet the growing demand for quality from trade print customers.

They produce over 50,000 digital impressions per day. However, Managing Director Steve Baker understands the importance of providing complementary technologies. “Both digital and flexo processes have unique qualities, and it is important that we stay on top of both markets to ensure that we can deliver first class labels to our diverse customer base. The purchase of the FB-3 will allow us to meet the growing demand for labels economically whilst maintaining exact colour-matching, a prerequisite for big brands.”

Baker Labels’ investment in the Nilpeter FB-3 will facilitate high-quality, cost-effective printing; great news for their trade customers. Bakers’ experienced printer, George Gounaris, has been working with Nilpeter presses for 12 years. “The new wide width means more labels per print run”, Gounaris explains. “The technology that the FB-3 brings will see me working at 3 times the speed which makes Baker Labels more cost effective and competitive. I can’t wait to see what the ‘Sophisticated Workhorse’ is capable of.”

The FB-3 represents the latest technology integrated into a new, ground-up designed platform. The ergonomically designed printing stations each has 5 servos for complete automation of all adjustments including job save, job load, and job change, as well as pre-setting, impression settings, and side-register load. The dual axis servo transport system ensures that the FB-3 will continually deliver the highest level of print reproduction, as well as unparalleled registration performance. Other features include Nilpeter’s CLEANINKING system, quick-release anilox rollers, and plate cylinders.
