As a prelude to LabelExpo 2013 in Brussels, a Brazilian VIP Tour in Europe was organised by ABIEA, the association of Brazilian self-adhesive label manufacturers for a delegation of around 40 converters.
At Grafical, a wine label specialist, the delegation saw a demonstration of a Nilpeter MO-4 offset press with its lightweight sleeve technology. The converters witnessed the production of a wine label job with six different hot foils, a complete job change, a combination and a standard job – and a job run at 160 m/min on an offset flexo combination.
Jos Vitorino of Brazilian converter Oliver Print Adesivoa Ltda. said, “I was amazed by the degree of professionalism demonstrated by Grafical. The MO-4 is an outstanding piece of equipment – and the demonstration was impeccable. At Oliver Print, we have Nilpeter’s FB-3300S flexo press, which for us has been a quantum leap ahead”.
Lesso Warmeling of Flexoprint said, “This perfect offset demonstration reaffirms that I have chosen the right printing partner in Nilpeter. In January we decided to make a shift to our first Nilpeter, the FA-4. We firmly believe that Nilpeter is in a league of their own”.
The tour was organized in cooperation with Castel Turismo, run by former ABIEA president Eduardo Chede. ‘I have been organizing VIP tours for 15 years – and this is by far the best visit we have ever had. It will be a hard act to follow. Grafical definitely set all sails and were extremely accommodating. We were even presented with personalized gifts and banners in Portuguese.The night before LabelExpo opened, a cocktail reception for the Brazilian delegation at the Hilton Hotel welcomed more than 120 attendees.Watch the presentation video made for the Brazilian delegation
