The Nilpeter Bell rang 24 times, each time one of the Nilpeter presses was sold at LabelExpo Europe 2013.
Receiving its European debut was the sleeve-based FA-4* for high-end labels and packaging, and the high-performance FB-3 UV-flexo press delivering the highest level of print reproduction as well as unparalleled registration performance. The new MO-5 offset platform, a wider 520 mm-version for labels and package printing, also created much interest among the premium-quality converters in Brussels.
Nilpeter also experienced a strong interest for the new inline Quick-Change magnetic die-module, the QC-Die. Recently developed, the system allows operators to ergonomically change cylinders in less than 10 seconds, which was demonstrated time and again during the show. Solid die-cutting cylinders can also be incorporated. Another attraction was the inline flatbed unit for hot foil and embossing unit, the FP-4, and the inline gravure unit for printing metallic inks and other coatings, the G-4.
Jakob Landberg, Sales & Marketing Director, says, “Two years ago there was less hype and it was not such an exciting exhibition. Now the hype is back and the show is vibrant and positive. This year we have had customers come on the stand and have enthusiastically made a purchasing decision on the spot. Instead of concentrating solely on efficiency, the accent this year has been capacity. Heavy metal is back!”
