Reflex Group welcomes a new FA-22 flexo press to the UK site

Reflex Plus has added another new fully loaded 560 mm wide FA-22 flexo press for their Keighley site in England. The press is now fully installed and is running production.

“We know the Nilpeter machines very well, and we have worked with their team for many years. This new press can produce almost everything, and it is a true beverage combination press that gives us the flexibility and dynamics we need in our production setup. The Nilpeter presses and their customer service never disappoint”, says Shaun Hanson, Keighley Site Manager of Reflex Group.

Built around the modern printing operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls, the Nilpeter FA-Line provides a maximum level of stability, the tightest register tolerance, and excellent printing results on multiple substrates. Reflex Group’s new 10-colour press is fully loaded and comes with a range of features, such as an advanced automation package making production faster and easier with a major waste reduction during set up and run without compromising quality.

Besides the automation package, the new flexo press is equipped with an advanced drying technology, a UV-laminating unit, cold-foil equipment, RSI Nilscreen printing unit, a flatbed embossing/hotfoil unit, a die-cutting unit, waste handling, and a video inspection system. Indeed, a multi-faceted press.

Nick Hughes, Managing Director at Nilpeter Ltd, congratulated Reflex Group on their new press, stating,

“It is a great press and they have now integrated it completely into their existing production setup, and it looks great. It runs like a train. We know that Reflex Group has a huge focus on sustainability, and with this new press they use less energy to run the machine, and they have a lot less waste especially around the double foil save. The process with Reflex Group has been great and we have built a solution that fits perfectly with their business and needs. And that’s what it’s all about”.
