The FB-3 – a huge success at Graphics of the Americas

Nilpeter presented the new UV-flexo label and packaging press, FB-3, to the American markets at GOA 2013.

Demonstrations were run throughout the show, and the many visitors were impressed with the impeccable, fast job setups and quick changeovers.

After 15 years of attendance, Nilpeter this year presented the new FB-3 at a booth in the flexo zone, a GOA novelty. We welcomed current and new customers from USA, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Columbia, Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina to have a close look at Nilpeter’s sophisticated workhorse, and the feedback was extremely positive.

“We expected a positive reaction, but still we were thrilled to see how much interest was raised at the show”, Sales Manager USA Tom Clawson states. “We sold the show press, we booked numerous sessions at our Cincinatti Technology Center, and even offset and packaging converters were intrigued be the FB-3“, Tom Clawon concludes.

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,which – when combined with the available quick-change Revolver Die-cutting system – makes the FB-3 a natural addition to any lean printing environment.
