PRESS RELEASE: Labels West Chooses Nilpeter
Woodinville, Washington - Labels West is committing to the next level of flexographic printing with Nilpeter. Nilpeter flexographic presses are full servo-driven presses offering print sleeve technology, fully electronic dot-to-dot registration, thin gauge film capability, incredibly fast print speed and more. These advanced features eliminate gear and bar marks that are generally associated with flexo gear-driven presses and allow the production of more creative, intricate label designs. Labels West is very satisfied with the quality and speed of production from the Nilpeter, stating it has made a significant difference in what they are able to offer to their customers.
"It just made sense," says Labels West V.P. general manager Bruce Boyd, commenting on the company's decision to acquire a Nilpeter press. "This next level of flexo suits the needs of our customers. It bridges the gap between our digital offset printing and flexo." As the demand for high quality labels grows, it is easy to see why Nilpeter was a great choice for Labels West.
Each print station on the Nilpeter press is equipped with both UV and water based ink drying capability and chill drums with water cooling to help stabilize thin films. Metric repeats are possible because each print station can electronically compensate and adjust to metric measurements while using existing tooling. The press also features a movable unwind/rewind system, which makes application of cold foil easier and more versatile. At a maximum press speed of 750 feet per minute, Nilpeter presses are some of the fastest on the market today.
"We're not turning back—this technology is where Labels West is going," says Lance Wilson, V.P. sales and marketing director for Labels West. "The introduction of this technology has raised the bar on expectations for flexographic printing."
