Nilpeter showcases 200 line screen flexo at open house

May 30, 2006

Nilpeter USA showcased its FB3300A press at an open house in Cincinnati, OH, this month. The demonstration of the inline flexo press used 200 line screen photopolymer plates.

Nilpeter partnered with Enovation Graphic Systems and MacDermid Printing Solutions, which demonstrated Digital MLT: a digital plate which was processed on the MacDermid LAVA thermal plate processing system. The resulting 200 line screen photopolymer plates were then used to print labels on the FB3300A. This is the highest line screen plate that MacDermid has ever developed.

Nilpeter engineers demonstrated the capabilities of the FB3300A by printing high quality cosmetic, food, water, and spirit labels on the eight-color, 13" press. First introduced at Labelexpo Europe last September, the FB3300A has generated more than 30 orders worldwide. Available in 10", 13" and 16" web widths, the FB-Line of presses can reach speeds of up to 750 fpm.

“This is the highest line screen flexo plate that I have seen produced in the narrow web market with a thermal plate processor,” says Ted Schaffer of Enovation Graphics. Digital MLT is a medium durometer uncapped plate that can be processed either in conventional solvent processing systems or the LAVA thermal plate processing system.

“We’re running this 200 line screen job to show how easy it is to achieve the highest quality on the FB3300A,” says Nilpeter USA President Andy Colletta.

Industry suppliers who also participated in the Nilpeter open house were RotoMetrics, GEW, Water Ink Technologies, Tesa Tape, JM Heaford, and EC Shaw.
