The flexibles division was set up in December 2000 to produce high quality film labels and flexible packaging, especially pouches and sachets. It uses UV flexo technology under clean-room conditions. The new servo-driven FA-4 will join two other nine-unit Nilpeter presses, both FA-3300 models. The FA-4 includes a cold foil unit, interchangeable Nilpeter/Stork drop-in UV rotary screen modules and three laminating/coating units. It can operate with either seamless photopolymer sleeves or plates, depending on the application and run length.
The award-winning OPM was established 30 years ago, and currently has 56 employees. Much of the company's success has come from identifying niche, short-run markets for film and foil products, as well as producing premium-quality prime labels, peel/reseal labels, multi-layer products and security labels.
