Leading Turkish printer to install Nilpeter UV flexo press

December 6, 2010

The FA-4, to be delivered in February, will be the company’s first servo driven flexo press.

Canpas, one of Turkey’s largest label converters, has ordered a Nilpeter FA-4 press. The configuration includes eight UV-Flexo units and two interchangeable rotary screen units. It will be the family-owned company’s first servo-driven flexo press at its plant in Istanbul, and the first supplied by Nilpeter. Delivery is scheduled for February 2011.

According to Aydin Okay, founder and CEO (also president of the Turkish Label Association and a FINAT board member), the new press will allow the 30 year old company to increase capacity in the higher added-value markets, such as primary PS labels for the healthcare and cosmetic sectors. The FA-4’s multi-substrate capability, which ranges from thin films to lightweight carton board, also gives Canpas the option to produce alternative flexible packaging products in small-to-medium run lengths.

The Nilpeter FA-4 has a web width of 420 mm (16.5”) and a top speed of 175 m/min (575 fpm). It features a servo-driven infeed, dual-axis servo drives on all print units, a mid-feed pacer, and easy-load plate and anilox sleeve technologies to reduce job changeover times. The unwinder and rewinder have the same 40-inch diameter, while a taper tension control on the latter ensures the uniform tension essential for film printing.
