Labels Unlimited opts for Nilpeter

March 2, 2011

The British converter’s first Nilpeter press is an FB-3300 combination press with flexo, screen and hot foil.

Labels Unlimited, Bredbury, England, has acquired its first Nilpeter press. The new machine is an FB-3300 combination press configured with eight UV flexo units, an interchangeable rotary screen module and a hot foil module, both based on Nilpeter's Drop-In technology. It has a maximum web width of 330 mm (13") and can produce self-adhesive labels and flexible packaging at a top speed of 228 m/min. (750 fpm).

The company's main business is to produce paper and film self-adhesive labels for the home-care and bakery sectors, with food labels for the farming industry as a growing specialization. Lately it has expanded into flexible packaging, such as sachets and pouches, involving unsupported films and foil laminates.

“Last September we moved into a new factory unit of 603 square meters (6,500 square feet) in Bredbury. We are currently in the process of expanding the unit by installing a mezzanine floor to store plates, consumables and materials to open up the pressroom floor,” says Marc Bradley, managing director. “The new press with UV curing will greatly expand production volumes and the type of products we can produce.” The company's expansion plans also included the UK’s first Polish-made Flexor/Emis 440C slitter/rewinder with a diecutting unit to convert blank data labels.
