Mack Color invests in third Nilpeter

July 2, 2013

The Brazilian printer purchased an FB-3300 with nine printing units.

Brazilian label printer Mack Color has bought its third Nilpeter FB-3300 flexo press. Founded in 1984, the Sao Paulo-based company says it prides itself on having developed an advanced printing facility, operated by highly qualified staff and focused on fulfilling current and future customer needs through constant investment in technology.

“This most recent FB-3300 has nine printing units, UV-varnish and cold foil, and a state-of-the-art register control system”, says Mack Color’s owner Marcos Rossi. “The servo-motors for each of the nine printing units guarantee a perfect register among different colours and complex, delicate images."

The company considers this press as their driving force to achieve high productivity and excellent quality, including value-added processes that allow high performance, special printing, such as silk screen printing, reverse-side printing, and cold foil.

Mack Color bought two FB-3300A presses five years ago, replacing four Comco Cadets and two Gallus R 200s. Three months ago, the company relocated to new state-of-the-art facilities in Sao Paulo’s Tatuapé district, and sold several old flexo/letterpress presses in the process. Now the company has three Nilpeter FB-presses for all flexo label requirements, three digital presses, and an ABG converting line.

“We expect to see a 100% production capacity increase, and, most importantly, to reduce our production costs, thanks to the high press speeds and fast change-overs”, Marcos Rossi says. “Selecting a printing partner is a long-term strategic decision, and we are very pleased with our choice of Nilpeter. The level of service provided throughout the process by Nilpeter Brazil has been outstanding”, he concludes.
