Nilpeter calls Bogota Open House a 'tremendous success'

May 28, 2014

Participants from ten countries gathered at Impresos & Acabados following Label Summit Latin America.

Following Label Summit Latin America in Medellin, Colombia, Bogota-based converter Impresos & Acabados opened its doors to 70 printers invited by Nilpeter. With participants from Colombia, Paraguay, Ecuador, Chile, Uruguay, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and Argentina, it was the first time that an event of this magnitude was held in Colombia.

On display was the Nilpeter eight-colour FB-3300S roll-to-roll flexo press equipped with hot air dryers, four UV-lamps, a double in-feed system, corona treater, and suction web cleaner.
According to Nilpeter, converters witnessed an impeccable demonstration of inline production of coffee boxes and multiple-substrate coupon labels. “Our flexo presses allow the printer to reach completely new segments”, says Jesper Joergensen, global sales manager at Nilpeter. “It was exiting to sense the enthusiasm at the event. No doubt, these types of packaging and label applications could help many of the converters gain a competitive advantage."

“Just a year after our investment in a Nilpeter FB-3300S, we won the 2013 Best of Flexography Labels Award," says Impresos & Acabados General Manager Fernando Herrera. “I believe that we have proven that it is entirely possible to make the leap from sheet-fed offset to roll-to-roll flexo. In our case, the flexo press has allowed us to expand our market reach by adding coupon labels and wrap-around carton to our capabilities. The press is constantly fully booked!"
