According to Phipps, hard-working employees and loyal customers have been the key to growing the business into its current 35,000 square foot facility that houses six high-performance presses, versatile finishing equipment and the latest in digital printing technology. The new FA press will be a welcome addition, he says.
“We were looking to continue our growth pattern, which required us to increase our capacity and efficiency, and provide more flexibility in our product offerings. After we saw the new FA perform for the first time, we knew exactly what we needed to do,” says Phipps. ”Right from the start of the Nilpeter factory tour, we could see how this press was different. With the automated machining centers producing one-piece steel modules all at once, this press is just built different, and it shows. The level of performance and efficiency is exactly what we were looking for. The FA’s make-ready times are reduced so much through the job save and recall functions and the one piece inking system provides the absolute fastest setup times. This press will change the way we can deliver to our customers and keep us one step ahead of their needs."
The all-new FA press is Nilpeter’s latest offering from the FA-Line. Providing clean-hand operations through wireless controls and a sophisticated Industry 4.0 automated setup. The FA is a next generation platform meeting the ever-growing needs of the modern press operator – offered in multiple levels of automation and production requirements. The FA is tailored to meet the printer’s exact needs for today and can be enhanced later on with add-on application and automation packages.
