The first public event to underscore the partnership between the two companies will be at INFOFLEX May 6-7, in New Orleans, LA. Screen Americas' sales and management representatives will be on hand in the Nilpeter exhibit in Booth #237 working closely with Nilpeter USA toward highlighting the flexo/digital label solutions and combined technology support that the Panorama line affords converters in North America.
The Panorama one-source go-to-market program presented by the partners includes market evaluation, utilization analyses, ROI data consulting, sales, service and supplies. It taps Nilpeter’s 100-year heritage of service within the packaging industry for narrow web flexo printing, manufacturing and converting solutions while taking full measure of Screen’s 150-year history of scanning, prepress workflow, color reproduction and print-on-demand, digital inkjet solutions development.
The Panorama product line consists of Nilpeter flexo units, Screen digital inkjet presses and Nilpeter converting solutions that can be configured to fit customer needs – all inline, all from the Nilpeter and Screen coalition. Panorama can operate as a standalone digital press solution, as a combined digital press and converting solution and as a hybrid that integrates flexo units, the digital press and converting solutions.
Both Nilpeter and Screen serve industries in transition from an older world of conventional analog production to next generation, Clean Hand manufacturing and production. “The narrow web flexo market has experienced healthy growth for some time, but we know the same business pressures that we’ve seen impact other print markets are affecting the packaging industry as well,” says Ken Ingram, president, Screen Americas.
Lenny DeGirolmo, president/managing director for Nilpeter USA, adds, “Our customers have one foot in two worlds. They’re serving customers who have built brands on 30 years of analog print methods and yet they need to help them meet the challenge of next generation problems: faster time to market, late stage customization and SKU proliferation.”
Over the last several years, Nilpeter has made significant investments in advanced machine manufacturing to improve quality, increase efficiencies and shrink delivery times to market.
