The FA-26 is the widest flexo press Nilpeter has ever developed. Designed to print with water-based and solvent inks, with UV, LED, and E-beam processes – in any combination – the FA-26 has been engineered for short-run flexible packaging. The press is optimized for pouches and sachets to wraparounds, shrink sleeves, labels and more.
The FA-26 is fully sleeve-based, both for anilox and plate rollers, with a closed ink chamber system. This construction, combined with the new landscape design, ensures high-quality printing and production performance.
”We are very excited with the purchase of this new state-of-the-art, mid-web flexographic press, which is scheduled to be up-and-running by the end of August,” says Mark Gaw, vice president and general manager, Chromatic Labels. ”The FA-26 will enable us to improve our response times on existing business as well as offer new solutions. The purchase of the new equipment required more space, so we have moved into an impressive, new 35,000 square-foot manufacturing facility one half mile from our previous location. We appreciate our long relationships with all of our customers and suppliers and expect these relationships to improve, as we have better resources to support everyone."
"By investing in the new FA-26, Chromatic has put themselves on the leading edge of manufacturing capabilities for flexible packaging,” says John Crammer, sales consultant, Nilpeter USA. “The FA-26 was designed from the ground up for quick-change and high-speed capabilities with inline lamination. With top speeds of 820 fpm, and 2-3 minute print station changeovers, this truly is a game-changer for the mid-web market.
“With a full 26" web width, this addition to Chromatic’s Nilpeter-based platform gives them the ability to significantly expand their offerings to their customer base. We, at Nilpeter, appreciate the trust Chromatic has put in us in choosing their printing partner," Crammer adds.
