At this year’s Labelexpo in Delhi, Nilpeter plans to showcase a highly configured and feature-packed FB-3300 servo press. The 6-colour UV-flexo press with short web path features novelties such as a gravure unit at the last printing unit—a value-adding unit for metallic inks, solids, and coatings— and a new rail-based cross-over unit that can be placed above any printing unit for total flexibility.
The press is also equipped with the Corona treater, web cleaner, chill drums on all units, movable cold foil, Automatic Plate Positioning System (APPS), two die slots, and a 100% inspection system.
The FB-3300S produces pressure-sensitive labels with cold foil as well as metallic gold ink printed in gravure. Nilpeter will also demonstrate 2-ply coupon labels, as well as printing shrink sleeves getting converted with shrinkable cold foil with the last white printed in gravure.
When maximum efficiency and low production costs are key, the FB-3300 is the answer. The narrow-web press is based on modular flexo technology for easy configuration. The FB-3300 includes screen and hot foil drop-in features that help increase printing options at affordable prices.
The maximum web speed of 750 ft. per minute makes the FB-3300 one of the fastest in the narrow-web industry. The press is loaded with features such as the convenient splicing table with pneumatic hold down bars, ergonomic slide-out print stations, easy-to-use operator interface and advanced die-cutting and drying systems.
With consistent ink transfer across a wide range of densities, and at high speeds, gravure is suitable for applications that require high image quality. Durable printing cylinders make the gravure unit an ideal solution for high-quality print on long and repetitive runs. The unit features adjustable doctor blades, an ink-circulation system, viscosity control, and a drying and vacuum system. Operator safety is ensured by the integrated ventilation system. The versatile gravure unit is prepared for both frontand reverse-side printing, and offers quick job-change and setup.
