Scottish converter CV Labels has announced the installation of a Nilpeter FB-2500 UV flexo press at its plant in Irvine, south-west Scotland.
Configured with six UV flexo units, plus hot-air dryers, die-cutting module, laminating unit and a turner bar to aid reverse-side printing, the Nilpeter FB-2500 UV has a speed of 228 m/minute and is meant for paper and filmic labels and packaging materials production.
According to the company, the press joins a new AB Graphic Omega 330 slitter rewinder equipped with a 100% web inspection camera, as well as an existing Omega slitter rewinder with die-cutter and Domino inkjet encoding printer.
CV Labels managing director Bob Veitch said the system is fully modular with a range of add-ons and will help the company to plan future production options.
‘This is our first Nilpeter press and we have been impressed with its trouble-free installation and current performance," Veitch said.
CV Labels specializes in printing pressure-sensitive labels for pharmaceutical and medical products and doubled its production area to 1,300m² recently.
