“It was natural for us to go to Nilpeter. With its facilities just 45 minutes away, we can count on quick reliable service if need be, and more importantly, we were blown away by the capabilities of the new FA,” said Henrik Sahlberg, managing director, Primoreels A/S. “With the new press, we are future-proof in terms of capacity and technology – job change time is cut from 90 minutes to less than 10, we can insource previously outsourced jobs, enhance quality for our existing customer database, and approach exciting new markets and industry leaders.”
Primoreels’ new FA is a 9-color, 17’’ flexo press with a double die-cutting unit. The press is configured with three Nilpeter Automation and Application Packages: The Film Package, the Progressive Print Package, and the Automatic Register Package. Three of the printing units are fitted with color pumps to speed-up the flow and output on the more frequently used colors. Once installed in July 2018, Primoreels will produce sealable lids on a range of flexible substrates – mainly PP and PET plastic with integrated barriers and pure thin foils (23-36 my).
