Traco Packaging of Orem, Utah has installed a new 10-colour Nilpeter FA-17 flexo press, its first from the Danish printing press manufacturer.

Traco Packaging, a division of Traco Manufacturing, is a manufacturing company and importer of packaging equipment and shrink film products. The company specialises in the production of pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, and flexible packaging for nutraceutical, CBD, and beverage markets, amongst others.

The Nilpeter FA-17 has been identified as ‘a perfect fit’ for Traco’s production of pressure-sensitive labels, shrink sleeves, and flexible packaging, as Gary Whitehead, the company’s print and pre-press manager, explained.

‘The new Nilpeter press fits perfectly into our portfolio, right in that sweet spot between our 13in digital presses and our wider flexo presses. From a technical standpoint, and on quality, we’ve been very impressed with what Nilpeter has to offer. To be honest, we’ve always looked for an excuse to get a Nilpeter press, so when the opportunity presented itself, we jumped at the chance.’

He continued, ‘We’re looking forward to a great relationship with Nilpeter. Its ability to stay on schedule in this environment has been nothing short of amazing. The company has kept its promises, and that just goes to show what a quality company it is in terms of technical ability, manufacturing, and planning.’
