ProfiLabel, an ICS Group company based in Germany, has installed a Nilpeter FA-Line which it says will ‘add another important building block’ to its ongoing growth strategy. The company, which was founded 1984, is installing the new press at its Wiehl site in the Sauerland region. 

With the latest generation FA-Line, which has been developed specifically to offer customers ‘optimum efficiency combined with the highest possible quality,’ Nilpeter says that it has succeeded in providing ‘an innovative answer to market demands for shorter set-up times, smaller batch sizes, and an easy-to-use press with many possible combinations.’

‘We are very happy to have ProfiLabel as a part of the Nilpeter family, and look forward to working with them in the future,’ said Nilpeter’s Thorsten Saathoff. ‘Through intensive tests and user visits, we were able to convince Karsten Jung and his ProfiLabel team that the Nilpeter FA-Line was the right choice.’

Numerous functions are automated on the press. For example, automatic cleaning functions are stored for the anilox roller and the impression cylinder, which run before they are unlocked. All covers of the printing units can be opened individually or simultaneously with servo control.

Furthermore, the press automatically saves the data of individual jobs, meaning they are then available for repeat jobs. With the help of this data, the press automatically prepares settings for the next job. Nilpeter believes that this intelligent technology ‘enables an extremely simple operating concept.’
