Etiflex A/S, Nilpeter partner for more than 15 years, has acquired a new FA-22 to increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness in their label production, and to add new filmic and carton products to the portfolio. This is the Danish company’s third Nilpeter printing press, in addition to their FB-4200 and FA-4.
Etiflex A/S was founded in 1973 on the pillars of quality, innovation, and delivery assurance. Today, Etiflex is one of the most important players in the Nordic region producing a high volume of labels and flexible packaging for customers such as Carlsberg, Velux, Tican, and more. “We’ve worked with Nilpeter since 2005, and to be frank, there’s no denying of their impact; having a stable, high quality press is probably the most import part of our business,” says Brian Sandgaard, Technical Director and Partner, Etiflex A/S.
”The pandemic has affected everyone, us included, but Nilpeter actually managed to install the FA-22 in the start of December, at the height of the second wave, by adhering to all restrictions and guidelines. They have been extremely helpful,” Brian Sandgaard continues. ”A very successful installation by the way – the press has run perfectly since day 1! With self-adhesive labels, monofilms, and carton,” Brian Sandgaard concludes, before leaving the door open for new Nilpeter equipment in the future, ”We just bought one, however, business is good, so who knows.”
”The new FA-22 is incredibly easy to operate. It goes into register in seconds and stays there no matter what material is in the press, and at any speed. I really enjoy operating this piece of equipment,” says Jesper Nielsen, Printer & Team Leader, Etiflex A/S.
The FA-22 is the perfect fit for an ambitious printer like Etiflex. The press is designed to accommodate the printer’s ever-growing needs and built around the modern printing operator, with an intuitive user interface and fully mobile print controls. A benchmark of flexibility and modularity, the FA allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with a high level of automation. Last but not least, all main components are produced in-house at Nilpeter in Denmark and the United States, meaning higher production quality and control.
“Despite everything going on we were able to conduct both remote and in-person meetings, tests, and training, of course following all health guidelines and policies put into place by both companies,” says Jesper Jørgensen, Global Sales Manager, Nilpeter A/S. “We’ve established a great partnership with Etiflex over the years, and we’re delighted to see it grow,” Jesper Jørgensen concludes.
