Flint Group: Investment in a new press to drive ink developments
SWEDEN. The company’s »Narrow Web Products« division has made the strategic decision to invest in a new Nilpeter combination printing press – a new fourth generation MO-4 offset combined with FA-4 flexo printing heads for water- and UV-based flexo inks – to be situated in the company’s Centre of Technical Excellence in Trelleborg.
The platform technology enables inline screen printing and cold foiling and UV lamination – and inline converting. It was also agreed to update the existing letterpress equipment.
Said Guillaume Clement , Global Business Director Narrow Web, »Flint Group has a strong commitment to continue to invest in its Narrow Web segment – today and in the future. This new press is another step to further develop this growing, and key market segment for us. This new press is mostly dedicated to accelerating new product and business development in Europe, Middle East, Africa, India and Asia with a special focus on pressuresensitive, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging segments«.
