Control Group adds third Nilpeter press to production lineup

PKBR Staff Writer Published 07 March 2017

Control Group, a US-based provider of printed packaging solutions, has installed a new Nilpeter press to boost its label and flexible packaging production capacity.

The company invested in Nilpeter’s 22-inch FA-6* press, which will complement its existing Nilpeter’s FA-Line and a 16-inch FG servo press, to achieve an even higher quality of label and flexible packaging production.

Control Group offers specialized printed packaging solutions for customers in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, nutraceutical, cosmetics, and personal care markets.

Control Group COO Jim Imburgia said: “Our first purchase was the 16-inch FG servo press. Being the first press built in that product line we expected to have some issues, but true to the Nilpeter name it was installed, and we were producing within a week.

“Having 13 colors, rotary screen, movable towers, and die-cutting, this press really raised the bar and made us stand out from the competition.”

Purchased during the recently held LabelExpo Americas 2016 event, the 22-inch FA-6* press features Clean-Hand Technology, which is said to be perfect for evolving workforce and product innovation, Imburgia added.

The 22-inch FA-6* is expected to allow Control Group to take their production and product offerings to another level, the company said.

Nilpeter USA sales and marketing vice-president Paul Teachout said: “The innovation they offer to the printing industry sets the bar for the future of dynamic packaging solutions.”

The Nilpeter FA-6* flexographic press features a Nilpeter Cleaninking System and a Nilpeter Powerlink control system.
