Nilpeter is set to launch a new digital label press at the upcoming LabelExpo show this Autumn. The Panorama press uses a Nilpeter DP-3 print engine, which is in fact a rebadged Screen L350UV label press. This uses a greyscale inkjet printhead with UV ink in CMYK+white. It can produce up to 50mpm with a 600 dpi resolution.
Nilpeter has developed integrated finishing to produce a complete line. For now this includes varnishing, die cutting smart waste handling and multi-roll rewinding. But Nilpeter has said that it will add other features such as hot foiling and embossing.
Naturally, it uses Screen’s Equios workflow, which is the same system that Screen uses on its own digital presses, including the L350UV label press. However, Screen won’t be taking on the Nilpeter finishing , opting to continue to sell its own Jet Converter finishing option, which is itself built by AB Graphics.
