Having worked with Pharmaceutical, Medical, and Healthcare labeling solutions for more than 30 years, CV labels is very well aware of the high standards they need to deliver the best solutions to their customers. Investing in state-of-the-art technology is a key component of the company’s strategy. This rimes well to world-class engineering with Danish roots and Nilpeter.

The FB-350 is an ideal choice for CV Labels and is specialized in printing pressure-sensitive labels for pharmaceutical and medical products. The new press is a 7-color flexo press with a number of value-added features customized for CV Labels. One of the features is an inserter making it possible to create multi-page peel and read labels using different substrates. The FB-350 with this exact configuration, is the first of its kind on an FB-press in the UK.

Bob Veitch, owner and MD, CV Labels, says, “We have always been very pleased with the Nilpeter presses we have had so for us it was an obvious choice to add another one to our production line. Our business is growing, and we needed more volume and more colors. We got that with our new FB-350. The new press gives us a number of new opportunities, and especially making it possible to create multi-page peel and read labels has been a valuable contribution."

Some of the value-added features of the FB-350 for CV Labels are UV-curing, the latest version, rail system and rail-based auxiliaries, de/re-lamination, a turnbar, re-register unit for preprinted webs, video inspection, and standard die stations.
