St-Hubert, Quebec-based Profecta Labels has purchased a Nilpeter FB-3300 13-inch UV flexo press. Founded in 1992, the company has grown to become one of Quebec’s larger label producers, serving Canada and the United States.
“The purchase of the Nilpeter FB-3300 will bridge the print quality gap between the Indigo and flexo printing processes enabling Profecta to offer existing and new clients new products," said Sylvain Linguin, Product Manager at Profecta Labels.
The Nilpeter FB-3300 has a maximum web speed of 750 linear feet per minute. Profecta’s press has a register control system designed to handle complex images and designs using process colours or PMS with white and foil effects.
“Thanks to the high running speeds and fast change-overs, we expect to reduce our production costs while offering top-quality printing to our customers,” said Profecta’s owner Pierre Robege.
In April of 2012, during the Profecta’s 20th year in operation, the company installed an HP Indigo WS6600 web-fed press.
