Cambridge Label of Cambridge, Ontario, has acquired a new FA flexo press from Nilpeter. Described as the largest printer of trade labels in Canada, Cambridge Label manufactures custom printed labels in quantities from 100 up to several million, specializing in work for food and beverage, health and beauty, household products, industrial products, nutraceutical and pharmaceutical, as well as medical facilities.


“We strive to deliver in three to five days. In this business everyone wants it yesterday, and the quicker, you can deliver, the better,” said Terry Sinclair, President and Owner of Cambridge Label. “In order to deliver a high quality product quickly and consistently, you need to invest in the best equipment possible.”


The company’s machine from Nilpeter, which the press maker brands as the All New FA, is an automated 8-colour, 17-inch-wide press equipped with full UV. The FA press design allows printers to enhance the performance of their press with Value-Adding Units, Application and Automation Packages.

“We were drawn to the FA because of its efficiency and improved print quality,” said Terry Sinclair. “We anticipate we will be able to nearly double our print speeds, while also drastically decrease our press setup times. These time savings will translate into more competitive pricing for our customers, allowing us to win more long-run jobs.”

Sinclair also highlights how well the FA registers at high speeds, which enables the company to more efficiently produce technically challenging labels. “We currently have a high-quality digital label press, and matching the digital print quality on our existing flexo presses while also maintaining efficiency, has proven challenging at times,” he said. “We don’t foresee that challenge anymore given the capabilities of the new FA.”
