“Our primary focus is on manufacturing high quality products while providing superior customer service, and fast on-time delivery,” says Terry Sinclair, President and Owner of Cambridge Label. “We strive to deliver in 3-5 days. In this business everyone wants it yesterday, and the quicker, you can deliver, the better. In order to deliver a high quality product quickly and consistently, you need to invest in the best equipment possible.”
This business model perfectly suits Cambridge Label’s latest investment into The All New FA flexo press from Nilpeter. The All New FA is an innovative press designed and manufactured for the modern press operator. With intuitive operations and high automation, the FA is the ideal solution for consistent and repeatable manufacturing of high quality products. The fully automated 8-colour 17-inch wide press is equipped with full UV and a wealth of value-added features. The FA allows CambridgeLabel to continue serving existing customers more efficiently, while creating new application opportunities.
Deanne Sinclair, GM and owner of Cambridge Label, joined packagePRINTING to discuss the impact the press has had on the company.
“We were drawn to the FA because of its efficiency and improved print quality. 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,” says Terry Sinclair.
“In addition, the FA registers amazingly well at high speeds, allowing us to print the most technically challenging labels efficiently. We currently have a high quality digital label press, and matching the digital print quality on our existing flexo pressesm while also maintaining efficiency, has proven challenging at times. We don’t foresee that challenge anymore given the capabilities of the new FA,” he continues.
“Nilpeter has always been a good supplier to us, offering timely support and advice whenever needed. We are excited to take this innovative step forward with Nilpeter at our side,” Terry Sinclair concludes.
“It has been a great partnership with Cambridge right from the start. They were very clear on the direction they needed to go in, and we felt we were in a great position to support their current and future needs. We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship” says Bob Loescher, Nilpeter Northeastern Sales Manager.
