Our Partnership began when IKONPRINT took a digital leap by becoming the first Danish printer to buy and install the new Nilpeter digital UV-InkJet product line, PANORAMA. The move was a direct result of an increased number of incoming orders, and thus an urgent need to expand production capacity.
As you may remember, the first test runs made during IKONPRINT’s acquisition of the PANORAMA were of such high quality that they decided to skip further testing and jump straight into the production of two customer orders – namely the production of around 500,000 wristbands for Bakken Amusement Park near Copenhagen, Denmark and the labels for Braunstein’s Organic Easter Beer.
IKONPRINT CEO Thomas Nielsen thoroughly examined the market for UV-InkJet digital presses before choosing Nilpeter’s PANORAMA.
”Besides the obvious advantages of having a supplier close to our facilities, the high print quality, high uptime, and smart workflow made it an easy decision for us. And we are free – there are no special productions charges and we can choose the web width most suitable for the individual job,” Thomas Nielsen explains. ”It is crucial for us that the print is durable, water and fade resistant – and that’s exactly what the PANORAMA product line delivers.”
“Working with Thomas Nielsen and the IKONPRINT team has been an absolute pleasure,” says Nilpeter Sales & Marketing Director Jakob Landberg, “which is why we also invited them to speak at our recent Nordic Innovation Day, where 45 label converters from the Nordic countries attended to gain insight into current topics such as multi-layer labels, low migration inks, and LED flexo printing,” he concludes.
Besides the previously mentioned Bakken Amusement Park wristbands and Braustein beer labels, IKONPRINT’s PANORAMA digital press has produced labels for industrial coating and paints, wine & spirits, as well as cosmetics.
