President Herberto Pachon tells us what's new at Nipson

Published on May 13, 2011

President of Nipson Herberto Pachon gives Cary Sherburne an update on the company's advancements with their latest generation of presses.

Cary Sherburne: Hi, I’m Cary Sherburne, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here with Herberto Pachon from Nipson

Herberto Pachon: Hello Cary

Cary: It’s good to see you

Herberto: Thank you; likewise

Cary: You know we would like to learn a little bit more about what’s going on new with Nipson these days. We haven’t covered you a lot; that’s our fault. We’ll have to fix that. But maybe you can kind of give us an update on what’s going on at Nipson these days

Herberto: Thank you very much. Thank you for the invitation. Well Nispon, we have been focused on development and new generation of high speed monochrome presses and we have introduced since last year some new features to those presses in terms of speed, in terms of the ability of managing a wider range of substrates. We are showing an application with very thin paper, 40gsn, which is from our pharmaceutical application. And also

Cary: Oh yeah, for labeling for pharmaceutical

Herberto: Pharmaceutical labels

Cary: Yeah

Herberto: Correct. And also we are also showcasing printing our paper board, 250gsm

Cary: Alright

Herberto: And these are the type of applications that we go after in the US market. We focus primarily on tagging labels, print on demand and direct mail and what we call special applications which is where you require special features in the printing. We also introduced in the end of last year a UV toner. This is a toner that can – it’s a fluorescent toner and fluorescent with the UV light and we’re getting some interest in some customer for security printing applications or for gaming applications

Cary: Oh for gaming, okay

Herberto: Yes. So and both of those features are available, both of our current presses, the DIGIFlex which can run up to 300 feet per minute and also the VaryPRESS which can run up to 500 feet per minute

Cary: Now the VaryPRESS has also been used for some book applications

Herberto: Yes

Cary: And newspaper applications

Herberto: No, primarily book print which we call print on demand

Cary: Print on demand, okay

Herberto: We have some customers in the US using it for that because of the speed and because of the uniqueness of printing on a wide range of substrates. For example, this would be a good application but others are printing on recyclable paper. For example that’s because of the economies and you can also print on the recycle paper which is being cost efficient in the US

Cary: So what’s been the reception to some of the stuff you’re showing?

Herberto: Well so far so good. We’ve had several customers from the US come to our booth and also customers from Latin America, from Brazil, from Chile, Mexico, trying to understand more where these features fit in their future in the print application and the future applications. So, two days and counting.

Cary: That’s great. Well thank you very much.

Herberto: Thank you Cary. Thank you for the invitation.
