Nipson Increases Efficiency, Expands Capabilities For Variable Data Label Printers

Press release from the issuing company

(Elk Grove Village, IL)  September 16, 2004 – Nipson’s full line of digital production printers offer the label industry a unique solution for printing variable data on a wide range of substrates.  With Nipson’s VaryPress 400, label printers can integrate digital printing with traditional high-speed flexographic and offset presses for a complete roll-to-roll solution.   This unique set of benefits builds business for label printers by increasing efficiency and adding higher overall value to their product offering. Nipson presses feature unique cold flash toner fusing, an extremely flexible non-heat technology that enables printing on practically any substrate, from the most fragile 14lb bond to heavy 140lb tag stock as well as thin to heavy gauge films and foils.  This non-heat fusing technology virtually eliminates distortion, tearing or peeling of pressure-sensitive labels.  Nipson’s entire line of printers features 600 dpi quality, ideal for high density and 2D barcodes.     Nipson’s family of digital production presses ranges from the Nipson 1865 compact printer to the high-volume VaryPress 200 and 400, both introduced at DRUPA earlier this year.  Nipson is demonstrating the 1865 printer at LabelExpo 2004, booth 6112. “Nipson is an ideal partner for efficiently integrating variable data into any label production operation,” said Alfons Buts, managing director of Nipson Digital Printing Systems PLC.  “Today we offer benefits to a full range of label printing customers: from the low-to-mid-volume Nipson 1865, ideal for proofing and short production runs, to the VaryPress 200 and 400, ideal for high-volume printing and integration with traditional printing methods.” Nipson digital printers are used widely throughout the label printing industry, including many VaryPress installations printing directly inline with high-speed flexographic and offset presses.  This type of installation allows organizations such as the United States Postal Service and R. R. Donnelly to integrate high-quality, black and white variable printed barcodes and alphanumeric copy directly into offset and flexographic documents. (Nipson will demonstrate this hybrid capability at GraphExpo in October 2004 with a Muller Martini Concepta offset press.)
