OPM invests in two Nilpeter presses

OPM Labels & Packaging Group (OPM) has announced that it is investing in two new fully automated Nilpeter FA22 presses to support its accelerated growth in Europe and the United States.

A 22-inch 12-colour FA line Nilpeter machine will be installed at the company’s factory in Leeds, UK, in July 2022, incorporating hot air drying, UV LED drying and in-line solvent lamination. The investment is designed to support the growth of the company’s short and medium run flexible packaging business, as well as its phenomenal success in the multi-layer peel and read labels segment.

Chris Ellison, Managing Director of OPM, said, “We are seeing tremendous demand for our intelligent indexed multi-layer label design, Multi Dex. This innovative labeling solution gives designers the ability to communicate comprehensive information about a package in a concise manner. With increasing pressure on brands to find smart ways to integrate legal, health and safety requirements on packaging for compliance, Multi Dex is proving particularly popular in the health, nutrition and nutrition sectors. and beauty with its unique structure offering multiple faces that the designer can use without compromising durability or graphic quality. »

The second fully automated press, a 10-color Nilpeter FA22, will be installed in the United States in the second half of 2022, allowing OPM to further meet demand for its patented TLC label closure system in North American manufacturing sectors. hygiene and wipes.

Ellison continues: “We are a European market leader in providing wet wipes packaging solutions thanks to the development of our European and US patent TLC – Thicker Label Closure. TLC replaces the need for rigid flap closure systems giving brands a lighter closure solution that can be printed to match their brand colors.

“TLC retains moisture throughout the product life cycle, which increases consumer satisfaction, is less expensive and is applied at higher speeds, which improves the energy and production efficiency of conditioners. With sustainability being a key issue in the wipes market, TLC also offers a lower carbon footprint, improves packaging recyclability and can be manufactured with recycled content. So we are seeing significant demand from the United States for this innovation and its only right is to commit to producing locally to ensure that we can maintain the customer service and sourcing standards our customers recognize us for.
