NCLPS installs Colordyne Retrofit to meet customization demands
29 July 2017
New Creation Labels and Packaging (NCLPS) has installed Colordyne Technologies’ aqueous retrofit solution, 3600 Series AQ – Retrofit, at its headquarters in Atlanta to meet the needs for shorter runs and customization from its customers.
NCLPS, a solutions provider of labels, tickets and tags, chose the 3600 Series AQ – Retrofit to create customized reserved seat tickets for high school football games.
High-resolution images of the teams’ players, and mascot and branding of the schools will be printed on the tickets. As the data for individual seat and game information varies, no two tickets will be identical.
NCLPS will also be able to add water-based digital inkjet printing capabilities to the existing web handling system. The hybrid printing allows converters to produce four-color CMYK digitally, and spot colors, cold foiling and finishing with the web handling equipment.
The 3600 Series AQ – Retrofit offers the benefit of easy integration, due to which existing operator can continue to run the press.
NCLPS also uses the 3600 Series AQ – Retrofit to attract new short-run label customers and start-ups, which require world-class short-run labels, but without huge costs.
With the installation of 3600 Series AQ – Retrofit, NCLPS can serve short-run markets and produce personalized and variable data applications more efficiently.
NCLPS owner Robin Houston said: “Not going digital wasn’t an option. We evaluated multiple press options, including several hybrid presses, but we found the 3600 Series Retrofit met our production volume needs at an affordable price point. Plus, it allows us to use all of our current finishing assets in-line by mounting to our current flexo press."
Colordyne president and CEO Gary Falconbridge said: “NCLPS has embraced this new technology and, in doing so, has been successful in transitioning current customers, as well as securing new clients requiring low-volume printing and customization."
