NCL Graphic Specialties Makes Major Investment in Flexible Packaging Markets
NCL Graphic Specialties has announced that in order to meet the needs of its current flexible consumer packaged goods customers and prospective customers, the company has invested in a Uteco Onyx XS central impression flexographic press. The Uteco Onyx XS coupled with NCL’s Nordmeccanica solventless laminators, and new Atlas Titan ER610 rewinders will deliver world-class state of the art technology, print quality, quick makeready and high-speed production. This most recent investment, along with NCL’s current status as the market leader in the cut and stack paper label market, allows NCL to offer vertical supply chain management to existing clients and new clients across many packaging substrates.
The Onyx XS central impression flexographic printing press represents Uteco's state of the art offering to the printing industry. Equipped with Direct Drive Evo technology, it features unmatchable print quality, easy operation and extremely fast job changes. To ensure optimum dot quality, Uteco developed Direct Drive Evo technology, its true, patent protected, direct drive technology. The CI drum and the plate sleeve mandrels are flanged directly into their drive motors ensuring that dot quality is not compromised. PCT and PTC technologies are used to enhance print operation during press operation.
NCL Graphic Specialties has been privately owned and operated for 50 years, and is based in Waukesha and Menomonee Falls, Wisc., with two production facilities and over 150 full-time employees. NCL has served the consumer packaged goods industry supplying over 6 billion printed cut stack paper labels for the wet-pack canned industry, and as a premium and promotional print producer supplying their CPG customers with on-pack coupons, in-pack promotions and other promotional printed products.
