SCOTLAND • Scottish label manufacturer CV Labels has invested in a second Nilpeter FB-2500 UV-flexo press, in just eighteen months, to keep up with the demand for self-adhesive labels from its pharmaceutical customer base. CV Labels also has increasing demand from other sectors, including the food and drinks industry.

The configuration of the new press includes six UV flexo units, hot air dryers, a die-cutting module, a laminating unit, and a turn bar to facilitate reverse-side cutting. The Nilpeter has a top speed of 228 m/min (750 ft/min). Having two Nilpeter FB-2500 presses, the company claims it can now keep up with the demand for pressure sensitive label production from its pharmaceutical, medical, and electronics clients.

Bob Veitch established CV Labels in 1989. He identified the customer opportunities best suited to his team’s skills, such as specialised substrates, security inks, and encoded labels for blood transfusion bags. The company also supplies sterilization labels with colour changing inks, syringe labels and cryogenic products for liquid nitrogen freezing. CV Labels are the only Scottish label manufacturer to attain the coveted P.S. 9000:2011 pharmaceutical quality certified supplier status.
