Competing in the ‘short-run, highly embellished space’ – Miguel Alemao, CEO of Cork Supply Australia & Studio Labels.

Award-winning Adelaide wine label printer Studio Labels has expanded its short-run production capabilities with an advanced Nilpeter FA-4* flexographic press.

In addition to increased capacity, the FA-4* adds inline flatbed foiling and embossing with the FP-4 and QC-Die value-adding units – a big factor for Miguel Alemao, CEO of Cork Supply Australia & Studio Labels.

“Flatbed systems are commonplace nowadays, but more frequent on offset presses or offline finishing lines,” says Alemao. “You don’t see many fitted on new, top of the range flexo presses – I dare to say none in Australia. Combining a state-of-the-art flexo press with an FP-system will allow us to compete in the short run, highly embellished space typically associated with digital printing.”

Alemao was delighted with the support he received from Nilpeter. “The whole commercial process was excellent – they did a terrific job, ticking all the right boxes. We expect and hope for that to continue.”

Erik Blankenstein, sales director at Nilpeter Asia Pacific, welcomed the partnership. “We are, of course, very pleased. Studio Labels is a reference in the Australian wine label market, and their investment in the FA-4* is a testament to the quality and performance of this press. We are delighted with the partnership thus far, and I have great faith that our Australian Customer Care team will continue to build on this going forward.”

Founded in 2004, Studio Labels is one of Australia’s leading wine label printers and at the forefront of global flexographic printing technology. In 2011, the company won the best label award at the 2011 World Label Awards.
