The Hooven-Dayton Corporation (HDC) announced that it has invested in a Nilpeter FB-4200 Servo Printing Press – an advanced, narrow-web, 10-color, UV and conven­tional, flexo press with a 16-inch web width. Nilpeter built this press to ensure superior print quality, maxi­mum efficiency and low waste. This press increases HDC’s capabilities by providing fine tension control for unsupported films, allowing for a range of substrate thickness that range from very thin (.001 inch/25 micron), to very heavy (.010 inch/250 micron). It is also equipped with an automatic electronic register system and a chill roll system. The addition of this new press brings the number of flexo and digital presses at HDC to eleven. The press will be installed at the Hooven-Dayton Corporation this month.

“We are very excited to add the unsupported thin film capability to Hooven-Dayton’s offerings. This ena­bles us to address the fast-growing demand for shrink sleeves. Our customers benefit from our ability to produce the high-quality graphics and 360° decoration that shrink sleeves offer,” says Jeff Spahr, Hooven-Dayton director of operations. “This new press expands our capacity, improves our productivity, and allows us to continue to provide our customers with multiple printing solutions. By combining the best of each of our processes, we pass the advantages of exceptional print quality, lower production costs, and fast turn around time on to our customers. We believe that sets us apart from our competitors.”

“Huntington National Bank and the Community Capital Development Corporation were instrumental in securing financing for the new press. Community Capital Development Corp. facilitated securing partial financing from the U.S. Small Business Association. The SBA 504 loan carries a longer term and a lower interest rate than conventional lending institutions.” explains Steve Hill, HDC corporate controller, “This is good for both HDC and Dayton: this new acquisition creates five new press-operater positions, for which Hooven-Dayton is now actively recruiting.”
