This latest installation means the Group now uses 12 PRATI inspection and finishing systems at its three production sites.

Nuceria Adesivi employs 150 staff and specializes in self-adhesive labels, water-adhesive labels, and folding cartons and boxes.

Quality control on a wide range of materials
The JUPITER TC280 ensures a top-quality finished product. It can handle a wide range of materials at high speed, including self-adhesive labels, flexible packaging, cardboard, laminates, multi-page labels and other sensitive materials.

Outstanding label quality is guaranteed by the VARYCONTROL program, which offers total control for managing three different types of rewinding tension: constant on the axis for self-adhesive labels, constant on the web for flexible materials, and mixed for special jobs.

"The quality control afforded by PRATI inspection machines is very impressive," says Guido Iannone, Plant Manager at Nuceria Adesivi's San Giuliano Milanese site. "They're also extremely easy to use and very reliable - which is essential for an operation as busy as ours. Plus the low maintenance costs mean we'll see a faster return on our investment. Another important aspect for us is that the different models of PRATI inspection machines have very similar user interfaces. This means it's no problem to move operators to different machines when needed."

A trusted partner for a growing company
Nuceria Adesivi Group has grown at a rate of 20% per year over the past two years. It expects to close 2010 with a turnover of around 28million Euro, 40% of which coming from foreign markets. Iannone adds: "The industry is getting back on its feet after the downturn in 2008. We were able to weather the financial storm because we offset the decline in domestic orders by attracting lots of international customers. We've established a very strong platform for growth and are now focusing on further diversifying our product portfolio and entering new markets.”

A company growing at the rate of Nuceria Adesivi needs dependable suppliers like PRATI: "For us, strong support from our suppliers is vital. Prati continually delivers innovative solutions that are cost effective, and enable us to increase productivity and achieve outstanding quality.”

Targeting international markets
Nuceria Adesivi Group plans to boost revenue by forging new commercial relationships with foreign companies. Iannone says: "With profit margins decreasing, it's imperative to respond to increase volume.. Partnering with like-minded businesses is an excellent way to cost-effectively drive revenue."

Nuceria Adesivi Group counts among its customer base some of the best-known brands in the homecare and healthcare sectors. But that hasn't stopped this progressive company exploring new markets: “We plan to strengthen our presence in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, in Italy and abroad. We believe PRATI has an integral role to play in our continuing diversification and future growth."
