Prati – Carl Valentin GmbH has successfully put the first Prati machine into operation

Carl Valentin celebrated the 100th anniversary of the company in 2018. 100 years, a strong number, an impressive success story that starts in April 1918. What began in 1918 as a label factory has developed into one of the leading manufacturers of labeling systems.

Today the whole world prints with solutions from Carl Valentin. More than 70,000 systems are currently in use around the world, and the traditional company is successfully on the move with sales partners around the globe. With a label production, extensive accessories and suitable software solutions, Carl Valentin is considered a worldwide full-range supplier – to this day – in family hands. Meanwhile the management of Carl Valentin GmbH is in the hands of the managing director Erwin Tisler.

The course for the future is set – for further growth!

In 2018 the company decided to build a new building to expand office and production space. The increasingly important area of label production is to be expanded with this. The new building will be ready for occupancy at the end of 2019 and the first machine to be installed in the new production hall will be the brand new PRATI Saturn die cutter!

Carl Valentin produces adhesive labels and mono materials from blank to 4-color UV flexo printing at the Dauchingen site. The further processing to any desired finishing will be done in the future, among others, with a new PRATI Saturn machine in 400mm working width, equipped with a die cutter, the fully automatic knife positioning unit “Fast Cut” as well as a semi-automatic dual turret with automatic knock-off at the end of the count.

Thus, optimal conditions for increasing productivity have been created. “The management of Carl Valentin GmbH is already considering the purchase of a second PRATI Saturn,” comments Eberhard Hauser – Technical Director of Carl Valentin GmbH.

On behalf of Nilpeter GmbH, Christoph Kugler, sales representative of Nilpeter GmbH for the area of Southern Germany, comments: “We are pleased about the trust placed in Carl Valentin GmbH and are proud to be able to participate in this success story in the future and to be able to further expand the partnership in the near future.
