Xeikon Introduces New Label Press

April 11, 2010

Xeikon will demonstrate a new high-end digital label press at IPEX next month. The Xeikon 3500 press has a web width of up to 512mm wide and prints at 19.2 metres per minute, regardless of the amount of colours used.

"We believe the Xeikon 3500 will also have a significant impact on the breakeven point between digital label printing and conventional printing technologies," said Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager of Labels & Packaging at Xeikon. "This will enable the cost-effective production of volumes beyond the 4,000 linear meters using digital technology, and will speed up the transition from analog to digital label production."

The Xeikon 3500 is equipped with five colours as standard, process and one spot colour. Its LED-based imaging technology produces a true 1,200 dpi resolution, with variable dot density. Special security-focused toner can also be used for anti-counterfeiting applications. The Xeikon 3500 runs on Xeikon's new QA-I toner, which is approved for indirect and direct contact with dry food.

It can print on scalable widths and an unmatched range of substrates from all sorts of self-adhesive materials including paper, co-extruded films, Bopp and PET, regular paper, transparent and opaque foils, and paperboards with weights ranging from 40 to 350 gsm. Owners of Xeikon 3000 and 3330 machines will be offered an upgrade path for the 3500.
