Xeikon launches 9800 Press
February 26, 2015 By PrintAction Staff
Xeikon demonstrated its new Xeikon 9800 dry-toner press for the first time during Hunkeler Innovationdays, which ends today Switzerland. Designed to replace Xeikon’s 8800 press, while adding to the continuing 8500 and 8600 models, the 9800 press is scheduled for a September 2015 commercial launch.
The 9800 press uses Xeikon’s new QA-CD toner and reaches speeds of up to 21.5 metres per minute. It is designed to print on a range of untreated substrates ranging from lightweight 40 gsm to 300 gsm.
Leveraging the Xeikon X-800 front-end and new QA-CD toner, the Xeikon 9800 is rated to produce a print resolution of 1,200 x 3,600 dpi, with variable dot density. The company states the 9800, described as its most-productive colour press, with 5/5 single-pass duplex printing, is ideally suited for high-end direct-marketing work.
Available QA-CD toners include CMYK, Red, Green, Blue, Extra Magenta and SuperBlack as well as White and Clear (UV reflecting) toner. Upon request, Xeikon can also provide special colours when specified by printing operations.
During Hunkeler Innovationdays, which has become a prominent annual industry event for technology introductions, the Xeikon 9800 is equipped with a Hunkeler Unwinder, a Web Finishing module that protects against damage in the converting device; a Hunkeler cutter that cuts to clean sheets; and a GUK folding device, a single conveyor belt that stacks the leaflets.
