To meet industry needs for sustainable printing methods and environmentally friendly packaging production, Xeikon announces Titon technology, a new toner formulation offering all the benefits of UV inks without the disadvantages.
“The flexible packaging market is moving toward more sustainable paper-based solutions in response to strong consumer demand for plastic-free alternatives,” says Frank Jacobs, market intel and senior product manager. “With the new Titon technology, Xeikon is offering a sustainable solution for an unexplored and wider variety of applications to fully support brand owners, designers and printers wishing to increase their use of paper-based packaging for food products.”
Titon can be employed to print many types of flexible packaging for food products. It can be used for papers that are coated on one side for bags, pouches and sachets, or on both sides for wrappers such as baked goods, confectionery, sugar, flour, herbs and spices, and coffee and tea. It allows brand owners to move to recyclable paper-based packaging.
The first digital press model to run Titon technology will be the Xeikon CX500t, a new member of the Cheetah series.
