“Our digital label work has grown tremendously over the five years, and the investment in the new Xeikon CX3 press had become essential in order for us to keep up with the volume of orders that we are now having to process,” said James Lindsay, managing director of PeterLynn. “The new press will give us at least 50% more capacity, as well as expanding the range of label materials that we can print.
“The work generated by having this digital capability has helped us to expand our business,” added Lindsay. “We still run flexo presses, and they have continued to be busy during this time. The work for the Xeikon machine has been generated from new work for existing customers, and new work from new customers,”
The Xeikon CX3 five-colour digital label press hardware offers variable substrate widths up to 330mm (13 inches). This latest machine now offers PeterLynn a top speed of 30 m/min (96 ft/min). It offers full rotary printing, a print resolution of true 1200 x 3600 dpi, toners that meet FDA regulations for food contact, and one pass opaque white toner.
In addition to a growing business in cosmetics, PeterLynn also has strong relationships with a number of companies involved in the brewery sector – companies that the company has worked with since their very early days. “This has expanded more recently into the wider beverages market, including gin and wine suppliers,” added Vicky Waine, sales and marketing manager for PeterLynn.
