Xeikon’s first PacPrint attendance follows the creation of a dedicated sales, service and support operation in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year. The new business unit was established after the acquisition of Xeikon by Flint Group and a thorough review of synergies between the companies. Xeikon ANZ uses its own service engineers to support the presses, with parts and consumables located in Sydney and with demo/benchmark support from the regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, which hosts the regional technology center.
Running live at the show will be a Xeikon CX3, aka Cheetah, which offers label printers faster running speed, lower operating costs and an unseen flexibility to meet complex customer demands without compromising quality, reliability or consistency, whatever the label. This five-color press, dedicated solely to the production of self-adhesive/pressure sensitive labels, offers variable substrate widths up to 330mm and comes with a top speed of 30m/min. Next to the standard CMYK + White, the fifth station can be used to print gamut extension or security colors without reducing productivity.
Visitors can also learn more about Xeikon’s end-to-end solution for folding carton and see for themselves the value of going digital in folding carton production.
“Finding the right solution for every label or packaging project is crucial for businesses today. The Xeikon solutions allow operations to handle workloads efficiently and in a way that would allow their business to grow. They also complement longer flexo runs supporting competitiveness in a range of fields,” concluded Trevor Crowley, Xeikon ANZ sales GM.
