“Where before we used wet-glue labels, we now switched to self-adhesive labels," said Alain Pinckaers, director of Val-Dieu Brewery. "As the bottles are washed and re-used, it was vital that the labels are easily removed."
Added Jean-Marie Peters, owner of Label‘Or: “After the necessary preparations, the files are sent to the Xeikon front-end, and then produced on the Xeikon CX3 which prints most of the Val-Dieu labels.
"Not only do we print four or five different colors, we also add a coating," Peters continued. "Afterwards the large reels... are sent to the roll slitting and rewinding machine, where the labels are cut and wound on reels for the labelling machine."
Family-owned Label’Or started working with Xeikon in 2008 when the Xeikon 3300 5-color digital press was installed.
