In addition, the company announced it has expanded its North American organization with the appointments of Donna Covannon as marketing director Xeikon North America and James Achenbach as technical engineering solutions and sales support. Lastly, Xeikon declared it plans to host a Xeikon Café North America event every year.
“We are excited to welcome Xeikon Café North America visitors to our new Innovation Centre,” said Benoit Chatelard, president and CEO Digital Solutions, Flint Group. “This is just one element of the continued strengthening of our North American organization to ensure even better services for our growing Xeikon community there. We are also pleased to introduce visitors the two new digital presses from our Fast Feline family, recently launched at Labelexpo Europe. These include the Xeikon PX3000 powered by Panther UV inkjet technology and the Xeikon CX500 powered by Cheetah dry toner technology. Both are ideally suited for the North American market.”
The Xeikon Innovation Centre encompasses workflow, consumables, printing presses and converting equipment, and offers a broader spectrum of the production and business needs of printers and converters. The solutions hosted in the Chicago Innovation Centre cover all market segments Xeikon is addressing, more specifically graphic arts, labels and packaging.
At the opening of the new center, three digital printing solutions are displayed: the Xeikon PX3000, the company’s first UV inkjet digital label press just launched; the Xeikon 9800 duplex electrophotography (EP) printing press for the graphic arts market that runs at the highest production speeds; and the Xeikon 3500 wide-web, high speed EP digital press geared for carton packaging markets as well as wall decoration and signage industry.
