Xeikon will highlight the fact that its technology is much more than a labels platform. The company is set to demonstrate solutions for a variety of sectors that use both inkjet and dry-toner technology, all driven by Xeikon’s digital front end, the X-800.
“We are very much looking forward to this year’s PrintEx exhibition,” said Trevor Crowley, sales general manager Australia and New Zealand. “The show is the perfect opportunity for us to discuss our latest developments beyond pressure-sensitive labels. Xeikon is looking to showcase its unique solutions designed for those working in the folding carton, wall decoration, POS and commercial print sectors.”
The flexibility of Xeikon technology will enable converters to diversify and will grow with their business development. For example, converters will not just print pharmaceutical labels for bottles but also produce the small cartons they go into. With the same platform, converters will be able to produce heat transfer labels, and added to this, the Xeikon technology now allows to deliver high quality flexible pouches.
The Xeikon platform also offers diversification in commercial printing with the production of high quality brochures, book covers, wall decoration, and point of sale items. In addition, there is the ability to print on a variety of materials without the need to pre-coat.
“We can offer customers more than just a label press,” Crowley added. “Xeikon has over 30 years of experience in developing digital technologies. We have recently developed a new advisory tool called ‘TRANSFORM’ that offers digital print solutions tailored for each individual business.
“Xeikon continues to innovate and monitor trends,” he noted. “For converters working with folding cartons, it is vital that the product meets FDA compliance regulations. Xeikon’s dry toner technology has been certified for direct dry food contact. Whether converters are producing folding cartons for pharmaceuticals or paper cups, Xeikon’s dry toner technology can now meet their needs and the needs of the consumer. This technology and certification is unique to Xeikon and ensures food safety for flexible packaging and stand-up pouches.”
