The agreement was completed at Labelexpo 2019.
The Xeikon CX3 will complement more than 25 production lines in action at Limo Labels’ main plant in Stevnstrup, Denmark. These include a Xeikon 3300 digital Dry Toner press and 2 Xeikon Jetrion Inkjet presses.
The company will take delivery of the new press in October 2019.
"Our digital journey started with Xeikon and we continue this with the installation of the Xeikon CX3 machine. This model offers us very high speeds, dry toner technology and the opportunity to achieve a wider range of brand colors with the fifth unit using orange," said Henrik Ehlers, sales manager for key accounts at Limo Labels.
The Xeikon CX3 digital label press offers a top speed of 30m/min with substrate widths up to 330mm, full rotary printing at 1200dpi plus variable dot density and FDA compliance for food contact.
The company runs multiple production lines utilizing several technologies including flexo, screen printing, digital iInkjet and digital dry toner to manage the production of a range of self-adhesive labels of different types, sizes and designs including smart labels with RFID technology for a diversity of sectors.
“The Xeikon CX3 digital label press... will help close the gap on run lengths between flexo and digital by lowering variable running costs," said Daniel Augustin, Nordic sales manager for Carton Packaging.
The new press is equipped with standard CMYK + high opacity White and will be integrated into the Xeikon Color Control system at Limo Labels.
