Xeikon Supports First Print4All 


Spotlight on end-to-end tailored solutions for new market initiatives 

At the first Print4All, scheduled for May 29 to June 1 at Fiera Milano, Italy, Xeikon’s expert team will highlight how tailored products and services can support the end-to-end digital production of new initiatives in local markets. Xeikon will be located on Pavillion 20, Stand A16 B21, at the show. 

Under the banner “High-end labels. One pass. One platform. All digital.”, the label production focus will be on what dry toner and inkjet systems have to offer. Samples from the Xeikon CX3 digital toner label press and the Xeikon PX3000 digital inkjet label press will show what is possible using these two complementary technologies in label production.

Xeikon’s CX3 is a five-colour digital label press with the highest throughput in its class that helps label converters reduce production times and maintain quality. Xeikon’s PX3000, based on Xeikon's Panther UV inkjet technology and operating with PantherCure UV ink, combines Xeikon’s trademark quality, versatility and speed with the possibilities of inkjet. 

For the packaging sector, Xeikon will detail how visitors can take folding carton production digital with its Folding Carton Suite. It will demonstrate how the assured mix of excellent print quality and a fast set up time enable the rapid completion of cost effective short run, fast turnaround jobs that use conventional substrates without any compromise in quality. 

A Xeikon 3500 will demonstrate live production of packaging and point of sale materials. It will also highlight the opportunities created through personalisation and the use of Xeikon’s toner-based printers to ensure food safe packaging. Among the creative solutions on display will be digitally printed paper cups. 

The graphic arts spotlight will be placed on the production of book covers, high quality direct mail and point of sale materials. Xeikon Suites offer a modular print-to-finish digital production solution that can be tailored to suit the demands of any operation and to address a multitude of applications.

Xeikon’s expert team will be on hand to talk with visitors about their requirements and to help them in the decision-making process.

“This is a great opportunity to show the many elements of our portfolio and how they can enable operations to explore new markets and initiatives fully supported by Xeikon’s technology and our team of experts,” explains Dimitri Van Gaever, Xeikon’s Business Development Manager for the Graphic Arts Segment. 

“The benefits of digital production can be enjoyed by every segment in the printing industry. The key is finding the right solutions for each need. While we are showcasing a broad portfolio at Print4All, it is the flexibility delivered, and the modularity offered, that allows for the creation of bespoke production solutions.”
