Xeikon 3500: wider, better, faster, simpler
To showcase how high-quality single-wall solutions can be printed in a flash these days thanks to digital technology, we brought along the Xeikon 3500 digital press and printed some of our clients’ most unique wallpaper designs on the spot. The Xeikon 3500 prints 600 sq m per hour, up to 516 mm wide.
Introducing the wallpaper rewinder
We also demonstrated WMR, our new wallpaper rewinder which integrates perfectly into our existing print solutions. Delivering neatly finished rolls at the end of the production cycle, the Xeikon WMR was specially developed for digitally printed wall solutions, photo murals and short run wallpaper.
Trend alert: glow-in-the-dark wallpaper
Wallpaper by day, light show by night! Glow-in the dark wallpaper and textiles have been around for a while now, but from the looks of Heimtextil 2017 it seems UV-sensitive designs are finally getting their well-deserved moment in the spotlight.
