Xeikon will use this opportunity to highlight the fact that Xeikon technology is much more than a labels platform. The company is set to demonstrate the multiplicity and breadth of solutions they have for a variety of sectors that use both inkjet and dry-toner technology, all driven by Xeikon’s powerful and user-friendly digital front end, the X-800. Xeikon is focused on meeting and supporting businesses looking to diversify and add new revenue streams.
“We are very much looking forward to this year’s PrintEx exhibition,” states Sales General Manager Australia and New Zealand, Trevor Crowley. “The show is the perfect opportunity for us to discuss our latest developments beyond pressure-sensitive labels. We want to advise our Australian customers on what more a Xeikon platform can offer to a converter, and the new business opportunities that are possible with our innovative technologies. Xeikon is looking to showcase its unique solutions designed for those working in the folding carton, wall decoration, POS and commercial print sectors. We want to help converters understand the possibilities and the variety of new markets that can be available using our technologies.”
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.
More than labels
Crowley continues, “We can offer customers more than just a label press. 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 (transform.xeikon.com). Xeikon continues to innovate and monitor trends. 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.”
Visitors will find Xeikon at the show on Stand R36 in Hall 3. Guru Labels – a premium supplier of high quality digital labels in Australia and a Xeikon user for a number of years – will also be exhibiting at PrintEx and will be happy to speak to any potential digital users about their digital journey with the Xeikon technology. From entry level solutions through to high end production lines, Xeikon is ready to share its latest news on the innovative power of its X-800 DFE and its diverse ability to drive a number of digital presses using both inkjet and dry toner technologies. Xeikon is looking forward to meeting the wider print community at PrintEx 2019.
