Therefore, of course, they need to innovate and stay at the forefront of the industry. NoviPrint identified the need for a higher-volume digital press to accommodate the recent surge in volume and shorter print runs. After carefully considering available options, they chose to go with a Xeikon press for its outstanding application versatility in both food and non-food sectors and its advanced workflow capabilities.
NoviPrint based in Dordrecht, employs 25 people and does business across the Netherlands, Europe, Africa and South America. They produce labels for all kinds of markets like logistics, food, flora, healthcare and industrial. They specialize in Auto-ID for which they are a full-service provider, also offering label printers and scanners.
Their Xeikon press is equipped with ICE toner. This type of dry-toner uses a different core resin to enable fusing at significantly lower temperatures which makes it suitable for printing on heat-sensitive substrates, such as PE and direct thermal paper labels which is a requirement for NoviPrint for their activities in the label market.
This allows us to expand further and optimize our print shop operations, enabling us to offer our customers an even wider range of labels. The support from Xeikon has been very pleasant throughout."
NoviPrint's strategic decision to invest in Xeikon technology demonstrates their commitment to providing top-notch label printing services while efficiently adapting to market trends. Xeikon presses are renowned for their reliability, speed, and high-quality output, making them an ideal solution for printers seeking to optimize their operations.
“Since its beginning, Xeikon invested continuously to stay on top of digital workflow. It's great to see that dynamic and innovative companies like NoviPrint recognize this”, says Danny Mertens, Xeikon’s marketing manager, “NoviPrint is passionate about their work and chooses reliable partners that ‘click’ with this philosophy. It makes us proud to be part of this.”
