Xeikon rebounds with introduction of a new digital label press

September 10, 2008

The company also won the Label Industry Award for New Innovation.

The Xeikon 3300, a new digital label press, was introduced by Xeikon at Labelexpo, the first appearance of the press in North America and a bold forward move for a company whose performance in the digital marketplace had been lackluster for several years.

The toner-based five-color press has a new imaging head that prints at 1200 dpi. The colors, known as Form Adaptive Toners, offer greater image control because their microscopic components are more spherical in shape, says Michael V. Ring, VP of sales and chief marketing officer for Xeikon’s North American operations. Xeikon is a subsidiary of Punch Graphix.

“Our presence at this year’s Labelexpo Americas is a true statement to our position in the label and packaging industry,” Ring said.

The 3300 has a web width of 13” and no repeat: A continuously variable image can be printed without frames or interruption. It will reach speeds up to 63 feet per minute using proprietary toners. Substrates require no advance preparation for printing.
