Xeikon 3300 wins 2009 InterTechTM Technology Award

July 28, 2009

The award marks the second recognition for the digital label press in a year.

Xeikon, a division of Punch Graphix, has received the 2009 InterTech Technology Award for the Xeikon 3300 digital color press. Inaugurated in 1978 to foster awareness and understanding of advanced graphic arts technology, the Printing Industry of America’s InterTech Award honors excellence in innovative technology for the graphic communications industry. The nomination criteria stipulate that the technology be recently developed but out of beta and be proven in industrial application, but not yet in widespread use. The technology must also be expected to have a major impact on the graphic communications industry over the next five years.

“The Xeikon 3300 is challenging the current quality-productivity paradigm by offering these two mutually exclusive capabilities together to label converters, and not sacrificing one for the sake of the other,” says Michael V. Ring, vice president of sales and chief marketing officer of Xeikon’s North American operations. “As the InterTech Award honors excellence in innovative technology, we are happy and excited to have received this prestigious recognition.”

According to Filip Weymans, business development manager - labels and packaging for Punch, “The InterTech award is the second major industry recognition for the Xeikon 3300. It also won the New Innovation Award at the 5th annual Label Industry Global Awards last year. These accolades from our industry experts, as well as the tremendous sales success we are experiencing with the 3300, demonstrate that it is a quantum leap in digital label printing.”
