Xeikon introduces new entry level digital presses

September 15, 2010

The new models have lower price points aimed at printers entering the digital label market.

Earlier this year, Xeikon, manufacturer of dry toner-based digital label presses, added a 20” wide model, the 3500, to complement its 13” Model 330. This week the company unveiled two new presses aimed at attracting entry-level customers. The Xeikon 3050 and 3030, are slower versions of the 3500 and 3300, respectively.

The Xeikon 3050 offers label converters an attractive entry-level investment into high quality digital label printing, with the additional flexibility of greater width,” says Filip Weymans, business development manager labels and packaging. “It completes our Xeikon 3000 series, and we can now offer entry-level and high productivity versions in two print widths, all with the same high quality of printing.”

The flexible print width o the Xeikon 3050 allows customers to print according to the job requirements. Depending on their size, labels can be imposed more efficiently, which results in higher throughput. The press speed of 31.5 fpm (9.6 m/m) can be maintained regardless of whether four or five colors are printed. Like the other Xeikon presses, the 3050 is an LED-array-based digital press, printing at 1,200 dpi imaging resolution. It can print on a wide range o substrates, including such films as BOPP, PVC and PET.
