“At CEI, superb quality refers to 2400x3600 dpi print resolution, high light fastness, unique one-pass opaque white, FDA compliance for use with food, extensive use of color control and color management, all the way up to the use of several security features inside the labels. The digital technology has to match and preferably beat the conventional quality. That ‘s what our Xeikon 3030 does," states Jesus Ramirez, owner of CEI in Mexico.
CEI needed a full rotary printing system constantly delivering high productivity independent of either the number of colors or the repeat length of the job. Their digital press had to at least match their conventional presses in terms of quality in order to make sense as an investment. Ramirez and his team found what they were looking for in the Xeikon 3030.
Ramirex also points to the fact that the press does not require either pre-coating of the standard substrates or selecting pre-coated, hence more expensive materials. He says. "That is a straighforward benefit in times of cost reduction. It also broadens sourcing options, again improving cost efficiency."
