To handle the ever growing demand for digital print, the company has increased capacity by investing in another CX3 digital printing press (upping the number to four), and will be beta testing a next generation CX500 in a few months. As part of CS Labels' business process improvement and continuous productivity enhancement ethos, it has also installed a "productivity pack" for its Grafisk Maskinfabrik converting line and been asked to beta test the new "dashboard control" system from Xeikon, which analyzes the print performance of each digital press in detail, by the minute.
The announcement comes shortly after the Board of Directors was expanded when CS Labels appointed Adam James as operations director of the company.
The new developments include:
- The additional Xeikon CX3 digital printing press replaces the company's Xeikon 3500 press.
- The next generation CX500 will be beta tested by CS Labels. It offers a 520mm wide web width and is Industry 4.0 ready.
- The Grafisk Maskinfabrik DC330 converting line has been future-proofed and optimized for speed and output with a new innovative productivity pack. The product is a fully integrated converting line for labels that provides UV varnish, diecutting, slit and rewind on one single platform.
- The new "dashboard control system" app from Xeikon analyzes performance of the digital printing presses. It offers minute-to-minute updates and enhances productivity when implemented within a company production framework.
