Xeikon takes Label Congress attendees on Innovation Center tour


Product experts showcased the company’s inkjet and toner capabilities in Itasca, IL, USA.

Xeikon, which was co-located with parent company Flint Group at Label Congress, delivered in-person tours of its latest digital label printing technology. With Label Congress taking place a short drive from Xeikon’s Itasca-based Innovation Center, the digital printing specialist guided visitors through its showroom.

Donna Covannon, Xeikon’s director of marketing, North America, and Todd Blumsack, director, director of label and packaging sales for Xeikon America, led the tour, which included live press runs of the Xeikon PX3000 digital UV inkjet label printing press. The company has announced the launch of new Panther models, too, which will include the Xeikon PX2200 and Xeikon PX3300, replacing the PX2000 and PX3000.

Xeikon’s X-800 Digital Front-End and toner-based printing technologies were also highlighted. The company’s software and color services were also common talking points for attendees to the Xeikon booth in Rosemont.

“In the last year, Xeikon has launched several new innovations and products,” Filip Weymans, vice president of marketing, said prior to the show. “Now, printers and converters are truly able to see our vision materializing and what that can mean for them. The careful build and structure of our portfolio is about to bear fruit, and we are now ready to present even more exciting innovations that will open up a way toward a digital future and ‘lights out’ production and manufacturing.

“With our latest innovations, printers and converters will be able to address the current and future needs of print buyers and brand owners. Having clear insight into their production environments means they can monitor progress and make quick and flexible decisions on the fly. This is why digitization can be a game-changer,” he concluded.
