Xeikon announces its participation to Labelexpo Europe 2011. At the show, the company will showcase an impressive line-up of five solutions dedicated to digital label printing, including digital label presses, converting lines and integrated software. On stand 45 in Hall 9, Xeikon will present a wide web label solution with its Xeikon 3500, the most productive digital label press available on the market. The show will also mark the launch of the DCoat500 that will be showcased ’in World Première’ as the in-line finishing solution of the Xeikon 3500.
Besides participating in the Package Printing Zone, Xeikon is again one of the challengers in the Digital Print Workshops where the company demonstrates the advantages of its dry toner technology in terms of quality, sustainability, flexibility and profitability. Xeikon will also take the opportunity to underline its position as an innovator of choice in the label industry, unveiling a number of new developments in workflow and finishing.
“Labelexpo is one of the industry’s leading events and it has achieved this status because of its clear focus. Also at Xeikon, we are dedicated to label production and we're looking forward to present our latest innovations at this year's show edition in Belgium," says Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager Labels & Packaging at Xeikon. "Following the introduction of the Xeikon 3000 Series at Labelexpo Americas last year, we now bring our series of digital label presses to the label converters in Europe. With the newest Xeikon 3500 and Xeikon 3050 on the show ground, we'll highlight the wide range of business opportunities that go far beyond self-adhesive labels such as heat transfer labels, wetglue labels, folding carton, POP/POS..... We are proud to be present with three of our presses during the show as it reflects how fast the market embraced our technology."
Launch of DCoat500 makes the Xeikon 3500 even more productive
Following the introduction of the wider Xeikon 3500 digital label press last year, Xeikon responds to its customers' requirements by completing this solution with a wider converting line. Launching the DCoat500, Xeikon concludes its range of existing finishing solutions DCoat330, UCoat500 and the miniDCoat330. With this latest addition to Xeikon's product portfolio, the company offers a unique solution for complete self-adhesive label production, from prepress over printing to finishing on a 500 mm/20” web width.
Depending on the label printer's production necessities, the DCoat500 can be placed in-line or off-line, making it a highly flexible solution. The DCoat500 provides the finishing touch by applying a UV varnish or lamination. It also incorporates a die-cut station able to operate full rotary or semi rotary, which is an ideal and cost-effective solution for the short to medium runs. In addition, it includes slitting and rewinding features for the last stage of the production.
