Addressing the latest advances in digital press technology, MACtac Printing Products has enhanced its digital label offering with a series of qualified paper and synthetic film labelstocks for the Xeikon 3000 Series of digital label presses.
MACtac Printing Products partnered with Xeikon, a leader in digital color printing innovation, to ensure that label converters achieve optimal print performance on the tested substrates. These substrates feature a broad range of facestock options paired with a variety of high-performance adhesives, including MACtac’s patented non-ooze adhesive for clean, dry label edges for less cleanup and faster press runs.
"The digital market continues to show exceptional growth, and MACtac is keeping pace, growing its qualified digital substrates offering to address the needs of the latest digital press technologies," said Allison Hazel, marketing manager, MACtac Printing Products. "We are pleased to partner with Xeikon to qualify several of our products specifically for Xeikon-based printing, ensuring converters that pairing product and press will result in high quality, exceptionally printed labels."
The Xeikon 3000 Series of digital label presses includes four models: Xeikon 3500, Xeikon 3300, Xeikon 3050 and Xeikon 3030. All the presses deliver the same print quality and are divided into two maximum web widths: 13 inches (Xeikon 3300 and Xeikon 3030) and 20.3 inches (Xeikon 3500 and Xeikon 3050). Entry-level versions are designed to be field-upgraded to the wider and/or faster specifications as the user’s business grows, without having to make any concessions in print quality. All models can print on an unrivaled range of substrates without pre-coat, including various self-adhesive materials such as co-extruded films, polypropylene (BOPP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyester (PET), paperboards, paper with weights ranging from 40 to 350 grams per square meter, and transparent and opaque foils.
"The Xeikon technology is a perfect fit for label applications due to its unparalleled productivity, image quality, flexibility and sustainability, all of which enable label converters to be more profitable," said Filip Weymans, business development manager, labels and packaging at Xeikon. "We are excited about our partnership with MACtac as it further broadens the range of substrate options available for digitally printed labels."
