Tuesday, September 08, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Itasca, IL - Xeikon, a division of Punch Graphix, legendary for pioneering the first digital color presses, today announced that the company will be present at the upcoming 2009 Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) Technical Conference, taking place in Chicago, September 8–10, 2009. The theme of this year's conference is "Get Smart", focusing on the day-to-day issues narrow web printers and converters are facing in the current marketplace.

During the conference Michael V. Ring, VP of Sales & CMO of Xeikon's North American operations and Filip Weymans, Xeikon's Business Development Manager for Labels & Packaging segment, will be on hand to give attendees insight about the digital color production of labels and packaging applications. Xeikon will also showcase a variety of unique samples produced on the Xeikon 3300 digital label press during the conference.
"As we embark on the ninth TLMI Technical Conference, we are excited to discuss digital technology's impact throughout the tag and label industry," said Weymans. "Now, more than ever, it is important for label and packaging converters to invest in a digital solution that offers high quality, productivity and flexibility – all key elements for propelling their business to new heights and improving production efficiency."

The award-winning Xeikon 3300 offers true 1200 dpi at four bits per spot. With a top speed of 63 linear feet per minute and a monthly duty cycle of 2.3 million linear feet, the Xeikon 3300 is extremely productive and is designed to operate 24 hours a day. It includes five color stations: four for the standard process colors and the fifth color station for spot colors. The spot colors can be used for gamut expansion or for producing specific brand colors. The fifth color station can also be utilized for printing on transparent films using Xeikon's one-pass opaque white toner and for security printing using Xeikon's special security toner. Operating on the Xeikon Form Adapted (FA) toner, the Xeikon 3300 is FDA-approved for use in certain food contact applications.

The dry toner electrophotography imaging process of the Xeikon 3300 enables the use of conventional substrates without coating or pre-treatment and emits no VOC's or other hazardous substances. The printed output of the Xeikon 3300 is fully recyclable. The press also features full rotary printing technology, enabling printing at rated engine speeds, for maximum productivity.

Xeikon's expertise will also be leveraged during the "Application in Action with Digital Printing" session on September 09. This session will be a consultative panel discussion from the converter's perspective regarding digital technology and its impact on their business. Xeikon experts will be a part of the discussion panel during this session and will share their experience and insights with the attendees.
