Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Sewickley, PA and Itasca, IL -- Xeikon, a division of Punch Graphix, has received the prestigious 2009 InterTech Technology Award for the Xeikon 3300. The digital color press offers unparalleled imaging quality and productivity to label converters for economical and environmentally-friendly production of short to medium runs and just-in-time jobs.

According to Michael V. Ring, vice president of sales and chief marketing officer of Xeikon’s North American operations, “The Xeikon 3300 is challenging the current quality-productivity paradigm by offering these two mutually exclusive capabilities together to label converters, and not sacrificing one for the sake of the other. As the InterTech Award honors excellence in innovative technology, we are happy and excited to have received this prestigious recognition.”

According to Filip Weymans, business development manager – labels and packaging, Punch Graphix International, “The InterTech award is the second major industry recognition for the Xeikon 3300. It also won the New Innovation Award at the 5th annual Label Industry Global Awards last year. These accolades from our industry experts, as well as the tremendous sales success we are experiencing with the 3300, demonstrate that it is a quantum leap in digital label printing. We are honored to have received the InterTech Award. It further strengthens our commitment to the label and packaging market.”

The 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.
