Press release from the issuing company

West Chester, OH - Color-Logic and Xeikon will partner at the Labelexpo show in Chicago, September 14-16, 2010, to produce labels of exceptional imaging quality and rich color using the Color Logic Process Metallic Color System.

Announcing the collaboration, Color-Logic Sales and Marketing Director Mark Geeves said: "We are pleased that Xeikon will use the Color-Logic system at Labelexpo to demonstrate the broad array of metallic hues and special effects that can be produced on their recently-announced Xeikon 3000 Series of label presses on a wide variety of substrates. The Color-Logic Process Metallic Color System permits designers to use as many metallic colors and effects as desired, creating imaginative, luxurious, and refreshingly original printed media on a wide variety of printing platforms."

According to Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager-Labels & Packaging at Xeikon, "We are excited about our collaboration with Color-Logic at Labelexpo. Using the Color-Logic software solution, we will be able to further enhance the quality of labels produced with our technology and broaden the range of application where digital can be used, like cosmetic packaging."

Xeikon will exhibit the Xeikon 3500 digital label press at Booth 6135, Hall F at Labelexpo. The Xeikon 3500, launched at IPEX 2010, addresses the need for more production capacity. It can handle scalable media widths up to 20.3 inches, a significant size increase that allows label converters to digitally address a wider range of applications with 1200 dpi imaging quality. In addition, it can handle monthly duty cycles up to 3.8 million square feet. The press is ideal for the production of self-adhesive and heat transfer labels. Equipped with high-precision LED-based imaging heads, it generates excellent image quality. It is equipped with five color stations, four for the standard process colors while a fifth allows the use of spot colors. Print speed of the press is unaffected by the number of colors used as well as the repeat length of a label. The Xeikon 3500 can also apply a special security toner for anti-counterfeiting applications, and 'one-pass' opaque white to create a desired 'no-label/label-less look' on transparent labels. It runs on the new Xeikon QA-I toner, which meets all the applicable FDA standards for indirect and direct contact with dry food items.
