Digital Specialist To Represent Xeikon In Indian Document Printing Market

Eede, The Netherlands – Xeikon, an innovator in digital color printing technology has signed an agreement with Sapphire, the leading Indian supplier of digital print solutions to support its expansion in the Indian document printing market.

The agreement, signed at the brand new Xeikon Asia Technology Center, will focus on the commercial printing and publishing sectors as well as the photo, wall décor and creative markets.

The portfolio Sapphire represents includes Xeikon’s 8000 Series digital color presses. They feature high precision LED-array imaging technology, which combines true 1200 dpi resolution and 4-bit per spot color depth, to deliver the finest commercial print quality available on the market today. In addition, the Xeikon 8000 Series presses offer unmatched format flexibility, with a media width of 512mm (20.2 inches) and unlimited print length. The presses print on both sides of the substrate simultaneously and can handle monthly duty cycles of up to 10 million pages.

The 8000 Series presses are a fundamental element in Xeikon’s Document Production Suite, a fully integrated solution for the production of direct marketing material of virtually any size or format, ready for mailing or short-run high-quality transactional printing. 

Sapphire will also offer Xeikon’s Wall Decoration Suite. It allows cost-efficient production of high-quality wall decorations for commercial, retail and residential purposes. This short-run friendly ‘all-in-one’ solution addresses the increasing demand for more customized and personalized print jobs and enables the production of a small roll of finished wallpaper from a large roll of paper. It integrates four major components - a Xeikon digital press printing on the widest media range available, with dedicated workflows and software, application-specific toners and process optimization tools plus pre- and post-press equipment.

“We pride ourselves on our customer centric approach, whether it is providing a trained operator with the machine or supporting the initial installation for the first couple of weeks,” states Sapphire’s Vikram Saxena, Chief Operating Officer at Sapphire Graphic Solutions. “It is this approach to customer support that has resulted in the success of our business from its inception. We are delighted to be able to work with Xeikon and share with our customers how the large portfolio of Xeikon’s digital printing solutions can help them grow their business and stay ahead of the competition.”

Bent Serritslev, who was recently appointed Managing Director Xeikon Asia Pacific (ASPAC) to help support its fast-paced growth in this dynamic region comments: “Sapphire has earned an unrivalled reputation for its service, support and sales of digital printing solutions and we are delighted to be working together in such an exciting and vibrant region. We are looking forward to presenting solutions that can help Indian print production operations improve their production capabilities and enhance their service offering.”
