Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Event recognizes exceptional print projects in Quebec 

Itasca, IL - Xeikon, an innovator in digital color printing technology, announced that it is sponsoring the 2015 Gutenberg Gala, a unique event celebrating print accomplishments of companies in Quebec.

Xeikon is a "Gold" sponsor of the gala, which will be held at the Montreal Science Centre in Montreal, Quebec, on Thursday, May 14. The gala is intended to recognize creativity and innovation, especially in projects requiring a high level of technical expertise.

Companies have submitted projects in several different categories, including display advertising, publishing, labels, packaging, finishing and marketing materials. Winners are chosen by a panel of judges, and will be presented with trophies at the gala. All the winners will be prominently mentioned on the event website, along with images and videos from the event, after the gala.

"We are proud to support the Gutenberg Gala, which is a special event intended to promote pride in print and highlight exceptional companies in the Quebec print industry," said Todd Blumsack, vice president of sales and marketing, Xeikon America. "It's an important event for our industry and we look forward to joining the celebrations."

Xeikon representatives will be available at the gala to discuss company's complete line of digital color presses and related solutions for labels, packaging and commercial printing applications with interested attendees.

Xeikon's solutions for label and packaging applications include the Xeikon 3000 Series and the recently launched Xeikon Cheetah. The Xeikon Cheetah prints at a top speed 98 feet per minute, making it the fastest digital color press in its quality class. All the Xeikon press models have an imaging resolution of 1200x3600 dpi. Their renowned benefits include the use of dry toners that meet FDA regulations for food contact and the ability to print opaque white toner in one pass. They also enable the use of conventional/flexo substrates that do not have to be pre-treated. Extremely high toner lightfastness and truly eco-friendly printing (no VOCs) are some of the other beneficial features of Xeikon label and packaging presses.

Xeikon's solutions for document and commercial printing applications include the Xeikon 8000 Series of digital color presses, along with the recently-launched Xeikon 9800 press. All the presses have a web width of up to 20.2 inches and support virtually every application a business needs, from direct marketing/direct mail and POP/POS signage to posters, banners and even wallpaper.

Capable of printing at speeds of up to 70.5 feet per minute, the Xeikon 9800 is the most productive digital color press in the company's portfolio of 5/5 single-pass duplex printing presses. It uses a uniquely adapted dry toner, QA-CD, which can deliver high speeds at a reduced cost.
