The complete process of Digital Pouch Production. Print : Laminate : Convert 08 Oct 2020
Lier, Belgium – Xeikon will shortly send out invitations to its upcoming Xeikon Café TV on complete Pouch Production, supported by Xeikon fleXflow. Set to take place on Thursday 15th October and a ‘must attend’ for all label converters, Xeikon product experts will be on hand to offer their knowledge, deeper understanding and advice on the whole process required for successful digital pouch production. Attendees will have access to the latest technical demonstrations and hear forward thinking, customer testimonials from Simon Smith, Managing Director and Adam James, Operations Director of CS Labels/CS Pouches in the UK and Gustavo Guzzi, EMEA Sales Manager of Karlville Pouch Converting Solutions. There will also be a Q&A session with all speakers.
Stefan Clopterop, Market Segment Manager Labels says, “Digital Pouch production is a perfect fit for label converters looking to diversify and expand their business. Xeikon’s fleXflow process revolutionizes pouch making by offering “zero-after-cure” of the laminate. This is an ECO friendly solution by not using solvents during print and lamination plus high bonding strength and low complexity in the handling and construction of many different types of pouch. We are holding this Xeikon Café TV demonstration to give converters the confidence to step into new markets. The production of pouches can be combined with an existing label business which is an attractive option, thereby easing the burden of a financial risk which is sometimes linked to entering new markets. The opportunities at present have never been higher. During this current Covid-19 pandemic there have been significant increases in e-commerce and higher local demand because of disrupted supply chains from other countries. Brand owners are looking for local suppliers of pouches to secure and improve the flexibility of their supply chain and ensure the safety of their products.”
Flexible packaging applications are part of a dynamic global market with huge potential. Xeikon launched its innovative Pouch Production solution, based on Xeikon fleXflow, at Labelexpo in 2019 and since then the uptake has been significant. Now Xeikon is reaching out to all label printers and converters to show them how easy it is to master the whole process – PDF to Pouch. By introducing digital pouch production into their existing business, label converters can add value to their portfolio and bring in new revenue streams.
During the webinar, label printers and converters will see and hear the following demonstrations and discussions:
- Xeikon’s CX500 digital press using its proprietary dry toner technology with full food safety compliance
- Xeikon’s LCoat 500 for “zero-after-cure” lamination
- Karlville pouch converting - twin-web pouch converting with ultrasonic welding
- Quality flexible pouches for a variety of end user markets
- Customer Testimonial from Simon Smith and Adam James (CS-labels, CS pouches)
Stefan Clopterop concludes, “Our intention is always to support our customers and the global label community by offering opportunities to build business.” Xeikon is regarded as a trusted advisor consistently offering its customers the latest digital technologies – fully supported by its suite of Premium services which includes the online advisory service Transform.
