Eede, the Netherlands – Xeikon will reconfirm its leading position in the document printing space and highlight its security print capabilities with its flagship Xeikon 9800 duplex press at Hunkeler Innovation Days, Messe Lucerne, February 20 to 23.

“The transactional and book production space has been affected by the changing communications landscape and as such leading players are looking to the potential offered by adjacent markets,” says Dimitri Van Gaever, Business Development Manager of Xeikon. “At this dedicated event, our objective is to inspire our customers and prospects by showing them new possibilities that are within their reach. This time, we are showcasing a demanding security application that features precision, quality, and reliabledata integrity.”

This security application is centered around a personalised mailer that includes a high value personalized entry ticket. The substrate of choice is a top quality security paper and the inline finishing will be performed on Hunkeler and GUK equipment. The goal is to highlight the opportunities offered by security features such as variable data, UV clear toner, barcode, spot colors, microtext, guilloches, raised images. Xeikon technology is the perfect fit for this kind of high value application.

Xeikon recognizes that critical to smooth production is a well-chosen range of partnerships. As such it has teamed up with Drewsen’s security paper, Agfa and its Arziro software and Hunkeler and GUK with their finishing equipment. 

The Xeikon 9800’s unparalleled combination of quality, speed, versatility and TCO will be demonstrated with live production. The 21.5 m/min (70 ft/min) 5/5 one pass duplex, web fed press delivers 1200 dpi on media up to 512 mm (20.2 inches). 

“This is our seventh time at the show and the sector has undergone a significant amount of change,” says Van Gaever. “Our toner technology delivers sharp print and micro text detail. We are excited to see how it can help customers in this sector strive to meet increasingly complex job requirements. We can also support them as they investigate what other markets their capabilities can explore.”

“To overcome the complexities of today’s document production, complex partnerships are essential,” concludes Van Gaever. “To create a highly-crafted, secure, communication that targets the right recipients requires a very skilful production team. We will be showing visitors how they can develop their own teams to capture the opportunities available.”
