Chicago, Ill. – Xeikon America, Inc. today announced an entry level digital printing solution, offered at a price point that brings high-value digital printing squarely within reach for print providers and in-plants of all sizes. The Xeikon EntryPoint 8500 solution includes a Xeikon 8500 single-pass duplex 20-inch web-fed digital press and Xeikon long-length stacker. The new solution was announced at the PRINT 18 trade show, held here from September 30th through October 2nd.
“Digital printing has become a cornerstone technology for both in-plant and commercial print providers, but there are still some who have not implemented digital technology – either due to cost considerations or lack of a truly professional-quality entry-level solution,” said David Wilkins, Vice President of Sales, Xeikon America, Inc. “Others currently offer digital printing using cut-sheet devices, which don’t support many of the growing application areas that require long length printing.”
The affordable cost of the Xeikon EntryPoint 8500 solution enables these companies to embrace digital technology and capture the business potential found in growing applications like customized wall coverings or large signage.
“The Xeikon EntryPoint 8500 solution is a turnkey digital print solution that provides everything print providers need to offer an expanded range of services to their customers,” said Wilkins. “Users will experience the benefits that a continuous-feed, wide-bed digital press can bring to their businesses. In addition to enabling an affordable entry into this market, the Xeikon Entry Point 8500 solution is a platform that can be field upgraded in terms of productivity as the business grows, ensuring the long-term viability of the investment.”
The Xeikon 8500 digital press is a member of the Xeikon Duplex Series, achieving high productivity providing highest quality printing at entry level investment costs. The press is ideal to get a first experience with digital printing and, as the business grows, be upgraded on site.
