Xeikon is at the Fespa Global Print Expo 2023 in Munich, Germany, where the broad versatility and flexibility of its digital printing technologies is on show, along with new innovative concepts that it has developed in cooperation with its customers.
Over 30 different applications are on display on stand B2-A20, where Xeikon is demonstrating its digital print portfolio.
The company said it is exhibiting its integrated end-to-end solutions designed to give printers the freedom to diversify and exploit opportunities in different segments.
“Xeikon is at FESPA to showcase the unequalled application versatility of its digital print technology, which offers profitable growth through higher levels of automation while also allowing for more sustainability,” its market segment director for graphic arts Dimitri Van Gaever said.
“We are meeting with printers to discuss how they can pivot their operations and accelerate into new profitable markets by implementing our innovative, highly flexible solutions.”
In addition to presenting digital print samples and products covering the whole spectrum of printing, from marketing communications, specialty applications and interior decoration, to labels and point of sale solutions, the latest iteration of Xeikon’s Wall Deco Suite is running live to showcase digital printing on a variety of non-woven materials from its substrates partners Ahlstrom and Lahnpaper.
This end-to-end inline solution consists of a jumbo unwinder, web cleaning unit, and Xeikon CX500 digital press followed by a water-based varnishing module and a slitting and waste removal unit before a wallpaper rewinder.
Delivering high profitability and mass customisation capabilities, the Xeikon CX500 toner press prints in full rotary mode with variable repeat lengths, in true 1200dpi resolution.
In addition, it offers sustainability performance with optimised energy consumption and eco-friendly toners that are odorless and contain no harmful substances. The toners also score high for lightfastness and are compliant with a host of industry regulations.
Visitors are also able to see innovative examples of how Xeikon’s fully integrated and sustainable manufacturing technology can be used to drive more growth.
In cooperation with customer Färggrossen, which is one of Sweden’s largest suppliers of paints and wallpapers, the stand also features a new interactive kiosk concept that allows customers to choose, customise, visualise and order wallpaper in store.
Meanwhile, a large feature wall displays art wallpaper with a unique 3D clay effect designed by wall deco customer belarteSTUDIO another Xeikon customer with a unique design philosophy.
“Wall decoration is one of the many segments where Xeikon technology excels. Whether it’s for wallpapers or full-scale murals with individual designs, patterns or photos, the uptake of digital technology continues to grow due to the endless opportunities to revolutionise the status quo,” Van Gaever said.
“But of course, Xeikon’s mission goes beyond wall decoration. We want to show customers in all our markets how they can overcome challenges, expand their scope, and move towards fully automated production.”
