Xeikon recommits to dry toner

Xeikon is reaffirming its commitment to dry toner technology at Hunkeler Innovationdays 2019, Messe Lucerne, February 25-28, as it demonstrates its CX500 series.

Dimitri Van Gaever, market segment manager at Xeikon, says, “We are excited to show how dry toner complements inkjet solutions in the production environment of a broad array of high quality, high value and high coverage applications.

“We are already seeing this approach work well for our customers and HID is the perfect show to further demonstrate the possibilities.”

The Xeikon CX500 helps printing operations around the globe address key market trends in the printing industry, with the company contending that it can handle the challenge of offset quality books covers and dust jackets for JIT book production.

Van Gaever says, “Running full speed high coverage image content on thick standard stock while keeping maximum resolution is an interesting value proposition. But basically, in any application segment where consistent high print quality is critical, there is high demand for reliable and affordable production platforms, and that’s where our dry toner technology comes in.”

The press is based on a new generation dry toner platform that Xeikon says is ready for Industry 4.0. It features a unique web width up to 520mm and full rotary 30m/min printing at maximum resolution in a 5 colour setup.

It runs Xeikon’s Cheetah technology, designed specifically to cope with higher speeds and ensuring a reliable and proven printing quality with 1200 dpi 4bps and proprietary screening libraries. Its new operator interface features both interactivity and connectivity, and is complemented by the Xeikon X-800 digital front-end, which is unmatched in enabling consistent print quality in combination with industry-leading productivity.
