First Attendance Uunderlines XEIKON’S Direct and Dedicated Australian Organization

Xeikon announces it will showcase its cutting-edge label and packaging technology for the first time at PacPrint 2017, one of Australia’s leading trade shows for the printing and packaging industry taking place May 23-26 in Melbourne. Xeikon is presenting on stand A22 where a Xeikon CX3 digital label press will take centre-stage: www.xeikon.com/CX3.

Xeikon’s first PacPrint attendance follows the creation of a dedicated sales, service and support operation in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year. The new business unit was established after the acquisition of Xeikon by Flint Group and a thorough review of synergies between the companies. Xeikon ANZ uses its own service engineers to support the presses, with parts and consumables located in Sydney and with demo / benchmark support from the regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, which hosts the regional technology centre with both simplex and duplex technology installed.

“PacPrint falls in the middle of a very exciting time for Xeikon. First there was the launch of the direct operation here, followed by the international Xeikon Café event in Belgium, and now our first PacPrint attendance,” comments Bent Serritslev, Xeikon Managing Director Asia Pacific.” We look forward meeting our Australian customers at the show to share updates on our local organization and latest technology developments such as the recently announced Panther technology.”

Running live at the show will be a Xeikon CX3 aka Cheetah which offers label printers faster running speed, lower operating costs and an unseen flexibility to meet complex customer demands without compromising quality, reliability or consistency, whatever the label. This five-colour press, dedicated solely to the production of self-adhesive/pressure sensitive labels, offers variable substrate widths up to 330mm and comes with a top speed of 30m/min. It offers all the benefits that make Xeikon presses unique: full rotary printing, true 1200 x 3600 dpi print resolution, food safe toners and one pass opaque white toner. Next to the standard CMYK + White, the fifth station can be used to print gamut extension or security colours without reducing productivity.

“Finding the right solution for every label or packaging project is crucial for businesses today. The Xeikon solutions allow operations to handle workloads efficiently and in a way that would allow their business to grow. They also complement longer flexo runs supporting competitiveness in a range of fields,” concludes Trevor Crowley, Xeikon ANZ Sales General Manager.
