Applications such as label and packaging are the focus of its research
Xeikon reported a record sales year in North America with figures over 70 percent over 2016 as the company reports growth in heat transfer, in-mold labeling and folding carton markets.
Dave Wilkins vice president of sales and marketing in the US and Canada said: ‘We have sold multiple units to large commercial printing companies, direct mail companies, major retailers, and promotional item companies and have been successful in the document (direct mail) space along with the tag and label market. We have already booked a number of orders this year and are now expanding our efforts into the heat transfer, IML, and folding carton markets.’
He continued: ‘We believe the markets increasingly recognize the benefits of digital technology and especially appreciate our unique ability to deliver very high quality in short runs. The market is expanding and companies who had not considered buying a digital press due to complexity or cost of acquisition are seeing that they can now make the move into digital press technology with Xeikon.’
