Xeikon adds entry-level digital label production option

Label Discovery combines a Xeikon 3030, an entry-level web-fed digital label press, and the new entryDCoat, a digital converting line that can be used in-line or off-line with the Xeikon 3030

Xeikon has introduced an entry-level label printing and converting option, Label Discovery, to allow more printers to, ‘embrace digital technology and capture a business potential that previously required a steep investment – the crucial business of producing short-run labels.’

Label Discovery combines a Xeikon 3030, an entry-level web-fed digital label press, and the new entryDCoat, a digital converting line that can be used in-line or off-line with the Xeikon 3030. Xeikon noted that Label Discovery is offered at a price point that ‘brings the lucrative label market squarely within reach for label converters of all sizes’.

David Wilkins, vice president of sales for the North American market at Xeikon, explained: ‘Although digital label printing has become a fast-growing mainstream business, some companies are still reluctant to invest in the technology – either due to the cost or lack of a truly professional-quality entry-level solution. The lower cost of the Xeikon Label Discovery solution enables these companies to embrace digital technology and capture a business potential that previously required a steep investment – the crucial business of producing short-run labels.

‘The Label Discovery solution is a turnkey label production system that provides everything needed to offer an expanded range of services to their customers and to experience the benefits digital production can bring to their businesses. In addition to enabling an affordable entry into this lucrative market, the Label Discovery solution is a platform that can be field upgraded in terms of productivity as the business grows, ensuring long-term viability of the investment.’

Label Discovery will be featured on the Xeikon stand at Labelexpo Americas 2018, taking place September 25-27 at the Donald E. Stephens Exhibition Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

Filip Weymans, vice president of marketing at Xeikon, added: ‘We are looking forward to featuring the Label Discovery solution at a busy and exciting Labelexpo Americas. We’ll also be demonstrating the Xeikon PX3000 UV inkjet label press, as well as the toner-based Xeikon 3500 and Xeikon CX3 presses, offering attendees the ability to evaluate multiple technologies to determine what best meets their label needs.

‘We also are pleased to be participating in the American debut of Labelexpo’s Automation Arena, illustrating the industry 4.0 enabled, automated self-adhesive digital label production. Xeikon label experts will be available throughout the show to speak with visitors about their business needs and provide guidance on the best possible ways to profit and grow.’
