NoviPrint streamlines digital label production with Xeikon press

New press increases production capacity in response to the recent surge in volume and shorter print runs.

Dutch label converter NoviPrint has invested in a Xeikon press to streamline its digital label printing and increase its capacity to accommodate the recent surge in volume and shorter print runs.

NoviPrint based in Dordrecht, The Netherlands, employs 25 people and supplies customers across the country, but also across Europe, Africa and South America.

The company produces labels for all kinds of markets, including logistics, food, flora, healthcare and industrial. They specialize in Auto-ID for which they are a full-service provider, also offering label printers and scanners.

After carefully considering available options, NoviPrint chose to go with a Xeikon press for its outstanding application versatility in both food and non-food sectors and its advanced workflow capabilities.

The newly installed Xeikon press is equipped with ICE dry toner, which uses a different core resin to enable fusing at significantly lower temperatures, making it suitable for printing on heat-sensitive substrates, such as PE and direct thermal paper labels which is a requirement for NoviPrint for its activities in the label market.

‘We are proud to announce the addition of a Xeikon digital label press to our machinery,’ said Eric Springvloed, NoviPrint’s general manager. ‘This allows us to expand further and optimize our print shop operations, enabling us to offer our customers an even wider range of labels. The support from Xeikon has been very pleasant throughout.’

NoviPrint's strategic decision to invest in Xeikon technology demonstrates its commitment to providing top-notch label printing services while efficiently adapting to market trends.

‘Since its beginning, Xeikon invested continuously to stay on top of digital workflow. It's great to see that dynamic and innovative companies like NoviPrint recognize this,’ added Danny Mertens, Xeikon’s marketing manager. ‘NoviPrint is passionate about their work and chooses reliable partners that “click” with this philosophy. It makes us proud to be part of this.’
