Xeikon introduces Titon technology at Labelexpo Americas

Xeikon America, a division of Flint Group, returns to Labelexpo Americas to introduce Titon technology

Xeikon America, a division of Flint Group, returns to Labelexpo Americas to introduce Titon technology, a new toner formulation offering all the benefits of UV inks without the disadvantages.

The Flint Group/Xeikon promotes two technologies for label printing applications, its Panther technology for UV inkjet, developed for durable, health and beauty labels, and the Cheetah for dry-toner applications, suitable for high-quality wine and spirits and food labels. To meet industry needs for sustainable printing methods and environmentally friendly packaging production, Xeikon is also introducing the Titon technology, featuring a new toner formulation offering all the benefits of UV inks without the disadvantages.

'Xeikon is thrilled to be back at Labelexpo Americas and pleased to introduce the market to our groundbreaking Titon technology, among other technologies focused on providing efficiencies for converters,' commented Donna Covannon, director of marketing for North America at Xeikon.

Visitors to Xeikon’s exhibit at the show can see Xeikon’s Titon samples produced on Xeikon’s Cheetah technology. Titon is food safe and with any additional protective layers provides heat, sunlight, water, scratch, and scuff resistance.

According to the company, it does not migrate through substrates and can be readily removed from paper products during the recycling process. Xeikon’s 'Do More with Less' program is also featured in the booth. This program is designed to help users optimize their productivity with tangible ideas on how to tackle the challenges converters are facing in today’s marketplace.

Xeikon also exhibits its new metallic silver and gold toners, and haptic printing, which is said to allow converters to add metallic embellishments without the need for conventional processes like flexo and hot foil, which can add production complexity and costs.
