“PacPrint falls in the middle of a very exciting time for Xeikon,” says Bent Serritslev, Xeikon MD Asia Pacific. “First, there was the launch earlier this year of the sales, service and support operation in Australia and New Zealand, followed by the international Xeikon Café event in Belgium, and now our first PacPrint attendance.

“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 a flexibility to meet complex customer demands.

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. 

Visitors can also learn more about Xeikon’s end-to-end solution for folding carton production.

“The Xeikon solutions allow operations to handle workloads efficiently and they also complement longer flexo runs, supporting competitiveness in a range of fields,” says Trevor Crowley, Xeikon ANZ sales GM.

Xeikon is presenting on stand A22 where the Xeikon CX3 digital label press will take centre-stage.

Xeikon’s new ANZ business unit was established after the acquisition of Xeikon by Flint Group. Xeikon ANZ uses its own service engineers to support the presses, with parts and consumables located in Sydney with support from the regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, which hosts the regional technology centre. Flint Group employs 7900 people.
