XEIKON EXPANDS LABEL PRODUCTION CAPABILITIES WITH ‘ONE-PASS’ OPAQUE WHITE PRINTING

Xeikon, a leader in digital color printing innovation, announced today that its latest label presses offer converters a much higher productivity with its ‘one-pass’ opaque white toner to create the ‘no label or label-less look’ on transparent labels.

Transparent - or clear film - self-adhesive labels have emerged as a highly desirable option for companies looking to enhance their brand image and seeking an alternative to glue-attached paper labels. “Clearly, an increasing number of brands are recognizing that they can achieve a higher impact on the shelf with this ‘no label or label-less look’, as it provides a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance,” said Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager - Labels and Packaging at Xeikon. “Xeikon stands alone as the only digital color label press manufacturer with a ‘one-pass’ opaque white capability. As a result, label converters can now create this look with a much higher productivity on the Xeikon technology. We’re happy to offer this added competitive advantage to the market.”

All the Xeikon label presses come equipped with five color stations: four for the standard process colors (CMYK) and the fifth station for gamut expansion or spot colors, including its ‘one-pass’ opaque white toner.
