The Xeikon PX30000 UV inkjet press offers a cost-effective and fast time-to-market solution for short to medium run flexo jobs. It provides the label printer with maximum opportunities to produce the widest range of digitally printed labels with a glossy tactile look, optimum durability and high levels of resistance against scuffing and scratching.

The press is designed to appeal in particular to label printers working in the high-end markets of health and beauty, chemicals and premium beers. Label printers looking for faster turnaround times, reduced production costs and lower complexity will be able to explore new business possibilities offered by digital printing. Xeikon’s PX30000 is now available for demonstration at Xeikon’s Global Innovation Centre and is commercially available in Europe and North America.

Filip Weymans, VP, marketing at Xeikon, said, “The addition of this high-end, digital production label press is an important step in the Xeikon strategy. Adding the Xeikon PX30000 to our portfolio enhances the Xeikon offering that already was the most comprehensive in the market. Label printing companies can now opt for a dry toner press or an inkjet press, for an entry-level solution or a fully geared high-end production press, from a five-colour engine up to a seven-colour engine. We are convinced that the appropriate and ideal choice a printing customer makes depends on their business strategy and their choice of end-use applications.”
