Jeroen Van Bauwel, director of product management said,”Xeikon has been offering digital presses into the market for more than 30 years. But often, our customers’ digital business runs faster than their press and after a few years they already need to re-invest in a faster model. The returned press still has a long lifetime ahead so with our REX programme we are remanufacturing these older presses by running them through our factory, implementing all recent updates and upgrading the digital front end to the latest version of our workflow: X-800 6.0. “
The digital printing specialists have added Xeikon 3030 REX, its Label Discovery package, which was introduced last year. The Xeikon 3030 REX is an entry-level press, which uses Xeikon dry toner technology, and is certified for food safety, therefore giving access to the significant food label markets.He added, “The presses that have gone through the REX programme are then offered again into the market at a very attractive investment cost. Through the REX programme, we are making our well-known digital presses accessible to converters new to digital, with limited investment budgets”.
The press has a 1,200 dpi print resolution, with an X-800 6.0, which can be integrated with existing MIS systems and enable a fully automated job preparation.
Van Bauwel stated, “Beside the benefits of our press technology, a Xeikon investment can be regarded as long term security. When necessary, our presses can be upgraded on-site for speed and width when the business evolves to that need. We believe the Xeikon 3030 REX will stimulate an even faster adoption of digital in the label market. Not forcing converters to make concessions about serving certain markets but addressing 90% of all end-user applications in the label industry. This will be an investment which can grow with their needs over time as their business evolves.”
Xeikon mentioned that the remanufactured presses sold through the REX programme will have the same warranty as all new Xeikon presses.
