Commercial Label Products have increased their productivity by installing the new Xeikon 3300 digital label press. The new equipment will add to an already impressive digital line-up at the trade label printer (HP Indigo 4050 and Jetrion Inkjet).
The Xeikon 3300 web-based press has a top speed of 19.2 meters of label production per minute. The five-colour engine provides for the four standard process colours plus a choice of spot colour, special security toner for anti-counterfeiting applications, or a one-pass opaque white for the “no label” look on transparent material. The press is capable of handling an unrivalled range of substrates including self-adhesive label stocks, paper, transparent and opaque foils, and paperboard. The press handles a substrate width of 330mm, and provides for an imaging width of 322mm. The environmentally friendly dry toner electrophotography imaging process enables the use of conventional substrates without the need for coating or pre-treatment. Additionally the toner is compliant with FDA regulations related to indirect food contact and direct food contact
Commercial Label Products prints self adhesive labels in every shape and size, and can produce labels up to eight colours and provide a wide range of finishing capabilities, including lamination, varnishing, foil blocking, and embossing.
Commenting on the need to add Xeikon equipment to his line-up, Nigel Painton, Managing Director of Commercial Label Products, said: "All of the current equipment on the market has its strengths. By adding Xeikon we have recognised the continuing improvements being made by the manufacturer of this equipment. It offers a number of benefits: the ability to produce an excellent solid white is certainly very impressive; as is the fact that the machine doesn't slow down when adding extra colours into the mix.
