Pushing Production Boundaries
The launch of the Xeikon 3500 in May 2010 addressed the need for more capacity by offering a wider print width up to 516 mm. "The Xeikon 3500 enables the cost-effective production of volumes beyond the 4,000 linear meters using digital technology. Before, digital printing still had capacity limitations compared with traditional label printing and we filled this productivity gap. Plus the press is opening up new application opportunities with the same proven quality of our Xeikon 3000 Series presses in diverse market segments," says Filip Weymans, Business Development Manager Labels & Packaging at Xeikon.
Capable of handling web widths up from 250 mm up to 516 mm and printing at a speed of 19.2 m/min – regardless of the amount of colors used or the size of labels – the Xeikon 3500 is almost twice as productive as the closest competitor system. Equipped with the high-precision LED-based imaging head, the press features the unique combination of 1200 dpi resolution and 4 bit variable dot density. The result is an excellent image quality with vibrant colors, sharp details and subtle contrast for high-impact labels. Like all Xeikon 3000 Series presses, the Xeikon 3500 is capable of printing on an unmatched range of substrates including self-adhesive films, unsupported film, paper, transparent and opaque foils, and paperboard with weights ranging from 40 to 350 gsm.
The Xeikon 3500 utilizes Xeikon’s QA-I toner, which meets all the applicable FDA guidelines for indirect food contact under room temperature as well as direct food contact for dry food substances containing no surface oil or fat. QA-I toners also deliver levels of light fastness far exceeding others on the market today.
