Xeikon NV and Label Vision Systems Inc (LVS®) today announced a global partnership at Labelexpo Americas 2012 in Chicago.
Xeikon is an innovator in digital printing technology and delivers webfed digital color presses for labels and packaging applications, as well as commercial printing. LVS® provides print quality inspection systems for both off-line and in-line applications. LVS® products are unique in the world as they inspect variable printed data and barcodes to guidelines established by the International Standards Organization (ISO).
With the increased quality demand from brand owners and a need to optimize production processes, vision inspection systems have found a great fit not only in the pharmaceutical and security labels markets, but in the broader market as well. The LVS® 7000 will be used at Xeikon Labelexpo Americas booth, #6135 in Hall F of the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, to inspect the prints produced on the Xeikon 3300 digital printing press.
“Xeikon is a leading digital press manufacturer and we are glad to partner with an industry leader in digital labels,” said Teri DeMarco, Marketing Manager for LVS®. “The LVS® systems are suited for inspecting variable data and in this way they perfectly integrate with Xeikon digital presses.”
“Xeikon provides complete solutions to our customers,” said Filip Weymans, Xeikon’s director of segment marketing and business development, Labels & Packaging. “To achieve this, we have been forming partnerships with key suppliers in the industry of print media, software, consumables and equipment or tools manufacturers. Our partnership with LVS® is important because it fits perfectly into our Aura partnership program, and in this way Xeikon can offer our customers true Label Vision Systems when they need it.”
In addition to its booth activities, Xeikon will also have a significant presence in the Package Printing Zone as well as the Eco-Village. Xeikon solutions are designed with the overarching principles of profitability, quality, flexibility and sustainability in mind. With these guiding principles and a deep, intimate knowledge of its customers, Xeikon continues to be one of the industry's leading innovators of products and solutions.
