Xeikon, an innovator in digital color printing, announced today that it will be showing the Xeikon 3030Plus in a roll to roll configuration at Expo Print Digital 2013 in Brazil. In cooperation with its Brazilian dealer PTC Graphic Systems, Xeikon will present highly productive, high quality digital label printing on booth B04. Expo Print Digital 2013 will be held from March 13 to 16 at the Expo Center Norte, Blue Pavilion in Sao Paolo.
“The interest in digital printing is really picking up in Latin America, and we have recently sold a number of digital presses there”, explains Patrick Pittoors, Sales Manager LATAM for Xeikon, “Xeikon has installed a service hub in the area to support our expansion in the region, and be closer to our customers. Xeikon’s live demonstration of the Xeikon 3030Plus at Expo Print Digital will enable Brazilian label converters to see a top notch digital press in action and discover the power of digital label printing.”
Entry level with extra capacity
The Xeikon 3030Plus is a member of the Xeikon 3000 Series that consists of five different digital presses designed for the label and packaging market, differing in speed and printing width capability. As entry level press, the Xeikon 3030Plus achieves high productivity while printing the highest quality. This presses is ideal for customer who want to get experienced with digital printing and, as the business grows, upgrade on site to higher capacity. The higher capacity can be achieved through faster speed or increasing the print width capabilities, all without making any concessions in terms of quality.
Similar to all Xeikon 3000 Series models, the Xeikon 3030Plus utilizes high precision LED-array imaging technology, which combines true 1200 dpi resolution at 4-bit per spot to deliver the finest print quality. Incorporating Xeikon’s unique full rotary printing technology, combined with virtually unlimited variable repeat length, the printing speed of the press is 15m/min and is not affected by either the label size or the number of colors being imaged. The Xeikon 3030Plus is capable of printing on an unrivalled range of substrates, including various self-adhesive materials constructions including co-extruded films, Bopp, PVC and PET, paperboards and paper grades from 40 to 350 gsm, as well as transparent and opaque PET films.
The Xeikon 3030Plus is driven by the X-800 Digital Front-End, just as all Xeikon 3000 Series models. Based on open standards, the X-800 can be integrated into any production environment. Its modular set-up allows label printers to manage different production elements in the most efficient manner. Prepress functions, such as impositions and color management, can optionally be performed in the prepress environment, allowing the press operator to focus on production. The X-800 also allows easy inclusion of metadata functionalities, such as sequential numbers and/or barcodes.
