– Xeikon installed the latest Xeikon 3030 digital press at Cintas y Especialidades Impresas or CEI company in Mexico. Decisive arguments in the decision making process were high quality, constant production speed and the capability to meet new customer and market requirements.
“Our strength is quality. High quality!”
“At CEI, superb quality refers to 2400x3600 dpi print resolution, high light fastness, unique one-pass opaque white, FDA compliance for use with food, extensive use of color control and color management, all the way up to the use of several security features inside the labels. The digital technology has to match and preferably beat the conventional quality. That ‘s what our Xeikon 3030 does”, states Jesus Ramirez, owner of CEI in Mexico.
Consistent and reliable label production
CEI needed a full rotary printing solution constantly delivering high productivity independent of either the number of colors or the repeat length of the job. Their digital press had to at least match their conventional presses in terms of quality in order to make sense as an investment. Ramirez and his team found what they were looking for in the Xeikon 3030.
Substrates without coating for easier sourcing and lower cost
Unlike other digital presses, the Xeikon label production solution does not require either pre-coating of the standard substrates or selecting pre-coated hence more expensive materials. That is a straighforward benefit in times of cost reduction. It also broadens sourcing options, again improving cost efficiency.
Dry toner is durable and FDA compliant
When your are in the food label business, like Ramirez, Xeikon’s toner durability and the FDA compliance to certain food applications are definite plusses!
Stable machine design and reliable service
“The Xeikon 3030 to us is similar to our conventional press approach: full rotary printing, constant printing speed, roll based and good densities in one pass. But equally important is Xeikon’s excellent performance in terms of professional service and support for all applications“, concludes Ramirez.
