Xeikon will be exhibiting for the first time at Salon de l’Emballage 2014 in Paris, France, in November 2014.
The company will present its enhanced Folding Carton Suite that now offers a basic press configuration where the print stations are equipped with orange toner, in combination with CMYK.
The extended color gamut achieved with this configuration ensures the accurate production of a wider range of brand colors.
Producing folding cartons digitally faciliates specific seasonal packaging, intensive test marketing, just-in-time delivery contracts and customization of shorter runs and appeals to smaller geographic and demographic market segments.
The Folding Carton Suite produces a ready-to-use package, making it easy for customers to configure an efficient and cost-effective set-up for the digital production of folding cartons.
At Emballage, Xeikon will also be printing wet-glue wine and champagne labels in cooperation with its customer, Imprimerie Bouley, a family-run label converter located in Burgundy that specializes in wine, spirit and beverage labels.
With ever shorter print runs and delivery requirements, Imprimerie Bouley switched from offset to digital beginning 2013 and opted for a Xeikon 3030 Digital Press – upgraded now to a Xeikon 3300.
The company can produce wet-glue labels with high quality graphics, high speed applications and volume runs and the ease of label removal on returnable containers.
