Xeikon teams up with industry leaders for North American label event

Xeikon Seminar SeriesXeikon is taking the road to educate label printers converters about key developments in the North American label market. As part of ‘Securing a Successful Future’ seminars, Xeikon has teamed up with Flint Group Narrow Web, Label Traxx, Mark Andy and ThermoFlexX, to stage four free regional events in Toronto, Philadelphia, Dallas and Southern California starting this month.

David Wilkins, vice president of sales at Xeikon, said: “Today, there are new challenges and opportunities facing converters. That is why we created these seminar series – to give converters a better understanding of how digital solutions can enable them to better produce shorter run jobs. Through real world customer experiences, industry data and demonstrations, we’ll prove how using digital presses alongside flexo solutions leads to improved efficiency and profitability. It is also a way to share information in the run up to Labelexpo later this year.”

As part of the showcase, Xeikon is delighted to be joined by a number of industry pioneering customers who will share their Xeikon journey, talk about how digital printing helped future-proof their business and secure growth.

These customers will include Action Packaging, which invested in a Xeikon CX3 aka Cheetah to meet the need for a press that delivered the right speed, quality and reliability. Full service label provider The Label Smith, a specialist in custom labels for food and water, installed a Xeikon 3500 digital colour press to support its growing digital business.

Logo Label Printing installed a Xeikon 3030 digital colour press as its third digital printing system because it says there is no trade-off between quality and productivity. As well as its ability to print on virtually any material, Logo Label also liked the fact that the four process colours, plus one of a range of standard or custom-made spot colours, provide an extended colour gamut.

Lake Graphics chose a Xeikon 3030 digital colour press for its broad range of services that include advertising, promotional and label print. It can produce five-colour process on most substrates and graphics of all sizes and shapes.

As part of the roadshow LPC, an industry analyst firm will report the results of a comprehensive market study on the North American labeling sector, conducted in the beginning of 2016. Topics being covered include the profit curve, market sizing, trends by vertical market and run-size pain points for converters.

In addition, there will be presentations by Mark Andy, Flint Group Narrow Web, Label Traxx president and ThermoFlexX will educate on new innovation in their expertise.
