Taiwanese printer installs Xeikon 3030 Plus Label & Package Printing Pres

(PresseBox) (Eede, The Netherlands, )
Leading international Taiwanese label and decoration company CymMetrik Group has invested in a XEIKON 3030 Plus to gain the short-run digital advantage that can be used on conventional substrates.

Headquartered in Taipei, CymMetrik is a leading provider of quality labelling solutions for the food and beverage, health and beauty, and industrial sectors, as well as producing transfer films for plastic decoration applications.

With manufacturing bases in both Taiwan and China, the company also has sales offices in Hong Kong and the USA to serve its global customer base.

At its Taipei production plant, CymMetrik offers letterpress and screen printing services. However, the company began to notice an evolving market demand trend towards flexible short-run jobs that require faster turn-around and delivery time and decided that a strategic investment in digital print was necessary for it to maintain its leading edge.

"For us, it is strategically important to start with digital printing," CymMetrik explained. "After evaluation of the different options on the market, it was clear that the best entry level equipment that could help us access this new market segment is a XEIKON press."

Enabling conventional substrates

The XEIKON full rotary dry toner electrophotography printing technology is an attractive feature for a market leader such as CymMetrik due to its light-fastness. Its VOC emission-free and 100% halogen-free toner formulation that meets FDA food-contact requirements are also crucial benefits that help printers meet brand owners' stringent quality and safety requirements.

In addition, the cutting-edge technology allows CymMetrik to use substrates without specific pre-treatment or coating - including self-adhesive label stocks, paper, and transparent and opaque films.

"The most important feature for us was the XEIKON 3030 Plus's ability to use substrates that do not need a special coating and are readily available on the market, making it very convenient for our business," said CymMetrik.

Launched at drupa 2012, the XEIKON 3030 Plus label and package printing press, is a member of the high performing Xeikon 3000 Series of five-color digital label presses, originally introduced in 2010. It features true 1200 x 3600 dpi addressability with variable dot density, and runs at a maximum speed of 15m/min at five colors, and at a maximum web width of 330mm. The machine can be upgraded in both speed and width in the field.

The XEIKON 3030 Plus offers printers the ability to process a wide range of labelling jobs with its five color stations - four for standard process colors and the fifth for spot colors, security toner, or oqaque white to create a 'no-label' look or transparent labels. Print speed is unaffected by the number of colors used, nor by the repeat length of the job.

Going beyond its sales and installation service, Xeikon has planned a two-step pre-installation training for CymMetrik to maximise the efficiency of the press port-installation training to be held at the Taipei facility. A theoretical and hands on introduction training has already been conducted for CymMetrik at the Xeikon Demo center in Chicago. This will be followed by an advanced training session at the XEIKON HQ in Brussels.
