Digital printing technology company Xeikon has adopted a UV inkjet platform based on Panther technology.

Called the Xeikon PX3000, the UV inkjet press is made to complement its dry toner digital label press portfolio.

Xeikon has been a leader in dry toner printed labels, which the company says offer value and high quality to the market.

The latest platform offers an option where dry toner is not the ideal solution.

The UV inkjet press can create such things as digitally printed labels, which were previously produced on UV flexo or screen-print, where a glossy appearance and tactile look and feel is wanted.

The development of Xeikon’s production inkjet technology expands its product portfolio (Xeikon 3000 Series and Xeikon CX3, aka Cheetah) and application reach.

Xeikon Panther technology uses PantherCure UV inks and customers can take advantage of the familiar Xeikon X-800 workflow connected to the new Xeikon PX3000.

“UV inkjet and dry toner are complementary offerings that extend the range of applications which are better produced digitally,” Filip Weymans, VP of marketing for Xeikon, said.

“Together, they offer a robust solution portfolio that responds to the demanding brand owner today and the requirements put forward to the label converter.”
