CS Labels – Adding third Xeikon CX3 digital press
UK • Award-winning digital label printer CS Labels has invested in its third Xeikon CX3 press a little over 12 months after installing its first. As one of the fastest digital label presses on the market with printing speeds of 30 m/min, the Xeikon CX3 is 56% faster than any other press in the current Xeikon portfolio.
“Having undertaken an extensive review of the inkjet options currently available on the market, we decided that a third press offered the best cost effective solution to improve our production efficiency. By standardising our production facility, capturing the benefits of 30 m/min to using the very latest toners, we have been able to significantly reduce our production cost”, states Simon Smith, CS Labels Managing Director.
Filip Weymans, Xeikon’s Director Segment Marketing Labels & Packaging, adds: “CS Labels was chosen as a pilot site for the Xeikon CX3 due its commitment to the digital print process. The fact that is has now has three presses is as much a testament to its business vision as it is to the capabilities of the press.”
Says Smith: “The dry toner platform has enabled CS labels to uniquely differentiate. Beyond the printing press and its technology, the X-800 workflow is an important cornerstone in the unique offering we provide. With the VariLane we optimize costs and with Vectorizor we seamlessly integrate with laser diecutting or the standard variable data tools to deliver upon seemingly common labels but including high variability.”
