Telrol – Six Xeikon CX3 presses ordered
THE NETHERLANDS • Xeikon has signed one of the biggest deals in its company history so far as they sold six CX3 digital presses for Dutch label printer Telrol Group.
The Group’s first digital press investment was a Xeikon 3300 in 2009, bought shortly after visiting Labelexpo Brussels. It was the start of Telrol’s Digital Centre of Excellence in Almere which over time gradually grew to five digital presses. In 2015 Telrol started a successful pilot project with a CX3. Today the center boasts the biggest digital capacity in the Benelux and Europe, as it has nine Xeikon systems. All presses are running application specific toner systems: ICE for the 3300 presses and QA-CH toners for the CX3 presses.
Accoding to Hoessein Hadaoui, CEO of Telrol, one of the reasons for this investment was the specifically-designed Cheetah toner, developed for high speeds and based on the ICE toner, which has performed well for Telrol with its other Xeikon presses. The reduced operational cost, together with the benefits of dry toner such as meeting FDA regulations for food contact and offering the ability to print opaque white toner in one pass is ideal for the product mix Telrol delivers.
The Xeikon CX3 is a five color 1200dpi high-speed production press with a top speed of 98 fpm (30 m/min) and impressive uptime. In addition to the standard CMYK + White, the fifth station can be used to print gamut extension colors or security colors without reducing productivity. The 1200 x 3600 dpi digital press is dedicated solely to the production of self-adhesive/pressure sensitive labels.
