C5 Design: A first with inline laser finishing

Xeicon 3050 with DCoat C5 Design

MEXICO. The company has installed the first Xeikon 3050 digital press combined with a DCoat converting unit including a laser cutter in Mexico.

C5 Design is rapidly growing in the high-quality, short delivery time self-adhesive label and specialised label markets like heat transfer.

Xeikon was the only supplier to provide the integral label production solution including finishing and financing. C5 Design – sister company of E4, a leading producer of hand soaps and antibacterial gels for Mexico and abroad – was set up to handle all the company’s internal label requirements in the most economical and direct way.

These requirements mainly involve justin- time deliveries of both smaller and bigger label run lengths, but always in the highest possible quality.

This clearly requires a production solution that is highly flexible in both printing and converting. The configuration of a wide Xeikon 3050 digital press hooked up to a Xeikon DCoat 500 converting unit including a laser cutter, proves to perfectly match and exceed these expectations.

The Xeikon Vectorizor software, the missing link between digital printing and finishing, can directly control inline laser die-cutting devices. Apart from the unique substrate width (500 mm/19.7”), Xeikon presents high productivity by full rotary printing independent of either the number of colours or the repeat length of the job.

All of this in true 1200 x 3600 dpi print resolution, with a wide range of variable printing capabilities. On top of that, the Xeikon QA-I dry toner offers high lightfastness, one-pass opaque White, no VOC emission and compliance with FDA food safety regulations.
