USA • Xeikon launched the Xeikon Cheetah digital colour press at the Labelexpo Americas 2014. The company say that the new press is 60% faster than any other model in its current press portfolio. The new digital can output labels at 98 ft/min (30 m/min). The new Xeikon Cheetah will be available commercially during 2015.

The Xeikon Cheetah can handle substrate widths of up to 13 inches (330 mm) with a true print resolution of 1200 x 3600 dpi. It utilizes full rotary printing where the press speeds are independent of the number of colours used and/or the repeat length of the job. Full rotary printing also makes step-and-repeat and subsequent finishing operations straightforward. The Cheetah includes the use of dry toners that meet FDA regulations for food contact and the ability to print opaque white toner in one pass.
