USA • Dry toner developments were unveiled by Xeikon at Labelexpo Americas. The new next-generation QB toner replaces QA-I and ICE toners for Xeikon 3000 series and Cheetah digital label presses. QB toner is now being shipped with all new label & packaging presses from Xeikon. Existing customers will be able to upgrade their presses in early 2019.
Xeikon QB toners are available in formulations that require high temperatures for fusing (QB-I) and lower fusing temperatures (QB-IC and QB-CH). According to Xeikon hese formulations are designed to be compliant with today’s regulations and with emerging regulations. Xeikon has replaced or omitted compounds in these toners that are now allowed but may potentially be affected by future regulatory action.
“Dry toner continues to be the preferred technology for food-save digitally printing packaging. Many label printers are already using Xeikon digital presses for food-related applications, and this new QB toner will ensure they stay at the forefront of regulatory compliance”, explains Filip Weymans, Xeikon’s Vice president of marketing.
The company unveils entry-level Xeikon 3030 based Label Discovery package, an entry-level label printing and converting solution that includes the Xeikon 3030 digital label press and the new entryDcoat, an inline or offline digital converting line, according to Weymans.
On display in Chicago is further the Xeikon PX3000 UV inkjet label press, the toner-based Xeikon 3500 and CX3 presses. Xeikon is located in the Flint Group stand (hall A, #728) at Labelexpo Americas 2018 which ends on Thursday, 27 September and is also part of the Automation Arena.
