With a high level of application flexibility, this versatile press will suit printers working in the production of high-quality books and direct mail, PoS materials, security print and general commercial print applications. The Xeikon SX20000 is available for physical and online demonstrations at Xeikon’s Global Innovation Center in Antwerp, Belgium, and is globally commercially available as of Q1 2021.
Dimitri Van Gaever, Market Segment Director, states, “In today’s printing world, we all know it’s about delivering value which encompasses quality, performance, sustainability and competitive pricing. With the launch of the Xeikon SX20000, Xeikon is offering printers in the graphic arts and commercial markets an investment opportunity – a press with unequaled capabilities at an attractive investment level. The Xeikon SX20000 has all the innovations of its flagship predecessor, the Xeikon SX30000, which makes it a consistent, reliable all-round performer, able to run at a printing width of 508mm on a broad range of substrates at 1200x3600dpi at speeds of 20m/min (66ft/min) or 1700 B2 sheets/hour. This single-pass, duplex press is geared towards printers looking to streamline and optimise the production of high-value, premium quality print with high coverage content on high-quality papers. On top of that, the Xeikon SX20000 offers scalability with upgrades available in both speed and colour stations. With this new press, we are bringing to market a full rotary machine based on SIRIUS dry toner technology driven by Xeikon’s powerful X-800 workflow for full automation.”
