More to see at the Xeikon Café 2017
If you attended a previous edition of the Xeikon Café, a big difference you will notice this year is the scale. The number of labels and packaging applications are increased to almost 30, with more variety including labels, cartons, pouches and even corrugated – fully from concept to production. You will witness very innovative technology that demonstrates how digital production can be beneficial, especially in new emerging market segments. Working together, all 37 industry partners of the Xeikon Café will show off what can be done by fully integrating solutions.
Another not-to-be-missed part of the 2017 Xeikon Café is the Conference program, elevated to the next level in business and technical education. A number of highly experienced speakers who will touch on the different challenges in the market are being lined up. You will also hear brand owners and customers share their personal experiences with digital production, next to partners who will highlight technical aspects.
The Xeikon Café will help you determine whether or not a digital solution is valuable for your business at this time, or perhaps in the future. This event will demystify the hype around digital production of packaging, and help you understand where the real value lies.
Discover new applications and opportunities
Suppliers continue to provide new workflow, substrates and finishing solutions that open up new opportunities in digital printing capabilities. Label and packaging sectors are broadening into lightweight unsupported papers, stand-up pouches, corrugated liner and a fast growing segment of paper cups. You will see examples of all of this at the Xeikon Café.
Food safety in packaging is another important aspect you will hear about. One of the many advanced applications for example is lightweight (21gsm) paper labels that are directly affixed onto cheese balls! How much closer can you be to the food… Another example is coffee cup production which is seeing strong growth in many regions in the world. There will also be live demonstrations of applications and solutions in pharma, health & beauty, confectionery, D-I-Y, automotive and even media.
At the Xeikon Café, realistic ideas are shown, equipment that is in daily use at converters running commercially viable jobs and applications. It is your chance to hear directly from Xeikon and our partners about the range of digital applications out there, and in turn, grow the number of solutions you offer. There will be lots of learning opportunities, both from the applications running live at the event as well as from speakers during the Conference. Undoubtedly, the Xeikon Café will help you decide on the right strategy for your business.
