With over 15 years of experience in digital label printing, Femalabel has always been on the lookout for efficient production solutions, without compromising quality or flexibility. The company started working with Xeikon in 2012, when a Xeikon 3300 and Xeikon 3030Plus were installed to bring production output to a higher level. Since then, the demand for even more capacity only increased so recently Femalabel decided to upgrade to two Xeikon CX3 presses – aka Cheetah. Besides high quality output, the speed of the presses was a key decisive factor for the investment.
Wim Feys, CTO at Femalabel, comments: “We face an increasing demand for speciality products and variable print. That is why we had to dramatically increase our capacity. In addition, many of our customers want their labels to be printed on PE. With the Xeikon CX3 we have found the perfect solution to answer this demand, with the same high quality on all the required substrates.”
One of Femalabel’s specialties is the production of multi-layer labels or Peel & Reveal Labels, small booklets that can contain a lot of information. For some industries it’s important to provide this information next to their branding. “The production of multi-layer labels requires a higher volume than regular labels,” Feys says. “This means we need more output and makes production at a constant speed even more important.”
