The Xeikon CX3 five-colour digital label press hardware offers variable substrate widths up to 330mm (13 inches). This latest machine now offers PeterLynn a top speed of 30 m/min (96 ft/min). The Xeikon CX3 is the most productive digital label press in its class, and offers all the other benefits that make Xeikon label presses unique. These include full rotary printing, a print resolution of true 1200 x 3600 dpi, toners that meet FDA regulations for food contact, and one pass opaque white toner.
Vicky Waine, Sales & Marketing Manager for PeterLynn, is delighted with the addition of the new digital press: “We have been regularly reaching production capacity on the Xeikon 3300 over the last few months. The additional capacity of the new press will be very welcome. The latest toners that we can use will also allow us to expand the range of work that we can produce. Because of the lower fusing temperatures of Xeikon's ICE toners, we can now work with PE materials, which are particularly heat sensitive. This will open the door for us to work with the flexible materials that are used for a lot of cosmetics products.”
In addition to a growing business in cosmetics, PeterLynn also has strong relationships with a number of companies involved in the brewery sector – companies that the company has worked with since their very early days. “This has expanded more recently into the wider beverages market, including gin and wine suppliers,” added Vicky. The ability to print one pass opaque white toner has been a key factor in PeterLynn choosing Xeikon.
