VariLane makes it possible to create digital imposition templates for labels with different SKUs, and different sizes, within the same print job. It is a software plug-in to the Xeikon X-800 Digital Front-End (DFE), specifically designed to allow label printers greater flexibility in the production of labels, and greater profit opportunities.
Using VariLane, label printers can maximize efficiency by combining different jobs on the same print run.
The Xeikon X-800 VariLane technology represents a quantum leap forward in optimizing workflows for even greater production efficiency and speed that is already offered by the Xeikon 3000 series of label presses.
The VariLane technology is the culmination of several years of research and development, including substantial input from Xeikon customers about the challenges associated with meeting the demands of increasing consumer SKUs and brands. With traditional and competitive digital technologies, more complex label orders have meant longer set-up times and increasing costs for label printers, along with more pre-production waste. Xeikon’s VariLane technology simplifies this process, taking full advantage of the powerful X-800 DFE, which is designed to automate the printer’s workflow with minimal human intervention.
