Xeikon 9800 at IGAS 2018


Xeikon, which is now a part of the Flint Group, will show the business production capabilities and door opening opportunities presented by the Xeikon 9800 digital press at IGAS 2018 held from 26 to 31 July 2018 at the East Halls of the Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo, Japan. At its stand 24 in Hall 4, Xeikon will highlight how its 9800 digital press with its quality and versatility in digital document and commercial printing can print on a wide range of untreated substrates ranging from 40 gsm to 300 gsm. Its Xeikon QA-CD toner and high-quality imaging system deliver a print resolution of 1200 x 3600 dpi with variable dot density for unmatched printing quality. In addition, it will show how it is ideal for high-quality direct marketing jobs when integrated with variable data capabilities of the Xeikon X-800 digital front-end.

At the show, the Xeikon 9800 digital press, which is 5-color on both sides (duplex) press, will be equipped with a large-roll unwinder, a variable width stacker and a Web Finishing Module (WFM) for extra protection of the prints. Available QA-CD toners include CMYK, Red, Green, Blue, Extra Magenta and Super Black as well as White and Clear (UV reflecting) toner. On request, Xeikon can also provide special colors specified by printers and their brand owner clients.

The 9800 press delivers outstanding print quality at speeds up to 21.5 meters per minute at reduced consumables cost. Xeikon says this makes it the most productive digital color press in the Xeikon portfolio with 5+5 single-pass duplex printing. Xeikon will also present the possibilities delivered by its labels and folding carton digital production solutions.

Bent Serritslev, Xeikon’s general manager Asia, says, “IGAS is for a long time the reference show in Asia and brings in a lot of international visitors. In the past few years, Xeikon has been investing heavily in developing a full team of experts to support this growth. This team, coming from India, SEA, China and Japan will be present at IGAS 2018 to welcome visitors and discuss their business needs.” Vikram Saxena from Xeikon India will be at the IGAS event.
