Hunkeler Innovation Days 2019 will be held at Messe Lucerne, 25 - 28 February.

A division of Flint Group and a leader in digital color printing technology, Xeikon will launch ‘The Power of Dry Toner’ campaign at Hunkeler Innovation Days 2019, Messe Lucerne, 25 – 28 February. It is noteworthy that in 2015, Xeikon joined Flint Group to create a new ‘Digital Printing Solutions’ division for the leading global print consumables and solution provider to the print and packaging industry. Xeikon’s latest move will likely to leverage the sale volume of the company’s consumables as HID 2019 is an important global event for the participants.

“Our power of dry toner campaign combines all facets of our operation to reinforce the positioning of our dry toner technology,” explains Dimitri Van Gaever, market segment manager at Xeikon. “Our customers are looking for high quality solutions that are very productive on all types and weights of stocks. We also see them increasing volumes, and inkjet isn’t able to produce these applications at the required quality levels.”

Xeikon is working on new toner, fusing, conditioning assembly and image quality technology developments. They deliver greater productivity, even higher quality and a wider application range on Xeikon’s duplex dry toner platforms for graphic arts and commercial print.

Van Gaever further said, “We are excited to share details of these with HID2019 visitors and how, together, they ensure a compelling total cost of ownership.”

Xeikon states that dry toner is the most sustainable digital print technology. It is complementary to high speed inkjet while offering the highest availability in the market place.

“It is the technology of choice for a set of high value, highly profitable applications where Xeikon technology excels and this helps ‘mid-range’ customers to become or remain successful. It is also a clear alternative for high risk investments that force companies into a relentless race to find ever increasing volumes and produce these at breakneck speeds, driving down prices and margins of ‘more of the same’ commoditized print products”, said Van Gaever.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
