Xeikon has announced the launch of its REX program supporting printers looking for entry-level, affordable digital production solutions for shorter runs, just-in-time production, and customization.

The REX program will offer a range of remanufactured Xeikon presses providing an attractive and affordable option for printers and converters looking to expand their business with digital applications.

“Xeikon has been offering digital presses into the market for more than 30 years. But often, our customers’ digital business runs faster than their press and after a few years, they already need to re-invest in a faster model. The returned press still has a long lifetime ahead so with our REX program we are remanufacturing these older presses by running them through our factory, implementing all recent updates and upgrading the digital front end to the latest version of our workflow: X-800 6.0,” Jeroen Van Bauwel, director of product management states, said.

The presses that have gone through the REX program are then offered again into the market at a very attractive investment cost, Van Bauwel added. “Through the REX program, we are making our well-known digital presses accessible to converters new to digital, with limited investment budgets. REX stands for Remanufactured, Ecological: Xeikon quality,” he said.

Xeikon 3030 REX investment level below € 200.000

The Xeikon 3030 REX is an entry-level press for converters looking to take their first steps into digital immediately into the professional and industrial space. This is a full color digital press with the benefit of opaque white which gives access to health and beauty markets, premium beer and other end-use markets in the label space.

The 3030 REX uses Xeikon dry toner technology, certified for food safety, therefore giving access to the significant food label markets. The 1200 dpi print resolution ensures converters can also serve offset label market as well the flexo quality market. Xeikon’s digital front end, X-800 6.0, can be integrated with existing MIS systems, allow fully automated job preparation and handle complex variable data jobs with ease.

“Beside the benefits of our press technology, a Xeikon investment can be regarded as long term security. When necessary, our presses can be upgraded on-site for speed and width when the business evolves to that need. We believe the Xeikon 3030 REX will stimulate an even faster adoption of digital in the label market. Not forcing converters to make concessions about serving certain markets but addressing 90% of all end-use applications in the label industry. This will be an investment which can grow with their needs over time as their business evolves,” Van Bauwel said.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
