Xeikon has confirmed its participation at Fespa Global Print Expo 2023, in Germany, where the broad versatility and high flexibility of its digital printing technology will be on show, along with new innovative concepts developed in cooperation with customers. With over 30 different applications on display on stand B2-A20, Xeikon will demonstrate the full force of its digital print portfolio at Messe Munich on 23–26 May 2023. 

The company will be exhibiting integrated end-to-end solutions designed to give printers the freedom to diversify and exploit opportunities in different segments. “Xeikon is attending Fespa to showcase the unequaled application versatility of its digital print technology, which offers profitable growth through higher levels of automation while also allowing for more sustainability,” says Dimitri Van Gaever, market segment director for graphic arts. “We look forward to meeting with printers to discuss how they can pivot their operations and accelerate into new profitable markets by implementing our innovative, highly flexible solutions.”

“Xeikon’s booth will be showcasing digital print samples and products covering the whole spectrum of printing, from marketing communications, specialty applications, and interior decoration, to labels and point-of-sale solutions. The latest iteration of Xeikon’s Wall Deco Suite will be running live to showcase digital printing on a variety of non-woven materials from substrates partners Ahlstrom and Lahnpaper. This end-to-end inline solution consists of a jumbo unwinder, web cleaning unit, and Xeikon CX500 digital press followed by a water-based varnishing module and a slitting and waste removal unit before a wallpaper rewinder,” Gaever adds.

Delivering high profitability and mass customization capabilities, Xeikon CX500 toner press prints in full rotary mode with variable repeat lengths, in true 1200dpi resolution for outstanding print quality. In addition, it offers superior sustainability performance with optimized energy consumption and eco-friendly toners that are odorless and contain no harmful substances. The toners also score high for lightfastness and are compliant with a host of industry regulations.

Visitors at Fespa will be greeted by many innovative examples of how Xeikon’s fully integrated and sustainable manufacturing technology can be used to drive more growth. In cooperation with customer Färggrossen, which is one of Sweden’s largest suppliers of paints and wallpapers, the stand in hall B2 will feature a new interactive kiosk concept that allows customers to choose, customize, visualize, and order wallpaper in-store. Meanwhile, a large feature wall will display art wallpaper with a unique 3D clay effect designed by wall deco customer belarteSTUDIO another Xeikon customer with a unique design philosophy.

“Wall decoration is one of the many segments where Xeikon technology excels. Whether it’s for wallpapers or full-scale murals with individual designs, patterns, or photos, the uptake of digital technology continues to grow due to the endless opportunities to revolutionize the status quo,” states Van Gaever. He concludes, “But of course, Xeikon’s mission goes beyond wall decoration. We want to show customers in all our markets how they can overcome challenges, expand their scope, and move towards fully automated production.”

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.
