The Xeikon CX30 and Xeikon CX50 fit perfectly in the Xeikon portfolio between the Xeikon 3030 REX and Xeikon 3050 REX entry-level presses and the higher-end Xeikon CX300 and Xeikon CX500. Xeikon has designed and developed the two new presses to suit any label printer operating on ‘middle capacity’, that is: 20,000-40,000sqm or 30,000-55,000 MSI in all end-use segments but excelling in the pharmaceutical, food, and wine & spirit label sectors. The new machines are available for physical and online demonstrations at Xeikon’s Global Innovation Center in Antwerp, Belgium, and globally commercially available as of Q1 2021.
Filip Weymans, VP Marketing at Xeikon, says, “Part of the Xeikon strategy going forward is to make sure every label printer and converter has the maximum choice to purchase a Xeikon press which can help them drive business growth. A successful and cost-effective investment in a digital production solution works best when it is based on expected, realistic print volumes. Xeikon’s CHEETAH 2.0 series offers competitive running costs, and printers have the opportunity to successfully expand the capabilities of their press (by upgrading either in speed or width, or both). The Xeikon CX30 and Xeikon CX50 are an appropriate choice for printers and converters looking at digital for the first time with future plans to expand and grow their operation – also for online label printers who are seeing their business explode.”
Both the Xeikon CX30 and Xeikon CX50 are ‘middle capacity’ presses that can be upgraded on site:
- For higher speeds, both the Xeikon CX30 and Xeikon CX50 can be upgraded from 20mpm (65ft/min) to 30mpm (98ft/min) with the Xeikon CX300 or Xeikon CX500
- For greater width, the Xeikon CX30 (330mm or 13”) can be upgraded to the Xeikon CX50 (520mm or 20.47”) or the Xeikon CX500
