Xeikon to launch new labelling press at IPEX?

A well placed source yesterday whispered in my ear that Xeikon are going to launch something special at IPEX next month.  IPEX, second only to DRUPA on the world stage for print innovation launches (both with an offset 4 year cycle) is being held down the road from us in Birmingham, UK.

The new YouTube video (above) is a humorous take on a recent press event, but makes the point well – something new is about to come out of Belgium.

I cannt find out what this is (yet), but as well as the new toners, look out for something new and exciting from Xeikon at IPEX.  My vote?  Speed. lots of it.   Lets call it the Xeikon 3600 and think 40 m/min.

If you wish to speculate, then join in the fun by adding a comment to this post.

Watch this space.

  • one quick feedback from someone else “in the know” to this post thinks its wider, rather than quicker, and will overtake the HPws6000 for productivity – now that will be very expensive….
