In Pictures – Installing an @Xeikon 3300 digital label printing machine

Have you ever wondered what happens when you install a digital label printing machine?  We took a few photos when we swapped out our  330 for the new Xeikon 3300 digital label printing machine in December 2011, shown below.  The whole process of decommissioning the old machine and installing and commissioning the new one took about 6 days, and went very well thanks to the expert team from Xeikon. If you haven’t seen the video of the Morris Dancing ceremony, it is available here.

This is what a Xeikon 3300 looks like when its sat in your car park (being carefully guarded!)

Stories abound in the label printing industry about digital printing machines not working and ending up in a skip.  Well thats been the case for us - our Xeikon 330 worked well for many years, but did eventually get decommisioned and recycled
