Xeikon IDERA has been designed specifically for corrugated packaging converters. Xeikon states that the press will deliver higher print quality than flexography and enable printing of both short and long runs with all the benefits of a digital print-on-demand solution, including reduced waste. One of the cornerstones of the IDERA platform is a post-print, single-pass printing press using certified food-safe, water-based inks on coated and uncoated corrugated sheets up to 63 inches wide and 110 inches long. In developing IDERA, Xeikon utilized its long established in-house digital knowledge combined with the experience and manufacturing footprint of its parent company Flint Group, the number one supplier of inks for corrugated packaging. An additional differentiator is Xeikon’s powerful X-800 front end that drives the press with a true digital workflow capability and enables integration with third-party wide web machines and MIS.
