Xeikon Launches New Digital Color Printing Presses
Xeikon launched two new digital color printing presses: the Xeikon 4000 and the Xeikon 5000plus. With this, Xeikon completes its product family, following the launch of the Xeikon 6000 in September 2006.
The new Xeikon 4000 system offers higher quality product specifications and allows printing on a wide array of substrates and formats of 50 cm wide. It boasts Xeikon’s unique One-Pass-Duplex technology, which minimizes total run time and produces prints in a single pass. The Xeikon 4000 incorporates the X-800 DFE (Digital Front End) that combines extensive pre-press functionalities including a fast RIP with impressive variable data processing and collation capabilities. In addition, the X-800 serves as an extra quality assurance tool. The Xeikon 4000 uses the unique Xeikon FA (form adapted) toner delivering outstanding print quality.
Siegfried Trinker, chief sales and marketing officer adds, “More and more businesses want to step into digital printing, and they are right. The Xeikon 4000 is targeted exactly at those customers that are looking for a high class easy access opportunity to digital printing. The Xeikon 4000 is a top quality system and it is very affordable.”
The Xeikon 5000 has been improved with numerous developments to make the Xeikon 5000plus continue to set the trend. This enhanced digital press incorporates Xeikon’s One-Pass-Duplex technology and DFE for high levels of productivity and quality. It also includes the Xeikon FA toner range for vibrant colors. The Xeikon 5000plus comes standard with a variable web input module, offering customers a unique format and substrate flexibility. The Xeikon 5000plus can also be upgraded at the customer site to a Xeikon 6000.
Launched in September 2006, the Xeikon 6000 is a fully featured digital press offering speeds of 160 pages per minute and a high level of productivity and reliability. The Xeikon 6000 duty cycle can reach up to 5 million equivalent A4/ month in a 7 day per week operation. The Xeikon 6000 features the FA toner, DFE, and variable web input module as standard.
