Brentwood-based Label Solutions has installed a Xeikon CX3 label press. A long time user of both digital and flexographic technology, the new press will sit alongside the company’s existing Xeikon 3300. 

Commenting on this latest addition,managing director Les Burden said, ‘Following on from our proven success with the Xeikon 3300 we have chosen the Xeikon CX3 to expand further into the digital market place. The additional capacity and increased speed will further enhance our reputation for fast turnaround and high quality, essential in today’s growing market.’

The installation is part of a company-wide investment programme of over £1 million. Malcolm Bunn, sales director, added, ‘Our label business has grown in line with our high expectations. We were very much reaching capacity on our existing Xeikon. We urgently needed the extra manufacturing capability that this new machine will give us, but on top of that the Xeikon CX3 is 30% faster than our other press, meaning that we can look to dramatically reduce lead times and still have capacity for new work. This investment in both equipment and people will help us to target and focus on new markets and new industries for our business.’
