Spanish converter InterPrint has digitalised 10% of its production with its investment in a Xeikon CX3
Spain’s InterPrint has installed a Xeikon CX3 dry toner digital label press, which is already accounting for 10% of its production.
Specialised in labels with over 1200 customers in its portfolio, InterPrint produces adhesive and non-adhesive labels on paper, cardboard, PVC, polyester, heat-transfer labels, hot foil stamped labels, multilayer labels, and security labels. It also produces folded boxes and promotional printed material for various markets such as pharmaceutical labs, large food and drink retailers, and logistics providers.
InterPrint relies on an extensive production platform to produce printed products, including flexo and screen printing, stamping and barcode printing. Digital has now been integrated through the Xeikon CX3 dry toner digital label press. The company has already digitalised 10% of its production as a result of this investment.
InterPrint CEO Tomás Iglesias commented, ‘We chose this press for its dry toner technology, which enables us to work with low levels of stock and boost our productivity as pre-treatment of substrates is not needed.
‘This press enables us to use different substrates of varying thickness, including heat sensitive substrates, to produce transparent and white labels with high levels of opacity. It must also be pointed out that the inks used for dry toner are safe for use with food, since some projects require this compliance, and offer high quality printing, comparable to offset.’
Mr Iglesias added, ‘The ability to offer variable data printing, shorter preparation and change times for short run jobs, since regular runs are under 500m, plus the use of safe dry toner and the availability of the press to work 24 hours a day, are solid reasons why we chose to go with this technology.’
He concluded, ‘From the get-go, we put our trust in the press and in our proximity with the manufacturer. Now we see that with the installation of the Xeikon XC3, we have managed to reach new customers to offer them labels with added value and customised runs at affordable costs.’
