CS Labels has invested in its third Xeikon CX3 press a little over 12 months after installing its first press. As one of the fastest digital label presses on the market with printing speeds of 30 metres per minute, the Xeikon CX3 is 56% faster than any other press in the current Xeikon portfolio.

Filip Weymans, Xeikon’s director segment marketing labels and packaging, adds, “CS Labels was chosen as a pilot site for the Xeikon CX3 due its commitment to the digital print process. The fact that it now has three presses is as much a testament to its business vision as it is to the capabilities of the press.”

As one of the fastest digital label presses on the market with printing speeds of 30 metres per minute, the Xeikon CX3 is 56% faster than any other press in the current Xeikon portfolio, making it the most productive digital press in its class. Smith says the Xeikon CX3 delivers greater production flexibility and allows the company to explore new markets, “It has enabled us to expand capacity and we can also produce different types of work. Each press is dedicated to a specific product type. We maximize production by minimizing material changes on each press. The CX 3 units enable us to concentrate on the production of self-adhesive labels and transfer production of flexible stand-up pouches to other presses. This latest acquisition is part of a detailed overhaul of our current production facility to reduce cost, improve productivity and enable us develop a range of other products such as peel and reveal, sachets and flexible films. The fact that there are no changeovers in substrates or settings and no press downtime makes us faster, more productive and cost-effective.”
