Xeikon’s latest updates on digital label production

An introduction to Xeikon CX300

Trevor Crowley, Sales general manager for the ANZ region, Xeikon

Xeikon is set to broadcast live on Xeikon Café TV to Australia and New Zealand. The company is looking forward to informing its global audience in the printing industry via its XCTV platform, an online derivative of the renowned Xeikon Café series. The sessions are live, interactive, and accessible on any device. This is a dedicated session for Australia and New Zealand and will take place on Tuesday 16 June 2020, 4:30 PM Sydney Time (8:30 CET). There will be a focus on specific subjects for the label community.

Trevor Crowley, Sales general manager for the ANZ region adds, “We all know Drupa is postponed to 2021 but that doesn’t mean printers should lack knowledge on what is happening in the label industry and the new novelties. Xeikon is committed to keeping the printing industry up to date on its latest news and innovations. We believe it is vital that printers and converters have all the information they need right now to continue to make decisions and maintain and drive their businesses forward.”

Live broadcast of new Xeikon CX300

During the broadcast, Crowley together with his colleagues from Belgium, will explain the latest Xeikon views and offer advice on digital label production. There will also be video footage of the new Xeikon CX300 in action and the team will explain its novelties, benefits, and value for Australian label converters. This is the next best thing to a live event and there will be ample opportunity for questions and interaction with the speakers.

Label printers, industry experts, and trade journalists who are interested in staying up-to-date on label production with digital presses and the latest on both dry toner and inkjet technology. Live presentations will be made by Trevor Crowley and Filip Weymans, vice president, Marketing, Xeikon based in Antwerp, Belgium

In addition to broadcasts like the Australia/NZ edition explained above, XCTV will become a permanent communication tool offering a range of time and travel saving options for Xeikon’s current and prospective customers. For example, individualized streaming video demonstrations originating in Xeikon’s Innovation Centres can be arranged as needed, incorporating remote video from multiple geographies. A brief video describing the tool’s capabilities can be viewed here.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
