On show were also versatile finishing options of UV flexo, lamination, high-speed fl atbed hot foil and embossing, flatbed silkscreen printing, and semi-rotary diecutting. “Our goal at the Xeikon Café is to educate market players of the important role of label and packaging finishing when purchasing a digital machine,” said Laurent Gremmel of SMAG.
