Access Labels has invested in a new digital colour press from Xeikon in a bid to provide quality, low volume labels for companies in the Atlantic region of Canada.

Digital printing technology firm Xeikon delivered its 3030 digital colour press, part of the Xeikon 3000 series, to Access Labels.

Xeikon 3030, a narrow web entry-level press, enables the digital production of labels. The press can also be used in the production of promotional and transfer applications, as well as prime label applications.

"To keep pace with the needs of this loyal customer base, and to help us grow into new markets, we needed to move into digital."

With its full rotary printing ability, the press provides high level of productivity. It offers 1200 x 3600 dpi imaging resolution with a media width of up to 13in, and can handle different types of substrates without pre-treatment or priming, Xeikon said.

Access Labels business development head Robert Sams said: "From our location in Atlantic Canada, we provide a robust product line and the high level of our service customers have come to expect.
