Uruguay packaging firm Imprimex has invested in a new Xeikon 3050 digital colour press in a move to expand its printing capacity.
With this investment, the company will be able to offer its label and folding carton clients the advantages of variable data printing, in short print runs and with quality standards.
The entry-level press of the Xeikon 3000 Series, the Xeikon 3050 has been designed for label and packaging converters that require a greater capacity in the production of labels, folding cartons and promotional materials, with the functionality offered by digital printing technology.
This can further be upgraded to one of the higher speed models of the Xeikon 3000 Series.
Imprimex CEO Horacio Rey Lottermoser said: "The new Xeikon 3050 digital press will support our new sales channel in the area of short-run folding boxes, for products with high-quality and safety demands such as those required by the pharmaceutical industry.
"Our strategy is to provide an answer to the international market trends. We want our clients to be able to count on a supplier that is capable of creating products like the ones developed in the most competitive markets worldwide. In Xeikon, we found a strategic partner that will help us to produce new and innovative products on the Xeikon 3050 press".
Selected for its print width of 516mm/20, Xeikon 3050 can adapt to a diverse range of applications in the packaging market.
Imprimex offers folding boxes in cardboard and micro-corrugated, displays, bags and point of sale materials.
The company also has an executive division specialising in the production of self-adhesive labels in rolls, sheets, paper, OPP and PVC, certified with the ISO 9001: 2008 norm.
