Germany-based label printing provider InForm Etiketten has invested in Xeikon’s flagship product for toner-based digital print, Xeikon CX3.

The five-colour digital label press was selected based on sustainable and environmental factors.

The label printer will improve the company’s production capacity and flexibility. It can reach a speed of 30m/min.

InForm Etiketten chief operating officer Dr Benjamin Rüdt von Collenberg said: “Digital print is in a league of its own, enabling runs as short as a single unit, as well as serial codes, numbering, the addition of addresses and low set-up costs. Today, it also allows high gradients, provided you have a state-of-the-art toner printer.”

InForm Etiketten is already using a Xeikon 3300 system for the prime and heat transfer label applications.

Xeikon CX3 offers higher quality and a printed image that is closer to offset, compared to an inkjet-based solution.

Dry toner enables the system to be applied to a broad range of materials, eliminating the need for pre-treated substrates used in inkjet printing.

The toner is also suitable for the food industry label printing.

Founded in 1991, InForm Etiketten specialises in sticky and self-adhesive labels for the food and chemical industries, as well as for wines and spirits.

Dr Collenberg added: “Labels for wines and luxury spirits are design objects, required to carry emotions through high-quality finishing. We have the right attitude and the right technology, particularly with digital print.”
