Digital colour printing technology specialist Xeikon has opened a new technology centre in Tokyo, Japan, which is the second of its type in the Asia-Pacific region.
The new facility employs Xeikon technology to produce labels and packaging applications, as well as for document and commercial printing applications, including the 3500 digital press, designed for folding carton printing.
This will also focus on testing, benchmarking and product demonstrations that the Japanese printing and packaging industry has been requesting, the company said.
Xeikon CEO Wim Maes said: "This state-of-the-art facility will play an important role in spurring growth for Xeikon in Japan, and in helping our Japanese customers make the most of their investments in Xeikon."
The facility will also allow visitors to learn more about the new Xeikon CX3 with Cheetah technology for quality label printing, and the Xeikon 9800 for document printing solutions, as well as have hands-on interaction with Xeikon's solution suites developed in collaboration with its global network of Aura partners.
Xeikon Asia-Pacific managing director Bent Serritslev said: "This centre is an important demonstration of Xeikon's dedication to helping its customers stay ahead of developing trends with a broad portfolio of products and services in document and commercial printing, as well as labels and packaging.
"The Tokyo technology centre will allow us to further improve our service to new and existing customers in Japan."
Xeikon designs, develops and delivers web-fed digital colour presses for document printing, labels and packaging applications, as well as commercial printing.These machines employ LED-array-based dry toner electrophotography, open workflow software and application-specific toners.
