Limo Labels in Denmark gears up production capabilities with a high capacity Xeikon CX3 digital label press
Limo Labels has invested in a Xeikon CX3 digital label press. The agreement was completed at Labelexpo 2019. The privately owned company and leading manufacturer of labels in Scandinavia has made the investment to expand its digital capabilities and meet demand for growing volumes. The Xeikon CX3 will complement over 25 production lines in action at Limo Labels’ main plant in Stevnstrup in Denmark. These include a Xeikon 3300 digital Dry Toner press and 2 Xeikon Jetrion Inkjet presses. The company will take delivery of the new press in October 2019.
Henrik Ehlers, Sales Manager for Key Accounts at Limo Labels says: “Our company continues to develop and grow. We have made this investment to stay ahead and expand our market share. We have had very good cooperation with Xeikon for some years and we see them as part of our evolution. Our digital journey started with Xeikon and we continue this with the installation of the Xeikon CX3 machine. This model offers us very high speeds, dry toner technology and the opportunity to achieve a wider range of brand colours with the fifth unit using orange. This option extends the colour gamut and gives us the widest possible choices. At Limo Labels, we make customized solutions for our customers to optimize the complete value chain and to do that we bring in the Xeikon technologies. Today, we can see the break-even point between Flexo and Digital moving and we are able to do more jobs using our digital machines. We have invested in the Xeikon CX3 to increase our capacity.” The Xeikon CX3 digital label press offers a top speed of 30m/min with substrate widths up to 330mm, full rotary printing at 1200dpi plus variable dot density and FDA compliance for food contact.
