Zircon Technologies India Ltd. signs for two Xeikon digital presses at Labelexpo India
Dedicated Indian label printer Zircon Technologies India Ltd. signed up for two Xeikon 3500 folding carton packaging presses at Labelexpo India.
Zircon Technologies India Ltd. is a solution provider that offers a wide range of label production services.
On the announcement, Sanjeev Sondhi, Zircon Technologies India Ltd., said: 'Digital is a difficult line but with the print quality and +20 years experience of Xeikon, we will be able to create a good market in India. As always, we have undertaken a big challenge. However, with Xeikon being part of the Flint Group, a long-term relationship secures quality support and service for my digital venture.'
Bent Serritslev, managing director, Asia Pacific of Xeikon added: 'Zircon is a leading name in the Indian label industry. I could not have asked for a better home for two of my presses. I’m confident that Zircon will make a big difference to how digital print will be presented in the Indian market and become a sustainable success.'
Of the Indian market, Serritslev said: 'I think the market is waking up to digital technology but it is not mainstream yet. We see a good choice of technology at the show this year and many vendors are trying different ways of getting into digital.’
The Xeikon 3500 prints at up to 19.2 m/min in 5-colors. On the fifth station the press can also apply a special security toner for anti-counterfeiting applications, and ‘one-pass’ opaque white to create ‘no-label look’ labels, or a spot color. The Xeikon 3500 runs on Xeikon’s QA-I toner, approved for indirect and direct contact with dry food.
