EFI Partners with Xeikon for Digital Label Printing

Electronics For Imaging (EFI) and Flint Group division Xeikon have signed a partnership deal for digital label printing.

As per the deal, Xeikon will provide global sales, service and support for the EFI’s Jetrion digital label and narrow web inkjet printing systems.

Xeikon will also continue the direct sales of Jetrion digital label printing systems as part its portfolio of digital dry toner and UV inkjet presses for the self-adhesive label market.

EFI CEO Guy Gecht said: "EFI Jetrion printing systems have helped to establish the market for industrial digital inkjet label production, and the numerous innovations developed for high-resolution Jetrion technology- including high-end, production-class LED imaging, superior opaque white ink and true all-in-one integrated print, varnish, cut and slit systems— have given EFI Jetrion the largest installed base of UV inkjet label presses in the world.”

EFI said that the Jetrion product line will complement Xeikon's digital label press portfolio, which includes the high-end Xeikon Cheetah Series and entry-level Xeikon 3000 Series of dry toner label presses as well as the high-end Xeikon Panther Series of UV inkjet label presses.

The digital label and narrow web printing systems are designed for shorter runs, versioning, faster turnarounds and inventory reduction.

The systems can also increase margin potential for customers on short-run label quantities of 100 or less up to runs of 50,000 or more.

Flint Group digital solutions president and CEO Benoit Chatelard said: "With over 500 digital label presses installed worldwide, we are an acknowledged leader in the self-adhesive label market.

“Xeikon has the broadest digital label printing offering in the market, including workflow, presses, embellishment modules and converting equipment, and a worldwide service and support network that is unparalleled in the label market.”
