Xeikon is making waves in the label printing arena with its latest innovation, the high-performance and fully automated Xeikon LX3000, affectionately dubbed "The LION." This cutting-edge dry toner press is specifically designed for high-volume label printing without compromising on quality.

Picture this: a sleek machine with a web width of 330mm, the Xeikon LION LX3000 is a game-changer, boasting a five-color dry toner press that meets the demands for increased productivity and cost-effective solutions in mass label production. Step into the world of The LION at trade shows, where you can witness its impressive 42 m/min operation – a whopping 40% speed boost from Xeikon's previous capabilities of 30 m/min. What's more, its automation ensures precise quality control without the need for manual intervention, maintaining the highest standards throughout the production process.
At the heart of the Xeikon LX3000 is the innovative Cruise Control System, a marvel of advanced vision technology and artificial intelligence. This system continually monitors and automatically adjusts key print production settings to guarantee precise color registration, print station densities, and consistency with the set color reference. The Cruise Control System doesn't just stop there; it generates automatic notifications if the quality falls short of expectations, guiding the next steps in the manufacturing process. Moreover, it provides valuable quantitative data for monitoring Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), helping printers optimize their production workflows.
Xeikon's Cruise Control System isn't just a fancy feature – it's a game-changer that significantly enhances press efficiency and productivity. By reducing waste and allowing operators to focus on higher-level tasks, this system takes digital label printing to a whole new level. According to Xeikon, "Brand owners have grown accustomed to the advantages of digital printing, including unmatched flexibility, great quality, and rapid delivery. Now, with the reliability of Xeikon’s toner technology, coupled with the LION’s powerful performance and Cruise Control for 100% perfect output, label printers can produce higher volumes of high-quality work much more cost-effectively."
The LION LX3000 is not just a pretty face; it's an evolution of Xeikon’s market-leading toner technology. This powerhouse can print on a diverse range of self-adhesive substrates without priming, using the most food-safe toners available. Boasting a resolution of 1200 dpi, the print quality is nothing short of impressive.
Xeikon is also taking a bold step towards sustainability with the LION. Configured with Xeikon’s new ECO toners, formulated with over 60% high-grade recycled PET, this machine is environmentally conscious. These ECO toners are not only free from fluorine, Bisphenol A (BPA), TPO, and mineral oils but are also 100% vegan. Addressing concerns about food safety, these toners comply with regulations and showcase Xeikon's commitment to health and animal welfare.
This innovation solidifies Xeikon's dedication to digitizing print manufacturing, always adapting to the dynamic demands of the market and the varied needs of its customers. By ramping up the speed of its toner technology, Xeikon is not just keeping up with the times but is also pushing the breakeven point between digital and conventional printing. This means customers can seize profitable opportunities in this fiercely competitive market. The LION LX3000 is not just a printer; it's a game-changer in the world of label printing.
