Xeikon Toner Production

What is toner?

A toner is a powdered pigment which has an electrical charge so that it can be attracted to a drum or plate for application to your self adhesive labels. The toner is fed into our Xeikon machines where it is attracted in the right quantities or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black to create the image you wish to print. This Toner is then heated to liquify the toner and bound to the substrate.

Below is a great video from Xeikon of the processes involved in creating toner for the Xeikon Presses here at CS Labels:
