Xeikon is rolling out a series of Xeikon Café events across Europe in the coming months, with the final meeting taking place at the CS Labels Factory in the UK.



Previously, Xeikon has hosted annual user events at its manufacturing centre in Lier, Belgium, but this year they are taking the new Xeikon Café concept to Denmark, France and the UK. 


The notion of these seminars is described by the press manufacturer as "simple but effective: to provide an informal knowledge exchange platform covering the different aspects of digitalising print production, while cutting through the information overload".

CS Labels Factory Tour And The Latest Industry Developments


The UK event, taking place on 10th and 11th June, involves a digital label factory tour of Midacre-based CS Labels, which claims to be Europe’s largest reel-to-reel Xeikon house. The label printer uses three Xeikon presses, the latest of which, the Xeikon 3500 digital press, arrived in September 2012.



The digital labels printing company uses Xeikon’s colour control technology and runs multiple label designs on one web using Xeikon presses, to utilise the flexibility of the machines and cut down production time. CS Labels managing director Simon Smith said that the firm’s employment of these capabilities made it a suitable choice for Xeikon to introduce users and potential customers to their technology. 


Digital Label Printing Innovations And Latest Technologies


"We will be talking about how we moved into digital label printing ahs showing how we use the Xeikon presses and latest technologies at the factory tour. The day is beneficial in terms of talking about the latest developments with technology, and is a good opportunity for Xeikon users to share best practices and talk about business," Smith said.


Management information company Hybrid, paper manufacturer Herma and Label Traxx, a US software developer for the narrow web flexo and digital label printing market, will also be attending and giving presentations about their offerings over the two-day event.

Previous events at Xeikon’s Belgium office have attracted up to 70 businesses. Cafés have already taken place in Bulgaria and Belgium, and Xeikon users and prospective customers are invited to the Cafés scheduled for May in Denmark and France.
