Willenhall, West Midlands, 19th February 2015 – CS Labels today announced their foray into the digital heat transfer market. The printer known mainly as being a European leader in digital labels, is expanding their reach into new markets as part of their aggressive growth plans.

The digital heat transfer process works in harmony with CS Labels existing Xeikon digital presses. It integrates the digital printing of high quality graphics on to a clear film carrier with a unique adhesive applied. The image is then transferred to a surface or product such as glass, plastic, aluminium, pens and pencils or ceramics, using a separate applicator machine. This offers a ‘no label look’ which is consistent and of an extremely high quality.

CS Labels are the using Xeikon technology to print at a speedy 14 metres a minute; furthermore they can also offer a maximum imaging width of 322mm. The process does not use printing plates and is extremely fast and simple. All of the advantages of digital print can be enjoyed, such as short lead times, easy and quick personalisation (effectively each heat transfer can be unique when you use digital printing) and the ability to process very small runs if required.

The digital transfers will incorporate full CMYK and a fifth white with photo realistic images, they can also provide a full wraparound image on a product. The technology is quite simple state of the art in the digital transfer sector. They are ideal for cosmetics, pens, point of sale items, ice buckets, sports bottles, drinks bottles and lipstick tubes and the process means they are ideal for multi varieties. Marketers can easily offer limited editions, personalised products or trial runs of products, for example in the brewing, cosmetics, promotional, point of sale and alcoholic spirits markets.

The news comes ahead of a major announcement by the company on 24th February next week, one day before they exhibit at a major Packaging show; CS Labels will be on stand K7 at the Label & Print Show (co-located with the Packaging Innovations Show and Em Pack) taking place at the Birmingham NEC, UK, on 25/26 February 2015).
