Xeikon to Highlight the Xeikon 8000 Digital Color Press
When discussing the corporate partnership with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund for the upcoming 2009 Holiday Greetings program, the Xeikon booth will be equipped with real-time examples of the greeting cards that will be printed live on the Xeikon 8000. For this purpose, the Xeikon 8000 will be running inline with a full-fledged finishing unit capable of UV-coating, lamination, super-glossing, die-cutting, stacking and batching capabilities. "This partnership between Xeikon and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute / The Jimmy Fund has truly brought joy across our organization," said Michael V. Ring, VP of Sales & CMO of Xeikon's North American operations. "We're hoping that attendees of PRINT 09 will stop by the Xeikon booth to learn more about this amazing organization that dedicates countless hours supporting the fight against cancer in children and adults. We'll have examples of the holiday cards printed at the booth, information on where to purchase items this season, and more."
At the conference, attendees will also be able to witness the versatility and flexibility of Xeikon digital color solutions. The production configuration generating the greeting cards will also be utilized to produce Print-On-Demand applications, such as pocket folders. Furthermore, the Xeikon 8000 will produce some unique TransPromo applications at the conference. The TransPromo applications will be treated with the Xeikon Web Finishing Module, a unit that applies an invisible silicone oil/wax/water emulsion to increase scratch/scuff resistance of the printed pieces, minimize substrate curling and eliminate static for hassle-free post print processing.
In regard to the TransPromo applications, Xeikon will demonstrate its IDPS controller for processing AFP/IPDS input data streams. The Xeikon IPDS Controller enables its digital color presses to be fully integrated in a transactional/TransPromo workflow. The controller operates alongside the Xeikon X-800 Digital Front End, creating a strong value-proposition for printers - the capability to print transactional/TransPromo applications as well as all the other commercial printing applications on the same press.
