Xeikon, a division of Punch Graphix (Itasca, IL), announces its latest label presses offer much higher productivity with its “one-pass” opaque white toner to create the “no label, or labelless” look on transparent labels.

Transparent - or clear film - self-adhesive labels have emerged as a desirable option for companies looking to enhance their brand image and seeking an alternative to glue-attached paper labels. "Clearly, an increasing number of brands are recognizing that they can achieve a higher impact on the shelf with this 'no label or label-less look', as it provides a more natural and aesthetically pleasing appearance," says Filip Weymans, business development manager, labels and packaging, Xeikon. "Xeikon stands alone as the only digital color label press manufacturer with a 'one-pass' opaque white capability. As a result, label converters can now create this look with a much higher productivity on the Xeikon technology. We're happy to offer this added competitive advantage to the market."

All the Xeikon label presses come equipped with five color stations: four for the standard process colors (CMYK) and the fifth station for gamut expansion or spot colors, including its 'one-pass' opaque white toner. Xeikon's latest label press, the Xeikon 3500, will be available for demonstrations at Labelexpo Americas 2010 in Chicago from September 14-16, 2010.
