Dedicated Indian label printer Zircon Technologies India Ltd. signed up for two Xeikon 3500 folding carton packaging presses at Labelexpo India.
Zircon Technologies India Ltd. is a solution provider that offers a wide range of label production services.
On the announcement, Sanjeev Sondhi, Zircon Technologies India Ltd., said: 'Digital is a difficult line but with the print quality and +20 years experience of Xeikon, we will be able to create a good market in India. As always, we have undertaken a big challenge. However, with Xeikon being part of the Flint Group, a long-term relationship secures quality support and service for my digital venture.'
Bent Serritslev, managing director, Asia Pacific of Xeikon added: 'Zircon is a leading name in the Indian label industry. I could not have asked for a better home for two of my presses. I’m confident that Zircon will make a big difference to how digital print will be presented in the Indian market and become a sustainable success.'
Of the Indian market, Serritslev said: 'I think the market is waking up to digital technology but it is not mainstream yet. We see a good choice of technology at the show this year and many vendors are trying different ways of getting into digital.’
The Xeikon 3500 prints at up to 19.2 m/min in 5-colors. On the fifth station the press can also apply a special security toner for anti-counterfeiting applications, and ‘one-pass’ opaque white to create ‘no-label look’ labels, or a spot color. The Xeikon 3500 runs on Xeikon’s QA-I toner, approved for indirect and direct contact with dry food.
