According to Xeikon, the solutions will be available globally including to the Asia Pacific market. The services will be launched first to North America.

Xeikon (Business Services) XBS

In real time, Xeikon Business Services can translate data in the cloud from machine to machine and provide all the necessary and in-depth information on a dashboard that is available on any smartphone or device.

With Xeikon XBS, printers and converters can check the performance of any press or piece of equipment at any time 24/7. They can check on efficiencies, costs and compare results.

Xeikon (Performance Services) XPS

Xeikon Performance Services will be included as a standard for the first 6 months with all press investments. This is intended to help printers and converters identify which aspects of production need their attention.

This software will highlight and visualise any key feature that need adjusting, including maintenance issues, training schedules or applications check. This service will be offered to support customers in their digital start-up phase.

It will also provide Xeikon with the information needed to help their customers become operational faster when embarking on their digital journey.

Xeikon (Color Services) XCS

Xeikon’s XCS Pro 2.0 is a cloud-connected breakthrough in colour management. It is a unique automated toolbox for the highest quality printed products. Extra capabilities include full automation for ‘on-the-fly’ profiling, colour profile monitoring and adjusting.

It is now possible on a Xeikon press to automatically recalibrate the colour profile when an issue arises. The operator is alerted automatically, and the problem is automatically escalated to the production manager if it persists.

Importantly, XCS 2.0 can now be used for making colour profiles on a variety of different platforms such as a flexo press, offset press, screen printing with digital or any competitors press. This extends what can currently be achieved and expands the variety of applications and materials that can be worked with.

The Xeikon XCS 2.0 also has the advantage of simplifying the process for the printer and manufacturer as it covers all their needs for high-end colour management.

“With our latest innovations, printers and converters will be able to address the current and future needs of print buyers and brand owners. Having clear insight into their production environments means they can monitor progress and make quick and flexible decisions on the fly. This is why digitization can be a game changer,” said Filip Weymans, Vice President of Marketing.

“When we install the first digital press at a company's site, we are with that company every step of their growth journey. They quickly realise the productivity, growth and profit benefits of implementing a fully automated digital print manufacturing process. Everyone knows that making changes in a company’s strategy and operations can be difficult. Xeikon stands as the go-to advisor for printers and converters looking to the future for their growth and sustainable profitability,” Weymans concluded.
