Xeikon launches new SIRIUS press
Xeikon announced a new addition to its graphic arts and commercial product portfolio: the Xeikon SX20000 digital colour press.
This is the second duplex press to come to market based on Xeikon’s SIRIUS dry toner technology. The flagship SIRIUS press is the SX30000.
According to Xeikon, it “presents an excellent value proposition for printers looking for a cost-effective machine that will give them superior image quality, perfect registration front to back and exceptional colour quality control.”
The Xeikon SX20000 is a single pass, duplex press that is able to run at a printing width of 508mm on a broad range of substrates at 1200x3600dpi at speeds of 20m/min or 1700 B2 sheets/hour.
The press is targeted at printers working in the production of high-quality books and direct mail, PoS materials, security print and general commercial print applications. Xeikon is especially eyeing the book printing and direct mail market.
“We believe the launch of the Xeikon SX20000 comes at the right moment in time. Printers looking for a roll fed machine with maximum efficiencies, a powerful workflow for full colour control and automated imposition plus all the processes necessary to compete, need look no further,” said Dimitri Van Gaever, Market Segment Director. “Many printers working in the graphic arts and commercial print markets are aware that they need to streamline their operation, reduce their TCO, increase productivity and uptime and also review their equipment. Printers looking for new revenue streams and considering a broader range of applications may be restricted because of printing equipment limitations.”
The Xeikon SX20000 is available for physical and online demonstrations at Xeikon’s Global Innovation Center in Antwerp, Belgium, and is globally commercially available as of Q1 2021.
