UK • Label producer Abbey Labels Ltd has chosen the Xeikon CX3 digital label press to expand its digital production services and reduce pressure on capacity. The Xeikon CX3, based on Xeikon Cheetah digital print technology and officially launched for worldwide availability at Labelexpo Europe, is said to be the fastest five-color digital label press in its class.

As for the last investment, one key attraction was the maximum speed of the press of 30 m/min (98.4 fpm). Another deciding factor was the ability to print on a variety of heat-sensitive substrates, which is made possible by Xeikon’s specifically-designed CX3 toner (QA-CH) which requires a very low fusing temperature. In addition, it meets FDA regulations for food contact and offers the ability to print opaque white toner in one pass.

Bury St Edmunds operation Abbey Labels Ltd was founded in 1996 and has today 32 employees and a turnover of £4.25m. It produces a wide range of labels from peel and reveal, scratch off, cosmetic, chemical and hazardous, industrial and office, pharmaceutical, promotional and thermal as well as food, bottle and drinks and security and tamper labels. It has British Retail Consortium (BRC) certification and ISO 14001 accreditation.
