Altrif Label: Diversifying and boosting production

THE NETHERLANDS. The digital label printer reports the installation of another Xeikon 3500 in just two years – their first Xeikon 3500 was installed in 2011.

Since earlyJuly, the company has been testing Xeikon’s ICE toner, designed to print on heat-sensitive substrates such as PE. The convincing results of the new toner and the capabilities of the Xeikon 3500 answered Altrif Label’s current needs for extra production capacity perfectly.

The existing advantages of increased productivity and cost efficiency are now extended with the capability to print on a broad range of heat-sensitive substrates like PE and direct thermal labels.

The Xeikon 3500 is a five-colour digital label press that prints on substrate widths of up to 516 mm (20.3”) wide, and is ideal for oversized labels. It is a full rotary roll fed press with a maximum printing speed of 19,2 m/min (63 fpm). The printing speed is independent of the number of colours printed.
