Xeikon – First US installation of Cheetah press

The Xeikon Cheetah digital colour label press

USA • Xeikon announced the first North American installation of the Cheetah full-colour digital label printing press at Accu-Label, Inc. making it the third pilot site worldwide. They have added the new press to complement its existing production platform, which includes a Xeikon 3500 that was installed last year, as well as flexographic printing solutions.

Located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Accu-Label is a family-centered business founded 28 years ago. Until its first Xeikon acquisition last year, the business had been 100% flexo. David Manning, Accu-Label’s founder, comments that one of the biggest benefits of digital is the greater level of flexibility it offers for design and prototyping. “We have customers who want to see many versions of their labels before they go into production. Digital label production enables clients to be more creative with their ideas and gives us the opportunity to help them bring that creativity to market faster.”
