THE NETHERLANDS • Xeikon has expanded the inline finishing options available for its digital presses with the development of the Web Varnishing Module, a unit that can apply UV or aqueous varnish on one side of a substrate. Substrates include self-adhesive label materials, coated papers, unsupported films and coated paper board. This new unit will be commercially available from early 2015.

The company state that with the new inline module, the operator can see the results immediately and can make any corrections, if required, in order to achieve the desired effect.

The web varnishing module runs inline with the Xeikon 3000 Series of presses (at full press speeds) and the print roller can be changed to match the repeat or width of the job being printed. In addition to applying the flood or spot varnish, the unit can be upgraded with a UV dryer and/or aqueous dryer.
