Attendees are encouraged to connect with Flint Group, Xeikon staff, and fellow industry professionals during our daily hospitality events.

Danny Mertens, Marketing Manager for Xeikon, said: “drupa is a standout trade show in the print and packaging industry, and the Xeikon and Flint Group teams are thrilled to participate. We extend a warm invitation to all visitors to join us at our stand throughout this inspiring event. Our teams are gearing up for this excellent in-person opportunity to demonstrate our next-generation digital printing equipment.”

Xeikon’s live demonstrations will provide insights into three of its printing engines, including its LX3000 ‘The Lion’ five-colour dry toner press, developed to provide a fast, cost-effective solution for mass production of food-safe labels. The team will also showcase the TX500 for Flexible Packaging with TITON technology that combines the benefits of UV inkjet and electrophotographic toner, as well as the PX3300HD UV inkjet label press for durable label production. Finally, visitors will learn about Xeikon’s IDERA digital engines for corrugated printing via an inspiring digital presentation. 

Deanna Klemesrud, Global Director of Brand and Communications added:  “This show is an excellent opportunity for Flint Group to showcase our latest innovations and to highlight our commitment to pushing the boundaries of excellence in the industry. From our dual-curing EkoCure® ink series, which eases the transition from traditional UV to UV LED curing for narrow web printers, to our innovative blanket technology, attendees can see first-hand how we are driving innovation in print technology. Moreover, visitors can learn how our solutions can support printers in achieving high-performance printing while minimising their environmental impact."

Narrow Web printers will learn about the Evolution De-inking Primer and Caustic-Resistant Overprint Varnish (OPV) designed to enhance sustainability in packaging and to improve material yield during the recycling process. EkoCure® ANCORA, a food-contact material (FCM) certified ink technology with dual curing capabilities, will also be highlighted at the exhibition. Furthermore, for digital label printing, the company presents a range of DigiCoat varnishes to complement various digital printing techniques.

Flexible packaging printers can explore the innovative range of ONECode solvent-based inks and varnishes. The Flint Group team is eager to discuss the company’s range of universal bases, which deliver maximised flexibility whereby printers can dispense inks via one set of bases, along with a technology package specified to meet the needs of individual print jobs.

Paper & Board printers will learn about the company’s new TerraCode Bio water-based extender and coating technology designed to support printers’ sustainability objectives.

For Offset Folding Carton converters, Flint Group presents the new Novasens® P670 Prime, a high-performance, low odour, low migration sheetfed ink series that offers outstanding colour strength and vibrancy across multiple substrates. Additionally, visitors can learn more about soon-to-be-launched dayGraphica® printing blankets.

Mr Mertens concludes:  “The Flint Group & Xeikon booth is the perfect place to explore our technologies and learn about the future of printing. We’re looking forward to seeing visitors at drupa and encourage them to get in touch now to book a meeting.”
