Xeikon to Showcase Cutting-Edge Innovations at drupa 2024

Xeikon, a subsidiary of Flint Group, has confirmed its participation at drupa 2024, the world’s largest trade fair for the printing and packaging industry. This highly anticipated event will take place at the Düsseldorf trade fair grounds, featuring 1,400 exhibitors from 50 nations across all 18 halls.

At drupa 2024, Xeikon will showcase its latest innovations and cutting-edge solutions, reaffirming its commitment to providing state-of-the-art technology that meets the evolving needs of the printing and packaging industry. Filip Weymans, VP of Marketing at Xeikon, highlighted the industry's rapid shift towards digitization in response to emerging trends demanding greater agility, sustainability, and efficiency.

“Let’s be honest about it, much like many other industries, the print industry has weathered a turbulent period that has expedited the push towards digitization. This shift is in response to emerging trends that demand greater agility, a commitment to sustainable solutions, and heightened efficiency," said Weymans.

Current investments in printing equipment are now driven by the need for evidence-based, sustainable solutions. Printers and converters seek technologies that not only meet technical specifications but also contribute to future-proof investments. Xeikon has made significant progress in this area, introducing innovations such as de-inkable print technologies, environmentally conscious LED inks, and toner formulations with over 60% recycled content.

At drupa, Xeikon will present unique solutions across four key markets:

  • Flexible Packaging: The Xeikon TITON solution ensures food safety when printing on paper-based flexible packaging, meeting stringent requirements for temperature, chemical, and mechanical resistance.
  • Corrugated Packaging: Xeikon’s IDERA technology offers a food-safe solution for post-print corrugated environments.
  • Graphic Arts: The Xeikon SIRIUS technology provides a cost-effective solution for medium-run commercial print.
  • Label Printing: Xeikon’s Panther (UV Inkjet) and LION (Dry Toner) technologies deliver sustainable benefits with exceptional speed and quality, offering complementary processes.

Sabine Geldermann, Director of drupa and Portfolio Print Technologies at Messe Düsseldorf, expressed pride in Xeikon's participation, stating, “We are proud to have Xeikon on board, a pioneer in digital printing that has been present at drupa since its inception. Their participation reaffirms the significance of drupa as a platform and milestone event for the printing industry.”

Filip Weymans added, “drupa has consistently served as the pulse of our industry, providing an ideal platform for industry players to embrace current and future innovations. With eight years having passed since the last edition, ground-breaking innovations have come to light and can now leverage the drupa platform. This event will showcase the incredible journey Xeikon has undertaken, expanding its offerings into diverse new markets.”
