Xeikon opened a second Technology Centre in the Asia Pacific region. The new centre is located in Tokyo and signifies continued growth and expansion for Xeikon in the region. The grand opening included a Xeikon Café featuring a number of educational partner presentations.
Wim Maes, Xeikon’s CEO said, ‘We are seeing continued and unprecedented growth in the Asia Pacific region, and we are especially pleased to be able to open this important Technology Centre in Japan. This state-of-the-art facility will play an important role in spurring growth for Xeikon in Japan, and in helping our Japanese customers make the most of their investments in Xeikon. The Centre will focus on testing, benchmarking and product demonstrations that the Japanese printing and packaging community has been requesting and will be an important venue for face-to-face meetings, which are so important in Japanese culture. We are very proud of our Japanese team, who conducted such a successful grand opening event.’
The new Technology Centre features Xeikon technology for the production of labels and packaging applications as well as for document and commercial printing applications, including the 3500 digital press, designed for folding carton printing. Visitors will also be able to learn about the brand-new Xeikon CX3 (that will be launched at Labelexpo Europe) with Cheetah technology for high quality label printing; and the Xeikon 9800 for document printing solutions.
