On April 10, 2020, Xeikon announced the launch of its Café TV tool to respect the need for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. This online tool is focused on delivering best practices to the graphic arts, commercial printing, and label & packaging sectors while also introducing Xeikon’s latest products, technologies, and applications. On April 23, Xeikon put its Café TV tool to special use, hosting the online launch of its new SX30000 roll-fed toner-based color production printer.

This digital press features Xeikon’s new SIRIUS technology, which focuses on toner development, imaging technology, fusing technology, and media conditioning to deliver over 400 design changes and developments in relation to previous generations. All of the device’s core components have been redesigned and enhanced to deliver superior quality, performance, and sustainability, all while accommodating a wide range of applications.

Producing speeds of 98 feet per minute (404 A4 ppm) the SX 30000 is 50% faster than any of its predecessors. This five-color printer is also capable of handling a wide variety of substrates, including synthetic media types, from 40 to 350 gsm. This device maintains its increased productivity across various substrate weights. For example, the speed of the printer is only reduced by 13% when running offset coated papers.

The SX30000 also accommodates a wide variety of technical and specialty toners, including those that are required for security applications. By producing its own toner at its headquarters in an eco-friendly way (e.g., no harmful substrates or drying processes, green energy), Xeikon has also enhanced its commitment to the environment.

The SX30000 features Xeikon’s new EkoFuse technology as well as a cooling drum that helps enhance quality and productivity. It should also be noted that the device includes inline cameras to better manage color quality and consistency.

According to Xeikon, the SX30000 is printer is faster than any other B2-sized digital printer on the market, As such, it is designed to remain competitively productive across a wide range of cut-sheet and roll-fed applications. At the same time, however, it remains to be seen how Xeikon will position its newest printer in terms of capital investment and running costs. The device is expected to become commercially available in June 2020, so more information will likely be available at that time. Keypoint Intelligence will provide regular updates on the SX30000 as additional details come in.
