Investment designed to help company diversify into new markets
Headquartered in the city of Noida in the Delhi National Capital Region, Hora Arts Centre recently installed a Xeikon 3500 digital label press at its Western India plant in Ranjangaon near Pune. The investment was made to ensure that labels reach customers’ just-in-time production lines in the region. Hora Arts is a short-run packaging and label supplier to leading global manufacturers of white goods and electronics who have customers such as Panasonic, LG Samsung, and a large number of original equipment manufacturers. The reasoning behind the investment is not only to ensure that the company meets tight deadlines and offers a 24/7 service, but choosing the Xeikon 3500 also gives Hora Arts creative opportunities to explore new markets.

With 40 years’ experience, ARGRAF has become a reference in the manufacturing of food labels and a leader in high-end wine labels. Its achievement of this position has been based on quality and innovation. In 2017, in order to continue its forward progress, the company decided to commit to web-fed digital printing by enlarging its self-adhesive department with the addition of two digital printing presses. In 2019, ARGRAF extended its portfolio again with the acquisition of a Xeikon CX3 digital press, designed specifically for the production of self-adhesive labels.

Increased application range with creative and enhanced designs
Xeikon has developed a specific solution for printers looking to enhance and increase their range of labels. It is the unique combination of the Xeikon X-800 workflow and the PantherCure UV ink that can generate a tactile layer, responsible for a so called “haptic effect” in print. Printers can easily create designer labels with enhanced tactility, textures and a luxury feel. Xeikon’s new haptic printing process not only boosts and expands the range of possible applications for high-end label markets, it helps make significant time savings by avoiding any modifications to the prepress files. Tactile effects on labels are greatly appreciated by the beer, beverage, food, and Health & Beauty markets.
