More flexibility during production and concerns for environment and climate were key factors in German label printer's choice of Xeikon digital printing system
For label printer InForm Etiketten, sustainability and protecting the environment have always been a top priority – well before the ‘Fridays for Future’ movement began. It was also a key factor in the decision-making process when choosing a new printing technology. The label printer, based in Ansbach, Germany, was looking for a technology that would allow them to increase their production capacity and flexibility, as well as provide a sustainable and environmentally responsible approach to production. That is why in 2019, InForm Etiketten invested in a CX3, Xeikon’s flagship product for toner-based digital print.
