Xeikon has introduced the CX50, an end-to-end solution for wall decoration production which the company describes as offering ‘unlimited creative freedom across a wide range of substrates.’

Designed to help meet consumer demand for personalised home interiors, the CX50 is part of Xeikon’s Wall Deco Suite, an all-in-one streamlined solution which includes inline finishing. 

‘What we have put together is a complete automated Wall Deco factory,’ said Dimitri Van Gaever, market segment director for graphic arts. ‘The Xeikon CX50 digital press fits perfectly into our portfolio for wallcovering applications, midway between the Xeikon 3050 REX entry level option and our high-end Xeikon CX500 digital press.

‘For higher speeds the Xeikon CX50 can be upgraded from 20 to 30m/min. With Xeikon’s dry toner technology and advanced colour management capability with new generation interfaces and cloud connection, the Xeikon CX50 simplex digital press is designed to offer maximum OEE and TCO.’

The CX50 is driven by Xeikon’s X-800 workflow for high levels of automation. The workflow, ubiquitous across all Xeikon dry toner solutions, features a ‘poster layout’ function for murals and wallcoverings to ensure spot-on registration for ‘seamless’ installation.

The press also provides what Xeikon calls ‘superior colour consistency’ and an extended colour gamut. The company’s dry toner is available in CMYK, red, blue, green, orange and magenta, with additional colours, including one-pass opaque white and custom shades available on request.

Finally the inline finishing equipment, specifically designed to work within Xeikon’s Wall Deco Production Suite, includes inline water-based varnishing, slitting, waste removal and coreless rewinding.

‘Part of Xeikon’s ongoing value proposition is to offer the market choices to help customers drive business growth,’ Mr Van Gaever concluded. ‘We believe a successful and cost-effective investment in a digital production solution works best when it is based on expected and realistic print volumes.

‘The Xeikon CX50 press is ideal for those working in wall decoration production with flexible orders and shorter runs. With its capability to upgrade to higher speeds, an investment in this press ensures and secures future business growth.’
