Priced at circa €197,000 (£164,000 approx), the 3030 Rex runs on a 330mm web width and, according to Xeikon, offers an entry into the market for smaller firms where the labels field usually demands investments up to £1.2m despite an average investment threshold around £250,000.
The Rex programme will be further rolled out in the future to include further remanufactured Xeikon presses as affordable propositions for printers.
Director of product management Jeroen Van Bauwel said: “Xeikon has been offering digital presses into the market for more than 30 years. But often our customers’ digital business runs faster than their press and after a few years they already need to re-invest in a faster model.
“The returned press still has a long lifetime ahead so with our Rex programme we are remanufacturing these older presses by running them through our factory, implementing all recent updates and upgrading the digital front-end to the latest version of our workflow: X-800 6.0. The presses that have gone through the Rex programme are then offered again into the market at a very attractive investment cost.
“Through the REX programme, we are making our well-known digital presses accessible to converters new to digital, with limited investment budgets.”
The Xeikon 3030 Rex is a dry toner press that prints in colour plus opaque white. It is certified for food safety and prints 1,200dpi at up to 9.6m/min.
Xeikon also confirmed that any remanufactured press sold through the Rex programme will come with the same warranty as all new Xeikon presses.
