The new press is a response to customer requests for a more competitive and high-quality solution

Xeikon, a division of Flint Group, has unveiled its new automated dry toner press aimed at high-quality label printing. 

The Xeikon LX3000, nicknamed the LION, was showcased to the public for the first time at Labelexpo Europe 2023 in Brussels between September 11th and 14th. 

The machine is built for a web width of 330mm and has been developed as a 42m/min press to answer the demand for higher productivity and more cost-effective solutions for the mass production of digital labels. 

Frank Jacobs, senior product manager at Xeikon, says: “Brand owners have grown accustomed to the advantages of digital printing, including unmatched flexibility, great quality, and rapid delivery. 

“Now, with the reliability of Xeikon’s toner technology, which comes with highly accurate variable repeat length, coupled with the LION’s powerful performance and Cruise Control for 100% perfect output, label printers can produce higher volumes of high-quality work much more cost-effectively.”


Xeikon’s Cruise Control System utilises advanced vision technology and artificial intelligence (AI) to continuously monitor and automatically adjust print production settings.

Cruise Control also checks, adjusts, and reports on five key settings to ensure precise colour registration, print station densities, and consistency with the set colour reference. If the quality does not meet customer expectations, an automatic notification is generated and printed alongside the print.

The LION is configured with Xeikon’s new ECO toners which are free from various chemicals and mineral oils, and are 100% vegan.  

Filip Weymans, vice president marketing at Xeikon, concludes: “The introduction of this advanced label press represents an important milestone in our commitment to creating application-tuned solutions that provide our customers with a competitive edge. Xeikon’s mission is to continue on this path and make digital the first choice for all label printers.”
