Xeikon has announced the launch of its REX program supporting printers looking for entry-level, affordable digital production solutions to fulfill their customers’ demands for shorter runs, just-in-time production and customisation. The investment threshold for professional digital printing solutions can be an issue for smaller companies wanting to step into this new market. The REX program will offer a range of remanufactured Xeikon presses providing an attractive and affordable option for printers and converters looking to expand their business with digital applications.
Jeroen Van Bauwel, director of product management states, ”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 program 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 program are then offered again into the market at a very attractive investment cost. Through the REX program, we are making our well-known digital presses accessible to converters new to digital, with limited investment budgets. REX stands for Remanufactured, Ecological: Xeikon quality.
