Digital print manufacturer Xeikon will head to Heimtextil to showcase wall paper designs produced using its wall decoration production suite.
The show runs Frankfurt from January 10-13. Xeikon will demonstrate live printing of wall coverings and its display will feature printed patterns and murals projected using new video mapping techniques, offering visitors what the company calls a virtual reality-like experience.
Filip Weymans, vice president of marketing at Xeikon, says, “We have more than 15 years’ experience supporting clients producing innovative wallpaper offerings and are the only supplier that offers a complete tailored solution for this market.
“At Heimtextil, we want to demonstrate the amazing results digital printing can achieve and inspire more designers to embrace the creative freedom and production flexibility digital print enables. Our booth will partly be a black box onto which we will use video mapping technology to show the designs our technology is producing during the show. We will be presenting all the different capabilities as realistically as possible so architects and designers can quickly grasp how incorporating digital printing into the mix can revolutionize their practices.
“Our goal is to inspire them with the brand-new possibilities digital printing of wall coverings and other interior décor offers to them and their clients.”
The company will runs its flagship five-colour Xeikon 3500 digital press, which prints at 600sqm/hr in widths up to 516mm, in an end-to-end configuration with a web varnishing module with aqueous varnish for scratch and scuff protection of the end-product. The show gives Xeikon its first chance to demonstrate its new wallpaper rewinder: the WMR.
Alongside its Aura partners, Xeikon will show special developed coatings that create gold and embossing effects as well as specific Xeikon colours and UV reflective toners.
Weymans adds, “We are excited to be back at Heimtextil in 2017, showcasing unique solutions that will bring value to the Heimtextil audience as they look for ways to differentiate themselves. Attendees will be pleased to learn that the Xeikon dry toner printing process complies with international standards for interior decoration, comprehensively supporting end user requirements.
“Heimtextil presents a fantastic opportunity for us to engage directly with interior designers and architects and to inspire them to take their interior décor ideas to a new level, and to connect with existing and prospective Xeikon customers who are attending the event.”
