Xeikon stops its Trillium liquid toner program
Xeikon announced that it will stop its Trillium liquid toner program. Trillium, which was supposed to become the basis for the new generation digital presses, is turned out to be too complex and too costly an investment. Xeikon will continue its current toner systems and its recently launched inkjet presses. We know that the development of liquid toners is complex and costly, because of the Indigo digital printers. A development which first inventor Landa and later HP took years to perfect. Xeikon will undoubtedly look at the new generation inkjet heads and possibly also at the Landa Nanographic technology. The fact that Xeikon, now part of Flint Group, is looking at print technology in a businesslike manner is something we applaud, because no one is looking forward to the adventure like the one that the users of the first Indigos had to go through.
