The number of microbreweries is exploding across the globe, all creating these small masterpieces to the likes of each individual. The nature of this business is that these are small batches which might only exist for one edition. This creates a whole range of short-run labels which, when the filling line has a SA label applicator, are perfect for the Xeikon digital label presses. Certain countries require the labels to be washed of during the recycling process. Specific glues have been developed by self-adhesive label substrate manufacturers.
What is the value of digital printing?
