Xerox debuts new White Dry Ink

Westkey Graphics, one of western Canada’s largest privately-owned print providers, has purchased White Dry Ink for the fifth station of its Xerox iGen 5 Press. With this addition, WestKey Graphics becomes the first print provider in North America to have all five ink options for the iGen 5’s fifth station — enabling the company to take on new applications that replicate client brand colors.

With the I Gen 5, Westkey will be able to produce digitally printed folding carton packaging, such as gable and wine boxes, as well as flexible labels and high-end point-of-sale pieces with full variability. Along with increased digital color accuracy, matte-finish options, short-run flexibility and the use of thicker stock materials, additional orange, green, blue, Clear Dry Ink and White Dry Ink capabilities for the fifth station allow for specialty font and image enhancement.

“Westkey has always aimed to deliver innovative offerings and value to our clients,” said President and CEO Alfie Karmal. “We are excited to be investing in the innovative technology behind the iGen 5 and White Dry Ink. Now, we’ll be able to continue our leadership in the market. This technology, along with our partnership with Xerox, allows us to do more work in digital than we previously did on offset. We’re able to lead our market in short-run packaging and now have the means to grow our business with existing customers, by offering more innovative applications.”

White Dry Ink will be available for installations on Oct. 2, 2017.
