Xeikon, a market leader in digital colour printing technology for the labels and packaging as well as the graphic arts printing industry and a subsidiary of the Flint Group, today reported that it has qualified Ahlstrom-Munksjö WALLSTAR DIGITAL® nonwoven wallcovering media for use on Xeikon digital presses as part of the alliance between the two companies.

It all started with computer-cut wall tattoos. Now, eleven years later, K&L Wall Art is one of the leading e-commerce platforms for personalised wall designs. The company produces home accessories at its 1,500m2 facility in Berlin, exclusively using digital technology. In May 2018, the company added Xeikon’s wallpaper system, the Wall Decoration Suite, to its production portfolio, including a Xeikon 8500 single-pass digital duplex printer.

Demonstrating the immensely large variety in digital printing was the focus for this year's FESPA in Berlin for the Felix Schoeller Group headquartered in Osnabrück. Brightly coloured trade fair walls printed on wallpaper material are the key focus in the 91 m2 space in Hall 2.1, Stand C52, proving to be a real eyecatcher for visitors. These included two sophisticated wall motifs printed on Felix Schoeller's STYLine non-woven wallpapers using the Xeikon Wall Decoration Suite.

The ability of Xeikon’s breakthrough Wall Decoration Suite to support cost effective short run production proved to be strong enough convincer for PPS and K&L Wall Art at this year’s Heimtextil. So much so that both German operations signed deals for the production lines during the five-day Frankfurt show.

German digital printer PPS. Imaging GmbH has invested in a Xeikon Wall Decoration Suite, including a Xeikon 8500 digital printing system with an X-800 front end and two CMS/WMF walldeco finishing units. The company took the decision towards the end of 2017 in order to service the growing creative market for personalised wallpaper for hotels, cafés, offices, trade shows, events and homes. Installation is due to be completed by the end of March 2018.
