Xeikon terminates Trillium liquid toner project

Xeikon has canned its Trillium liquid toner programme, which it first revealed more than five years ago.

The Flint Group-owned manufacturer said the technology had "encountered several challenges" in bringing it to market as a commercial product since it was first shown in prototype as the Quantum single-colour unit in 2012.

Benoit Chatelard, president and CEO digital solutions, of Xeikon parent Flint Group, explained: “We are confident that the segments we operate can be well served with our current dry toner technology and the newly launched Panther UV inkjet technology."

"With our dry toner technology, we will continue our focus on both the packaging and document businesses, as well as specialty segments where we bring significant value including security printing and wall décor.”

Chatelard pointed out that Xeikon has positioned itself as a technology-agnostic provider, advising customers as to the most appropriate technology for their needs. 

“Changing market dynamics, but mainly ongoing technical issues in developing the liquid toner technology, including press uptime issues, encouraged us to take this difficult decision,” he added. “Our core vision remains supporting high volume, high quality, high value business for our customers in the graphic arts market and security printing.”
