Xeikon has announced that it has ceased development of its Trillium One liquid toner digital colour press. The company has been on a journey and a half with this technology, and cancelling it is a bold but sensible decision for two reasons.
Perhaps the most important is that since Trillium was first announced in 2012 the market has changed. The technology attracted lots of attention not least because, thanks to its High Viscosity Toner, it was the first digital press to use a toner with no VOCs. The output quality was also superb, but this is no longer enough for the markets Xeikon was going for.
