Setting a new productivity benchmark in digital narrow web printing, the HP Indigo 8000 offers high-volume converters end-to-end label production at a speed up to 80m/min. Working inline or offline with an ABG FAST Track semi-rotary die cut unit, the press provides an efficient all-digital workflow as well as real-time quality assurance, using AVT inspection technology.
In addition to this exciting development are significant upgrades on the HP Indigo 20000 and 30000 Digital Presses, as well as new ink and substrate options offering converters and brands unmatched application possibilities at faster speeds.
‘Leading brands are increasingly leveraging HP Indigo labels and packaging solutions to engage with consumers in targeted, meaningful and measurable ways,’ stated Alon Bar Shany, General Manager, Indigo division, HP. ‘And today, converters are uniquely positioned to redefine labels and packaging standards with greater productivity, versatility and turnaround times for a wide range of applications.’
The HP Indigo 8000, WS6800 and 20000 Digital Presses support HP Indigo ElectroInk Premium White, a versatile new ink that helps converters deliver a wider range of opacity levels, plus a new colour automation package that perfects colour accuracy, consistency and repeatability, enabling converters to reach any brand colour in minutes.
Featuring at drupa 2016, the HP Indigo 8000, WS6800, 20000 and 30000 upgrades also offer HP PrintOS connectivity, allowing converters to monitor print status remotely as well as track and improve production performance over time.
Since drupa 2012, HP customers have more than doubled HP Indigo WS6000 series Digital Press installations to beyond 1000 units, and installed more than 80 HP Indigo 20000 and 30000 Digital Presses.
