The HP Indigo 12000 HD digital press opens new digital business opportunities in professional and wedding photo printing, as well as upscale commercial and gallery applications using the industry’s widest range of print applications, substrates and inks. More than 100 presses have been chosen by print service providers worldwide.
‘The HP Indigo 12000 HD offers new growth opportunities through higher value, higher margin prints, along with the productivity and automation needed for customers to streamline operations and stay competitive,’ said Alon Bar-Shany, general manager, HP Indigo, HP Inc. ‘HP Indigo digital printing allows for customers to also help reduce their environmental footprint and reduce waste with on-demand prrter runs for print applications.’
The B2 sheetfed HP Indigo 12000 HD digital press achieves outstanding smoothness and sharpness using the HP Indigo HD Imaging System, a high-definition writing head that doubles print resolution and surpasses offset quality with an extended array of screening capabilities. More than 750 units of Indigo’s B2 sheet-fed platform are already installed, including the Indigo 10000, Indigo 12000 and now Indigo 12000 HD.
Any HP Indigo 12000 digital press can upgrade to HD technology offering a range of LPI screens – 220LPI, 250LPI and 290LPI. The HDFM screen mode, available on the HP Indigo 12000 HD, uses randomly-placed, smaller printing dots to create a new level of sharpness, ideal for applications with detailed images.
‘The Indigo 12000 HD system sustains commercial printers in evolving the strong-growth high-value print markets among commercial printers, which are becoming the base for a future of fully demand-customised print communications. Indigo’s print performance parity with offset print continues to set the digital standard,’ said Mark Hanley, president of IT strategies.
Some of the global print service providers that have chosen the press include District Photo, Druckverlag Kettler, Duggal Visual Solutions, Jinan Double 100 Photo, Pureprint, R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (RRD), and Suvi Color Lab.
