HP makes Dscoop Indigo launches
HP has used global online user event Dscoop to launch several new products, and given the green light to the commercial availability of its flagship HP Indigo 35K folding carton print system.
HP Indigo is supplied exclusively by Currie Group in Australia and New Zealand.
The HP Indigo 35K Digital Press, for high-value folding carton production is built on the HP Indigo 30000, and says HP provides premium colour and print quality with 40 per cent overall higher productivity, thanks to faster job changeover, colour accuracy with Spot Master, and a more robust paper path from the feeder to the coater.
The company launched a new set of features for its drupa portfolio, launched a year ago. These include the new Automatic Alert Agent 2.0 for HP Indigo Series 4 presses (HP Indigo 12000 and 15K). This inline inspection system scans every printed sheet and compares it to its digital reference, automatically identifying print defects.
There has been an expansion of HD printing capabilities, with the new Fine Line RIP. HP says this new rip and press computing infrastructure “deliver superior capabilities” for small solid text and fine lines, producing “the sharpest Kanji fonts and complex security patterns”.
The HP Indigo 100K non-stop printer, now includes Automatic Pallet Replacement (APR), enabling continuous print with non-stop stacking, allowing PSPs to achieve even higher productivity levels for this platform.
The company has also introduced the new HP Indigo 6P Digital Press, a narrow-web press dedicated for photo and publishing applications. This press expands the capabilities of the Indigo 6800p with a series of innovations for productivity and versatility, including a larger, 320x980mm image area and faster rip.
Spot Master is now available on both the HP Indigo 25K and 35K, and will be available for the HP Indigo 6K later this year. Spot Master uses a new patented algorithm for fast and accurate colour matching, enabling converters to reach brand colours within five minutes, with an accuracy of less than two delta E, and less than three meters of waste.
HP also launched HP Indigo Secure, a new suite security and brand protection solutions, to help security printers and print service providers protect their customers from counterfeiters and other product threats. HP Indigo Secure is a set of solutions including hardware, software, media, and inks for security printing and brand protection, based on proprietary HP Indigo LEP technology and partner solutions.
HP Indigo 6K Secure Press is HP Indigo’s first secure digital press designed especially for the security printing market. The press is a one-pass, end-to-end security printing solution featuring multiple security layers in collaboration with Jura JSP. The press is available for certified security printers.
