HP Announces New Indigo Digital Presses


PALO ALTO, CA | HP has expanded its digital press portfolio with new HP Indigo solutions said to offer customers increased productivity, simplified color management, and new capabilities for high-value applications.

The roll-fed HP Indigo WS6800 digital press reportedly offers label and packaging converters faster turnaround times through automated color management, a wider frame, and new ink capabilities for expanded applications. Company says the press delivers high crossover point in narrow web production versus analog for the vast majority of pressure-sensitive label jobs and will help support the rapid increase in volume of digitally produced labels.

Reportedly, the WS6800 helps customers reach new levels of productivity and reduce time spent preparing color profiles and PANTONE color matching by up to 75% with a new in-line spectrophotometer. Using closed-loop control, the spectrophotometer eliminates the need for manual color calibrations and adjustments. An expanded frame width, increased from 317 mm to 320 mm, allows for higher press output and reduced costs. In addition, label converters can produce up to 131 linear fpm in color using Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM), company notes.

The sheet-fed HP Indigo 7800 digital press offering print service providers (PSPs) a range of new capabilities, including the ability to print directly on synthetic substrates and plastic cards, and a new color management experience with an in-line spectrophotometer.
