HP Press Is Post-Print Corrugated Solution

PALO ALTO, CA | HP Inc. recently unveiled the PageWide C500 press, said to be a flexible and robust industrial post-print corrugated solution. Leveraging 30 years of company’s thermal inkjet innovation and powered by single-pass HP PageWide Printing Technology, the new press is called a highly versatile, offset-quality, cost-effective solution for corrugated direct-to-board printing.

The new press is designed to seamlessly integrate into a standard production environment, from large integrated packaging converters with centralized or distributed printing, to small, independent sheet plants, enabling customers to affordably adopt digital technology for mainstream production and reinvent a segment ripe with opportunity.

Company says its Corrugated Grip Technology allows customers to handle a wide range of media from the lightest micro-flute to the heaviest double-wall board. Additionally, new water-based HP inks are designed for printing on the non-food contact surface of paperboard packaging and comply with global food safety regulations and industry guidelines necessary to produce food-compliant packaging.

HP plans to start testing the PageWide C500 Press at customer sites in 2017, and the press is expected to be commercially available in 2018.
