HP – Presses for high-volume digital corrugated printing
USA • The company announced two new six-colour PageWide high-volume inkjet web presses for pre-print corrugated packaging, the HP PageWide T1190 and HP PageWide T1170.
The PageWide T1190 press delivers up to 305 m/min (1000 fpm) in six colours at full press speed. The addition of six-colour printing (CMYKOV) also expands the color gamut for matching colors. The PageWide T1170 Press prints a 183 m/min (600 fpm) in six colours.
The T1170 and T1190 presses are suitable for both coated and uncoated media, from 80 gsm to 350 gsm. Additionally, HP Multi-lane Print Architecture (MLPA) boosts plant productivity by splitting the web into multiple print lanes, so different jobs, with different box sizes and run lengths, can be printed in the individual lanes. Multiple ultra-short or short runs can be queued and printed together while a long run is printed in another lane.
These ultra-wide 2800 mm (110”) thermal inkjet technology web presses are suitable for packaging converters seeking analog-to-digital transformation with high-volume productivity for pre-print corrugated packaging applications. Additionally, the presses use HP A30 water-based inks, containing no UV-reactive chemistries, and requiring no additional barriers for food packaging applications.
