HP Completes HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press Beta Testing

June 4, 2010
PALO ALTO, CA—June 4, 2010—HP has completed beta testing for its new HP Indigo 7500 digital press, which offers increased automation and exceptional productivity for higher print volumes with offset quality print. The new press was beta tested at eight sites across Europe and the Americas, including Grandville Printing Co. in Grandville, MI. During the three month long testing period, those firms collectively produced more than 15 million impressions on their beta units.

Launched at Ipex, the HP Indigo 7500 is built on the proven success of the HP Indigo 7000 digital press and is HP's most technologically advanced, high-volume, sheet-fed digital printing solution.

"Our new HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press responds to market trends for higher productivity and longer run lengths," said Alon Bar-Shany, vice president and general manager, Indigo division, HP. "It offers low cost of ownership combined with an unprecedented range of business opportunities for print service providers. The ground-breaking print technologies embedded into the new press ensure that it provides superior print quality, maximum productivity and increased versatility."

Intelligent automation for increased productivity

The HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press features enhanced automation for maximum flexibility and to make it the ultimate sheet-fed, digital printing powerhouse.

With its ability to print at high speeds – up to 120 letter-size pages per minute (ppm) in four colors or 240 ppm in monochrome or two colors – the HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press is ideal for fast-paced production environments.

The HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press is equipped with the patent pending integrated Vision System, delivering increased uptime, through automatic hands free press calibrations and highly accurate diagnostics, to eliminate time consuming and costly errors.

The optional embedded Universal Finishing Interface (UFI) enables the end-to-end automation of the entire production processes. The UFI makes it easy to integrate digital inline or near-line partner finishing systems, reducing production costs, shortening turnaround times and eliminating human errors.

This combination of high-speed and exceptional productivity enables the press to push the crossover point with conventional printing to thousands of pages.

Easy-to-integrate workflows

The HP Indigo 7500 connects with one of two high-performance, scalable HP SmartStream digital front ends (DFEs).

• HP SmartStream Production Pro Print Server is a robust, scalable, versatile and high-performance print server, capable of managing large print volumes. This DFE increases productivity with automated job routing and processing, as well as detailed job and production floor tracking.

• HP SmartStream Production Plus Print Server, Powered by Creo, is designed for general commercial printers and provides added value through a full graphic arts feature set for out-of-the-box job control and editing in single and multiple-press environments.
