Color Inkjet Web Press Bound for BR Printers
SAN JOSE, CA—BR Printers is set to install an HP T230 color inkjet web press and an HP Indigo 7600 digital press, which the company believes will effectively make it the only printer on the West Coast with the ability to print books in four-color inkjet. The presses will be installed by June 1.
The HP T230 inkjet prints up to 400 fpm color and mono, with 1,200 nozzles per inch native resolution. The HP T230 press supports a broad range of media compatibility, uncoated offset stock, ground wood, newsprint and printable media. Supported printable media weights range from 60 gsm up to 215 gsm.
“This is one of the most exciting days in the history of BR Printers,” said Adam DeMaestri, president of BR Printers. “With the installation of the HP T230 press, we will be the only book printer west of the Rockies with the ability to print books in four-color inkjet. This is going to give our clients a distinct competitive advantage in terms of time to market, reduced shipping rates and lower costs on high-quality digitally printed books.”
BR Printers also has production facilities in Independence, KY, and East Windsor, NJ. The company’s product portfolio includes self-publishing solutions, print-on-demand, short run publications, Web-to-print, rebinds and other digital printing solutions.
