HP Unveils Color Inkjet Web Press Technology, Showcases New HP Indigo Portfolio
Supporting end-to-end production
At drupa 2012, HP also is offering the first public demonstration of innovative workflow solutions to support HP Indigo press customers in increasing end-to-end productivity and reducing overall production costs.
HP SmartStream Production Center is a workflow system that addresses the challenges of producing and delivering high volumes of short-run jobs, reducing turnaround time and increasing profitability.
HP Indigo Finishing Connectivity solutions extend the Job Definition Format (JDF) workflow into the bindery, reducing make-ready time, waste and errors while increasing efficiency, profitability and integrity. This connectivity is being demonstrated with HP SmartStream Solution Partners, including Horizon, Polar-Mohr and Duplo, and will be available as standard in Version 5.0 of HP SmartStream Production Pro Print Server.
Extending the power of variable data to offset HP Print Module Solutions, demonstrated for the first time at drupa 2012, enable PSPs to imprint variable mono and color graphics, text, and barcodes, on preprinted documents. The color and mono systems print up to 244 meters (800 feet) per minute and provide breakthrough running cost. A stitching feature that connects multiple 108-mm (4.25-inch) modules extends the printing area available to PSPs for additional flexibility and scalability. With automated self-servicing and reliable HP Scalable Print Technology, the new solution maximizes uptime and increases productivity.
HP today announced Adphos and Graphic System Services as new HP SmartStream Solution Partners providing paper transport systems and services for HP Print Module Solutions in the United States, and Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
New opportunities in large-format printing New solutions and media offerings for HP Designjet and Scitex large-format printing customers extend beyond traditional signage to produce high-value applications, such as décor, textiles, traffic signage and packaging.
