HP Announces First-ever GRACoL Certification for Digital Presses
End-to-end solutions shown at Dscoop include an HP Indigo press 5500 with a thick substrate feeder option that enables users to perform new applications such as folding carton production.
HP also is showcasing at the conference the wide variety of media available for use with HP Indigo presses. The number of media certified to run on HP Indigo presses grew by 30 percent in 2008, with more than 1,800 different papers, synthetic papers, films, foils, folding carton materials and label stocks available. More than 600 of the media certified for use with HP Indigo presses have a third-party sustainability-related certification, such as Sustainable Forestry Initiative, Forest Stewardship Council and Chain of Custody, and are manufactured with alternative energy sources or contain recycled content.
Continuing a trend for the conference in introducing digital press users to the additional value and opportunities available with large-format printing, the Dscoop solutions showcase also will feature products such as the HP Designjet L65500 Printer with HP Latex Inks, the HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer and the HP Scitex FB950 Printer.
