HP Inkjet Web Press Exceeds 60 Systems Installed
CPI is witnessing many new growth opportunities as a result of its rapid adoption of HP equipment. The company's proprietary Quantum solutions—a series of integrated CPI book manufacturing lines based on HP Inkjet Web Press technology—recently produced their ten-millionth, digitally printed monochrome book. The company also has expanded opportunities in color publishing with HP; its newest press is the first HP Inkjet Web Press at CPI to be used for color printing.
The O'Neil Data Systems and CPI Group installations are part of a continuing expansion of HP Inkjet Web Press technology into new and expanding market applications and regional markets.
A new model for efficiency at Communisis
U.K. customer Communisis plc is a leading marketing services provider. The company, which already has HP T300 presses, recently announced its investment in two HP T400 presses for its Liverpool facility.
The first T400 has already been installed and the second will follow in June 2012. The installation triples Communisis's digital capacity and allows all of its existing transactional production to be migrated onto a digital print platform. Communisis's relationship with HP also enables a more flexible marketing and transactional communications process, allowing individual print runs and eliminating the need for pre-printed stationery and storage.
"The T400 investment by Communisis is driven by our key transactional customers wishing to access benefits which include greater bill clarity and personalized marketing communication," said Andy Blundell, chief executive, Communisis. "Building on the success of our earlier T300 deployment at Leeds, this is pioneering technology and our strong relationship with HP has ensured both an effective installation with great support plus a roadmap to ongoing technology upgrades."
New installations worldwide
Another customer expanding its use of digital printing is King Printing, which has purchased its second HP Inkjet Web Press, an HP T350 model, to pursue growth opportunities in short-run book manufacturing. The new press is currently being installed atKing Printing's Lowell, Mass., headquarters, where the company operates a high-speed inkjet production operation that also includes another HP T350 Color Inkjet Web Press.
