Integ Acquires the First HP Indigo 7K Digital Press
Integ, a creative communications production company in the U.S., has acquired the first HP Indigo 7K Digital Press manufactured in the new 19˝ product line now launching worldwide. Integ will now be able to deliver new innovation in digital marketing to empower its customers to engage with audiences in new and unexpected ways.
Integ, a long-time operator of HP Indigo digital solutions, is upgrading its digital printing operations with the installation of the HP Indigo 7K. The HP Indigo 7K offers expanded digital versatility thanks to supporting thicker media and more than 20 specialty inks, including metallic colors, along with its core advantages of on-demand, unlimited variability.
“This new technology is bold and exciting, enabling us to differentiate our offering and allows our clients to use the HP Indigo 7K abilities to transform printed pieces to tell their story most effectively,” said David R. Anderton, President & CEO of Integ. “The fact that the Indigo can print both metallics and emboss has already started a buzz among our clients. Its ability to also print both variable data and images is something we cannot wait to offer our clients.”
Integ has a long history of seeking new innovations in print technology to better serve clients. Over the last five years, Integ has also spread its footprint across Central Texas with new facilities in Bryan and Austin, Texas. Along with the new facilities, Integ has invested in bringing the latest in print technology to these areas. The decision to replace the HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press with the Series 3 HP Indigo 7K is aimed to uniquely position the company within current and potential markets as creative and innovative. Integ opted for a fully loaded press, including textured and embossed special effects printing.
“I’m happy to see Integ upgrade to the new HP Indigo 7K as they continue to expand and grow. With one of the widest range of applications in the industry, this new press will allow Integ to offer countless digital print options to their clients,” said Haim Levit, HP Indigo general manager.
HP Indigo 7K powering endless innovation in applications
The HP Indigo 7K Digital Press expands high-value, 19˝ format digital applications with endless possibilities thanks to the widest-ever range of media on the platform and over 20 specialty inks. Media gamut ranges up to 22 pt (550 microns /650gsm), while special inks include HP Indigo ElectroInk Silver, fluorescents, high-opacity Premium White, Invisible Yellow for security and unique applications, and ElectroInk Easy Release ink for scratch-offs. New features will be upgrade options to the HP Indigo 7000 series.
Integ also services many brands and high-profile universities that all have unique color requirements. HP Indigo 7K digital press allows it to deliver the jobs in fast turnaround times with high quality, while transitioning many of those projects from offset to digital. The HP Indigo 7K provides a high sustainability profile for Integ to pass on to its customers, as the new press is CO2 neutral, can print on FSC Certified paper; and produces little waste, said Anderton.
The new HP 7K Digital Press is also HP PrintOS connected and will enable Integ to take advantage of apps that help improve real-time volume, maintenance, and performance metrics, in addition to greater insight in staff and job scheduling, press utilization, and load balancing across plants.
