The HP Indigo 7600, which will be commercially available at drupa, also features:
- Raised print, using multiple layers of ink, creating images raised up to 50 microns from the sheet.
- Textured effect, embossing or debossing the sheet with a mold created digitally on the press in under three minutes.
- Digital watermarking, for subtle, special visual effects.
- Compatibility with Color-Logic software for metallic effect imaging using white ink.
- Compatibility with more than 2,500 coated, uncoated and specialty media currently certified for use on the HP Indigo 7000 and 5000 series presses, including substrates specifically suited to photo specialty and silver halide replacement.
The press also can be integrated with the Lasermax Roll Systems PageReady system, an in-line or near-line cutter, stacker and slitter.
Momentum in portrait printing with HP Indigo WS6000p
HP has expanded customers' photo opportunities with the HP Indigo WS6000p Digital Press – a simplex solution that is deployed by leading customers to produce applications including run-of-one photobook covers, dust jackets, calendars and cards. In addition, it represents a high-quality, economical alternative to silver halide professional portrait and consumer prints printing.
The 340-mm (13.4-inch) wide, roll-fed press can be configured with an optional in-line GMP LAMIMASTER-34 laminator for professional portrait quality with luster effect or glossy finish for consumer prints on a range of HP Indigo-certified photo media including real photo paper. Multiple photographic media are available for the silver halide replacement applications, including papers from new HP Preferred Media Partner Mitsubishi Paper Mills, the first paper mill in the Asia-Pacific region with this status.
Available now, the HP Indigo WS6000p model features HP Indigo-exclusive six-color digital press photo imaging using Light Cyan and Light Magenta inks. The light inks reduce granularity, providing smoother images and tone transitions, as well as a true photo look and feel. The press can produce 4,800 six-color, 203 x 254 mm (8x10 inch) prints per hour, or more than 25,000 100 x 150-mm (4 x 6-inch) prints per hour, enabling a single press to replace multiple silver halide minilabs.
New business opportunities with the HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press
The HP Indigo 5500 Digital Press is the best-selling press in Indigo's history, with more than 1,500 units produced since the product's launch in May 2007. HP is building on the success of this press with the new HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press.
Available now, the HP Indigo 5600 runs at 68 ppm in standard color mode, 136 ppm for two-color jobs and 272 ppm for mono jobs. In addition, the press features EPM, allowing color printing at 90 ppm.
The press features an optional "One Shot" printing mode enabling customers to use the press to produce special applications printed on Teslin, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), PET (polyethylene terephthalate), PC (polycarbonate) and other synthetic substrates. The press switches easily between regular and One Shot printing modes.
Most HP Indigo 5600 and 7600 features will be available as optional field upgrades to existing HP Indigo 5500, 7000 and 7500 presses in summer 2012.
Breakthrough productivity in high-end photo merchandise
With the wider-format HP Indigo 10000, customers can print oversize photo products, as well as at least twice as many photo pages per sheet as compared with other HP Indigo sheetfed presses.
