• C.P. Bourg Booklet Maker ExPress for producing ready to ship booklets. It is comprised of the award-winning Bourg BM-e Booklet Maker and Bourg BCM-e Bleed Crease Module.’
The enhancement package also expands application versatility with a new red-fluorescing invisible ink, HP Indigo ElectroInk UV Red, which is valuable for tracking and anti-counterfeiting applications.
In addition, the HP Indigo 7600 is now integrated with a new version of HP SmartStream Production Center, a production management system that addresses the challenges of high-volume, short run digital printing by providing visibility and control of the entire production floor. The new version enhances production visibility and management information system (MIS) monitoring accuracy as well as production flexibility.
The enhancement package is expected to ship in October 2013. All of the new features backwards compatible with existing HP Indigo 7000, 7500 and 7600 model presses, helping customers protect their existing HP Indigo investments.
Capturing new applications with the HP Indigo 5X00 Series
The HP Indigo 5X00 Digital Press series is a versatile platform ideal for medium volume PSPs with a diverse mix of print jobs. With the HP Indigo 5600 Enhancement Package, PSPs have more flexibility to create high-margin applications.
A new Ultra Thick Substrate Kit enables PSPs to print up to 600-micron (24mil) on opaque PVC materials for production of high-margin synthetic applications such as mono-core plastic cards and additional applications.
The HP Indigo 5X00 series includes a one-shot printing mode, enabling printing of high-value specialty applications on synthetic substrates. For example, lenticular printing can be achieved using the press’ perfect registration in conjunction with Humaneyes Software on a lenticular substrate for effects such as 3D images, animations, movement, morphing and holograms.
These new capabilities are expected to be available worldwide in October 2013, and are backward compatible with existing HP Indigo 5500 and 5600 model presses.
Reducing the carbon footprint of HP Indigo
As a leader in environmental responsibility in the printing industry, HP has established a program to offset carbon emissions associated with the manufacturing and integration of new generation HP Indigo Digital Presses. Working with the Good Energy Initiative, HP Indigo supports projects in the community that offset the net contribution of carbon emissions from the manufacturing process. As a result, all HP Indigo series three and four presses are manufactured carbon neutral.
