The 30 inch wide roll-to-roll HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press is poised to transform the film converting market with its capability to digitally produce the vast majority of flexible packaging applications.
Printing any job on-demand at any time with no make-ready and minimum waste, the press offers converters and brand owners a prime opportunity for new business that responds to changing needs of consumers and the marketplace.
Upsurge in demand. The global flexible packaging market is growing steadily, alongside higher demand for shorter run lengths, shorter lead time, and higher print quality. This trend is accompanied by supply chain pressures, growing SKU diversity, and frequent and seasonal redesigns. Conventional printing has a limited ability to adapt while maintaining profitability. On-demand printing with the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press frees converters and brand owners from these constraints. HP Indigo technology also enables variable data printing including text, graphics, barcodes, and security elements.
Brand-accepted gravure print quality. Using HP Indigo’s unique ElectroInk technology, the press delivers the high print quality required by brand owners who set gravure as their color quality benchmark for flexible packaging. The 7 on-press ink stations enable converters to meet even the most stringent corporate branding requirements, using HP IndiChrome Pantone-certified on-press 4-, 6- and 7-color emulations, opaque white ink, and off-press mixed spot inks to match over 97% of PANTONE® colors.
Wide format captures most jobs. The press supports 30 inch web width, 29 inch wide image format, and 44 inch repeat length, capturing most consumer flexible packaging applications. Easy fit into existing production. The 30 inch wide web format facilitates quick ramp up and easy integration into current flexible packaging production processes.
Wide media gamut. The press can handle substrates from 0.4 to 10 pt., printing on film, paper, and aluminum. The priming unwinder, with its environmentally friendly, water-based primer, enables printing upon off-the-shelf materials. HP Indigo One Shot Color technology provides perfect color registration including on heat-sensitive materials.
