HP announced it is extending its worldwide leadership in the labels industry with the introduction of a new silver ink for the HP Indigo WS6600 Digital Press.
The new ink creates breakthrough digital print possibilities for converters and print service providers (PSPs).
Until now, silver metallic print, which is used for the production of more than two billion square meters of prime labels, has mostly been printed using conventional print processes. The introduction of HP Indigo ElectroInk Silver enables for the first time the printing of high-quality silver ink on digital print applications. It opens up opportunities for more jobs, and offers converters a cost-effective, high-quality solution for these needs.
Expected to be commercially available in early 2014, HP Indigo ElectroInk Silver is suitable for a range of label applications, including paint, automotive, household chemicals, beer and soft drinks.
