Pureprint is installing a new HP Indigo 12000 digital press and upgrading an existing HP Indigo 10000 digital press to become the first printer in the UK with three HP Indigo B2 HD digital presses.
All three presses will be fitted with the high resolution HD printing capability, which offers the finest print resolution from the HP print platform. In addition, HP has enhanced the colour management software on the new presses to further improve the consistency, repeatability and colour profiling.
The HP Indigo 12000 presses print a sheet size up to 750 x 530 mm and the HD technology doubles print resolution to achieve higher image smoothness by printing 1600 dpi with high lpi screen sets up to 290 lpi. The high definition imaging system uses an additional 12 laser beams to achieve the higher resolution.
Mark Handford, CEO of Pureprint Group, commented: ‘Since the first HP 12000 press came in we have experienced higher levels of productivity and our customers looking for fine art and photographic quality have also been really impressed with the higher resolution that we are able to offer them. The three HP Indigo B2 digital presses all with the HD technology together with our three HP Indigo 7800 presses mean our customers can now print variable content work to the highest quality in quantities from one to one million on the most demanding schedules. This is generating some great new business for us.’
The installation of the new press and all the upgrade work is due to be completed by the end of January.
