Press Release: 06 August 2009

HP to Present Innovative Solutions for Packaging at FachPack 2009

Also available on the stand (7A-507) will be information about HP Indigo digital presses for labels, flexible packaging, shrink sleeve and folding carton applications. The new HP Indigo WS6000 Digital Press has an enhanced thick substrate capability and can handle materials from 12 - 450 microns, making folding carton production on final substrates, for short-runs or trialling, cost-effective.

End-to-end rigid substrate production

Featured in operation on the stand will be the HP Scitex FB6700 Printer with inline laminator. This six-colour printer uses standard format artwork files to print a range of rigid applications including POP/POS displays, samples, short-run packaging and exhibition graphics. Using water-based inks, the HP Scitex FB6700 Printer produces up to 29 1.6 x 3.2m (5.2 x 10.5 feet) sheets per hour. Inline lamination takes advantage of the printer's full automation capabilities. A Kongsberg XP 24 digital cutting table, from EskoArtwork will also be on the stand to demonstrate the versatility and productivity of a fully digital production line.

Teams from two HP Scitex FB6700 Printer owners, Pankarte PLV, of Strasbourg, France, and STI Group (stands 4-229, 5-111) (STI - Gustav Stabernack GmbH), of Hessen, Germany, will print six real jobs from customers in a "Tower of Production" demonstration on the stand. This will provide a powerful illustration of the quality and production capabilities of the printer.

Thermal inkjet solutions for packaging

HP SPS OEM partners will be on the HP stand at FachPack demonstrating solutions for 2-D barcode printing using HP thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology.

Weber Marking Systems and Mark-O-Print (stand 1-147) (both part of the Bluhm Weber Group) will be printing on non-porous substrates using UV-curable ink from Triton Ltd.
