SMEs May Find HPs Indigo Press Beneficial
Small and medium-sized enterprises in the UK may find Hewlett-Packard's (HP) Indigo WS6000 Digital Press a cost-effective way to help them increase production. According to the firm, Springfield Solutions, a print and packaging company in Hull, has become the first UK business to install two Indigo Digital Presses. It now boasts the largest installed capital base of industrial webstream technology in the UK.
"This is not about counting machines on the shop floor; it's about expanding our ability to provide added-value decoration solutions to our clients," said Albert Dass, chairman of Springfield. "With the growing packaging portfolios of our clients and with print-run lengths continuing their downward trend, the role that digital print can play in providing cost-effective packaging print solutions is exploding exponentially," he said.
Springfield installed its first digital press in 1996, and has led the field in digital printing since then, HP said. The WS6000 can produce up to 90,000 sq m of print a month.
Recently, Quocirca, an industry analyst firm, named HP as a market leader for supplying managed print services in Europe.
