HP launched its HP2600 solvent ink that showed excellent durability results on tested materials such as CCL and Broadridge untreated PE. This ink will offer consistent alphanumerical codes and bar code print quality over the life of the cartridge. As part of HP’s focus on the environment, a substantial effort has been made to design an ink that is compliant with current and future regulatory requirements.
Also on display for the first time was its new HP thermal inkjet (TIJ) 4.0 108mm bulk solution for coding and marking on secondary packaging. The solution enables larger print swaths without stitching required, and at high speed with high resolution. Built in smart servicing technology of nozzles as well as more environmentally friendly inks will help customers minimize waste and downtime, both of which impact the bottom line.
HP’s venerable fixed imager 1000 (FI-1000) print engine was also showcased. It enables personalization directly onto the last-step of a production line, allowing small to medium size companies to take advantage of short-run, on-demand customized printing and fast turn-around of full-color package printing while eliminating the need for pre-printed label stocks.
“As businesses seek compliance via specialty solutions, HP Thermal Inkjet stands out as one of the most favorable options in the food and pharmaceutical industries,” says Philippe Lesage, VP and GM, Specialty Printing & Technology Solutions at HP. “With HP TIJ technology, brands can reduce maintenance costs and gain efficiencies from higher uptime on their packaging manufacturing processes, while fostering personal and meaningful experiences for their customers.”
