HP has launched two new six-colour PageWide ultra high-volume inkjet web presses for pre-print corrugated packaging: the HP PageWide T1190 and HP PageWide T1170.
Shown at Fespa in Berlin HP says its new flagship PageWide T1190 Press offers 67 per cent more throughput productivity compared with the current PageWide, delivering up to 305metres per minute in six colours at full press speed.
The company says the addition of six-colour printing (CMYKOV) also expands the colour gamut for matching colours, opening new digital possibilities for brands, including short-runs, faster turnaround time, and versioning. HP adds that  the ultra-wide 2.8m thermal inkjet web presses will appeal to packaging converters seeking analogue to digital transformation with high-volume productivity in offset quality for pre-print corrugated packaging applications. Additionally, the presses use HP A30 true water-based inks, containing no UV-reactive chemistries, and requiring no additional barriers for food packaging applications.
The PageWide T1170 Press prints 183metres per minute in six colours, compared with four-colour printing at the same speed on the PageWide T1100S. Both presses handle coated and uncoated media, from 80 gsm to 350 gsm.
The HP Multi-lane print architecture offers increased productivity by splitting the web into multiple print lanes, so operators can print different jobs, with different box sizes and run lengths, in the individual lanes. You can queue multiple ultra-short or short runs and print them together while you print a long run another lane.
