The new HP Indigo press 4050 has been designed to take flexible packaging printers into the digital age. With seamless production from prepress to finished product, the HP Indigo press 4050 is ideal for flexible packaging applications.
Paper, film, plastic and foil substrates ranging in weight from 12m to 250m can be handled by the HP Indigo press ws4050, with print resolutions from 812 x 812 dpi to 812 x 1624 dpi.
HP ElectroInk is available in a virtually unlimited range of colours including 97% of PANTONE® Colours. Special brand and corporate colours can be mixed in-house with the HP IndiChrome onpress Ink Mixing System or ordered via the web for external formulation. HP ElectroInk dries instantly so there are no problems with set-off during the rewinding or finishing processes.
The ability of HP ElectroInk to match the PANTONE® Colour range exactly means that digitally produced flexible packaging products can be successfully integrated into conventional runs without difficulty. In fact, both jobs can use the same prepress files.
While the HP Indigo press ws4050 is designed for production runs, it is also a valuable and cost-effective tool for trials and test marketing, simply because the results so closely resemble conventional packaging print runs.
Variable data printing makes numbering, language versions and special promotional packaging not only easy, but affordable for the packaging buyer and profitable for the printer.
