PALO ALTO, CA | HP reports that Nosco, Gurnee, IL, a full-service packaging solutions provider, will be the first US customer for the HP Indigo 30000 digital press, the new 29-in.-format, sheet-fed press for folding cartons.
Nosco plans to use the HP Indigo 30000 to extend digital printing to larger-order quantities of folding cartons and to produce customized cartons using variable data for serialization, personalization, and brand protection. Nosco serves customers in regulated industries such as pharmaceutical, natural health and personal care and has been using HP Indigo systems since installing its first press in 2004.
“We will soon be able to offer more digital printing capabilities to our customers, helping them improve cycle time and speed to market, lower inventory and obsolescence, and produce short- to medium-run folding cartons more cost-effectively,” says Nosco president Russ Haraf. “Given the increased format size, speed, and versatility of the HP Indigo 30000, we can produce cartons economically with a turnaround time of days instead of weeks.”
HP made the announcement in conjunction with Pack Expo 2012, where HP is exhibiting for the third consecutive year to showcase its end-to-end digital solutions for labels, folding cartons, and flexible packaging applications.
The 30000 press uses the same printing technologies as the HP Indigo WS6000 series but has a larger format size of 29.5 x 20.9 in. It is compatible with carton stocks to 24 pt thick. The 30000 Digital Press is scheduled to be available for launch customers in late 2013, with general commercial availability in 2014.
