SPAIN HP has expanded its digital press portfolio with new HP Indigo solutions. New additions include: For the roll-fed HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press – a wider frame and new ink capabilities for expanded applications.

The company claims that the WS6800 will help customers reach new levels of productivity and reduce time spent preparing colour profiles and PANTONE colour matching by up to 75% with a new in-line spectrophotometer. Using closed-loop control, the spectrophotometer eliminates the need for manual colour calibrations and adjustments. An expanded frame width, increased from 317 mm to 320 mm, allows for higher press output and reduced costs. In addition, label converters can produce up to 131 linear feet per minute in colour using Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM).

The HP Indigo WS6800 supports the HP SmartStream Labels and Packaging Workflow Suite 4.1, powered by Esko. This workflow suite provides consistent repeat job control and advanced decision-making tools to help select suitable jobs for EPM. A new, high-definition 223 lines per inch (lpi) screen provides increased colour gamut space.

The new press is on display for the first time worldwide at Dscoop Asia in Bali and will also be showcased at ExpoPrint Latin America, Labelexpo Americas, GRAPH EXPO and Photokina 2014.
