TechnologyHP Indigo 8000 Digital Press
The HP Indigo 8000 Digital Press doubles the speed of the market's best-selling, narrow-web digital label solution. The press speed is 262 feet per minute in Enhanced Productivity Mode and 197 feet per minute in four-color mode, a 2x increase in effective printing speed compared to the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press. The HP Indigo 8000 Digital Press uses two identical HP Indigo print engines; the first engine prints full odd frames and the second engine prints the even frames. The two print engines constantly calibrate against each other to ensure tight image registration at full speed. The 8000 lets converters meet strict brand color standards using up to seven ink stations and a color gamut that reaches 97% of PANTONE(r) colors. The technology enables converters to move towards full digital production, allowing companies to utilize the HP Indigo technology for pressure sensitive labels and shrink sleeves, areas in which flexography has traditionally been dominant.
