Print inspection investment driving sales in the pharmaceutical sector
Labels in Motion has installed an HP Indigo WS6800 digital press that it is using to produce single-serve supplement packets for parent company Xymogen.
Labels in Motion serves as an in-plant facility for its nutraceutical parent company Xymogen. Specializing in vitamins, supplements and medicine labels, Labels in Motion was tasked with producing single-serve supplement packets, but its previous competitive digital printing technology could not handle the substrate needed to produce the supplement packets. Labels in Motion selected the HP Indigo WS6800 digital press because it supports a wide range of standard, off-the-shelf substrates with in-line priming as well as pre-treated materials and offers up to seven ink stations for a wide color gamut.
‘With the HP Indigo WS6800 digital press, our company is now producing high-quality, single-serve supplement packets in a timely, cost effective manner using packaging materials that are approved for food safety,’ said Steve Kirchof, vice president of sales and operations manager at Labels in Motion. ‘We considered other options, but the speed of the HP Indigo WS6800 digital press combined with the price and the ability to do one-offs for our supplements was a very enticing combination for us.’
