Geostick Group has invested in four HP Indigo 6K presses, as it moves to upscale its digital printing operations to drive higher volumes of labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging products.
The new HP Indigo 6K presses, the first units of the new press to be installed worldwide, will be delivered to the new Geostick Digital Printing Center opening in August in Uithoorn, Netherlands. They will replace an existing fleet of WS6800 and will maintain converter’s total multi-site operation of 10 HP Indigo digital presses, including two HP Indigo 20000.
‘As a long experienced user from the HP Indigo presses, we wanted to take the next step, investing in the new HP Indigo 6K for our new Digital Printing Center. The Spot Master feature will help save time and is more sustainable due to media material savings, therefore generating higher overall productivity,’ commented Cees Schouten, operations director at Geostick Group.
The press introduces Spot Master, using a new patented algorithm for fast and accurate color matching, enabling converters to quickly reach brand colors with high color consistency and uniformity across the entire print frame. Additionally, the new HP Indigo 6K can deliver more applications using higher opacity white for shrink sleeves, new inks including metallics, fluorescents, invisible red and green for brand protection applications and new varnishes from leading partners for higher durability.
With the installation of the new HP Indigo 6K fleet, Geostick will migrate its workflow to the HP Indigo Production Pro for Labels and Packaging Print Server, which is offering more RIP power than previous generations.
