HP highlights new customer adoptions in Asia Pacific and Japan
Highlighting continued adoption of its industry-leading digital presses across Asia Pacific and Japan, Hewlett Packard (HP) announces new customer adoptions driven by the ability of the company’s technology to provide differentiation and improve customers’ competitive advantage. Gido van Praag, vice president and general manager, Graphics Solutions Business, HP Asia Pacific and Japan said that the changing commercial printing business conditions are forcing printing companies to take a hard look at their technology, application offerings and how they create a competitive advantage in the marketplace. “HP’s portfolio of digital solutions is the future of the printing industry, fueling a transformation from analog to digital while offering printing companies new avenues to enhance profitability,” he added.
HP recently marked its 20th Year Anniversary of HP Indigo’s first press launch at IPEX 93. This is a symbolic milestone for HP Indigo, which is now experiencing strong adoption of its fourth generation of presses. As of September 2013, the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press has had more than 60 installations in more than 20 countries which include Asia Pacific and Japan.
PrimaGraphia Digital and PT Suburmitra Grafistama, both leading commercial printing companies in Indonesia looking for ramping up their existing digital printing capabilities and strengthen their competitive edge have adopted HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press. Korea-based Photomon is the first printer to install HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press locally. With this addition to their HP printing fleet, the company could significantly enhance its speed of operations and move into high-value packaging print work.
An order for HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press by Glo Color Labs will drive further growth in its commercial printing segment while providing new and innovative products to the photo industry in India. Further in India, Printonica (Sri Sivarama Digital Press) has installed HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press to enhance their ability to apply special effects and supply world-class photo books to its customers.
In Japan, momentum continues to build with Taisei Futaba Industry, East Asahi Co and SANKO Co have selected HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press as their platform for growth into hybrid printing and a wide range of high-value commercial printing applications. Australian company CMYK Hub which operates on a business-to-business model, was quick to take on a second press, the HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press, after seeing a rapid growth in its digital printing output soon after their investment in HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press.
CyberPrintGroup installed HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press at their print facility in Thailand to extend their printing capabilities into new application areas, such as printing on plastic and metallic substrates. Another Thailand-based customer, printing specialist Thung Hua Sinn Co has added HP Indigo WS6600 Digital Press to its growing digital printing fleet to take on wider paper packaging and label jobs, as well as move into high-value applications such as premium carton packaging and finished product samples. An order for the HP Indigo WS66000 Digital Press by NODA Printing (Tianjin) will enhance its productivity and provide high-quality printing solutions for its high-volume labels and packaging production.
Increased adoption and use of HP digital presses have given customers more and more benefits of the power of digital to deliver higher productivity, high-value applications and offset quality.
