2nd HP Indigo press at Astron Packaging, Ahmedabad


Astron Packaging Limited, one of the leading packaging converters headquartered in Ahmedabad, has recently installed second HP Indigo WS6600. The installation of second HP Indigo press will provide the company with increased production efficiency, advanced automation, higher uptime and serviceability for high-quality and medium volume labels and folding carton production. Together with the HP SmartStream IN 100 Labels and Packaging server version 4 powered by Esko, Astron Packaging Ltd expects to increase their productivity three-fold.

“We are very happy with the installation of the new HP Indigo WS6600. We are impressed with machine’s immense flexibility in speed, size and printing substrates said Niraj Darji, senior vice president, Astron Packaging Limited. He added, “We will also have state-of-the-art colour management capability which will help us run simple automated jobs and save on time. All this will help increase and enhance our production capabilities.” Astron Packaging started off with manufacturing corrugated boxes in 2002. The introduction of digital printing capabilities into its operations in 2010 with a HP Indigo WS4500 Digital Press enabled the company to take on short-run work and introduce high-value applications such as variable data printing to its labels and packaging operations.
