CCL Industries installs first HP Indigo 35K
Milestone 100th HP Indigo Press for the label and packaging company
HP Inc. and CCL Industries Inc. (CCL) announced the milestone installation of CCL’s 100th HP Indigo digital press.
CCL specialises in label, security and packaging solutions for global corporations, government institutions, small businesses, and consumers. Its global fleet of HP Indigo digital label presses is running at more than 60 sites worldwide across its CCL Label, CCL Design, Avery, and Checkpoint operations.
In a move to expand further into the folding carton market, CCL has installed the world’s first HP Indigo 35K Digital Press at its CCL Label Healthcare facility in Montreal, Canada.
Recently introduced at DScoop Edge Fusion 2021, the HP Indigo 35K is a new flagship press for high-value folding carton production built on the HP Indigo 30000. The B2 sheetfed press is now commercially available.
The new press provides premium colour and print quality with 40% overall higher productivity with faster job changeover, colour accuracy with Spot Master, and a more robust paper path from the feeder to the coater.
The HP Indigo 35K offers high-definition printing, security inks, and variable data printing for track-and-trace solutions and security elements. As a result, the HP Indigo folding carton solution can deliver multi-layered brand protection applications on one press, in one pass to serve the health and personal care, plastic card and high-end folding carton markets.
“We have collaborated with HP for more than 15 years in the development of digital printing and workflows in the packaging industry and we are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone with HP Indigo. Their technology continues to be a vital component in our moves to connect digitally with our customers and consumers on a global basis,” said Geoffrey T. Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer of CCL Industries Inc.
The CCL fleet of more than 100 digital presses spans the breadth of the HP Indigo portfolio, including narrow-web and mid-web labels and packaging presses, as well as the B2 sheetfed HP Indigo 30000 and commercial HP Indigo 12000.
“The continued evolution of HP Indigo’s digital print technologies opens new markets, applications and possibilities for our customers. We are incredibly pleased for CCL to reach their 100th HP Indigo press operating in their global network,” said Haim Levit, general manager, HP Indigo. “We are seeing continued market momentum in smart label and packaging solutions with the need for brands to boost production protection.”
