Small- to medium-sized commercial printers can now add digital short-run color and variable-data printing capabilities with the new HP Indigo 1050.
Replacing HP's Indigo 1000, the 1050 offers several enhancements that allow it to increase productivity and reduce costs. It features paper sizes up to 12.6 x 18.2 in., resolutions up to 800 x 24000 dpi (in High-Resolution Imaging mode), and liquid HP ElectroInk. The new printer offers standard 4-color (CMYK) inks, as well as the optional HP IndiChrome 6-color (CMYK violet, orange). In addition, users can mix custom spot colors with HP's ink-mixing system, and also utilize its special inks: invisible red ink (for Track & Trace security capabilities), and fluorescent yellow or pink inks. Its speed also has been ramped up: Where the 1000 press offered 1980 pages/hr, the 1050 can print up to 8000 single-color pages/hr (two-up) or 2000 4-color images/hr (two-up).
The Indigo 1050 is packaged with HP Indigo Yours Truly software, which provides full personalization and imposition for variable-data printing. Other upgrades include a more powerful computer, a large job-file capacity, and simultaneous batching/printing ability. To create a complete end-to-end workflow solution, users can add a Duplo near-line CD-645 XY cutter, Duplo near-line PDC booklet makers, and Dorn off-line UV coater.
Optional equipment/configurations include HP IndiChrome 5- and 6-color printing, ink-mixing system, and upgraded server/RIP.
List price on the Indigo 1050 is $159,000.
In addition, HP's Indigo ws4050 now offer white ElectroInk for use by label printers, especially those in printing healthcare and cosmetic labels. The addition of white gives the customer many options because the press operators can choose which order the inks will be deposited onto the substrate, HP reports.
