KDM Adds Leading Narrow-Web Digital Printing Press




KDM P.O.P. Solutions Group is pleased to announce that it has added the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press to its already substantial, retail print production operations. This investment will assure maximum efficiency, breakthrough productivity, intelligent color automation, and versatility for a broad range of
applications to drive growth.

The WS6800 is the leading narrow-web printing solution for mainstream labels and packaging production. The press features Inline Priming that offers unmatched versatility in the selection of off-the shelf substrate options that will allow KDM to produce on a wider range of media for the retail industry. The HP Indigo supports flexible print media from 0.5 pt. to 18 pt. thick, such as pressure-sensitive labels, sleeves, paperboard, folding cartons and unsupported films. “The inline priming feature gives us the unique capability to coat our media on the fly which means we can support those last minute jobs easier and quicker than ever,” says Bob Kissel, President & CEO, KDM P.O.P Solutions Group.

Automated color matching and color consistency are achieved with an Inline Spectrophotometer and 7 ink stations (6 colors plus white) that reach up to 97% of Pantone colors. The HP Indigo’s ElectroInk technology is the only digital printing process that matches gravure printing. All color separations are laid down at the same time, in one single pass, for perfect registration. “For our customers, the inline color matching and correcting feature means we are able to hit the right brand color from the first label to the last label – today, tomorrow and next year,” Mr. Kissel adds.

HP’s advanced VDP (variable data printing) software solutions allow for mass customization on-demand. This may include printing unique elements such as barcodes, text, numbers, photos, security features, and even one-of a kind variable designs. This opens up the creative marketing opportunities for consumer brands and retailers.

Additional breakthrough features of the HP narrow-web press include a larger output print size of 12.5” x 38.5” (doubling HP Indigo’s older models), and significantly higher print production speeds up to 131 linear feet per minute in 4-color mode, and up to 196 linear feet in 1 or 2-color mode.
