HP Australia and Currie Group have today announced that leading trade printer, CMYKhub, is the first customer to install the HP Indigo 100K Digital Press in the Asia Pacific region. The installation continues CMYKhub’s longstanding partnership with HP and Currie Group and cements HP Indigo at the forefront of print innovation in the region.
“The HP Indigo 100K is our most productive digital B2 solution yet. It was engineered with offset users in mind, with striking print quality that matches offset look-and-feel while offering significantly higher productivity with up to 6000 sheets per hour. At HP, we’re incredibly proud to see the first HP Indigo 100K in Asia Pacific installed here in Australia at CMYKhub. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the team at CMYKhub, and through our partner Currie Group, in supporting their business growth”, said Craig Walmsley, Country Manager HP Personalisation & Industrial Business South Pacific.
For CMYKhub, the installation of the HP Indigo 100K is a significant milestone in their business restructure aimed at bringing their business closer to their customers and production of high value applications. The new digital press will also help deliver orders faster to customer and open new profit-making opportunities for business.
“At CMYKhub, we value our strong relationship with HP and Currie Group. Starting when Bernie Robinson from Currie Group first suggested this machine through to the installation, it’s been a quick and smooth transition for our team. The HP Indigo 100K was a no-brainer for us because of the increased productivity and superior quality, and we’re excited to share more details about the HP Indigo 100K with our resellers and customers in the near future,” said Dayne Nankervis, chief operating officer at CMYKhub.
“The strength in the relationship and leadership in technology has delivered a strong and sustainable business model, and we look forward to seeing this next phase for CMYKhub with the 100K at the forefront,” said Bernie Robinson, Managing Director at Currie Group.
“Since we first saw the 100K in development, we were genuinely very impressed with the advances HP Indigo had made in automation and productivity, and how this would translate into real benefits. We are excited that CMYKhub will be enabling the 100K to deliver these benefits to their business and their customers,” added Phillip Rennell, Sales and Marketing Director at Currie Group.
Designed to rewrite the rules of profitability
The first HP Indigo Series 5 Digital Press from the HP Personalisation and Industrialisation Business, the HP Indigo 100K is designed for offset players to transition more work to digital and boost sustainability with on-demand printing. The commercial sheetfed press can do nonstop printing of tens of thousands of B2 duplex sheets every day.
Designed to fit into the circular economy, the HP Indigo 100K Digital Press delivers low environmental impact printing with maximum productivity, and offers advanced paper handling and offset-like gripper-to-gripper design for precision registration, as well as unique HP Indigo digital advantages, including colour automation, calibration, fast switchover between jobs and media and five-input source feeder.
Delivering up to 6000 sheets per hour, the HP Indigo 100K four-colour digital press boosts margins on short-run digital production and introduces new calculations that confirm a lower total cost of ownership.
The new digital press from HP also uses HP Indigo ElectroInks that bring the widest on-press colour gamut, giving CMYKhub the opportunity to meet exacting customer requirements and achieve profitable growth.
Made for the sustainable way you work
Through workflow solutions like HP PrintOS, a print production operating system with web and mobile apps, CMYKhub will also be able to easily manage customers’ jobs from submission to shipment while simplifying and automating production.
As part of the HP Indigo ecosystem, CMYKhub will also be able to increase productivity and streamline production flow with finishing partners’ solutions to produce high-value applications such as personalised marketing collateral, photobooks, and sophisticated direct mail.
With their new HP digital press, CMYKhub can solve customers’ needs with the industry’s widest range of certified media compatibility, delivering new opportunities to print on dark, transparent and recycled paper, as well as other environmentally accredited substrates, synthetics and paperboard.
