Labels Plus 35 According to Mark Daws, Currie Group General Manager ANZ - Labels & Packaging Division, the HP Indigo 8000 is “recognised by a huge number of converters as being the fastest label press in the world, as it can achieve incredible speeds of nearly 80mpm. We’ll have the HP Indigo 8000 working, along with an exceptional ABG Digicon Series 3 end-to-end production facility. It is configured with a high level of embellish- ment for wine labels and will be happening in front of visitors, every day.” The HP Indigo 8000 has been designed to handle the most demanding and longest jobs and comes with advanced colour automation and sophisticated colour matching tools, making it faster and easier for a converter to produce brand colour with extreme accuracy, and occurs from the first print to the last. Converters can meet strict brand colour standards via seven ink stations and HP’s superior liquid ElectroInk technology - a colour gamut that reaches up to 97% of PANTONE® colours. Also displayed on the stand, will be HP Indigo’s end-to-end workflow econosystem, including the highly-automated Workflow Suite powered by Esko, and integrated MIS pre-press and converting solutions from partners ABG. Another software package in full use, is the HP PrintOS print production system, which helps printers get more out of their HP Indigo press. “It simplifies and automates production and using PrintOS, allows converters to continually improve their operation and access the open and secure cloud-based PrintOS platform anytime.” Another Currie Group exclusive will be the ABG Omega SRI converting and finishing machine, utilising the latest servo drive technology and combined with a PC/SPS based control and fully-integrated inspection system, to deliver a new sophistication post print, to put converters ahead of their competition. Another huge success story over the past 12 months said Mark, is OMET, with a number of presses sold into the market. “We won’t have a working press on stand, but Currie Group has arranged an opportunity for interested parties to see an OMET press working in Melbourne during the period of the show.” So converters who would like to see first-hand why OMET has been creating such a wave of excitement recently, need only register with Jon Murray or Mark Daws, to be part of one of the visits. Mark said that this PacPrint represented the largest investment in stand, personnel, and working machines for Currie Group and will highlight the strong focus on automation throughout the production process. “Our aim is to show printers how simple it is when you have the right machinery, to have an end-to-end process that can be a real money maker for any converting business.” Currie Group showcase a “first”at PacPrint STAND D10 Visitors at this year’s PacPrint will see for the VERY first time in Australia, the HP Indigo 8000 digital label press, which has been such a hit since its release overseas.
