Italian print firm Elcograf has recently invested in two HP PageWide T490 printing systems in its Cles plant, in a bid to strengthen its presence throughout Italy and further afield in Europe.

Elcograph has recently installed two new HP PageWide T490 printing systems in its Cles, Italy plant

The result of the merger of Mondadori Printing and Pozzoni Printing, Elcograf offers a range of products from limited print runs to high-volume print runs, with a large number of copies in a limited period of time as a result of in-line printing.

The HP PageWide T490 printing system offers quick printing speed, improved productivity and top-quality results, with clear text and a high optical density of black. Due to its flexibility, the machine meets the needs of companies considering the replacement of an existing offset system.

Following the installations, Elcograf, which employs over 2000 employees in its ten plants across Italy, plans to cover print runs from 500 to 500,000 copies, managing different jobs without stopping its machines as changes are made.

With previous machines, we were getting a high quality of product but wanted more in terms of speed

The new printing system will allow the company to efficiently satisfy the demand of a market characterised by low print runs, increasingly low stocks, and the possibility of ordering more reprints during the year.

Domenico Fasoli, plant manager at Elcograf says: “With previous machines, we were getting a high quality of product but wanted more in terms of speed. The HP system is incredibly easy to use and the transition has been smooth, thanks to the support we received from HP every step of the way.

“This is more than a simple deal: it is the beginning of a partnership which, I am sure, will help us improve our business.”
