HP has billed its new PageWide T1190 press as a flagship machine, running at speeds of up to 1,000 linear feet per minute in six-colour mode

The flagship PageWide T1190 offer 67 percent more throughput productivity than the current PageWide T1100S, delivering up to 1,000 linear feet per minute in six-colour mode at full speed. The PageWide T1170 boasts a top speed of 600 linear feet per minute in six-colour.

Both of the new machines print at the same speed in four-colour mode and are able to handle coated and uncoated media from sizes 80gsm to 350gsm. In addition, HP Multi-lane Print Architecture (MLPA) helps boost plant productivity by splitting the web into multiple print lanes, so different jobs, with different box sizes and run lengths, can be printed in the individual lanes.

Eric Wiesner, general manager for the PageWide industrial division at HP, says: “We are proud to deliver field upgrades to the PageWide T1100 Press Series just two years after installing the first press with DS Smith Packaging.

HP’s unique digital pre-print technology continues to disrupt the corrugated package market, driving greater business efficiency for converters and their brands

“HP’s unique digital pre-print technology continues to disrupt the corrugated package market, driving greater business efficiency for converters and their brands.”

Italian company Ghelfi Ondulati installed a PageWide T1100S in the summer of 2016 and is now upgrading to the new PageWide T1170.

Luca Simoncini, digital program manager at Ghelfi Ondulati, explains the main reasons behind the decision: “The new six-colour capability of the PageWide T1170 Press will allow us to address a broader colour gamut to help meet the rigorous colour demands of southern Europe’s leading brands.”
