The HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press is a mid-web solution with a speed and imposition capability that make it highly productive and cost-effective for digital labels and flexible packaging. Its 29-inch image width captures the vast majority of flexible packaging, pressure-sensitive label, shrink sleeve, wrap-around label, and in-mold labeling (IML) applications. It can print on substrates from 0.4 point to 10 point and produce up to 135 linear feet per minute in full colour. Converters can meet strict brand colour needs using seven ink stations and a colour gamut that reaches up to 97% of Pantone colors. HP Indigo’s ElectroInk Premium White ink offers high-opacity white for heavy usage in a one-pass process.
