HP has announced that it’s reached a corporate milestone – by selling its 1,000th HP Indigo Series 4 Press to Ryan Printing in New York – thus continuing the growing customer momentum for its 29-inch (B2) platform across commercial, labels and packaging digital print applications. “Supplying 1,000 presses to customers in 65 countries is an exciting milestone,” said Alon Bar-Shany, General Manager of HP Indigo. “The introduction of the HP Indigo B2 platform at drupa 2012 set the stage for a massive disruption in printing, prompting print service providers to re-evaluate their businesses. Today, adopters of HP Indigo technologies are enjoying double-digit growth thanks to their relentless drive to innovate and print differently.”

Ryan Printing was recognized as the 1,000th worldwide installation of an HP Indigo Series 4 press with its purchase of an HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press. “The Indigo 12000 HD will be a perfect fit for our longer and large-size digital runs and our shorter traditional offset jobs, and will help enable us to open up new markets and capabilities,” said Al Ryan, Owner and General Manager, whose new press will expand production alongside its current HP Indigo 7800. More specifically, the HP Indigo 12000 HD Press has reached 50 installations worldwide.

The OEM’s 29-inch-wide Series 4 Press platform also includes the oversized B1 HP Indigo 50000 for commercial and photo printing, HP Indigo 20000 for labels and flexible packaging, and HP Indigo 30000 for folding cartons. HP Indigo’s narrow-web Series 3 labels and packaging presses, including the HP Indigo 8000 and HP Indigo 6000 Series, have reached 1,500 installed units worldwide.

Recent HP Indigo labels and packaging momentum also includes:

  • Continued adoption of the highly productive HP Indigo 8000 Digital Press
  • The Pack Ready Laminator by Karlville
  • Rootree’s launch of a 100% compostable packaging solution based on the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press
  • Flexible packaging converters installing large fleets of HP Indigo 20000 digital presses in several regions
