Team Install New B2 Digital Indigo Press
Team are delighted to announce the acquisition and successful installation of the latest B2 HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press.
This is the first press of its type in the north of England, providing Team with an unrivalled offering. The press can print up to an impressive sheet size of 530 x 750mm and has the maximum available inking units of 7 colours. It is capable of achieving an accurate match to 90% of all standard PMS colours. We will be producing a colour guide book to help and assist designers when setting up artwork for spot colours.The opportunities for this press are vast, offering many short run print solutions for designers, marketeers and print buyers alike – especially when combined with our in-house finishing facilities (die cutting, foil blocking, embossing and debossing, PUR binding, laminating, spot UV varnishing, saddle stitching, case binding and mounting).
This makes this new press ideal for printing brochures, posters, mailers, folders, case bound books, greetings cards, boxes and presentation packaging – on paper weights from 100-400gsm.
All of these formats can also be produced with an element of personalised and variable data. Because of the nature of the machine, every copy is printed directly from a digital file meaning that the content can vary from sheet to sheet in any possible way, whether that be text, colour or totally different imagery. Before making a significant investment (in the region of £1m), Managing Director Peter Crowson ensured that all the correct processes were undertaken at Team to accommodate the new press. A new digital print unit was built in the factory to very detailed specifications for humidity, temperature, lighting and cleanliness. This area will also be the location for our other digital equipment including the HP Indigo 5500 and the Acuity Large Format Press. To compliment this additional print resource we have also installed a PUR binding line and Morgana specialist finishing equipment.
Due to the small number of these machines in the UK, our digital print technicians were required to complete a two week training programme at HP in Barcelona. The installation of the press at Team has been a four week process, and with this now completed we are looking forward to producing some ground-breaking print work utilising this fantastic new facility.
