Tresu is to supply an inline coating system for the new HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press. The Danish company’s iCoat 30000 coater is said to deliver offset quality output using industry standard UV or water-based varnish.
"The deal with HP reinforces the digital print process as a competitive solution for short run folding carton packaging with higher shelf-appeal in smaller volumes," says Tresu Group COO Søren Maarssø. "Converters will be able to complement the productivity and outstanding quality offered by HP’s digital technology with the ability to create a host of value-added coating solutions in a single production pass."
The iCoat 30000 coater is equipped with quick changeover mechanisms for sleeves and plates that reduce setup time, allowing a large number of different jobs per shift. It will be publicly demonstrated on HP’s stand at Labelexpo Europe in September.
The first units of both the HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press and Tresu iCoat 30000 are due to be installed at customer sites by the end of 2013.
