The HP Indigo 30000 working at Parksons’ Daman plant is a uniquely configured press having two online coaters – the Tresu iCoat 30000, which is selective coating solution for digital sheetfed folding carton production. It is 100% modular and designed for integration with the HP Indigo 30000 digital press. Both water-based and UV varnishes can be used for a wide range of application Not many HP Indigo 30000 presses with two coating lines are in operation globally.

“For us such a large player coming in and opting for an HP Indigo technology gives out a strong message to the industry. Parksons is not only creating a new market but they will also see a lot of their unproductive jobs that are being done on their conventional presses move to the Indigo. This will free up capacity on their offset presses, which can then be used to print jobs that are meant for these presses,” said A Appadurai, country manager, Indigo and PageWide Web Press, Graphics Solutions Business, HP India & Sri Lanka at the Onboxing event at Grand Hyatt in Mumbai.

Christian Menegon of HP Indigo said at the event that digital printing provides a lot of flexibility not only for convertors but also for customers. However, he said that many customers are not ready for that flexibility and Parksons will need to work on educating them.

“Parksons will need some ramp-up time with their customers and will need to educate them on how to use this technology. It is a matter of time before brand owners start enjoying this level of flexibility,” Menegon said.
