Today at drupa 2016, HP announced that Cimpress, the world leader in mass customization, and HP Indigo’s largest customer globally(1), agreed to purchase a fleet of the larger format next generation HP Indigo presses (circa 20, of which more than half will be installed in the second half of 2016) that are being shown at drupa. With the purchase of these presses, Cimpress aims to increase efficiency, bolster production capacity and enhance the production quality of products it produces for its customers. Installation of the new presses will start in July 2016 at Cimpress manufacturing facilities in the Netherlands, Canada and Italy. Building on a decade-long relationship with HP, Cimpress is also upgrading its existing fleet of HP Indigo Digital Presses to incorporate HP’s latest capabilities. This portfolio update will enhance the productivity and application range of its existing fleet and ensure Cimpress delivers consistent print quality across its presses and locations.
Heidelberg continues to enhance its SystemService portfolio with performance services that improve production processes and the personnel who operate equipment.
