R.R. Donnelley & Sons to Deploy HP Indigo Presses
HP Inc. reported today that R.R. Donnelley & Sons (RRD) Company, a global provider of multi-channel business-communications services and marketing solutions, is expanding its digital-printing footprint with a strategic investment in HP Indigo 12000HD Digital Presses across its nationwide network of commercial-printing facilities.
The addition of six HP Indigo 12000HD Digital Presses – the first units purchased in the United States – is designed to enhance RRD’s ability to deliver high-quality print products for its customers. The installations will be completed this summer, and will provide the RRD organization and its more than 50,000 customers with direct access to the HP Indigo 12000HD.
According to HP, the HP Indigo 12000HD Digital Press supports the widest range of commercial print applications in the industry, printing on virtually any substrate up to 29″ wide, and with variable-data printing and high-definition image printing. The HP Indigo HD Imaging System, a new high-definition writing head solution, is said to double print resolution and uses high screen sets up to 290 LPI (lines per inch) for the smoothest photo and high-end commercial print, including art gallery-quality pieces with extensively detailed reproduction specifications.
HP Indigo B2 commercial-printing technology is said to provide digital printing for virtually any commercial application, printing with unique inks and on specialty media.
More than 800 HP Indigo 29-inch format systems have been installed worldwide.
Dave Prezzano, vice president and general manager of HP Inc.’s Graphics Solutions Business, Americas, commented: “HP Indigo technology is playing an important part in the growing transformation of the print industry from analog to digital printing, offering a more profitable and sustainable solution in addition to enabling brands to more effectively communicate with consumers. HP is a longtime technology provider in RRD’s multi-channel transformation, and is both excited and honored to play an integral role in RRD’s journey for years to come.”
“RRD is committed to leading the way in print technology innovation and continuously meeting the dynamic needs of our customers,” said Craig Roberton, group vice president of Commercial Print at RRD. “The HP Indigo 12000 HD Digital Press’ cutting-edge technology substantially broadens the creative possibilities for our clients to efficiently produce breakthrough print communications at scale that strengthen the impact of their brand messaging.”
