Digital Firepower increased with second SRA2 HP Indigo and New Stitching Kit
The tail end of 2018 saw us finish up the year with some additions to increase our digital firepower. We had been looking to increase our capacity within our digital department for a while, and after careful consideration we decided to invest in a second HP Indigo 7 colour SRA2 press to compliment our existing Indigo, this model (an HP Indigo 7800, the original being a 7600) was installed and commissioned in November 2018. Our digital press-room had originally been designed with running two machines in mind, so disruption was kept to a minimum with the original machine continuing to operate virtually throughout the install. Having upped our printing capacity, we needed to look at our finishing workflow as well, the decision was made to purchase a Morgana Documaster Pro saddle-stitcher (with square backing) to compliment our existing Documaster.
These purchases rounded off the years investments which also included our web to print platform, and our new Fold Stitch Trim line which had been installed earlier in the year.
Whilst no hard and fast plans have been put into place for 2019, the printing industry is a fast moving environment, so who knows what is around the corner?
