Hemlock Installs Second Indigo Press
Hemlock Printers of Burnaby, British Columbia, added an HP Indigo 7500 press to its production floor, which will continue to hold the company’s previously installed HP Indigo 5000 press.
“Over the past five years, the demand for our digital print services has steadily grown, thanks to our great team and the incredible quality from the HP Indigo press,” said Richard Kouwenhoven, Hemlock’s VP of Customer Service and Business Development. “With the addition of our second Indigo press, we have technical advantages like thicker substrates and white ink; but equally important is our ability to produce higher volumes of small orders and data-intensive variable projects with a higher degree of automation.”
Allowing Hemlock to expand its substrate range from the earlier HP press, the Indigo 7500 works with basis weights from 60 to 180 pounds and up to 21 points in thickness. According to Hemlock, this new substrate range also allows the environmentally progressive company – running a 100% carbon neutral facility in Burnaby – to employ its green house stocks, as well as work with textured finishes, translucent vinyl and metalized finishes.
