Imprimerie Héon Installs HP 5500
Imprimerie Héon & Nadeau, a second-generation printing company based in Victoriaville, Quebec, adds a new HP Indigo 5500 press to its traditional offset-focused production.
Imprimerie Héon has been in business since 1938 and now focuses primarily on commercial printing and the publishing of books and textbooks. The company’s production floor, driven by a full prepress division called VICOM Graphique, primarily revolves around a 28-inch, 5-colour Komori Lithrone press, as well as offset machines from Sakurai and Roland, among others.
“We wanted the new printer to offer speed of execution, product compliance and high quality standards, which the HP Indigo 5500 offers in addition to a great price-quality ratio,” said Jean-François Poulin, General Manager of Imprimerie Héon.
The HP Indigo 5500 is rated to run at 272 pages per minute in monochrome mode, while reaching 4-colour speeds of up to 68 pages per minute. The resolution of the press can hit up to 2,400 x 2,400 dpi on a 12.48 x 17.7 inch imaging area.
