King Printing Co. Inc. has successfully completed the second phase of its expansion on its high-definition digital book manufacturing platform. The first print service provider in North America to adopt the commercialized High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA) technology with the HP PageWide Web Press T240HD, King Printing says it is investing in HDNA across its fleet of colour inkjet presses in a move to help meet the needs of publishers looking to migrate offset level work to the digital arena.
With 2,400 nozzles per square inch, HP PageWide Press HD printing is described as producing smoother colour fills and transitions, increased shadow detail and better skin tones.
“This upgrade has made our high-definition platform one of the most resilient and flexible in the book manufacturing industry by offering a digital option for quality sensitive work,” says Adi Chinai, President of King Printing Co. Inc. “It allows for true offset substitution and will meet the expectations of even the most discerning publishers.”
Established in 1978, King Printing is based in Lowell, Mass., and employs over 120 people. It specializes in print technology and book manufacturing.
The upgrades will also open new markets for King Printing. “We have had a lot of interest in our platform from healthcare, financial services and other commercial sectors,” says Chinai. “Our HDNA capabilities will work extremely well in those arenas from both a quality and cost standpoint.”
