Webcom Upgrades to HP T360
Toronto-based Webcom has upgraded its HP T350 inkjet press to the T360, which will see its capacity for book printing increase by 33 percent.
“An increasing number of our customers are turning to inkjet printing through our BookFWD program for its flexibility and short-run cost efficiencies,” said Webcom President and CEO, Mike Collinge.
Webcom installed its first T-Series press in the Fall of 2010, the first install in Canada. The company added its second machine six months ago as part of its BookFWD Production initiative.
The T360 inkjet press prints at up to 600 feet per minute in colour and 800 feet per minute in monochrome at a web width of up to 30 inches.
“Upgrading to an HP T360 will give us a turbo boost to manage a higher volume fluctuation of black-only text during peak seasons and to achieve a wider range of improved cost efficiency for digital,” said Gabe Preczner, Webcom’s Vice President of Operations. With this investment, the company says its upper end of cost efficient digital printing will now reach to run sizes in the range of 4,000 to 5,000.
