CSI, a full-service commercial print provider, chose an HP
Indigo 12000 Digital Press to upgrade its operations, with the new technology replacing older offset and digital units.
Streamlining its print facility with the HP Indigo 12000 press, the Alexandria, VA-based CSI replaced one half-sized offset press and three smaller-format digital presses.
“We have gained a new level of efficiency with the larger digital sheet size and are utilizing many of the PrintOS app capabilities to provide data and enable close monitoring of print operations,” said Rob Harris, COO at CSI. “Less back-and-forth communication is needed between the press operators and management. We are also seeing that most problems are immediately made evident through the analytical data that is pushed through every day.”
CSI is using the HP Indigo press for a variety of commercial printing applications, including perfect bound book printing and variable content.
The 29-inch format HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press offers production speeds of up to 4,600 20 x 29-inch sheets per hour.
“We are passing on this benefit to our clients with the availability to offer shorter runs with impactful versioning, thereby reducing the amount of unused marketing collateral,” said Harris.
Advanced color capabilities include up to 7 ink stations and special inks such as HP Indigo ElectroInk White and fluorescents.
CSI provides a wide range of services from offset printing to super-wide grand format printing. CSI was established in 1976 as a conventional typesetting house before migrating from a prepress service bureau to the full-service digital print provider.
