At Print China 2019, UTS purchased two new 29-inch (B2) sized HP Indigo 12000 units to boost digital print capacity at its new facility in Langfang, Hebei Province, China. The addition of the presses makes UTS the biggest HP Indigo B2 factory in China.
“UTS has achieved groundbreaking growth with HP Indigo digital printing technology,” said Zhang Lei, GM, UTS. “The HP Indigo 12000 sheet size is the key to success for UTS, opening the possibility to deliver unique, personalized products without giving up fast turnaround.”
The new fleet of presses has enabled UTS to reach 24/7 production, Lei said.
“It’s fantastic to see UTS growing rapidly in the vibrant Chinese printing market. The new possibilities offered by HP Indigo digital printing are enabling them to produce and automate the production of new, high-value applications that enhance and sustain business,” said Alon Bar-Shany, GM, HP Indigo.
Advanced color capabilities include up to 7 ink stations and special inks such as HP Indigo ElectroInk White and fluorescents.
In 2014, UTS acquired an HP Indigo 5600. An HP Indigo 7800 followed the next year. Eight months later, UTS acquired an HP Indigo 10000. In April 2018, the company installed its first HP Indigo 12000.
At Print China, UTS won an HP Digital Print Excellence Awards 2019 for its production of a restaurant menu.
