CCL invests in 100th HP Indigo press

CCL Industries has installed the world’s first HP Indigo 35K digital press at its CCL Label Healthcare facility in Montreal, Canada, in a move to expand further into the folding carton market. This investment marks the milestone installation of the company’s 100th HP Indigo press.

CCL’s global fleet of HP Indigo digital label presses is running at more than 60 sites worldwide across its CCL Label, CCL Design, Avery, and Checkpoint operations. It spans the breadth of the HP Indigo portfolio, including narrow-web and mid-web labels and packaging presses, as well as the B2 sheetfed HP Indigo 30000 and commercial HP Indigo 12000.

The new B2 sheetfed press for cartons and specialty boards offers high-definition printing, security inks, and variable data printing for track-and-trace technologies and security elements. As a result, the HP Indigo folding carton press can deliver multi-layered brand protection applications on one press, in one pass to serve the health and personal care, plastic card, and high-end folding carton markets.

‘We have collaborated with HP for more than 15 years in the development of digital printing and workflows in the packaging industry, and we are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone with HP Indigo. Its technology continues to be a vital component in our moves to connect digitally with our customers and consumers on a global basis,’ said Geoffrey T. Martin, president, and CEO of CCL Industries.

‘The continued evolution of HP Indigo’s digital print technologies opens new markets, applications, and possibilities for our customers. We are incredibly pleased for CLL to reach their 100th HP Indigo press operating in their global network,’ said Haim Levit, general manager, HP Indigo. ‘We are seeing continued market momentum in smart label and packaging solutions with the need for brands to boost production protection.’
