HP Inc. today announced a new opportunity to acquire HP Indigo digital printing technology that will enable print service providers of all sizes to deliver highly productive, versatile digital printing with significant capital expenditure (capex) savings, said a press release.
“The newly launched HP Indigo Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) program, starting with B2 HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press units, offers previously owned presses at a more accessible price point. The presses are certified and resold after undergoing a rigorous renewal process to ensure they give the benefits of HP Indigo quality and advanced applications along with reliable production.
“This program includes a portfolio of previously owned HP Indigo digital presses for commercial printing, labels, and packaging, including the HP Indigo 10000, HP Indigo 12000, HP Indigo 7000, and narrow-web 6000 series.
“Woods Printing Company, a traditional offset printer in the US, chose the pre-owned HP Indigo 10000 solution to begin its transition to digital printing.
HP Indigo CPO renewal process
“A strict approval process ensures HP Indigo digital press quality and reliability for CPO units. Digital presses are carefully selected and inspected as candidates for renewal based on press age, print volume, and condition to undergo the CPO program renewal process, which includes:
- Replacement of dozens of parts, upgrading to the latest hardware to ensure uncompromised digital print quality and reliability.
- New software configurations including the latest digital front end (DFE) to drive variable data and PrintOSX connectivity, opening an opportunity for the world of productivity and new application development.
- A six-month warranty.
“Additionally, to reduce the impact of printing on the environment, the CPO program enables HP Indigo and its customers to engage in a circular economy by taking back previously owned Indigo presses and installing them at new customer sites.
“The HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press is now available under the CPO program in selected regions. Additional presses are expected to be available later this year, including the B2 HP Indigo 12000 and HP Indigo 7000 series commercial presses and narrow-web HP Indigo 6000 series labels presses.”
“Now is the time to plant the seeds for growth and invest in solutions that can capture opportunities for high-value work that will secure a profitable future,” said Haim Levit, general manager, HP Indigo. “This is why we are now introducing the HP Indigo CPO program, expanding investment options for print service providers to join the world of HP Indigo and access unique growth opportunities using the benefits of HP Indigo LEP technology.”
“HP’s pre-owned program allowed us, a smaller offset printer, to bring in the same HP Indigo digital-offset technology with a lower financial investment that was less prohibitive and more suitable to the size of our business, but still enabled us to provide our customers the advantages of HP Indigo digital printing technology,” said Brian Craig, president, Woods Printing. “We have really seen growth in our high-end, short-run projects. Like most printers, we were seeing a switch to shorter run, higher frequency jobs. This press has helped us meet and exceed the needs of our customers more efficiently and with higher profitability.”
