Major increase in digital capacity gives CPX Printing and Logistics greater room to move.

Management from the Brisbane-based company spent almost 12 months travelling world-wide with Sydney-based, SOS Print and Media, which owns half of the business, looking at the latest technologies and market trends.

According to James Bennett, managing director, one thing was clear from country to country: digital is the direction of the future. “Run lengths are getting smaller all over the world,” he said.

CPX Printing and Logistics is no stranger to digital printing; its existing fleet of technology consists of Kodak, Xerox and Oce presses, but Bennett felt it was time to step up a notch.

“We wanted offset-like digital quality and nothing else could do it except for the Indigos,” he said.

A new HP Indigo 5000 and a second-hand 3050 were installed last month. Both presses are now fully functional and running two shifts.

“Now that they are running, we feel that they have increased our capacity by 400-500 per cent,” Bennett added.

He feels that there is still scope for the machines to add even further improvements to the business.

“We aren’t running at full speed yet,” Bennett said. “We do a lot of varied work, from booklet covers through to short-run offset printing that we have converted over to digital. The presses are basically capable of dealing with everything.”
