The latest digital presses from the industry leader will be the highlight of the show when they appear at the Sydney exhibition next week.

They are expected to draw a large number of visitors from throughout Asia Pacific as well as locals keen to take advantage of the first opportunity to see the new engines in action in the region.

The presses are presented with new digital front ends and other value-add products, such as new light cyan/light magenta inks and an expanded media selection, which are all designed to bring industry-leading offset-quality HP Indigo digital print technology to an even wider range of businesses.

The HP Indigo presses are targeted at key growing markets such as marketing collateral, direct mail, photo merchandise and book and manual publishing. Each of the presses feature the offset look and feel afforded by HP Indigo technology and liquid HP ElectroInk.

The new HP Indigo presses will be joined by another groundbreaking piece of equipment on the Currie Group’s stand.
