HP launched its Indigo 7eco digital press at Pamex 2020 at the BEC in Mumbai. The new Indigo digital press is powered by what the company calls, ‘Indigo LEP (liquid electrography) Technology.’ A Appadurai of HP India says, “With the launch of sustainable technology in the printing industry, HP aims to introduce consumers to the latest innovations enabling them to increase their production at an affordable cost, with less power consumption, manpower, production time and wastage. Introducing advanced digital capabilities are a part of HP’s commitment to provide the best solutions to help businesses in staying ahead of the curve.”

The HP Indigo 7eco digital press can print up to 160 color pages a minute in its Enhanced Productivity Mode (EPM), which has the potential to simulate 4-color process printing using only three separations and inks – cyan, magenta and yellow. The use of 3-color separations increases color printing productivity (ostensibly the speed of the machine) by 33%, while the EPM printing consumes 25% less energy (and ostensibly one less ink) per printed page, further enhancing the sustainability of the press.
The access of the device to a comprehensive suite of software applications through the HP PrintOS secured cloud platform helps in increasing efficiency, automation and monitoring giving control over print operations. The color automation feature is said to comply with the toughest industry color standards, while saving time and costs with fewer color adjustments and reprints.
The technology is backed by the unique combination of HP Indigo ElectroInk, thermal offset transfer and direct contact transfer which gives high-quality color, wide media and application versatility including high coverage printing, and the highest speeds for quality print applications.
