Being a leader in the industrial digital printing market, HP Indigo provides its industrial customers with a comprehensive value proposition to enable a smooth transfer from the conventional to the digital presses. Our revolutionary HP Indigo ws4500 digital web press makes extensive use of all 7 color stations (4 for process colors and 3 for special colors including white). This helps our customers capture the short run and the variable print market of the traditional offset and Flexo, while providing similar look and feel. HP Indigo white ink serves as an excellent backing color and enables printing on a broad range of colored, dark, metalized or transparent substrates. With HP white ink, a silky, smooth, professional appearance to labels, shrink sleeve and flexible packaging is obtained.

In this paper we will show how the white ink, in particular, supports the industrial portfolio of HP-Indigo. We will cover the basic white ink performance requirements and demonstrate the flexibility of using the white ink in the HP-Indigo digital industrial press for direct printing, reverse printing and even printing two sides of an image on a single side of a media. We will show that applications printed with conventional flexography process implementing white ink can be reproduced easily by the digital printing process, being a driving factor in the growth of digital printing industrial market.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
