Reinforcing its position as the only vendor with end to end solutions in the graphic arts space HP will show a broad range of digital print solutions at PacPrint09.
These will include the HP Designjet L65500 printer with HP Latex Ink Technologies, the HP Designjet Z6100 series printer, the newly released HP Scitex XP2750 3.2m UV printer and the two latest HP Indigo presses – the HP Indigo 7000 and the industrial HP Indigo ws6000.
Shane Lucas, Director, Graphic Arts South Pacific says HP’s reseller partners including Anitech, Celmac, Cielab, CPI, Currie Group, DES, GBC and Starleaton will provide visitors to the show with access to the most comprehensive display of HP digital print solutions under the one roof.
“PacPrint is an exciting event for those keen to explore the opportunities in digital print,” says Lucas. “Digital print is thriving despite the downturn in the analogue print market. The main drivers for this are that digital print is fast, price competitive and flexible in volume and design. The HP digital print solutions are backed by HP’s expertise, our commitment to research and development and our proven track record in delivering high quality, fully supported products.”
“If you are looking for a digital print workflow for your business HP has a solution to suit you,” Lucas concluded.

The HP Indigo 7000 Digital Press delivers fast production speed of 120 four-colour A4 (letter size) pages per minute with offset and photo quality. It is optimised to print large numbers of static jobs with run lengths ranging from one copy into the thousands, as well as variable-data work requiring the “every page is different” capabilities of digital.
Designed for meeting even the tightest deadlines, the press is equipped with the innovative HP Indigo Print Care toolset. On-press and off-press diagnostics and troubleshooting tools maximise uptime and facilitate continuous printing.
The HP Indigo 7000 Digital Press is gentle to the environment with on-press oil recycling, lower electricity consumption per printed page, long consumables life resulting in reduced waste, ability to print on recycled paper, elimination of make-ready waste (as compared to conventional) and ability to print the precise quantity required.
