Oct 17, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
HP has added Esko's Kongsberg XP Auto digital cutting table to the portfolio of Esko products at its demonstration center in Barcelona, Spain.
This fully-automated, corrugated cutting machine for POS and short run production of packaging will run alongside HP's latest portfolio addition, the HP Scitex FB10000 Industrial Press.
"HP and Esko have a long-standing partnership that started nearly ten years ago. Today, Esko products are paired with HP presses in demo centers around the world. Both Esko and HP believe it's vital to show printers how much stronger solutions become when industry leaders join forces," comments Stuart Fox, Business Development Manager at Esko.
"By giving them real-time production demonstrations, they can get a better understanding of how to take their jobs from print to finished product. Seeing the whole process lets them experience the impact this investment could have on their business today and in the future. This type of experience has become a critical part of the buying process, and is made possible because of our relationship HP."
Agustin Comadran, EMEA Sign & Display Category Manager, HP Graphics Solutions Business, comments: "The successful relationship between Esko and HP enables us to develop solutions that effectively address today's market challenges, and gives customers a first hand look at how they can meet those challenges. HP has confidence in Esko's solutions. Together, we can ensure our customers are as productive and profitable as they can be."
The HP Scitex FB10000 is a large-format, flatbed inkjet printer that can run at up to 625 m/hr, or 1,000 B1 sheets in less than two hours. Its speed lets printers improve productivity, while still achieving the quality they need. The Kongsberg XP Auto is a fully automated die-less finishing machine for packaging and point-of-purchase displays.
To fully demonstrate the impact this solution can bring to users, the HP Demo Centre also utilizes Esko software to support the Kongsberg XP Auto, including Esko Automation Engine, ArtiosCAD, and i-cut Suite. These join other Esko products that have been chosen to support HP's array of print production solutions.
