German-based All4Labels Global Packaging Group, specialists in labels, adhesive labels, security labels, packaging films, RFID labels and more, has installed the newly announced HP Indigo DFE (Digital Front End): HP Production Pro for Indigo Labels & Packaging. Installed to support the production of all applications, with a focus on short runs and VDP jobs, All4Labels is able to increase the HP Indigo press utilization via faster job processing RIP, optimize their fleet management via a single point of control, and connectivity of the site to automation tools such as Esko Automation Engine and HP PrintOS.
“All4Labels is a fast-growing company that needs the ability to easily control its production,” said Michel Koch, Digital Prepress Manager in All4Labels Global Packaging Group. “HP Production Pro for Indigo Labels & Packaging delivers exactly this capability. When searching for a new DFE, we considered market trends, such as the increase in complex VDP jobs, SKU proliferation and short-term orders to name a few.”
All4Labels installed the HP Production Pro for Indigo Labels & Packaging in April of this year and according to Koch the company has already seen benefits including significantly faster RIP time, better connectivity with HP modules, less server-management and a smoother workflow integration.
Announced at Labelexpo Europe 2017, HP Production Pro for Indigo Labels & Packaging delivers higher productivity, scalability and simplicity for any job, including handling large volumes of variable data printing. This new DFE enables converters for the first time to scale their business, and centrally manage fleets of HP Indigo label presses, while connecting the press to automation tools including HP PrintOS, MIS systems and the Esko Automation Engine QuickStart for Labels.
