HP unveils new press for paper-based packaging

September 26, 2022  By PrintAction Staff

HP launches the HP PageWide T700i Press, a new 67 in. (1.7 m), digital web-fed platform for the production of digital single-face lamination, corrugation, and folding carton applications.

The HP PageWide T700i Press, which is expected to be available for installation in late 2023, will be configurable to meet specific customer and market needs and includes a variety of in-line options for manual or continuous unwinding, priming, varnishing, and delivery in both roll and sheet format. Select configurations will be capable of up to 1,000 ft per minute (300 m/min) supported by HP’s single-pass Thermal Inkjet technology with water-based inks for printing packaging. The new press will feature the next generation HP Thermal Inkjet printheads.

“We listened to the needs of our customers and the market when designing the T700i Press. Now more than ever, converters need greater flexibility to respond to dynamic market trends and challenges, and digital packaging continues to fundamentally transform the packaging supply chain for high-volume and mainstream production,” said Annette Friskopp, global head and general manager, HP PageWide Industrial. “The HP T700i Press enables customers to achieve production cost savings and shorter lead times and enables them to go after higher value print jobs.”


The HP PageWide T700i Press will be the second press format built in collaboration with Koenig & Bauer.

“Koenig & Bauer is one of the world’s leading traditional press manufacturers, with over 200 years of experience in press engineering and developing innovative solutions that meet customers’ quality expectations,” said Christoph Müller, Koenig & Bauer executive board member. “Together with HP’s leadership and innovation in the field of thermal inkjet technology, the HP PageWide T700i Press was developed to once again combine our complementary technological strengths to provide packaging converters with unprecedented flexibility and quality consistency.”
