Georgia-Pacific, a U.S. integrated packaging solutions provider, recently announced the expansion of its Hummingbird digital print solutions with the purchase of an HP PageWide T1190 Press, the highest-volume digital corrugated packaging solution.
In a move to extend the reach of digital services across the U.S., the new 110-inch wide web press for pre-print corrugated production will be installed later this year at a new Hummingbird site opening in Arizona. The HP T1190 will be the converter’s third inkjet web press installed since 2015 when it launched digital print services with the HP T400S press and subsequently deployed a T1100 110-inch press.
Georgia-Pacific’s Hummingbird provides a range of digitally printed corrugated packaging solutions for consumer-packaged goods, electronics, and food and beverage brands across North America. Hummingbird’s digital offerings include corrugated shelf-ready packaging (SRP), food trays, large-format boxes, e-commerce solutions, and volume displays (POP).
The high-productivity HP PageWide T1190 digital pre-print press is a six-colour (CMYKOV) inkjet press with a 110-inch (2.8 meter) web width that efficiently aligns with corrugator capacity and provides offset print quality, unmatched digital speed, economy, and flexibility. The press uses HP A30 true water-based inks.
With the HP PageWide T1190’s fast throughput of up 305 meters (1000 feet) of corrugated liner per minute, up to 100 million corrugated boxes per year can be delivered.
