CTPS Adopts Digital Technology with HP Inkjet Web and Indigo Presses
(Press Release) PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 25, 2011 - HP today announced that CTPS, a major book manufacturing exporter based in Hong Kong, has purchased an HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press for high-volume book production work currently done on offset presses.
The T300 - one of several recent regional HP Inkjet Web Press sales - will be the first HP Inkjet Web Press in Asia when installation is completed later this year at CTPS's book manufacturing plant in Dongguan, China.
CTPS also is installing an HP Indigo 7500 Digital Press, HP's top-of-the-line Indigo commercial sheet-fed press. The HP Indigo 7500's automation and print-quality features make it ideally suited to replace small and midsize analog offset presses for high-value applications. CTPS will use the HP Indigo press to produce covers for HP T300-printed books. Reaching a new milestone with HP
"We are very confident with our choice of the HP T300, moving our printing capabilities to a new milestone, a new century. We chose HP because its successful installations in other parts of the world have built our confidence in the purchase," said Peter Tse, CEO, CTPS.
With the upcoming installation, CTPS is poised to solidify its position as a market leader in the region. The HP digital presses can enable CTPS to streamline business operations and lower production costs by reducing waste and inventory expenses associated with print overruns.
"HP's portfolio of solutions, including our HP T300 and the recently launched HP T200 and T350 Color Inkjet Web presses, and the HP Indigo 7500 and W7200 digital presses, are ready to take on the growth that the China publishing market is experiencing," said Aurelio Maruggi, vice president and general manager, Inkjet High-speed Production Solutions, HP. "We are honored that CTPS chose HP for its publishing industry solution."
