King Printing has become the first North American book manufacturer to install a new HP T350 Color Inkjet Web Press speed upgrade.

The high reliability, productivity and quality that the short-run book manufacturing specialist based in Lowell, MA, gained with its HP T300 Color Inkjet Web Press led to the upgrade decision. Now, King Printing’s HP T350 Inkjet Web Press is 50 percent faster than its previousl, running at 600 fpm and producing up to 3,927 ppm (letter-size).

Palo Alto, Calif.-based HP has announced a partnership with U.K.-based Timsons, the world's largest book press manufacturer, to develop a digital inkjet system for short- and medium-run book production. According to HP, the new solution will be designed "to take digital book production beyond niche applications to mainstream production."
