Caps Cases Expansion with HP Digital Printer

capsCaps Cases, a packaging company,  has increased printing efficiency with the new HP digital technology.

The machine is capable of printing at 500sqm per hour in full colour, housed in the company’s new purpose-built digital suite at its Newmarket headquarters.

With the ability to print onto various stocks of corrugated and display board with an array of different finishes, the new printer will enable the company to offer high quality single pass four colour process work.

The investment is designed to reduce lead times on flexographic printing and as there are no print plates involved, there are no additional setup charges.

“The introduction of the new HP digital printer means we can now deliver high quality printed packaging quicker and more efficiently across the UK,” said managing director Trevor Bissett. “The key benefit is the faster turnaround times, but material wastage is also reduced during the production process. We are also able to offer customers printed samples prior to a production run, and late stage customisation of artwork is now an option”
The addition of the brand new digital suite at the Newmarket HQ means that the structural design, production, fulfilment and delivery of orders can all be carried out at one site.

Bissett added: “This is a huge step forward for us and we are excited to be at the forefront of digital printing technology within the corrugated sector. Customers are more than welcome to come and view the digital suite and see the new printer in action.”

Caps Cases is a corrugated packaging business. The company offers several services including, trade, package design, delivery and high-quality print.
