US multinational information technology company HP has introduced the HP One Package workflow suite to enhance the capabilities of PageWide Industrial corrugated presses.

The workflow suite serves as an ecosystem for digital corrugated printing and offers access to software and solutions from HP.

“Whether converters adopt a strategy for digital pre-print or digital post-print, HP One Package provides an integrated set of solutions for end-to-end productivity.”

HP One Package can also be used to enable converters to maximise the flexibility of digital production.

It is designed to streamline submission and preparation of orders, enabling converters to leverage digital value-added possibilities, such as solutions for brands’ consumer engagement and piracy protection using variable data, imagery and unique ID serialisation.

The production management and automation software offered by the suite improves operational performance and optimises the supply chain.

HP PageWide Industrial division general manager Eric Wiesner said: “HP is revolutionising corrugated printing with digital flexibility, offering high-volume productivity, food-safe inks, and now a sophisticated and integrated workflow solution to drive corrugated jobs from order to fulfilment.

“Whether converters adopt a strategy for digital pre-print or digital post-print, HP One Package provides an integrated set of solutions for end-to-end productivity.”

One Package is compatible with third-party workflow solutions, including MIS and pre-press, HP’s print servers, colour management tools, and PrintOS cloud-based management applications.

According to the company, the workflow suite complements its portfolio of corrugated digital presses, adding to the existing HP PageWide C500 press for post-print and HP PageWide T1190 for pre-print.

Using the suite, converters can integrate HP digital presses into existing production and business workflows.

One Package provides HP Production Prime Print Server for the HP PageWide C500 Press, and HP Production Elite Print Server for the HP PageWide T400S and T1100 series presses.

The company noted that the suite also includes automation software for high-volume digital pre-print, built upon HP PrintOS Site Flow, as well as HP PrintOS cloud-based print software platform that allows converters to transform the management of IT, production and business.

Colour management tools and services offered by One Package will enable converters to comply with brand colour standards and optimise colour results in multiple colour modes.
