The BoxMaker Invests (CONT’D FROM PAGE 36)


“The BoxMaker continues to lead innovation in packag- ing with successive investments in HP digital corrugated printing. Choosing a second HP PageWide C500 press is a vote of confidence and a significant step ahead that will enable The BoxMaker to transform the corrugated market with productive, on-demand printing and capture business in this growing market,” said David Tomer, General Manag- er, Post-Print Corrugated, HP PageWide Industrial. The BoxMaker, an early adopter of HP digital print technology, also operates an HP Scitex 17000 corrugated press and two HP Indigo web presses for labels and fold- ing cartons. The HP PageWide C500 Press is a digital post-print solution that enables corrugated converters to reduce the cost of manufacturing boxes in scaled volume production. It provides offset print quality for a wide range of corrugat- ed packaging applications on both coated and uncoated paper, with water-based inks, for low to high number of sheets. The C500 press brings benefits of digital printing, with no limitation of Minimum-Order-Quantity (MOQ), flex- ibility, accelerated time to market, and reduction of waste and inventory with no need to compromise on print quality.
