Hewlett-Packard’s Graphics Arts Division demonstrated its ongoing commitment to digital printing for packaging with two major events in Eastern Europe. The first event, the worldwide premiere of a printing and finishing solution developed and integrated by Kama and HP Indigo in Israel, was covered in InfoTrends’ blog on November 24. This blog covers the demonstration of the HP T400 at the Obaly Morava open house. The T400 is a high-speed inkjet press for the full color printing of liner stock that is later laminated to corrugated board and then converted into packaging and displays.

Obaly Morava (Otrokovice, Czech Republic) is a privately-held manufacturer of corrugated cardboard and packaging. The company manufactures corrugated packaging using three- and five-layer cardboard to create various configurations, including tuck-in flap boxes and specialized packaging. Obaly Morava’s equipment list includes the finishing elements needed to manufacture packaging (e.g., die-cutting, folding, gluing, sewing), equipment for various print processes (e.g., rotary screen and flexo printing for up to 5 colors), and now CMYK (with HP’s T400 inkjet press).
