Orlando-Florida-based Labels in Motion, a label converter that serves as an in-plant facility for its nutraceutical parent company XYMOGEN®, installed an HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press to provide its customers more application options, reduce consumables costs, and capitalize on HP Indigo’s high print quality, simple color management and comprehensive post-sale support.
Specializing in vitamins, supplements and medicine labels, Labels in Motion was tasked with producing single-serving supplement packets for XYMOGEN®, but its previous, competitive digital printing technology could not handle the substrate needed to produce the supplement packets. Labels in Motion selected the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press for the job because it supports a wide range of standard, off-the-shelf substrates with in-line priming as well as pre-treated materials and offers up to seven ink stations for a wide color gamut.
“With the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press, our company is now producing high-quality, single-serve supplement packets in a timely, cost effective manner using packaging materials that are approved for food safety,” said Steve Kirchof, vice president of sales and operations manager, Labels in Motion. “We considered other options, but the speed of the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press combined with the price and the ability to do one-offs for our supplements was a very enticing combination for us.”
Offering high productivity at speeds up to 196 feet per minute, the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press will enable Labels in Motion to deliver faster turnarounds with unmatched production efficiency. The company will also be able to enter new markets and grow its business with its existing cosmetic, bath and body label customers as well as its food, beverage and specialty label customers, providing unique flexible packaging and folding cartons applications in addition to labels and sleeves.
