Great Northern Corporation Bolsters Digital Offering with New HP PageWide T400S Press

image002Great Northern Corporation (GNC), one of the largest independent producers of corrugated packaging, folding cartons and in-store displays in the U.S., has purchased the HP PageWide T400S Press. GNC will leverage this new high-speed inkjet press to produce flexible run lengths tailored to meet customer needs, provide reduced inventories, offer variable graphics and versioning, and satisfy customer lead time requirements, all with enhanced speed-to-market.

Operating five plants across the Midwest, GNC has over 50 years of experience designing, developing and manufacturing corrugated packaging, point-of-purchase displays and folding cartons. The new HP PageWide T400S Press will be installed in the company’s StrataGraph location in Oshkosh, Wis., building on the company’s long history with digital dating back to their 2008 investment in HP Scitex equipment, along with last year’s addition of an HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press.

GNC chose the HP PageWide T400S Press specifically for the StrataGraph facility because the web-based platform is ideal for the plant’s conversion abilities and further advances its folding carton capabilities. The 42-inch print width, industry-leading digital imaging quality, and ability to produce variable graphics at faster turnaround times will allow the company to extend its application range, gain new efficiencies, reduce waste and set-up costs, and increase production, ultimately leading to more cost-effective and efficient production.

“Our current folding carton offering has been limited by the number of product versions we can run, along with the setup and makeready time required. We believe high-speed digital printing will take our folding carton production to the next level, giving us improved capabilities to meet increased customer demand requests,” said Mike Schliesmann, senior vice president, GNC. “We’ve been actively investing in HP digital technology for nearly a decade, and most recently chose the HP PageWide T400S Press because there is just no other comparable solution available on the market today with its combination of web capability, format, speed and print quality. We’re looking forward to continuing our collaboration with HP to implement an integrated packaging portfolio that can match prints across various presses – both offset and digital – to encourage widespread digital acceptance and adoption by brands.”

The HP PageWide T400S Press is also able to provide “box-of-one” capabilities, featuring different content on every box as well as digital watermarks for track-and-trace capabilities and anti-counterfeit control, further adding value for GNC’s customers.

Mediacorp uses uniFLOW to manage print and more

The following appears on By Anuradha Shukla – Mediacorp is experiencing smooth workflow post deploying solution form Canon as these days, maintenance and breakdowns cause little to no hindrance to the workflow at the organisation.
The problem with maintenance is an issue of the past with Canon’s printer as they all work based off uniFLOW, Canon’s document management software.
If one printer is under maintenance, the staff can just go to another printer within the same network and release the print job.
uniFLOW also allows users to use their existing employee cards or their normal corporate login and/or password to release print jobs.

New Xerox Color Printer, MFP Put Big Business Capabilities Within Reach of Small Offices

NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 15, 2016 – Most small business printers and multifunction devices are serviceable, but with limited capabilities and reliability. They’re difficult to set up and don’t deliver what offices need today. But that is about to change. Xerox today introduced the Xerox Phaser® 6510 color printer and Xerox WorkCentre® 6515 color multifunction printer (MFP). Right out of the box, both offer easy setup and high-productivity tools such as two-sided, single-pass scanning. The MFP also features a 5-inch, app-based, tablet-like touchscreen user interface that offers scan preview, editing features, intuitive navigation and the ability to customize workflows. Ample paper capacity of up to 850-sheets and new Super-Fine EA toner deliver the type of performance typically seen in large enterprise environments. “Until now, the options for small business printing have been mostly products with marginal capabilities, limiting the types of jobs small businesses can manage on their own,” s..
