Webcom adding second HP colour inkjet web press
TORONTO—Webcom is doubling its inkjet capacity with an $8 million investment, it announced today.

The latest investment is an HP T350 Colour Inkjet Web Press to complement the HP T300 installed just over a year ago. PrintCAN was on hand during a Webcom open house at that time to see the first HP addition for the printer's BookFWD program.




Included in Webcom’s $8 million investment in 2012 is a "significant upgrading of hardware and software" said the company. The total capital investment by Webcom in the last 18 months is $20 million, according to the company. Webcom had previously installed an HP Indigo 7000 and invested in the Magnum Flexbook system and new bindery lines.

Webcom said the addition will more than double digital inkjet capacity to two billion pages annually, while "Webcom’s Toronto plant now stands as the second largest book production capacity for digital inkjet printing in North America." 

The HP T350 inkjet press is a four colour, wide width, 600 feet per minute inkjet press "capable of producing over 8 million customized books annually," noted Webcom, which expects the press to be in full production by March.
