Webcom upgrading HP T350 digital press
TORONTO—Six months after announcing the addition of an HP T350 digital inkjet press, Webcom has announced an upgrade of the press to an HP T360 that the printer says will increase capacity of book printing by 33%.
 
“An increasing number of our customers are turning to inkjet printing through our BookFWD program for its flexibility and short run cost-efficiencies,” noted Webcom president and chief executive officer, Mike Collinge.


Marc Johnson of HP showed off Webcom's HP T300 inkjet web press in June 2011
 
The HP T350 4-colour inkjet press, which currently reaches a speed of 600 feet per minute (fpm), will be upgraded to a T360 to increase the speed and efficiency to 800 fpm – "significantly faster than the industry norm digital printing of black only text and nearing the speed and quality of offset printing," noted the company.

With this investment, the upper end of cost efficient digital printing will now reach to run sizes in the range of 4,000 to 5,000, added the company.

PrintCAN was previously on location to see Webcom's HP T300, the first in Canada.
