HP PageWide T1100S Enables Corrugated Customers to Think “Outside the Box”

Some called drupa 2016 the “Corrugated drupa” and from the perspective of HP PageWide high-speed inkjet, it does reflect feedback we received regarding our advanced corrugated print solutions. Purchases for the HP PageWide T1100S Press show not only the demand for advanced corrugated printing solutions, but also the confidence of our customers in HP’s innovation and ability to execute. That is why we are so excited about the recently announced deals with leading European corrugated converters Christiansen Print (Thimm Group) and Ghelfi.


Christiansen Print of Ilsenburg, Germany is part of the Thimm Group and a leader in the corrugated pre-print industry, while Ghefli is a family owned corrugated company from Northern Italy serving all of Europe with the latest innovative corrugated packaging solutions.


For the Thimm Group, the goal is to expand industry leadership by deploying digital print solutions across their multinational network of corrugated converters.  This includes the HP PageWide T1100S for high-volume digital pre-print and a hybrid inline solution planned with partner Conprinta Belt-Systems for overprint varnish as well as special pantone colors.


For Ghelfi, a formerly “pure flexo” shop, the relationship with HP enables them to improve their time to market advantage today, while building a relationship with a reliable strategic partner for the long term. After careful research of digital corrugated print vendors, they were impressed by HP’s technology leadership and commitment to corrugated, embodied in the single-pass water based technology for digital corrugated print. .


For both customers the benefits of the HP PageWide T1100S Press are clear:


  • First, in terms of increased efficiency, run lengths of up to 50,000 sqm can now be produced more cost effectively, with minimal lead times resulting in significantly less inventory and substantial savings across the supply chain.
  • Second, with digital print, every box can be different making for more personalized packaging, cost efficient versioning and the ability to embed unique security or promotional codes onto every container.

HP is a leader in digital high-volume inkjet printing and the transformation from analog to digital in package printing, with special emphasis on corrugated. Customers such as Ghelfi and the Thimm Group are partnering with HP PageWide Web Press to strategically convert their analog printing processes to  digital. They rely on HP to be a committed partner for print and finishing solutions that deliver maximum speed, quality and productivity as corrugated converters enter the digital age.
