LIC Packaging chooses HP PageWide T1190 Press

LIC Packaging Spa of Italy has purchased a new high-volume inkjet HP PageWide T1190 Press. The investment makes LIC the first converter to own HP’s complete portfolio of presses for corrugated packaging and display applications, after taking the lead with HP PageWide C500 digital printing services in Europe.

The six-colour HP PageWide T1190, a 2.8m wide solution running at 305 linear metres per min, will be installed at LIC’s northern Italy factory in the first half 2021.

“With this new capability and our existing HP C500 sheetfed press, LIC is well positioned to transform the corrugated graphic packaging and display manufacturing in Europe with an all-digital strategy, offering both mainstream productivity and premium quality,” said Piero Bertoldo, President at LIC Packaging.

The HP PageWide solutions enable LIC to offer an enhanced sustainability offering to its brand customers with digital on-demand technology, recyclability and water-based inks. The T1190 press digitally pre-prints corrugated liners, enabling LIC to take full advantage of its corrugator capabilities on site.

“LIC’s digital expansion with HP will enable it  to continue to disrupt the corrugated packaging supply chain, driving greater business efficiency for themselves and their brand customers, while providing the flexibility and agility to respond to dynamic market needs,” said Ted Samotis, Director Go-to-Market,  HP PageWide Industrial.
