Produce color jobs 33% faster and gain overall cost savings

 
Using HP Indigo’s EPM feature, color jobs use only three inks instead of four, eliminating black ink. Now you can produce color jobs 33% faster while gaining overall cost savings. Jobs printed using EPM maintain HP Indigo’s renowned print quality, while covering a wide color gamut—including black. When choosing EPM mode, the cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (CMYK) job is sent to the print server and the conversion to CMY is done by the print server. Prepress work is not affected and jobs are prepared as usual.

For example, for commercial printing the HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press prints color using CMYK at 120 pages per minute (ppm). In EPM printing, speed increases to 160 ppm, for a full increase of 33% in productivity. When printing a labels and packaging job in EPM mode on the HP Indigo WS6600 Digital Press, you can print 33 more feet per minute and 13,860 more feet per shift—increasing productivity by 33%.
 

Deep color without black ink

 
EPM covers a very broad color gamut, including black, while saving time and ink used for the black separation. Thin layers of HP Indigo ElectroInk dry on a rubbery blanket that covers the ITM cylinder and the final image is transferred to the substrate as a ready dry film. This process enables the higher color saturation needed to reach dark color tones without black ink, including black text as small as 7 point.
